Summer event!

This years summer event was slightly scaled back due to covid, but still for for everyone attending.    Individual boxed lunches were provided rather than a barbeque. 

The event was by the water in Vanier Park, on the grounds of the Maritime Museum of Vancouver.   Members also visited the museum after the event.

Thank you to all those who were able to make it!


The World Health Organization Declares Africa Polio-Free

Nobody will ever know the identity of the thousands of African children who were not killed or paralyzed by polio this year. They would have been hard to keep track of no matter what because in ordinary times, they would have followed thousands last year and thousands the year before and on back in a generations-long trail of suffering and death.

Instead, no African children were claimed by polio this year or last year or the year before. It was in 2016 that the last case of wild, circulating polio was reported in Nigeria—the final country on the 54-nation African continent where the disease was endemic. And with a required multi-year waiting period now having passed with no more cases, the World Health Organization today officially declared the entirety of Africa polio-free. A disease that as recently as the late 1980s was endemic in 125 countries, claiming 350,000 children per year, has now been run to ground in just two remaining places, Pakistan and Afghanistan, where there have been a collective 102 cases so far in 2020. That’s 102 too many, but there is no denying the scope of the WHO announcement.

It was Rotary, an international nonprofit service organization, that kicked off the polio endgame in 1988 with the launch of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI). That program aimed to leverage the power of Rotary’s 35,000 clubs and 1.22 million members in 200 countries and territories worldwide to make polio only the second human disease—after smallpox—to be pushed over the brink of extinction.

Ram Nayyar - Sport for Life
Ram Nayyar helps others bring their best to every aspect of life, sport, and business. He is one of few coaches to lead teams into medal-round contention at the Olympic Level, yet his focus is on developing skills for life off the court.

He has founded and run several businesses, helped top executives and athletes break through barriers, authored books, delivered comprehensive coaching programs in several countries, and played tabla in live concerts with world-class musicians.

Ram is a Level-Five Chartered Professional Coach (Ch. C. P.), Master Learning Facilitator, and holds a Diploma in High Performance Coaching. He has been Head Coach for the Canadian National Badminton Team, The Canadian National Para Badminton Team, the Mumbai Rockets of the Premier Badminton League, and the Vancouver Lawn Tennis and Badminton Club.
