British Columbia's athletes, coaches, official and some of their families have all travelled to Prince George this week, the start of the 2022 BC Summer Games which kicked off with a Grand Opening on Thursday evening.
Thirty Prince Rupert athletes boarded the bus eastbound on Wednesday, joining 173 athletes from across the Northwest, along with 28 coaches set to take part in the showcase event for the summer.
An event for some that one day could lead to more success on the national and international stage.
