Now that I have your attention
I'm talking about Wayne, not Paulina and not my house.
No, I'm talking about the "new" Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre.
The $64-million renovation is nearing completion. The new features in the complex include a 4-pad arena a 25-metre pool and hydro-therapy pool to complement the 65-metre pool. The facility also features a fitness studio, fully-equipped weight room, dry land training room, indoor track, gymnasium, football field, and more.
Inspiring Greatness is a free event, taking place this Sunday, September 29 from noon to 6 p.m. Made possible by presenting sponsorship from the OLG Casino Brantford, Inspiring Greatness will showcase the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre with entertainment, free activities and tours for people of all ages.
This Grand Opening Passport lists nine different stops you can make to see different components of the complex.
Gretzky will be a part of the opening ceremony scheduled for 3 p.m., which will include the unveiling of the Gretzky Project statue of him with the Stanley Cup facing life-sized statues of a younger self with his parents, Walter and Phyllis
Also at 4:00 PM, Multi Juno award singer Jully Black performs (main stage)
It has also been confirmed that Wayne will be in attendance (ergo, in the house). It has also been confirmed that I have been selected to be a volunteer at this event. I'll find out Thursday what I'll be doing and get a sense of what will be going on.
Hopefully I can get some pictures (maybe Paulina will be there) and who knows what else to share here on my blog.
