The State University of NY at Buffalo, as well as other colleges
in western NY, and some public sites will be hosting the WORLD
University games. Steve Meyers mentioned that he had never heard
anything about the games, until he saw the signs on the way past
the campus on his way to Niagara Falls. Well, this is the first
time the WORLD Universtiy games have been in the USA, and were
last held in Shefield England. There are simular events to the
Summer Olymics or PanAm games etc. The major difference is that
all competetors some from Universities throughout the world.
The BOY scout councils in Wester NY are helping to HOST the
games and part of the Camp_o_rall program two weeks ago, was
to stage some competetions based on events in the World Games.
Scouts and leaders will fill in all kinds of roles to include
set up and take down of dorm faciltities, staffing information
centers, VIP guides, runners etc. AND, Discount tickets are
available through the council service center.
If anyone has questions about the games, where to get tickets
or still want to sign up to help, please send me a direct e-mail
and I'll get you in touch with the right people.
