The City of Medicine Hat will find out soon if it will be hosting another major event.

A bid has been put forth to host the 2022 Special Olympics Canada Summer Games.

Mayor Ted Clugston says delegates will be in Medicine Hat next week touring facilities to see if they meet the national standard.

Clugston says, “We are meeting with them next Monday (Sept. 9) night for lunch and dinner.  The announcement will happen right away actually, September 22 actually, I was surprised it was that quick.  This really is the biggie, The Canada-wide Special Olympics.”

Delegates are touring other prospective hosts next week as well, with an official announcement expected in about 2 weeks.
