25th Prairie Rose State Games

By URL Radio


Here’s a quiz.

What does 7-8-9-10-11 mean? It translates to July 8 – 10, 2011, the dates of the 25th anniversary – and final – Prairie Rose State Games. The Games come home to their birthplace, Bismarck-Mandan, for their final bow. The weekend will open with tradition and flair with the Opening Ceremony, Parade of Athletes and the lighting of the torch at the Bismarck Community Bowl on Friday evening, followed by a weekend of fast and furious family activity.

There are a total of 45 sports at the Games this year, including five new events. One new event that will draw some interest is a three-on-three Hoop It Up basketball tournament. Hoop It Up will have both youth and adult divisions, and is truly a “street ball” event, with all action taking place outdoors, using half courts. Other new sports for 2011 include adult co-ed kickball, off road duathlon, family fishing and remote control car racing.

The Games’ Entry booklet with all the details, days, times and location is available at Bismarck Parks and Recreation District, 400 E. Front Ave., or at the Games’ headquarters, right outside of I. Keating Furniture at Kirkwood Mall. Folks can also go online to www.prairierose.org to look over the list of events and of course, register.

Come and play in Bismarck-Mandan 7-8-9-10-11 for the 25th anniversary of the Prairie Rose State Games.
