SAMS Cubs thank community for their support

The Cubs were able to make two trips out of the Valley this season

Submitted by Lori George

The SAMS Cubs worked hard this year to reach their traveling goals. They have been maintaining academics as well as good citizenship, attending practices and working hard to develop individually as well as a team. On top of all that, they have been fundraising enough funds to be able to travel, which is another big time commitment for these young athletes.

This year, we owe a huge thank you to “Got Wood” logging company, Community Forest and WBC Contracting. We are very grateful for the donation of logs that enabled us to have a firewood sale. Not only did this help us to raise funds, it allowed us to build strength physically and as a team. Having a solid fundraiser took a huge stress off of our shoulders, and your support for the youth of the Valley truly means a lot, thank you so much!!

Thank you to Totem Sawmill for allowing us to buck and split the load of logs on their lot. It was a huge convenience for us to be able to work there.

Thank you to Ace Hardware for the materials donated to help the firewood chop run more smoothly. Your contributions are greatly appreciated.

Another thanks goes out to the community members who supported the firewood fundraiser! Without our community, we wouldn’t make it out to compete in tournaments. Everyone was very encouraging to this team of young men, working hard to earn money to be able to leave the Valley and show other teams what we have to offer.

We were able to make two trips out of the Valley this season. Our first tournament was in Quesnel. We met teams who were larger in nearly every sense. The Cubs fought hard every game and received many compliments on their “Never Say Die” approach to the game.

Our second trip, we headed to Dawson Creek BC to compete in single A Zones. We played in the senior boys division which is grades 11 and 12. Our team is made up of mainly grades 8, 9 and 10 with a couple of senior players. Needless to say, we had some tough competition out there as well. Once again, they received many complements on their attitude and style of play. We will continue to train and prepare for next season.

Once again, thank you to our community who continues to support our young athletes in their fundraising goals so that they can get out and experience activities outside of our valley. Each trip will typically cost about 5,000 at the least. We are always grateful for those who see the value in the program.
