The Thompson Sports News


Thompson is set to host the 2018 Power Smart Manitoba Winter Games.   That gives the city around 14 months to prepare.   City Manager Gary Ceppetelli feels it can be done.

 

“The City of Thompson has hosted the Winter Games previously.  Many of you will likely remember in 1994 when we hosted the winter games so I think that there are the facilities currently  in place and really upgraded from what we had in 1994.”

 

Representatives from Sport Manitoba were able to convince city council that Thompson should host the 2018 Power Smart Manitoba Winter Games.    It was decided in a vote at Monday’s council meeting.

 

Councillor Blake Ellis shares his thoughts on Thompson hosting the games. 

 

“We’ve had a look at the economic impact statement from the Summer Games that were just held in Steinbach.  Those games brought in 1500 out-of-town visitors and 666-thousand dollars in spending.   Thompson’s always been known for hosting provincial events….the Scott Tournaments of Hearts, the Manitoba Tankard, and Roger’s Hometown Hockey.  I believe that we’re going to have the volunteer base to be able to put these games on and do a good job with it.”

 

Virden had originally been awarded the games but backed out due to lack of volunteer commitment.
