Peace River Summer Games Announcement
How long has it been since you’ve ventured up north? The Alberta55 plus Provincial Summer Games are in Peace River this summer, June 16-19 and are certain to be an excellent time for thousands of 55+
athletes. It will be a great ‘return to normal’ with all that has happened since the last Summer Games in Medicine Hat in 2019.As in past years, we would like to see as many teams as possible made up of CSMS League players heading up Highway #2 to compete and represent both our part of Alberta and the CSMS League.
Teams for the Summer Games are formed via Zone and age bracket.That’s Zone 3 for those living inside Calgary city limits, and Zone 2 for those living outside the city limits. Already Zone 2 has me (60+), Bruce Hall (65+), Terry McKechnie (70+) and Nick Radmanovich (75+) forming teams. If you live in Zone 2 and want to take part, please contact these
people. Thus far, though, we’ve heard nothing about teams going from Zone 3 -Calgary!
So, this is a shout-out to encourage those in Zone 3 get off yer duffs and form up teams in those age brackets! As you decide to form a team, Zone 3, you can coordinate with Dan Guglielmin, Activity Director at
Zone3Activities@Alberta55plus.ca. Perhaps you’ve been thinking about trying your hand at running a
team. Well, this is a great opportunity to give it a one-off try and see how you like it. Why not give it a whirl? Teams just don’t happen unless someone steps up to the plate. The League can help you withhow to contact potential players.
I hope we’ll have a BIG contingent of CSMS League players coming back with medals around their necks from Peace River. Please consider stepping forward to take the initiative!
