Please come and help us pay tribute to Graeme Carswell at our Annual Awards Night Dinner June 16th at Beach Grove Golf Course, at 7pm (doors open at 6:30pm). This year in honour of Graeme, the Falcons and Carswell family, will be awarding one player from the club who best exemplifies the character and courage of Graeme Carswell. The award will be accompanied by a 500$ bursary to put towards their field hockey future. In the families words, the award is described as follows:

The Graeme Gordon Carswell “Follow Your Dreams” Award is given to a student who exhibits a passion for life emulating the manner set by Graeme. Graeme’s family and many friends spoke of the virtues by which Graeme conducted his entire life. We feel that a young person who shows similar traits, is worthy of recognition. In particular we’re considering a person who will:

1. Follow their dreams.
2. Live their passions.
3. Always be kind.
4. Be a positive example for their team-mates in whatever sport they play.
5. Be self-less, humble, spontaneous, modest, charismatic and have a sense of humour.
6. Appreciate and love music.
7. Have compassion and respect for others.
8. Give their time freely to mentor younger people.
9. Be genuine.
10. Make a difference.

We hope that this token of recognition will help you follow dreams!

If you’d like to be part of the dinner & tribute we’d ask that you make a small donation to the fund in lieu of paying for a dinner ticket. The Falcons thank you and so do the Carswells.

We need Falcon members to show up and share the clubs’ need for a “Water Base Turf” in the upcoming Review of Proposed Program which is open to the public. The dates are as follows:

Wed, May 4 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
South Delta Recreation Centre – Hall A
Review of Proposed Program

Sat, May 7 12:30 pm – 3:00 pm
KinVillage Community Centre
Review of Proposed Program

We are asking everyone from falcons that is able to make one of these dates to please show up to one of these meetings and share the need for a Water base turf at Winskill. If we show that we have large enough support, Delta Parks will have to give our proposal a higher priority within their new Winskill Master Plan.

Our goal is to get at least 100 members and supporters to show up!
Please encourage friends, team mates and family to help falcons create a club for the future!
