Neil Salkus
It is with a very heavy heart that we share with you the news of the death of Neil Salkus, one of the founders of BCO Volleyball Club.  An icon in our North Shore volleyball community, Neil served as BCO President for many years, as a mentor for many of our current coaches, and as a coach for countless numbers of young players at BCO and at Handsworth Secondary School.  Neil always devoted himself to others and we will forever be grateful.  He has a great man.

We express our deepest condolences to Neil's family and friends.
