Don't miss RBC Sports Day in Canada
Saturday, November 29, 2014

RBC Sports Day in Canada celebrations are coming to the Rath Eastlink Community Centre on Nov. 29, featuring discounted fitness opportunities, a “selfie” contest, prizes, and information about all of the sporting activities available in Colchester County. Not to mention, discounted admission to watch the Truro Junior A Bearcats take on Dieppe in hockey at 7 p.m.

A committee of local and provincial sport, recreation and facility representatives have been meeting to come up with some innovative and fun ways to celebrate Sports Day and to share the love of sport. The Truro Bearcats also came on board.

Fans at the game will have an opportunity to win prizes by taking imaginative and dynamic solo or group selfies, tweeting #SportsDayinColchester and answering the question, “What does sport mean to me?” There are three individual prize packages to win, valued at $150, $75 and $30 respectively, and courtesy of the RECC, the Cougar Dome and the Truro Junior A Bearcats.

Also, $1 will be taken off all adult, senior and student ticket prices for the game.

Nov. 29 is a culmination of several days of activities being hosted at the RECC.

For example, the RECC has come up with a “Try it for 5” event which features $5 day passes to the Fitness Centre from Nov. 26 to 28. Then, Nov. 28 is Jersey Day. Staff and members who wear jerseys for their favourite sports clubs or teams will be able to skate for free from 12 noon to 5 p.m.

Nov. 29 is also Passport to Fitness Day at the RECC. For $15, families can enjoy open swims, an open climb, children’s yoga, children’s Zumba from 1 to 5 p.m. For details about times and for more information, be sure and check out the RECC website. www.ratheastlinkcc.ca.

Each family will receive a passport that can be stamped in each department. If you get all of your stamps, you are entered to win a $100 RECC gift card. Anyone who shows a passport to the staff at the canteen during the hockey game that night will receive $1 off popcorn.

Finally, representatives of the Cougar Dome, RECC and recreation departments for Truro, Colchester, Bible Hill and Stewiacke will be on hand to talk about their upcoming and ongoing events and programs. Information tables will be set up on the concourse during the game.
