Week 4 – And Four More to Go
CBSC has been built upon a spirit of volunteerism spanning over 100 years. And our relationship with Camp Alexandra also has a long history over many, many decades. Last Friday’s food drive to support our friends at Camp A’s Sox Box program was a success, and is another example of our giving spirit. At our next BINGO (August 19) we’ll be doing another Food Drive for their Sox Box program, so mark your calendar – now. (Seriously, go to your calendar and write it down right now – I’ll wait…)
A word of thanks from Camp A:
“A big thanks to all of you at the CB Swim Club- for gathering so many donations for our Sox Box Program!!! We really appreciate this more than words can describe.”
On Monday night, some very interesting creatures, objects and fish were caught on the pier at the Bullhead Fishing Derby. Congrats to the winner of the biggest bullhead, Gwen Betts.
Tuesday was the Snail River Run – click HERE for the results of all of the race categories. It was a challenging day to run with the heat, but the racers prevailed!
August lessons will begin this Monday, August 1st, on BC day.

Congratulations to all our Competitive Artistic Swimmers who competed this week at the Lower Mainland Regionals. Next competition is BCSSA Provincials in Kamloops! The coaches couldn’t be more proud of their performances. Way to go girls!
The Annual CBSC Water Polo Tournament was another huge success this year. With 6 clubs and over 150 athletes spanning three age divisions, there were a lot of waves, cheering and goals erupting from the pool. Crescent Beach displayed our usual great hospitality and a big thank you has to go out to all the volunteers in concession and our wonderful water polo leaders that helped out behind the scenes. The teams now look forward to Regionals next week!

July Regatta Update
The July Regatta provided our sailors with some perfect summer weather, and some challenging conditions! With the sun and moon aligned, mariners were faced with a daunting tidal current and only a light summer breeze with which to take it on. Unfazed, competitors put on an impressive display of tactics and skill for July’s instalment of our regatta series, and we look forward to August when the trophies are up for grabs!
August is a new month, and we have some additional sailing and paddleboard programming for those that want to get salty:
