Vancouver, BC (Wednesday, October 22, 2014) – The Vancouver Stealth were well represented by players and staff at the BC Lacrosse Association’s 2014 Annual General Meeting held in Whistler, BC this past weekend.
Along with the business portion of the events, it also featured 16 coveted volunteer awards, attendees were entertained by actors, a drumline, and the Year in Review video. Each year, a theme is created around this two-day event, this year’s being ‘Once Upon a BCLA AGM’, that ended with a Volunteer Awards Banquet on Saturday night named ‘Lacrosse Rules’.
“The BC Lacrosse Association Annual General Meeting is a weekend that brings lacrosse volunteers from across the province to conduct business, reminisce about the past year, prepare for the new season of field and box lacrosse programs,” said BCLA Executive Director Rochelle Winterton. “It’s also the chance to have some fun and games with the BCLA family.”
“It was great to be part of the BCLA AGM this past weekend,” said Stealth President and General Manager Doug Locker. “The BC Lacrosse Association does a fantastic job of promoting the game throughout the Province and did a great job of recognizing the countless volunteers that contribute to that effort. It provided a great opportunity to connect with many old friends and share in celebrating the great successes in the Province over the past year.”
The Stealth were represented by owner Denise Watkins, GM Doug Locker, Head Coach Dan Perreault, Assistant GM Brad Hock, players Tyler Richards, Curtis Hodgson and one of the newest members of the team, forward Johnny Powless.
Prior the AGM, Powless visited Little Ones Elementary School on the Capilano Reserve in North Vancouver, Totem Hall in Squamish and the Squamish Valley Recreation Centre. Powless spoke to the parents and children as well as took pictures with the kids and signed autographs.
“It was nice to see the communities and get a chance to visit some fans,” said Powless. “Seeing the smiles on the kids’ faces, you can tell they’re excited to come to the games this season.”
The BCLA thanked all of the volunteers across BC, from local communities to the provincial leadership, who ensure that lacrosse programs are on the field and floor and are now ready for another exciting season of field and box lacrosse in BC.
