Judo BC celebrated 50 years, as a registered society on June 6, 2014 at the Executive Airport Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre in Richmond, BC. The evening’s master of ceremonies was Al Sakai who spoke to the importance of the people who give Judo BC its identity and character. During the course of the night, guests were treated to a buffet dinner, slide show, trivia contest, storytelling and more than a few good laughs.
Judo BC members who submitted content for the 50th Anniversary slide show and Commemorative Book were entered into and draw and Henry Boas, from Penticton Judo Club, won one nights’ accommodations at the Executive Airport Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre Richmond. Jack Mah was the lucky victor of the door prize, a round-trip airfare to anywhere in Canada!
Thank you to Al Sakai and all those who submitted content for their efforts to make this celebration memorable.
