A BIG SALUTE TO OUR VOLUNTEERS

6 05 2014

The Prince George Track and Field Club wants to send out a big thank you to all our volunteers that pitched in to help out with the Annual Sub Zero meet on Saturday May 3rd.  It was great to see so many athletes this year (almost 50 more than last year) but that put extra pressure on our volunteers as the schedule got pretty hectic.

You all did a FANTASTIC job and we want to tip our hat and thank you for giving a little of your time.    Next up is the Spruce Capital Meet in June and now that you know what to do just think how easy things will be when you volunteer for that meet :)

BTW – There is a media release that summarizes the results under the “MEDIA” tab while a downloadable PDF with ALL results is available under the “RESULTS” tab.
