One Year ’til the Games!
Exactly one year from today, the Canada Summer Games–Sherbrooke 2013 will begin! Thousands of participants, volunteers, and visitors will come together to experience the country’s largest multi-sport competition.
August 2nd in the evening, come and celebrate this important occasion with us! Volunteers and the community are invited to gather at Sherbrooke’s Marché de la gare, beginning at 6 p.m. A special “One Year ’til the Games” talk show, hosted by Jean Arel of Radio-Canada, will take place at 6:30 p.m. Great surprises are in store! This will be an ideal opportunity to find out more about the Games and register as a volunteer!
If you can’t make it, you can watch the special talk show live on Radio-Canada Estrie’s Web site :
With the Games one year away, the organizing committee paints a positive picture of its progress. Planning for the key stages is on track and the various services are currently hard at work to make sure that everything is ready for August 2, 2013. Community mobilization and involvement are making a significant contribution to ensuring the event’s success.
Volunteer recruitment is also going well. Venue teams and sport organizing committees composed of “Gold” level volunteers are at work to ensure the competitions run smoothly.
ZigZag’s attendance at summer festivals and events has been stirring up public interest in the Games. More than 1000 volunteers have already registered on the Shebrooke2013.ca Web site.
There are great challenges yet to come! Over the course of the coming year, keep up with the Games’ developments and experience this major adventure with us!
