Be a Part of Olympic History

A warm welcome to new website editor Eric Bell who kicks off his LCA experience with this post.  Yay!

Do you love the Olympics but don’t have the time to make it to Vancouver this winter? Good news- you don’t even have to leave your own city to experience the magic of the 2010 Winter Olympics! The Olympics Committee made some last minute changes, and Regina has been selected over Vancouver to host this winter’s Olympics!

Of course I am totally kidding. And I apologize if you believed me and told all of your friends and everyone laughed at you. But if you want to get in on the Olympic action, and don’t plan on leaving Regina, then you need to check out this event:

Our city has been chosen as a host community for the Olympic torch relay, which will take place on Saturday January 9, 2010, at the Sportplex (1717 Elphinstone St.)

The afternoon and evening is set to be jam packed with events, including food, a winter carnival, dancing and even fireworks. (that’s right, fireworks!) So, if you want to have tons of Olympic-related fun, bring your family and enjoy the spirit of the 2010 Olympics on a chilly Saturday afternoon.
