Hivernades was a great success
On February 15th, more than 600 people participated in the 2018 edition of the Hivernades held at CFB Bagotville. More than 850 came for tourtiere ( meat pie) dinner later on in the day, in hangar 3. PSP Recreation Manager Claire Duschènes was very happy with the level of participation. Ms. Deschênes gives all the credit for this large success to the organizing committee who went above and beyond to prepare for this event. The Hivernades activities began early in the week with the snow sculpture competition, which allowed the various units to showcase their talent and set the scene for Thursday's whole day of activities. After the friendly competitions held in the morning, the tourtiere dinner was held in the hanger, afterwards the banners were presented, the beard and ponytail competition was held and various prizes were won by several generous partners such as: CANEX, SISIP, The Personal, the Caisse Desjardins des militaires, Ok Pneu, Sport Cycle Expert and Hyundai of the Kingdom. During the dinner, LCol Christian Corneau, General Manager of the Bagotville International Air Show ( SAIB) spoke to remind the audience that the air show's primary goal is to raise funds to support the wellbeing of members of the Bagotville military community.
