Each year the Flying ‘M’ Athletics Club has hosted the first competition of the indoor season. For years, the event was known as the Flying M Frolic. In May 2017, Flying ‘M’s head coach passed away. George left us a legacy of sport, knowledge, dedication, commitment and laughter. Since then, the club renamed their event the George Tanner Memorial Classic.
This year, unfortunately the club is just not able to host the event. The stresses of the past year have taken a toll on all of us, and small clubs are no exception.
Thankfully, the event will continue. Athletics Manitoba, with help from all of our members clubs have agreed to work together to make sure this competition stays on the calendar. We will host the event as a team this year on behalf of Flying ‘M’ Athletics Club and in memory of George. The club will take over the event again for 2022.
The TENTATIVE Schedule for the George Tanner Memorial Classic is posted on the Event page.
