Alberta 2009 Summer Games update

Extract by Nathane Gallagher, Pass Herald

Community Services Director Cam Mertz and the municipality's Summer Games Coordinator Amy Boeckner spoke about what promises to be one of this summer's biggest events, the 40th anniversary of the Southern Alberta Summer Games.

Mertz said that they are planning 40 events to celebrate 40 years, including nine sports that have never been part of the Games before. He hopes to keep people in the Pass for the entire length of the Games by offering more activities and entertainment, and by keeping things centralized and connecting visitors to tourism opportunities while they are here.

"We have four days to show people what we really have," said Boeckner, who is hard at work as the local games Coordinator. "We expect to see over 2000 participants and their families."

She said there are lots of ways people can get involved, including volunteering and providing sponsorship. Different sponsorship packages are available, and if you register as a sponsor before the end of April, you will be listed as a sponsor in all key marketing and will gain other benefits as well.

Boeckner can be reached for more information at 403-563-8658 or via email at

note: Sounds like it's going to be a 'fun-packed summer' this year. Can't wait!
