Friday night pizza night! Went a different route to: #Swiss 2015 ⁦@ladamedesion⁩ Hurlevent Cornalin AOC Sion. A great spicy pairing with our Calabrese pizza! Bien réussi.

Friday night pizza night! Our Margherita and Chorizo pizzas paired very well with this ⁦@plwines⁩ ⁦@plwinescanada⁩ Layers (Shiraz, Mourvedre, Tempranillo, Grenache). We also tried a pure Cab Franc, and the PLW took the cake (or the pie).

New research from @AThompsonUOTT & @MilenaParent investigates how radical change impacts national-level sport organization effectiveness.

Friday night pizza night! The ⁦@50thparallelwin⁩ 2015 Unparalleled Pinot Noir had nice acidity and red fruit to pair with our non-traditional Margherita pizza (it had honey & goat cheese).

Excited to see this work officially published in IJEFM. In our new article, we step outside the sport participation lens to see how sport event volunteers are (or not) inspired to volunteer in the future. @ErikLLachance @AThompsonUOTT @MilenaParent
