Competition thrives through Bay’s generations

Running, hopping, tossing, swimming and scavenging – they did it all and more this weekend in Norway Bay, as activities in the area continued with the return of annual tests of fitness and wit.
Organized by the Norway Bay Municipal Association (NBMA), the community had the chance to participate in all sorts of fun, promoting both healthy competition and lifestyles, across the bay.
“One of the things about [Norway Bay] is it’s all about tradition,” said Steph Brousseau, coordinator for many weekend events with the NBMA.
Events kicked off Saturday morning with the long distance run at 9 a.m., starting at Centennial Park. Participation was down this year, but Brousseau said that later events saw many more younger children take part – encouraging for organizers to keep the activities going as those little ones grow older.
