Thank You, Calgary for Your Participation in All Sport One Day
For the most part, Calgary’s unpredictable weather cooperated, with warm sunny skies for the majority of the event. A few showers late in the afternoon cut short some of the final activities at some of the outdoor facilities, but a great time was still had by all.
