Hillside Night of Lights:
We still have a lot of Hillside Tickets for sale. They are $5 each and you do not have to be at the event on Nov. 18th to win one of the many door prizes. Top Prize is a $4000 travel credit. The Program keeps the entire $5. They can be sold as raffle tickets even if people are not able to attend. If you would like to sign out some tickets to sell please let me know at email@example.com.
Spartan Shootout Sponsors:
See the Fundraising page for the sponsor letter for the Spartan Shoot Out program. Please send me any artwork and let me know what size of ad you have sold, the contact name with mailing address ( for thank you’s) and the name of the player. Your player will receive a 65% credit of the cost of the ad towards travel costs so this is a great opportunity to reduce cost. Ad details can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
See the Fundraising page for the information for the meat sale we are doing. This is a huge hit as the meat is great quality. The chicken strips are a hit among players. Thanksgiving is a great weekend to collect orders from family and friends.

4 Claremont Spartan lacrosse alumni were selected in the National Lacrosse League at the annual league draft recently held in Toronto.
- Nate Wade (grad 2013) was drafted 29th by the Vancouver Warriors
- Dallas Wade (grad 2013) went 44th overall to the Vancouver Warriors
- Zac Christianson (grad 2014) went 46th to the San Diego Seals

Congratulations to all the guys and their families on an outstanding recognition and opportunity.
Parents/players – attached is a flyer we will be distributing throughout the Claremont area this week that will get picked up Sat morning.
This can also be used for the guys to distribute around their streets as well that they can pick up prior to Sat morning and bring to the depot. If all guys can target to bring in approx $50 prior to the start Sat that would be a huge contribution.

After an awesome 2 weeks of hard work and effort physically, it’s time to take that same attitude and work ethic as we pick up the sticks tomorrow and transition our training to lacrosse on field. Friday was also a great day for our 9/10’s as they were down at Cordova Bay Elementary helping the younger students with their Terry Fox Run.
We will try lacrosse days at Claremont for the rest of Sept and most of Oct but weather and field conditions will determine when we begin use of the turf field. I’m anticipating that to be mid to late Oct and will make sure all have lots of warning.
Almost all gear is ready, available, and screened but still waiting on a few items – I’m hopeful that at some point this week it will be ‘Christmas at Claremont’ and the boys will receive this years clothing and equipment. I’ve been instructed that no gear/clothing is to distributed if deposits are not made so…please don’t shoot the messenger and if there is a problem please let myself or school principal (Peter Westhaver) know and we will work it out as I don’t want any of the guys to be excluded.
Until gear is handed out I’m asking that the boys wear their own for the start of the week.
We will have lacrosse Mon, Tues, and Thur this week. Wed is parent night and early closure so that day is a PE/training day and Fri will either be lacrosse or strength training.
Parent night/Meet the Teacher is this Wed (Sept 26) from 6-8:00. I haven’t seen the schedule for the evening yet but..traditionally the ‘block rotation’ does not leave us enough time to go thru all that is needed for the CSI lacrosse program so I am tentatively suggesting that we will have an entire CSI parent meeting/Meet the teacher from 5:30-6:00 to allow a little more time to review all that is needed. Will confirm the time and room tomorrow when at work and do hope that at least one parent can attend (despite the early time).
Dates to remember are:
Oct 6 – Bottle Drive (have the boys canvas and start collecting their own neighbourhoods)
Oct 7 – Victoria Marathon (approx 7:30 a.m. to noon)
As I said it has been a fantastic start and excellent two weeks – look forward that to continuing.
