I am writing this letter to send out a big thank you.
Invermere, B.C., what a great place to grow up. Two years ago four young men had a dream to be champions. A dream is only a dream without the help of others.
The Invermere Curling Centre members and board of directors unselfishly helped us with ice time, uniforms, league and bonspiel dues, game experience and coaching programs. Club members eager to assist included Michelle, Christine, Jack, Rick, Vic, Slap and Dave.
Local media helped publicize our dream. The Valley Peak, Pioneer and The Valley Echo were always eager to spread the good news.
When we needed money for travel, the parents’ fundraising efforts were met with open arms by local organizations and charities who could see the value of supporting our youth. Radium Winterfest, the Radium Car Club, 1st Invermere Beavers and Scouts, Verge for Youth, Windermere Valley Golf Club, Sign Artists and all the people who donated bottles at the Invermere Bottle Depot — thank you.
With your help our dream has come true.
We are the juvenile Kootenay Zone champs and we hope to make you all proud at the BC Winter Games.
Ian, Sam, Logan,
Garrett and Justin
Invermere Junior Boys
