LETTERS: Fantastic event

The Summerland Orca Swim Club wants to thank the residents of Summerland.

The Summerland Orca Swim Club wants to thank the residents of Summerland, particularly those residents living in lower Summerland and the businesses in lower Summerland, for their patience, at our recent 15th Annual Orca Sprint Triathlon.

We had another fantastic event with almost 350 athletes participating; 212 of which were under the age of 16.  This popular event brings so many athletes, both young and old, to Summerland to enjoy our wonderful area and amenities.

We get many comments about the “family-friendly” nature of our triathlon.  Also, a special thanks to all the vendors who participated, to all of our sponsors and our draw prize sponsors and particularly to our title sponsor BCMINNS who sponsored the Kids of Steel portion of our event and Dirty Laundry Vineyard who sponsored  the Adult Sprint Triathlon portion of our event.
