2017 Thrifty Foods / Saanich Tigers 3 On 3 Tournament
Another Great Year!
Great weather and an excellent turn out helped make our annual 3 on 3 Tournament, held this past weekend, a huge success. With the exception of one team that was playing in another tournament, every Saanich team participated in this year’s event – including our Midget Female Team! Everyone had a great time!
Once again, a very big thanks to our tournament sponsor, Thrifty Foods, who provided the concession – food, equipment, and cooks – with all proceeds going to Saanich Lacrosse! Store Managers from the Cloverdale, Quadra-McKenzie, Tuscany, and Hillside Thrifty stores donated their time to help out this weekend – THANK YOU!
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.
Finally, a special thanks to the following parents who are always there to help out and make this a great event: Dean Mace, Darryl Walmsley, James Mace, Ian Barnswell, and Steve Johansen.
Enjoy the rest of your season and see you next year!
