Fort Langley’s Bedford Channel will be the scene of the rowing and paddling component of the 2010 BC Games this weekend. Time trials are being held this morning with the races for medals the rest of the weekend.
When the Township’s bid for the games was announced as successful in 2005, the inclusion of rowing and paddling competitions was very much in doubt. However, the Bedford Channel subsequently was discovered for its ideal competitive attributes as a venue for all rowing and paddling sports.
The re-inclusion of these sports in 2010 makes the Summer Games in Langley extra special. Take in the excitement on the Channel this weekend!
