The Punt, Pass and Kick and Soccer Challenge are fast approaching. Saturday August 25, 2018. Registration starts at 10:30 am and the competitions start at 11:30 am. We are looking for a great turnout from our local youth. There is also a need for many volunteers to help sign up the youth, keep score, and supervise. Hopefully the weather will be warm and sunny. Last year’s completion saw a large increase in numbers from the past years even with the rain. Thank you to The Centre for allowing us to do this during Corn Fest.
