February 18, 2019 -
On Saturday, February 16th, Luke McMillan, Thomas Moline, Riley Naujoks, Troy Wilson and Brandon Urciuoli participated in the Wild Winter Canoe race at Shaw Park in support of DASCH and St. Amant. These fine young Rifles raised over $1,000 in support of people with intellectual disabilities in Manitoba.
On their first heat they had a difficult time navigating the turn, but still managed to win their heat. On their second heat they improved their time by over 5 seconds and won their second heat as well, but came up just short of the finals by 1 tenth of a second.
A great job by these young men in their races, but more importantly a great job raising over $1,000 dollars for their fellow Manitobans. Our organization is very proud of them! Rifle up!
Billeting a Winnipeg Rifle player involves providing accommodation as well as the “family” atmosphere in terms of meals etc. As Winnipeg Rifles players range in age from 17-22 the “family” atmosphere is one that is generally expected a young man of that age would receive at their own home.
Billeting can be a rewarding experience for both the player and billet family.
Billeting is often the preferred method for our 1st or 2nd year players in the age 17-18 year old range as they transition to living on their own. Our 17-18 year player’s parents often prefer billeting for their son.
Billets are paid a monthly agreed upon amount from the player or player’s family.
