International Racquetball Federation 2013 Highlights

Dear Friends of Racquetball

Attached is a quick overview of the efforts of the IRF to develop
Racquetball worldwide.

I am also happy to inform you that the WSRC has donated $5000 to the IRF
from this year's event. Further donations will be made after the first of
the year once the 2014 budget projections are made.

It has been an excellent year for the sport along with expansion of
Racquetball on 4 continents.

None of these developments could have been accomplished without your ongoing
support.

We would like to remind you that the 2014 edition of the World Senior
Racquetball Championships will be held August 26th to August 30th.

This will be the 30th anniversary for the WSRC and we invite you all to come
and celebrate with us.

Have a great holiday season and we will look forward to seeing you at the
2014 WSRC.

Regards,

Luke St Onge
