Winnipeg Free Press: A day in the life of a buzzing Bisons sports campus
The first sign of activity on the University of Manitoba campus comes outside of the Max Bell Centre a little after 6 a.m. on Saturday.
The sun won’t rise for another hour, but one of the 75 staff members who will work on this day unlocks the door and lights up the Wayne Fleming Arena, clearing the way for a recreational group skate at 6:30 a.m.
It’s the first in a laundry list of activities and events that takes place on the Fort Garry campus each weekend. Everything from community pickleball to wall climbing, to badminton, to dance class will run before the day ends.
