Port Moody wins first round of GamesTown 2010


The countdown is on to the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver and Whistler. To celebrate BC GamesTown 2010 is running a contest to celebrate communities that are getting into the spirit.

Port Moody is taking part, and has already been awarded a Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games Collateral Prize Pack. At the July 14 Council Meeting Iain Black presented Council with the award for participating in the GamesTown 2010 contest. The prize is an incentive for Port Moody residents to tell the world how local individuals and organizations are making a difference in supporting sport, healthy living, sustainable development, and the Olympic spirit. Mayor Joe Trasolini says “with the recent win, Port Moody is now in the running for the Gold Medal Prize of $100,000 which the City plans to use towards upgrading a healthy living or sport facility – if we can rally enough people’s support and win.”

So, how can residents help Port Moody go for the gold? Submit stories, pictures and videos about all the great initiatives that they, family, friends and, of course, the City are doing to make Port Moody worthy of the GamesTown 2010 title. To submit your entries, or see what other people have submitted, visit Port Moody’s GamesTown 2010 page.

But residents of Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam shouldn’t feel left out. Coquitlam’s Gamestown 2010 page is very active, with tons of entries. They even have their own Twitter account, @Coquitlam2010. And Port Coquitlam has a GamesTown page, too. The contest is far from over, so take a moment and make a submission on behalf of your community.
