Dear HTBC member,

This is a reminder that tomorrow's club meet is cancelled for Easter.  We will resume our club meets April 23rd.  The last club meet is June 4th with 1 more additional cancellation (Victoria Day May 21st).

Junior Districts Results

We are huge supporters of the ODBA Junior District Championships.  Last Sunday we played a huge role in its organizing and operations.  So, we were very happy to see that there were 20 juniors from the Holy Trinity club participating this year.  A special nod to the following juniors: Chi-Chung Cheung, Davin Dai, Edwin Chen, Emily Yu, Emma Souannhaphanh, Ethan Luo, Ethan Qiu, Frank Yu, Jackie Chen, Jenny Lei, Jonathan Chan, Kashyap Achar, Kevin Bai, Matthew Chan, Maxim Chouinard, Mika Toktamyssov, Ryan Girard, and Suvansh Chhabra.  For more info, please go to: http://jrDistricts.odba.ca

Next Season's Registration

For existing members only, registration will open April 30th, and payments must be received before July.  Registration will open to the public in July.  Be warned that last season, by the end of July we reached registration capacity.  On April 30th, go to: http://htbc.odba.ca/registration/

Club Photo Day Next Week (April 23rd)

On April 23rd, at 11:55am, please join us in the main gym for our annual club photo day.  Please wear your Holy Trinity shirt.  And, if you don't have one, please purchase one for $20.  Our club photo is very important to us and to our club.  It shows the diversity and the club pride to everyone that happens to fall upon our club website.  For those in coaching, please be present for the photo.

Club Directorship

On May 14th, we will elect our club directors for next year.  There are 3 Director positions; and, myself, Mike Tran, and Vu Dao intend to run again.  Current members (excluding coaches, assistant coaches, and juniors) are permitted to apply for candidacy.  For those interested, please email me your intent of candidacy and position before Sat May 6th.  The Holy Trinity Badminton Club runs under a Not For Profit model. The 3 Director positions are not paid positions, and is intended to represent the interests of the club and its members.  On Sunday May 7th, your candidates of choice will be announced.

Volunteering as a Club Exec

If you are interested in helping to run the game board next season, please email me back.  Adults or Juniors are welcome to apply.  We are looking for about 8 to 10 execs that can help run the game board, help set up the nets, and take down the nets too.

Badminton over the Summer

While the HTBC club does NOT run over the Summer months, there are clubs and camps that do.  For the Juniors, we recommend joining the Soong Badminton Academy Camps or the RA Centre Summer Badminton Camps.  For the adults, we recommend the Capital Summer Badminton Club or the RA Centre Badminton Club (there's a Summer deal, but it's not advertised).  There's a few more options, but they're hard to find.  If you're lucky, you might find some options by fishing through the listings on the ODBA website: http://www.badmintonottawa.com/WhereToPlay.php.

Thank you everyone who read all the way through.  You deserve a cookie!

Sincerely,
Eugene Lee, Mike Tran, Vu Dao, and Corey Hum
