Clubs and groups are happy to have students join at any time during the year.  Some have limited seasons, so it is recommended that students check with the  teacher supervisor to find out meeting dates and activity schedules. Teachers and support staff volunteer their time for these extracurricular activities to enrich everyone's school  experience.

Race day was the first time back for Mr. Lonsbrough in 9 years, with a big thanks to the BCSSMA for running things and helping in getting the team sorted out on arrival. We thought we were done after the 4th run down the strip when the car over heated after throwing the fan belt, however, the whole team pitched in to help and were back on the track for the elimination rounds.

Fastest run was made by Ben Lawson at 13.579sec. @ 101.70 MPH, beating Mr. Lonsbrough's current fastest time. Jack Newell, the team's second driver, had a best time of 13.80sec. @ 100.71 MPH.

Thanks to the parents that helped us get there and supported the team - Nick Lawson, Gail Trinkl and Rob Newell.
