The North Surrey Minor Football Annual General Meeting was held Monday, January 15th where our new executive was elected in a lively vote. We are very excited to see a few new faces on the board…welcome to Kat Houseman, Shar Jaggard and Jolene Lorteau. Despite our setbacks in 2017, 2018 is off to a great start and promises to be a fantastic year.
Thank you to the 2017 executive for their countless hours of service to NSMF and our football and cheer families.
Congratulations to the newly elected 2018 NSMF Executive:
Our 2018 NS AGM will be held at 7:00 pm on Monday, January 15th.
This meeting will be held in the Common Room at Joe Connelly’s complex at 16080 82nd Avenue (Ponderosa Estates), Surrey.
Please park on the street and walk in.
We will hold the January meeting first, followed by the nomination and voting of the 2018 executive.
As you have probably found out by now if you’ve been to Bear Creek Park recently, there was a fire at North Surrey’s Clubhouse in the early hours on Sunday, Nov. 19th. This fire was the second fire in 6 weeks and caused a considerable amount of damage.
While insurance will cover most of the repairs, there are many extra expenses that come with being relocated temporarily (packing, moving, storage, rentals etc.). We are looking to cover these cost with your help to avoid using our football funds normally reserved for gear, uniforms etc.
Our NSMF 2018 Cheer Queen and Princess were crowned November 17th. Congratulations to all 3 contestants Desirae Turner, Aja Cole and Victoria Deacon. All the girls did a fantastic job and the judges had a hard time with their selections.
Congratulations to the NSMF 2018 Princess Desirae and the NSMF 2018 Queen Victoria 👑.

I hope everyone is looking forward to the Flag Jamboree this coming weekend.
Click below for the information package with the schedule and the format of play.
Coaches and parents: Please remember that this is a jamboree for FUN. We are not keeping scores and EVERYONE is getting gold medals at the end of the jamboree. Making sure that each and every player has an amazing time and wants to come back and play football next year is our goal. Teams have been grouped with teams that have had similar records over the season to ensure they have a good chance of having some successes.
A special thank you to all the following people and organizations that made our event not only possible, but a huge success:

It is with a heavy heart that we report that former NSMF T-Bird, Hawk and Eagle, Brandon Nestor passed away on the February 25, 2017 from a head injury after he collapsed in his home on February 11. Pictured here with his daughter, Ciarra, Brandon was only 22 when he passed. His whole family was involved at North Surrey with his step-dad, Darren, as a coach, his mom, Kelley coached cheer and his sister, Tiffany, was a cheerleader.
Brandon loved his 6 years playing for North Surrey so as a tribute to Brandon, his family will be having a balloon release at Bear Creek Park to celebrate his life as a player and one of his passions.
The balloon release will be held on April 29 2017, at 2:00 pm. Please come out to show your NS respect for one of our own.
