Summer weather has been phenominal this summer season. Events have had great turnouts. But, do not fret there is still plenty of tournaments and competitions that will be happening very soon. RICH YOUR SPORTSCASTER back from volunteering for the Ironman and ready to let everyone know about the exciting events that will be happening these next few weeks.
But first I want to congratulate all the Ironman/Ironwoman who participated in this years Ironman race. You are a true Ironman and deserve the credit for enduring such a long race. CONGRATULATIONS! SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!!!
Okay, back to the events!! All you active athletes who like a little rough and tough in your sports. Then the 38TH ANNUAL CAN-AM RUGBY TOURNAMENT is right up your alley. This coming weekend from July 29th through July 31st, 2011 teams from all over the US will be descending into Saranac Lake and Lake Placid for this head and body smashing event. The men and ladies will be bumping, tackling and running for the goal to ensure their teams victory. (I am sure to see many banged up knees, arms, and heads,,hopefully not mine…lol!) So, if this is your cup of tea then head down to Saranac Lake this weekend for all the action.
For all of you skater enthusiasts who like to spin, jump and glide across the ice, has Lake Placid have a great event for you. I am talking about the LAKE PLACID ICE DANCING CHAMPIONSHIPS that will also be taking place this coming week from July 27th through July 30th. Ice skating couples will be descending on the area in hopes for GOLD! (If they were to invite me on the ice, I would spin myself right through the ice..hehe). So, all of you who love figure skating this is a competition not to miss.
Oh! Do not want to forget our Lacrosse Players. The 2011 LAKE PLACID SUMMIT LACROSSE TOURNAMENT will be held in a few weeks from August 3rd through the 7th. The children even get in on the action at the beginning of the week from August 1st through the 3rd. All over Lake Placid in many fields provided down near the Horseshow grounds, teams will be racing back and forth with their netted sticks and trying to score goals for their team. (Watch out, flying ball coming at your head..lol) It is a great tournament!! Lake Placid is proud to host these Lacrosse teams year after year.
So, beat the heat these next few weeks and head over to Lake Placid because there is an enormous array of events in store for the near future. Okay, time to strap on my miracle running shoes. So many places to be and little time to be there. Wish me luck!!! Goodbye everyone!
