Word from the President

A grand hello to the Boréal gang!

I hope this message finds you in the best of spirits and that you're all making the most of Galarneau's presence! Here, on my end, I'm taking off to California for a couple of days, catching up on some much-needed rest, especially after having lived through such a remarkably eventful summer.

As many of you already know, I have had quite the privilege of serving as President for the LGBTA Gay Pride Celebrations this summer. Now, only two weeks since that fabulous event took place, I can happily announce that our assessment is truly positive, as is the case on all fronts! This memorable project, undertaken in less than 8 weeks, was made possible thanks to the dedication of several members of VOLLEY BORÉAL and Équipe Montréal. At the heart of the Organizing Committee are: Michel Villeneuve, Jean-Sébastien Boudreault and Stéphane Proulx. Office staff include Jeffrey Spivock, Louis-Alain Robitaille, Bobby Gardner, Sylvain Marchand, Raymond Allen and Daniel Vaudrin. Through their dynamic efforts and complete devotion, we have once again witnessed how truly committed members of our sport community are! A big thanks to all! Check out the photo gallery at Célébration LGBTA's website: www.celebrations-lgbta.org

The 2007-2008 Season for VOLLEY BORÉAL promises to be exceptional with the 24th edition of Big Jump, as well as this year's 5th Happy Birthday Tournament and Odyssee's 10th Edition. We're bound to make history with such a variety of festivities, no doubt! We encourage all to join and participate in great numbers and if you can, you are more than welcome to help us with the organization of these events!

As for the Club's regular activities, the administrators have decided to emphasize all recreational and competitive facets of the Club. As a matter of fact, our aim is to register 56 regular players and 10 replacements for Monday nights. We're also hoping to register 4 teams for the L.V.B.M.'s weekly league, not to mention 16 players (or 2 entire teams) for Wednesday's training night. Many new members have already expressed an interest in joining the Club. Count yourself in during the 4 Pre-Registration Nights at Cocktail if you want to guarantee your spot!

Wishing you all a wonderful time amongst us!

Éric Pineault
President and Founder
Volley Boréal, Montreal's GLBT Volleyball Club
