Aug 16 2012 - NCCWMA and Canadian Masters Track & Field Championships 2012
Thank you and congratulations to everyone on our organizing committee, those who officiated and the many who volunteered for Saint John 2012 - NCCWMA - CMA Masters Track
We especially want to commend our many athletes who gave of their time to volunteer at the meet. You went above and beyond making us all proud.
We are also very proud of the many SJTC athletes who trained and competed at this event. Well done.
It was an overwhelming success and the feedback from the participants was all positive. I lost count of how many times people complemented me on the volunteers, our athletes, our smiling faces and how much they loved our facility. In our usual friendly Saint John way, we Wowed them. NCCWMA and CMA officials told us it was their best championships ever!
None of this would have been possible without your efforts. You all worked very hard and should be proud of the championships we hosted.
Sincerely, Bill MacMackin
