BC Games flag officially passed to Abbotsford

On Sunday February 28, 2016, the BC Games flag was officially passed to Abbotsford 2016 BC Summer Games President, Steve Carlton. In a presentation during the Closing Ceremony that took place at the South Okanagan Events Centre, Bill Bidlake, Penticton 2016 BC Winter Games President reminisced on the journey and acknowledged the fun to come for Abbotsford. With 149 Days to Go until the Abbotsford 2016 BC Summer Games, Steve accepted the flag and waved it proudly.

A number of Board members from the Abbotsford 2016 BC Summer Games had the opportunity to travel to Penticton and see the BC Winter Games in action. The on-site learning experience proved to be invaluable for all and a great team building opportunity.

“Penticton was a gracious and outstanding host community. They have set the bar high!” said Steve Carlton. “What a great moment for us, to officially receive the BC Games flag! Watching Penticton come to a close solidified the realization that we have a lot of work to do and that Abbotsford is now centre stage moving forward. We can’t wait to get back to Abbotsford and take all the learnings and feedback we have received here in Penticton and put them into action.”
