An amazing weekend is unfolding here in Kamloops for the OK Regional Celebration Meet.

Thanks to all the swimmers, officials, teams, coaches and volunteers for coming out and making it happen!

After a moment of remembrance, the first recipient of the Ross Hoshizaki Memorial Bursary was announced, Trinity Blacklock.

And then just before the morning began, the whole Region got the vibes high with an awesome cheer 🙌

January has been a busy month for the Board of Directors. In September we hired a new office manager. That person is not longer with our association. I apologize for missed phone calls, emails, and mail. Volunteer members of the Board are working to answer the backlog of emails, phone calls and mail. The good news. We have hired a new office manager. Look for a post introducing her later this week. In the meantime, we will continue to work on answering all correspondence as quickly as possible. Our new person will be in place by February 1st, just in time for the Provincial Board meeting Jan. 31-Feb 1.
Thank-you for your cooperation
Danny Schilds,
President, BCSSA
