Karen Percy Named Banff's Torchbearer

As written about in an earlier Blog Post, the Olympic Torch will be coming through Banff on January 20, 2010. It has just been announced that Karen Percy will be the community torchbearer to light the celebration cauldron for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Torch Relay.

Karen was one of the top women's alpine competitors in the world and was a double medalist at the 1988 Olympic Games in Calgary Alberta. Percy was raised in Banff and has been inducted into the Banff Sports Hall of Fame

The celebration starts at 6pm and about halfway through the program, Karen Percy will light the 1.3 metre high celebration cauldron (similar to what is done in the Opening Ceremony at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games). Also featured is the Canadian Tenors and Bomba, a Canadian, Latin-Jazz group.

Rooms are selling fast...so book your Banff Aspen Lodge getaway now to be apart of this historic event ~
