MD C had submitted a bid to host the 2022 USA Canada Leadership forum to be hosted in Calgary, AB. Between August 29-September 01, 2018 there was a host site inspection team that visited Calgary. The Inspection team consisted of PID Doug Lozier, PID Lowell Bonds, and PID Gary Anderson and they were all accompanied by their wives.
We had about 45 Lions and LEOS greet our visitors on their arrival at the Calgary International Airport. LEOS came from Nanton LEOS, Lil Legendary LEOS (Foothills), and the Sundre LEOS.
Lions included PIP Judge Brian Stevenson and his wife Patricia, PID Bill Weber and his wife Joan, plus numerous Lions from both District C-1 and C-2.
There was a reception held Thursday night at the Lougheed Centre in Calgary, where our visitors were treated to a Calgary White Hat ceremony. PID Patti Hill and her husband Greg were able to participate on this evening.
Numerous hotels and several convention centres were visited during the week.
Their visit included a tour of our CLERC centre in Calgary
All in all, it was an inspiring visit with our Lions and LEOS doing an outstanding job of hosting this visit/ Site Inspection.
Our bid is one of three being considered. The other two are York, Pennsylvania and Long Beach, California.
The results as to who the 2022 USA Canada host city will be, will be announced at the USA Canada 2018 Forum being held September 19-21, 2018 in Columbus, OHIO. (YES IN ROUGHLY 2 WEEKS)
