BSG 2023 Chair remarks
The Ballantrae Summer Games are back. Time to put our community back on the map. Our Summer Games have been one of the largest and most recognized community events in York Region since 2007, by every level of government and local businesses.
We are rebuilding the games from the ground level up. We will be featuring new ideas, new activities and lots of new participants.
Come out and meet your neighbours, make new friends, enjoy our live daily entertainment , dancing, social and competitive events, refreshments and a wide variety of food. Find out what a real community is all about.
We expect to see a lot of new faces and volunteers. It is the volunteers who make the Games the success that they are.
The Games planning process is underway. An Events list will be posted well in advance of Registration Day. Opening Day will feature Official Ceremonies and a Family Day full of activities, food and refreshments. You are encouraged to invite your children and grand children to share in the celebration of our community.
Further information and updates are available on the HOTG website, your individual Condo Board Captains, Condo and Sport Captains.
PARTICIPATION is always the theme of our Games, as points are awarded to the Condo with the most registrations for the games.
Sunday, August 27th , is dedicated to awards presentations and celebrating your place in history as the 2023 Summer Games Champions.
