The Southern Alberta Summer Games began in 1970 as a grass-roots sport and culture festival with an emphasis on participation, fair play and fun for the whole family. Each year, 13 teams or “regions” from across Southern Alberta bring approximately 2,000 participants to a different southern Alberta host community – making it the largest consecutively-running festival of its kind in Western Canada. The Town of Claresholm did a fantastic job hosting the 2015 Southern Alberta Summer Games!
This year, the County of 40 Mile had 34 participants competing in this year’s Summer Games. With the youngest athlete competing at six years old and the oldest being 77, this really is an event for all ages. Congratulations to all County of 40 Mile coaches and athletes. As a result of your hard work County of 40 Mile walked away with 12 gold, nine silver and four bronze making a total of 24 medals! Our participants competed in a variety of events including archery, athletics, badminton, ball hockey, cribbage, cycling and handgun.
As this year’s regional director I wanted to personally thank you all for making the 2015 Southern Alberta Summer Games an event to remember. I enjoyed getting to know all of the talented athletes and watching them showcase our community’s pride. Congratulations all of you once again, I hope to see you all next year!
