  • Rant N Roar Newsletter - March 1st, 2019 What an exciting Friday at the games!  The female hockey team took on Team PEI in a nail biter that went down to a heartbreaking loss in a shoot out.  On the other side of the Downtown arena, our male curling team kept the momentum moving forward securing themselves in a medal match.  The determination witnessed this week by our athletes, solidified the fact that they very much wanted to compete at these games.  I have seen the acknowledgment of the magnitude of competing at the Canada Games and what that really means.  Within the contingent of the 3600 athletes that have the opportunity to attend the games,  there is a realization that future Olympians are within this group.  Let ...
