The Thompson Local News


Sandra Ross-Hitch and Murray Kissick have been appointed as the co-chairs for the 2018 Manitoba Winter Games host society.

 

Both have been heavily involved in many different aspects of Thompson and both were involved in the winter games when were last here in 1994. Ross-Hitch currently serves as the president of the Thompson Rotary Club, and was on the torch relay committee leading up to the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games. Kissick has been involved in minor hockey, the Thompson Golf Club and the school district of Mystery Lake.

 

Mayor Dennis Fenske said that the co-chairs were selected for their continuing record of excellence in serving our community as leaders and organizers. He also added that they are confident that Ross-Hitch and Kissick will bring out the best in us as we move forward with the games.

 

Thompson was awarded the games after the town of Virden had to withdraw as a host due to lack of volunteer commitment.

 

The games are set to take place a little over a year from now and will include events such as archery and hockey among others.
