The Funtastic Sports Society has announced its new board of directors for 2013/2014.

While some of the board members may be society rookies, the man guiding the board is a seasoned veteran.

Vernon lawyer Brett Kirkpatrick was returned as president.

“I’m very honoured to serve a fourth term as president of the Funtastic Sports Society’s new board,” said Kirkpatrick. “I would like to especially thank outgoing directors Cindy Masters, Kyla Macaulay and Roel Van De Commenacker for their service and tireless work within the board and at the annual Funtastic festival.”

Members of the new board were elected at the Funtastic Sports Society’s recent annual general meeting at the Schubert Centre.

The 12-member board is responsible for the establishment of policy and direction to ensure the objectives of the society are met.

The board is also very active in the annual Funtastic Sport and Music Festival, and represents a cross-section of the region’s business and non-profit community.

The 2014 Funtastic Sports Society’s Board of Directors consists of:

President, Brett Kirkpatrick – partner with Davidson Lawyers;

First Vice-President, Sandra Simao – owner of Illusions Hair Design;

Second Vice-President, Akbal Mund – business consultant;

Third Vice-President, Darcy Sochan – realtor with Century 21 Executives;

Treasurer, Steve Cousins – partner with Sladen Moore Chartered Accountants;

Secretary, Diana Williamson – executive director of Vernon Winter Carnival;

Director, Christine Bosworth – business owner;

Director, Dan Proulx – advisor with BCAA;

Director, Tim Reardon – owner of Tutor Tech;

Director, Jim Tennant – store manager of Save-On-Foods;

Director, Val Trevis – office manager with Nixon Wenger LLP;

Director, Deb White – owner of Whitehouse Mortgages.

“We are excited to have four new members join the Funtastic team. Christine Bosworth, Dan Proulx, Jim Tennant and Deb White are all very active in the community and each bring business acumen which will be important in helping to shape the society’s future direction,” said Kirkpatrick.

The society is responsible for staging Canada’s largest slo-pitch tournament and music festival, with more than 4,500 attendees from across western Canada.

Each year the festival contributes $4.5 million in direct economic benefit to the region and has provided $1.5 million in funding support for local sports and recreation initiatives.

The 30th annual Funtastic will be June 27- 30, 2014.
