Thanks to our volunteers from Reynolds High School, who do a great job of managing the concession and serving up the great food. Thank you to Kirby’s Source for Sports for their continued support to Saanich Lacrosse and the 3 On 3 prize tables. And thanks to Andrea Wentz for providing the Tiger Gear every year!
Thanks to Andy Stuart and all of the Tyke / Mini Tyke coaches and managers for helping out and making sure things ran so smoothly.
