The Warriors didn’t let a little rain dampen their enthusiasm this past Saturday. The event was moved to a new location this year which was the partial result of the wildly wet spring and restricted field access. This year’s Punt-Pass-Kick Competition and Registration Day was held at Bayshore Park in the outdoor Sens rink. The last minute switch worked out perfectly and when all was said and done, everyone left having had a tonne of fun.
Dan Crabtree, VP of Finance for the Warriors, said of the event, “we have to work hard to get word out about our programs. This event has always been a great launch of our registration season so we were glad to find a new location that would allow us to host Warriors Day again this year. It was a great day.”

Thanks to everyone that came out. BBQ was great and the free Warriors event saw lots of new faces which were getting exposed to our great sport. Next up – Girl’s Spring Touch Football, the return of our Spring Flag Football after a 10 year hiatus and of course our Spring Tackle Football tryouts. Never a dull moment with our Warriors!
