We’ve let the dust settle a bit and are happy to provide a brief report on the success of Personnel Support Program’s (PSP) first ever 4 Wing Spring/Summer Sports Day, hosted on June 30, 2021.

This multi-faceted event consisted of the following activities: 4-player best ball golf tournament, Disc-golf tournament, Try-a-Tri, Yoga, and Jersey Day.

If you haven’t checked out our video of the event yet, see it now:

This was just the morale booster 4 Wing needed to start the summer. It is anticipated that this new event will become an annual event, much like its sister event, CAF Sports Day, hosted every fall. Stay tuned for more details on that event to hopefully be hosted on October 22, 2021!
