The Pincher Creek 2014 Southern Alberta Summer Games have come to an end

After a very successful 4 days of competition and sportsmanship the 2014 Southern Alberta Summer Games have come to an end.  More than 2,262 athletes from 13 regions across Southern Alberta competed for a total of 1,416 medals in 23 sports and cultural events.

The community came alive with over 5,000 additional participants, family and friends.  Restaurants and downtown stores saw an influx of customers and our parks and facilities were utilized to their potential. 
The M.D of Pincher Creek Team made up of 440 local athletes led the Games in points and medals followed by the M.D. of Taber and the City of Lethbridge, respectively. 

This year’s Games will be leaving behind gently used sports equipment to schools and clubs in the community.  The community will also benefit from improvements to the existing beach volleyball court, new dugouts at Lions Ball Park, new lines at the St. Michaels School track and new shale at the Lions Ball Park, Juan Teran and Sproule diamonds.  The Committee, Parks and Public Works staff did an incredible job at preparing each venue for the Games.  Visitors commented on how beautiful the community and facilities looked for the Games.

We would like to say an enormous thank you to everyone who, together with us, welcomed the 2014 Southern Alberta Summer Games to Pincher Creek.  We would like to thank all the athletes and say a special thank you to the vibrant and cheerful volunteers and team.  We were blown away by the number and the dedication our volunteers to create a positive experience for the participants and spectators alike.  Without the help of our Executive Chair and Sport Chair volunteers, the successful organization of the Games would not have been possible.  Lastly, thank you to our sponsors that helped to fund and support the Games and to the Pincher Creek and area businesses that helped to make our visitors feel welcomed. 

The 2014 Southern Alberta Summer Games in Pincher Creek is a great moment for our community, a moment that we will stay in our hearts for generations. The Town and M.D. of Pincher Creek would like to wish Claresholm and the M.D. of Willow Creek the best of luck for the 2015 Southern Alberta Summer Games.
