As most of you are aware Bill Wedlake has officially retired from his position as Athletic Director here at the University of Winnipeg as of April 1st. As a coach and administrator Bill's career was very influential in the schools, the University, the sport world and the community. Appropriately a reception has been organized to honour his career. We invite all of Bill's colleagues, friends, supporters and Wesmen family to come and enjoy a great night of storytelling, friendship, food and drink.
