Gameswear Fridays to be Launched with the City & County of Grande Prairie

The 2010 Arctic Winter Games will launch the Gameswear Fridays program next week, with Funding Partners the City of Grande Prairie and County of Grande Prairie being the first to confirm their support.

Members of the Games Host Society will be joined by City Aldermen and County Councilors for the announcement, happening Monday, June 15th, 9:00am at the County office. Elected officials will be the first to don their Gameswear in support of the program, but Director of Administration for the Games, Mike Reid says that’s just the beginning.

“As a supporter of our Gameswear Friday program our Funding Partners, and ALL Games sponsors, are eligible to receive a discount on bulk Gameswear purchases. These savings can be passed along to their staff, encouraging them to show their support for the Games by proudly wearing their Gameswear at work every Friday between now and the Games”.

Reid says the City and County are both shining examples of how Games pride can be encouraged in a work-place. But, he says community support for the Games reaches well beyond our municipal governments to businesses of all sizes.

“The Gameswear Friday campaign is a great way for the public to easily identify those businesses that have already made a commitment to supporting this unique sporting and cultural event. And if it encourages others to get involved, that’s even better” he says.

Mayor Dwight Logan was the first to purchase his 2010 Arctic Winter Games vest, which will be officially presented to him, along with the rest of City and County elected officials at their respective council meetings Monday.

Gameswear Fridays will also ensure that new products and styles of Gameswear are being seen out in the community as they’re made available. Reid says new stock is coming in all the time. To see the latest, visit the 2010 Arctic Winter Games Store in Ernie’s Sports Plaza or visit the Online Store at www.awg2010.org.
