Winter Games Group Winding Down
Prince George, B.C.- The Canada Winter Games Society remains in the wind up stage, and CEO Stu Ballantyne says it will likely be June before the final statements on the financials for the Games will be ready.
“We’ve got bills we are paying, and each week it gets harder and harder (to do all the work) as we’re down to five staff” at the peak of the Games, there were 6,000 people, mostly volunteers, working on the event.
Ballantyne says while the final financial tally is not yet complete “the trends are there and we are very happy with where are.” He says there won’t be any financial surprises for the City “There were never going to be any surprises, we are looking at good news.”
As for Ballantyne, his contract will expire at the end of September, but as yet, he hasn’t made a decision on what his next step will be “We’ve got irons in the fire, and we’ve got to decide. We absolutely love what we’re doing. I’ve got some time to think about it, I’ve got a few extra months, so we’ll have to wait and see.”
