2009 Southern Alberta Summer Games

2009 Southern Alberta Summer GamesHere’s another event that popped up in my Facebook messages a little too late. The games this year are being held in the Crowsnest Pass from July 8th – 11th and there are 27 different events for participants to choose from. The reason this message might be a late is because the registration deadline was June 3rd, and there is “no late entries accepted”. As explained by Kara Hurkens, the Regional Director for the City of Medicine Hat in the 2009 Southern Alberta Summer Games, last year they took 205 athletes from Medicine Hat, and this year they want more. She also states that Medicine Hat always gets beat out by Lethbridge or Taber and this year, she wants Medicine Hat to be better represented.

There is many different events in the games including cycling, baseball, soccer, track and field, and even photography and cribbage for those less athletically inclined – keep in mind there is absolutely no age restrictions from the summer games, anybody can participate. That is of course if you got your registration form in before the 3rd. There’s even a “Handgun” event where participants fire handguns, which I think would be quite interesting since I’ve never fired an actual handgun before.

    Weird that Medicine Hat always gets beat out by Lethbridge and Taber, well maybe not lethbridge since it has a population over 20, 000 greater than Medicine Hat … but Taber? With a population of 7,591? Must be all that corn.

    I rock at Cribbage, and I am not athletically inclined. Score! Except I haven’t played it in a year, and that was twice, and then like 10 years before that.

    Haha, Sean you may be a little rusty. I want in on some cribbage. Cribbage is not only my favorite game, it’s my occupation 😉
