Liu prepares for Jakarta

Prince Rupert badminton product Adrian Liu will be representing Canada on the international stage for the first time since being disqualified from the Pan Am Games.

He and men’s doubles partner Derrick Ng will be taking on Australia’s Matthew Chau and Sawan Serasinghe in the first round of the 2015 TOTAL BWF World Championships at Jakarta, Indonesia, taking place from Aug. 10 – 16.

Water, water everywhere

Three different age-group camps run by Prince Rupert Recreation are set to begin next week, all focusing on that clear liquid stuff that surrounds the city.

For the 3 – 5 year-olds, “Splish Splash” commences, featuring kids swimming, enjoying the sunshine and having a blast. For the 6 – 8 year-olds, “Water Wonders” welcomes kids to a week of water-filled games.

Finally, for the 9 – 12 year-olds, “Eco Adventures” starts up and has participants exploring nature and focusing on water-related activities. To sign up, call Prince Rupert Recreation at 250-624-6707.

Zone 10 seniors hold final meet

The last meeting before the August 2015 BC Seniors Games between members from Terrace, Kitimat and Prince Rupert was held on July 25 in Prince Rupert.

Among the updates was a drastic shortage of people wanting to play Whist, and the continuation of the game will be in jeopardy in future games if numbers continue to be low.

Zone 10 jackets and shirts have arrived and are being distributed to participants.

The games will take place in North Vancouver from Aug. 25 – 29.

2017 Indigenous Games awarded

Toronto, Ontario will be the next site of the North American Indigenous Games (NAIG), the NAIG Council has announced.

After Regina, Saskatchewan hosted the 2014 iteration last summer, the NAIG international governing body gave unanimous support for the Ontario capital to host, which will be the first time the NAIG will be held outside of western Canada or western U.S.
