The Compass - - SPORTS -

About 20 peo­ple in­volved in recre­ation groups from Con­cep­tion Bay North turned out at a sem­i­nar held March 19 at the Klondyke Ho­tel in Bay Roberts.

Hosted by Ian Flynn of the Bay Roberts Recre­ation Com­mis­sion, the sem­i­nar was organized by Recre­ation New­found­land Labrador (RNL), in part­ner­ship with the Recre­ation and Sport Divi­sion, Depart­ment of Tourism, Cul­ture and Recre­ation.

RNL Avalon Re­gional Di­rec­tor Tina Auchin­leck-Ryan of Tor­bay helped or­ga­nize the event.

“The sem­i­nar pro­vided re­cre- ation de­part­ments, as­so­ci­a­tions and prac­ti­tion­ers with the op­por­tu­nity to meet with other recre­ation part­ners from com­mu­ni­ties around the Avalon Penin­sula and to learn about recre­ation op­por­tu­ni­ties that are avail­able,” she ex­plained.”

Some of the pro­grams and ini­tia­tives dis­cussed in­cluded RNL’s Phys­i­cal Ac­tiv­ity Cam­paign - Small Steps... Big Re­sults, 2009 AGM and Con­fer­ence, Pro­fes­sional De­vel­op­ment Train­ing Bur­sary, Sogo Ac­tive, HIGH FIVE( r) and Cana­dian Tire Jump­Start.

“It was very in­for­ma­tive and over­flow­ing with good ques­tions and equally good an­swers,” said Auchin­leck-Ryan. “It was the start of a RNL sem­i­nar tour around the prov­ince and was a great start. The host group did an ex­cel­lent job in pre­par­ing for the sem­i­nar,” she said.
