GOOD day Thunder Bay. I wanted to say thank you, on behalf of my athletes and coaches.
We had an amazing time during the Special Olympics Canada Winter Games. The hospitality was off the hook. Now I can only speak to the Victoria Inn, floor hockey and the few businesses we attended, but in chatting with other coaches and athletes I found their experience was similar to mine.
I have to say it was such a joy to meet the people in this community. Everybody was so warm and welcoming, often going above and beyond to support our needs.
The bus drivers the event director and the on-floor hosts and hostesses were so awesome. The majority are now part of our national Special Olympic family. Thank you so very much Thunder Bay for making this an experience of a life time for our athletes.
Well done, very well done.
