Education Day at Nationals

Hey Folks,

We’re here in Surrey, BC, we arrived late last night.  Got up early and had some breakfast at McDonalds, and we’re very happy to sneak in a private practice on the real floor before the day started.  We then had our athlete’s meeting, where I was graciously voted on to the Athlete’s Council for the Boccia National Sport Organization.  It is a new council and we have lots of plans to improve things for Boccia Athletes in Canada. Next up, was a presentation on doping control and how to “properly pee in a cup”, which for us Boccia Athletes is not easy to do.  My wife would have loved the presentation because it has all kinds of legal ramifications.  

They did manage to fit in some official practice later in the day, which was good for everyone.  We’re now waiting for the dinner and the opening ceremonies to start this evening.  

Team play tomorrow, we play BC at 9 am followed by Quebec at 11 am, and then we will be in the finals of the top two teams at 3pm. We’ll hopefully get the chance to let you know how it goes tomorrow evening.  Thats all for now.

Team TK!
