December 2013

It has been a busy month for the BC Games with an announcement of a new Corporate Partner, as well as key events in Mission and Nanaimo.  As we move into this holiday season we wish all of our friends and colleagues the very best for a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Welcome Coast Capital Savings!


Welcome to the newest member of our Corporate Partner Family – Coast Capital Savings.  In Nanaimo on November 19, Raj Wirk, Director of Commercial Banking, made this great announcement in front of a crowd of 130 Key Volunteers and dignitaries.  We are thrilled to partner with such a community-minded company that has made youth a priority.

Mission Torchlighting Ceremony

BC Games Flag

With 96 days to go, the torch was officially lit in Mission marking the countdown to the 2014 BC Winter Games.  Abbotsford-Mission MLA Simon Gibson, and Olympian and Mission BC Winter Games volunteer, Eden Donatelli-Green lit the torch in front of a standing room only crowd.  Thanks to our friends at the Mission City Record and Abbotsford News for great coverage of the event.

Nanaimo Key Volunteer Rally

Spirits were high on November 19, as over 120 community leaders gathered to celebrate at the Key Volunteer Rally for the Nanaimo 2014 BC Summer Games. The event marked a major milestone in the planning process, as it provided an opportunity for all of the Presidents, Liaisons, Directors, and Chairs from the host community to meet together for the first time.  As each one of these volunteers plays a unique and integral role in the execution of the Games, it was important for the group to collaborate and communicate in the early stages of the planning process.  Volunteers were presented with a Games jacket and learned valuable information as part of a WorldHost training session.

Team BC Chefs Announcement

The Prince George 2015 Canada Winter Games will be BC’s chance to shine on home soil.  Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, Coralee Oakes, was visiting Prince George on November 29 and helped announce that Team BC will be headed up by two experienced leaders, Rob Needham as Chef de Mission, and Michelle Collens as Assistant Chef de Mission.
