Message from BNS President

Hello Everyone and Welcome to the 2011-12 Season of Badminton! Summer has quickly come and gone and I hope you were all able to enjoy some of the few warm days we had! The Canada Games already feel like a distant memory and I would like to thank everyone who helped out in making them so successful. The feedback I received was incredibly positive and the next host of the Games have already contacted me for input on how to put on such a great competition.

This season we have some exciting changes happening on and off the court. Our Board of Directors has grown and I would like to welcome the following new members:

Vice President – Kerry Lynch
Junior Tournament & Player Development Director – Spencer Armsworthy
Fundraiser Director/Special Events Coordinator – Greg Euloth
Coaching & Officiating – Mark Briscombe
Director at Large for South Western – Rick Murphy
Directors at Large for Valley – Mike & Lynn Scott
Director at Large for HRM – Áine Humble

As many of you may have already heard, our association has changed its name this year. We have eliminated the “Association” and will now be known simply as “Badminton Nova Scotia”. Kerry Lynch has been very gracious to donate a lot of his time in creating a new look for our sport which will be made evident by our new logo and new website, which is currently under construction. Many thanks to Kerry for all of the time and effort you’ve put into creating these for us!

The cost of an individual membership has increased to $30 this year. However, this increased cost now includes a BNS t-shirt with our new logo. Sample shirts will be available at the first few tournaments (and the office) so everyone has a chance to try on and select the right size. We have also changed our major sponsor this year and will now be officially affiliated with Yonex.

The badminton community was saddened this summer to learn of the passing of 2 of our members and our condolences go out to their family and friends. In other news three of our Board members have each welcomed new babies to their families. Congratulations to Kerry Lynch, Mark Barry and Mark Briscombe. We look forward to seeing your little ones on the court in the years to come! I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Áine Humble,
Katarina Allen  and Ken Hudson who are officially certified Regional Umpires!

Stay tuned for upcoming Fun Days and tournaments and check out our website for any information you might require.

See you on the court,
Leigh Thibideau
BNS President
