Langley Considers Bid for 2004 or 2006 BC Summer Games


(From Vancouver Sun, Page B01, 30-May-2000)


Township May Join Games Bid


Langley township is considering making a bid with Langley city to co-host the B.C. Summer Games in either 2004 or 2006. Township council was to discuss the proposal last night. Langley would probably use municipal athletic parks for track and field events and the Walnut Grove Aquatic Centre for swimming, said Jason Winslade, acting director of parks and recreation for Langley.


The cost of hosting the Games, as well as the time needed, is being assessed and will be outlined to council in one month. Langley township and Langley city are already co-hosting the 2000 BC Disability Games in July 2000.


"The residents view Langley as one," Winslade said of the bid to co-host the Games. "It's also better for volunteer and business support throughout Langley, as well as splitting the costs and staff needed.
