The Southwest Booster - - FRONT PAGE -

For the sec­ond straight year a group of semi trail­ers will roll out of Swift Cur­rent to join the 12th an­nual World’s Largest Truck Con­voy for Saskatchewan Spe­cial Olympics.

The 2018 con­voy will again fea­ture a Swift Cur­rent to Regina con­voy, as well as a Saska­toon to Regina group of ve­hi­cles.

Dur­ing last year’s de­but in Swift Cur­rent, a trio of semi trucks and a to­tal of six ve­hi­cles left the city in the morn­ing and met up with 20 trucks in Moose Jaw to par­tic­i­pate in this an­nual trip to Regina. The first decade of the ef­fort had ex­clu­sively been be­tween Saska­toon and Regina. A to­tal of ap­prox­i­mately 40 trucks con­verged on Regina’s Tur­vey Cen­tre last year.

Ac­tiv­i­ties at the Tur­vey Cen­tre in­clude a BBQ, bouncy cas­tle and en­ter­tain­ment, plus a truck pull event at 1 p.m.
