For those of you who’ve been around the website for years, you’ll know that I often post many pictures each season. I no longer live in the country however and, while I’m in Montreal every 3 weeks or so, getting to meets and finals is quite difficult. There are some pictures in our Photo Gallery that I got while in town just before Time Trials but that will be all the Photogallery pictures we have for this season. Happily, Jean Bertand has numerous shots of the Big Meet on his Flickr site at: https://flic.kr/s/aHsm2zLazw. Thank you Jean for sharing these great shots!

We’d like to remind you all that the election for NAA President will take place at our August 28th meeting. Steve Batah, our current President has done an exemplary job these last years but it is time to pass the torch to someone new. If you or anyone you know is interested in being the next NAA President, we encourage you to contact Steve Batah at email@example.com or (514) 869-6811 or just speak to him at one of the Finals events this week.
A description of the role of NAA President can be found right here on the website in the Download area.
