Mayor Larry White

District of Tumbler Ridge

Dear Larry:

On behalf of Hockey Canada I would like to thank the District of Tumbler Ridge for its hospitality and support during the 2009 National Women?s Team Spring Conditioning Camp.

The entire community embraced the presence of the team which was clearly demonstrated by the Lakeview Inn & Suites and ShopEasy combining to do a tremendous job of providing accommodation and meals for player and staff. The training facilities at the community centre and the golf course along with the expertise of various local hiking trail experts did an excellent job of meeting the physical conditioning needs of the team. The time spent training in Tumbler Ridge provided a solid start to the Olympic journey for the 2009-10 season.

Thank you once again for your hospitality and the team is looking forward to progressing on the continued road towards Vancouver 2010.

Warm Regards,

Bob Nicholson

President ? Hockey Canada
