I would like to extend my appreciation to the volunteer committee of the 2013 World Financial Group Continental Cup that was recently held at the South Okanagan Events Centre.
To the 268 volunteers who gave their time and energy to make this event a huge success, thank you and congratulations to all of you.
I feel truly blessed to have worked with such a great team. Your spirit and community pride is truly what makes Penticton a great place to live.
A very special thank you to the vice-chairs of the event: Stacey Jones, Cy Gladish and Steve Gjukich. Thank you to Canadian Curling Association and the World Curling Federation for awarding us the 2013 Continental Cup and allowing us the opportunity to showcase our great city. Thank you to the event manager, Terry Morris from CCA, for working with the host committee over the past year.
Thank you to the SOEC and Penticton Trade and Convention Centre staff, who went above and beyond — you were a fabulous group to work with. Thank you to the City of Penticton for your support of this event.
Thank you to the sponsors for their generosity. Without your support this event would not have been possible.
Thank you to the media for your tremendous support. You stood by our side through the months leading up to the event. You put in countless hours during the event and you did it style. Thank you to each and every one of you, we could not have done it without you.
And last but not least to the fans who came out and supported the event, thank you!
