A Letter from Robin Mitchell, President and C.O.O. of Talisman Centre

Happy 25th Anniversary!!!!

On behalf of all the staff here, I would like to thank everyone that has made Talisman Centre a part of their lives over the past 25 years and hope that we have the opportunity to play a role in the lives of many more individuals over the next 25 years.

We are all thrilled that Talisman Centre is celebrating 25 years of service to Calgarians, inspiring our community through sport and wellness. Countless Calgarians and Canadian athletes have passed through our doors and surprised themselves with what they could accomplish. We are privileged to host Blythe Hartley, Olympic diver, Erica Morningstar, Olympic swimmer, Duff Gibson, Olympic skeleton sledder, and the award winning Canadian Men's Water Polo Team.

The new year marks a major milestone for the City of Calgary, as four of its recreation facilities turn 25: Village Square, Southland and Family Leisure Centres and, of course, Talisman Centre. Some of our guests may not realize it, but Talisman Centre is actually owned by the City of Calgary. The naming rights belong to Talisman Energy, and we are managed and governed by the Lindsay Park Sports Society. Together these three facilities see over four million visitors every year and provide the building blocks for young and old alike to pursue their dreams, train, socialize, and ensure a healthy future.

Becoming a member of Talisman Centre in our anniversary year will have even more advantages than ever before. We value and appreciate our members and we're planning some fantastic rewards and incentives for members in the new year. In 25 years, Talisman Centre has only gotten better, and we plan to continue that tradition of constantly improving the experience for our customers. We have the best drop-in fitness programs in Calgary, which are included with your membership. We still offer Calgary's only drop-in yoga class, the ever-popular Ripped fitness program, a new batch of leading-edge cycling equipment for our Power Cycle class, and our new BTS Group Groove and Group Power fitness programs. Remember that up-to-date information can always be found right here on our newly enhanced website: www.talismancentre.com.

Come discover what you can do in 2008. Visit Talisman Centre today!
