Devon Games to Inspire 2012

At the meeting in October we chose the venue as Okehampton so yesterday we had our first meeting there.The criticism from earlier events was that we were too slow in deciding on the sports and then getting the rules for them so that people could organise trials.

So now we are ahead and have chosen 18 sports including a Triathlon for the first time and quite a large Street Sports offer-scooters, skateboards and BMX for years 7-11. That is looking like it could be a mini Games! We are aiming to have the largest event ever.

As well as the sports we want to have dance displays, music, sports for people to try, mascots and anything else we can organise between now and next June. Our Silver Band will have to meet a few challenges like can they play a Lady Gaga hit and I am not sure when we fit in singing the National Anthem. A colleague has found the words online...
