Ontario Winter Games

How very exciting. The Ontario Winter Games are coming. It will be held in Rosseau, Baysville, Huntsville, Gravenhurst and all sorts of places in My Muskoka. Cast of thousands! Athletes will be staying in a wide variety of accomodations. There are maps of the venues, as far as Sudbury!

The Ontario Winter Games are scheduled for March 4 to 7, 2010. Opening Ceremonies, March 4th, 2010, Gravenhurst Wharf. Cross-country skiing will be held Jan. 16 and 17. This will prove to be a good practice run for the  G8 2010. With similar numbers expected. Much less security, mind you! 

This is a great opportunity for teachers to learn with their students. I wrote a PowerPoint slide show framework for the kids to use for their research.

 They expect 3,300 athletes, coaches, officials and up to 10,000 spectators. Holy smokes. An estimated $4 million in economic benefits for the local economy. You can register as a volunteer, before Dec. 20. Your local face for the 2010 Ontario Winter Games  <= These are the folks hired to coordinate it all.
