Heavy Hearts in our Ringette Community

It is with profound sadness that the Calgary Ringette community has learned of the tragic passing of a young member of our Ringette family.   Meghan Bomford, member of NW U19A Grit passed away October 18th from a vehicle accident.

Her teammate Kelsey Nelson, and father, Shaun Bomford were also injured and are in critical condition.  Shaun has coached for both Cal-East and NW.  Kelsey and Meghan both volunteered as Junior coaches.

On behalf of the Board and membership of the Ringette Calgary Association, our thoughts are with their families, friends and teammates during this very difficult time.
