Thanks for participating in Le Conqueror Squash Challenge!20150125_143949_resized_1
I would like to personally thank everyone for joining us for the first ever Le  Conqueror Squash Challenge that was hosted at the YMCA January 23-25, 2015. It is the enthusiasm, good sportsmanship, and flexibility of all the participants that helped to make this tournament such a big success!

Funds raised will be donated to the Segal Cancer Centre (JGH Hospital) and Cedars Cancer Institute (RVH Hospital) for Breast Cancer Research.

I’d like to thank the certified Referees for donating their time to this tournament. We all know what a difficult bunch of players we can be. And believe it or not, these guys do it out of love for the game. So special thanks to Barry Faguy, Gerry Poole, Karl Dubois, Viano Oghenekevwe, Danielle Belanger, Wilson Miller and Gio Piccolino

SUPER-special thanks to our fantastic Team of Volunteers — without whom I could not have run this tournament as smoothly. So — thank you to Vanessa Noreau, Andrea Leber, Heidi Muchall, Albert Zakay, Marnie Guglielmi, Sam Guglielmi and Corinne Balaila.conqueror tournament
