Team Work & Laughter Make It Fun

Thank you to everyone who came out last night. It was awesome! Great DVS as we paddled by Mama Duck and her little ones. "Nature at its Finest'. That is what it is all about. Sharing good times and having the opportunity to experience life's many gifts and set our challenges aside for awhile.

We laughed, we worked hard and coaches Lori and Ginette were once again in fine form. Nice to have Trevor on board as well. Hope your shoes dry out. You are all great sports.

We look forward to next Tuesday. - The VIRN Team

Sending A Rose of Appreciation

Greetings,

VIRN says "Thank you!" to Ron Filleul, Regina Board member for all of your time and hard work that you have given to us on the VIRN Board.

Ron has made the decision to step down from the VIRN Board, but will remain an active part of the Saskatchewan team. We will really miss his sense of humour, his wisdom and experience, and his ability to focuss on getting a job done.

Hey VIRN, Let's Paddle!
