The 2019 Inter-Provincial Tournament (IP) was a great success. We had 6 ladies and 6 men’s teams competing for medals.
The Manitoba men’s Purple Team , and the Ontario ladies Yellow Team took home the gold,
We had 1 player, Maureen Bryan, win all 12 games. Congratulations to Maureen.
A big thank you to Muriel Burnett for taking all the pictures and putting the results on the website. She did a great job. Everyone was very impressed with her pictures and speed of getting them on line.
Thank you to Norm Lindsay and his assistant Gerry Van Ginkel filling in as Tournament Directors for Marlene Corbeil. They did a tremendous job and we sure appreciate them taking over.
Thanks to Trevor Martin for maintaining the courts, and to Gerrit Dykman for his help,
Murray Burnett and Al Rathgeber were inducted into the CNSA Hall of Fame. Al could not attend so Bob Lockwood Read his induction letter and accepted his HOF jacket and pin. When listening to their bios, I thought they are both most deserving of that honour.
I want to thank all the players and congratulate them. They all represented their provinces with pride and respect.
We had a very good AGM where everyone had input in all goings on in the CNSA and I hope we can move forward with all provinces involved.
We have a lot of knowledgeable people across Canada and we want their input and participation.
The 2021 IP will be held in Quebec City, Quebec. This is a beautiful city and I am sure the IP will be very well attended.
Again thank you to all the players and their families for attending the 6th IP in Ingersoll.
Jim Corbeil President CNSA
