Syncrude ‘Fun in the Sun’ event proves hugely successful
(Fort McMurray, AB, January 28, 2012) – Hundreds of community members and families beat the winter blahs at the Syncrude ‘Fun in the Sun’ Pool Party on Saturday afternoon at Syncrude Aquatic Centre at MacDonald Island Park.
The event, which was fully supported and hosted by Syncrude Canada, included a collection of aquatics-based games, contests, treasure hunts and races on the Country 93.3 FM Yellow Slide, Rock 97.9 FM Rock Slide and the Mix 103.7 FM Spray Park, prize giveaways, contests and complimentary food and beverage.
A highlight of the day was the installation of the ever-popular Aflex Multi-Challenge, a 16x3 metre inflatable originally used at the 2000 Olympic Summer Games in Sydney, Australia.
“What an exciting day at Syncrude Aquatic Centre,” said Tim Reid, Chief Operating Officer at MacDonald Island Park. “This is exactly the type of family-oriented event we had envisioned when we opened Syncrude Aquatic Centre and we thank the entire Syncrude team for its ongoing support in making ‘Fun in the Sun’ – and this facility – the recreational gem of the Island.”
