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.
