Let the games begin

Larry is going for gold once again and following his dream to the alpine skiing podium in February in Grand Prairie. We will be going to cheer him on for the Special Olympic Alberta Winter Games. It will be a great weekend and hope as many people will come to join us, either in body or in spirit as possible. Please follow along though Larry's blog that I will update often. 

These provincial games are the first step in the path that could lead to the Canadian games on the East coast of Canada next year and quite possibly Austria in 2017. Larry could not have made it to Korea without all of the love and support of so many amazing people so thank you in advance to everyone who was there for him and our family for the first adventure. Here we go again ... LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!

  1. Hey Larry, Great picture. You look ready for the big event. We wish you the best of luck and wanted you to know we will be cheering for you all the way from Parry Sound, Ontario. Woot - go Greens go!!!! Love Rick, Crystal, Holden, John and way too many pets.

  2. The countdown is on, Big Guy! I want to wish you and all of the Edmonton teammates a wonderful two days of racing. I wish I could be there in person, but will have to cheer you on from across the ocean. I will be watching for the results as they come in.

    Good luck and ski fast!
