A very succesful evening at the Capilano Rugby Club on Friday Feb. 14

More than 60 people gathered for our annual fundraising event this past Friday Feb 14. We started at 8 pm with people arriving ready to party and bid on the silent auction items.

Rob Lahti, Mt. Seymour Head Coach and a renowned musician, was there to entertain us with his music and there was dancing too!!

Our President, Ron Wakkary informed the audience about our pet project, the grading and improvement of Coyote 7, our training venue at Cypress. This project is being financed by donations, so a project will be set up through the National Sports Trust Fund for donations. All donations over $20 receive a tax receipt. More information on this matter will follow. We want the first stage completed by next season.

A big thank you to all that attended, your generosity is greatly appreciated.
