After a hard decision, Virden & Area informed Sport Manitoba that they were no longer able to host the 2018 Power Smart Manitoba Winter Games due to lack of volunteers. The dedicated locals commit to countless events and projects in the community on a yearly basis and it came down to availability of time. Moving forward, Sport Manitoba has connected with a new community that will resume the planning of the Games and become the Host Society for the 2018 Power Smart Games.

Many many thanks to the best volunteers in the world – to the officials, coaches, athletes, host society and sponsors for a fantastic 2014 edition of the Power Smart Manitoba Winter Games.
As far as we know all teams made it home safe and sound through this afternoon’s snow squall.
Congratulations to all of the athletes for racing their hearts out the past 3 days. You are all so inspiring!
Our sport’s co-chairs Lorne Warkentine & Hank Unrau did a truly outstanding job of keeping so many parts moving smoothly and so many people happy. Chapeau, gentlemen.
And to the so many others who put in countless and selfless hours for the athletes, for sport and for the Games – we thank you!!
