It was an exciting day for the folks at Pacific Sport Northern BC. They have set a date for the 2nd annual ‘Fan the Flame Awards Banquet & Gala’, and they have a keynote speaker who will surely be a familiar face to all. Scott Russell, of CBC’s Olympic Coverage, will be in the city in February for the big day. The ‘Fan the Flame Awards Banquet and Gala’ will celebrate athletic achievement in the north for 2016. The Rising Star Awards recognize exceptional athletic achievement for athletes, while the 2015 Canada Winter Games Legacy Sport Difference Maker Awards, created last year, honour coaches, officials, and volunteers.
