Congratulations to everyone who helped organize and run the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association’s National Men’s Basketball Championship last weekend. A lot of work went into planning and preparing for this event, and based on the feedback it was worth the effort.
I want to thank the organizing committee and all of the volunteers who helped over the 4 days. You did an amazing job of welcoming the teams, their staff and supporters to our college and you represented us well on the national stage.
I also want to congratulate our Mohawk Mountaineers Men’s Basketball Team. The end result wasn’t what you had hoped for but you played hard and made Mohawk proud. The same can be said for all our varsity athletes in 2015. We are proud of how you’ve represented Mohawk.
Below is a small sample of some of the feedback we’ve received from the tournament:
“I wanted to thank you all very much for your outstanding hospitality last week. It was a truly memorable event that will stay with the students for a lifetime. From the venue, to the hotel to the great volunteers, it was something special and you guys did an amazing job pulling it all together!”
“I am so pleased to have the opportunity to say thank you for your efforts at the 2015 CCAA National Men’s Basketball Championships. The entire Mohawk staff put on an outstanding show, in which your institution and the entire OCAA in the shone on the biggest stage of CCAA sport.”
“Thanks so much for a wonderful championship! We had a great time and it was a first class event.”
