The 2008 BC Youth Provincial Championships was reported a great success.  In total, 78 kids participated with 102 entrants across 5 events and two age catagories.  It took 10 hours to get through it all!  Congratulations are due to the winners, of course, but also Brad Kelly for organizing everything, all the officials who helped out with refereeing, and last but not least, all the clubs who participated:  Dynamo, Vernon, Capital City Fencers, Renaissance, Vanguard, Scorpions, SLF, Musketeer, LaSalle, North Delta, Fraser Valley, North Van, and Kyle Centre.  Results are posted on AskFred.  Patrick and Heather have their event photos up on flickr.

Brad is doing the right thing here and is "just doing it," with the input, support, and cooperation of the clubs and the BCFA.  This is the true spirit of a volunteer-driven sport like ours, and his is an example we should all admire.  He is keen to develop this youth circuit throughout 2008-09.  Let's all do what we can to help him out!
