Sports Day in the CAF

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - LE MOT DU COMMANDANT -

On Oc­to­ber 20th, the PSP team wel­co­med more than 600 people to the Base Re­crea­tion Cen­ter as part of Ca­na­dian Ar­med Forces ( CAF) Sports Day.

The goal was once again to pro­mote heal­thy li­fe­styles and to in­tro­duce mem­bers of CFB Ba­got­ville to new ac­ti­vi­ties. To do this, two new sports were ad­ded to the pro­gram that was of­fe­red last year: the obs­tacle course and Kin­ball. The obs­tacle course consis­ted of exe­cu­ting eight mi­li­ta­ry- ins­pi­red exer­cises over a dis­tance of 400 me­ters as qui­ck­ly as pos­sible. Kin- ball, for its part, is a team sport that consists of get­ting the most point by using stra­te­gy against other teams while using one en­or­mous ball. These two new ac­ti­vi­ties were a suc­cess! In or­der to lead by example, com­man­ders from 3 Wing and 2 Wing took part in the ac­ti­vi­ties. As much at the tri­ath­lon as when cha­sing the ball, they stood out by their de­ter­mi­na­tion and their ef­fort. The PSP team took this op­por­tu­ni­ty to col­lect do­na­tions and do­nate them to the Base Cha­ri­ty Fund. A to­tal of $ 703 was rai­sed for the cause.
