Celebrating Our 40th:
UWinnipeg Sponsored Moose Game

By Annette Elvers

In celebration of UWinnipeg's 40th Anniversary in 2007, The University of Winnipeg sponsored the January 17 Moose Game--the Manitoba Moose VS. San Antonio Rampage.

UWinnipeg alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends joined together to cheer on the Moose and to celebrate the University's proud history. A great evening was made even better with a win for the Moose, who won their season-high sixth straight game, beating the San Antonio Rampage 4-1.

A selection of photos from the evening's activities are provided below.
