I would like to extend thanks to Michael Briones of The NEWS for his excellent coverage of the sports scene in the Parksville Qualicum Beach area. While he covers the major sports, he also makes time and space to cover the lesser-known activities. We have a wide variety of sport groups in our community and he provides an opportunity for them to let people in our area know about these activities.
Michael recently published an article for our Wednesday Afternoon Women’s Badminton group, and what a response we had from the public. Just being able to let the women out there know a bit of history about our group was great. We were able to sign up new players and now have a full complement of players using all three courts at the Coombs Activity Centre (with a few extras, so we can now have a break between games)
So, on behalf of our badminton group, thanks Michael for your coverage and support of local sports — keep up the good work.
