The Pas Golden Age Group is looking at putting in a bid to have The Pas host the 2019 Alcoa Manitoba 55 Plus Games. A bid for the games must be put in before the end of March and the host community is expected to be announced in April.
In preparation for the bid an organizational meeting will be held on February 28th at 324 Ross Avenue to select a Chair, A Vice Chair, A Treasurer, and a secretary. They will be checking out the communities support and what events the town can run and where they can be held.
Up to 15 hundred people could be participating in the games which would bring visitors to The Pas and help to strengthen the economy.
