2011 Canada Winter Games Opens This Weekend

This Friday marks the opening of the 2011 Canada Winter Games, which are being hosted in Halifax, N.S.  The Canada Games occur every two years and alternate between summer and winter games.  Halifax last hosted  the Canada games in 1969 when the first Summer Games (and the second Canada Games) were held there.  The idea of all the provinces coming together in a single national event to foster competition among over 2,700 of the country’s talented young athletes  in at least 20 sports is remarkable.  Having seen some of the promo videos and other materials for this year’s Games, the schedule, which extends through February 27, looks to be as exciting as ever.
