Annual Octoberfest Event fast approaching! Bring your friends and family to this fun filled evening. Great band & dancing, wonderful auction items (get all of your Christmas shopping done early!!), hot off the grill smokies, a fabulous opportunity to get to know more of the Ocean family and a good fund raising opportunity for Ocean Athletics. Honestly - this is such a fun night and certainly a much better way to raise funds for the club's programs than selling chocolate bars door to door!! Contact Rhonda Hanna for tickets and to donate something for the auction email@example.com

Congratulations Coach Ted!!! A big congratulations to Coach Ted for his Triple Crown win at the recent North American Orienteering Championships held in Arnprior Ontario (just outside of Ottawa). Orienteering is the sport of reading a map while running very quickly in the forest to find control points on a designated course. Ted won the Men's 55 Class Sprint, Middle and Long Distance events. If you want to see what Ted's Long Distance map looks like go here. Club members will have a chance to try some orienteering in December when a meet will be held locally in Crescent Park. More information to come.
