Congratulations to the CNS Avalanche on their third consecutive post-season qualification. The team narrowly missed qualifying for Provincials but represented Calgary at Intercities in Edmonton. They were undefeated against the strong competition and came away with the silver medal. Thanks to our great players, team officials and parents for making this another amazing season.
Congratulations to Eldon Kearl, who won the Gift of Flight with Westjet!
HUGE thanks to Steve Oldridge for the incredible donation of his employee privilege to our team. Our raffle raised approximately $9,600 in profit for our team and this would not have been possible without Steve's donation. We will be presenting Steve with a thank you gift in Minnesota, as he will be there with his daughter's team.
Thanks again to all our players and their families for selling tickets and promoting our team so politely at the retail outlets. We had several compliments on the girls' manners and kindness. One elderly lady was taken aback when the girls offered to help carry her groceries. Great work CNS Fiore!
