The Snohomish County Sports Commission was instrumental in the ability of the Harbour Pointe badminton club to host the US Junior Nationals. Harbour Pointe is a new facility and we were not familiar with Snohomish county at all. The sports commission helped us establish hotel restaurant and banquet facilities is a very organize method that worked seamlessly with our web page. Without their help we would not have been nearly as organized as we ended up being. The feedback from the participants has been excellent and we have been awarded another national event this coming spring.
