CMWF Chair Steps Down

As of Friday, May 26, 2017, I have resigned from my position as President of the CMWF. Citing my 4 stroke episode 4 weeks ago, I have put my recovery at the forefront of my tasking. At this time, I am appointing John Case as interim President until the next AGM.
My tenure as President was one of the most fulfilling challenges I have ever faced and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. There are so many facets presently in motion and I am very optimistic where our federation and sport is heading.
I am so hopeful that I can eventually return to the sport as I would dearly love to be part of the next couple of years. But, when you are 63 and you have a ten year old daughter at home, health and longevity have to take a front seat to the only sport I know.
Wishing this federation all the best and hoping to see you soon.
Very Best Regards
Dave Desroches
President, CMWF
