Lynx Stadium will host a twist on record-breaking


Ottawa - There have been plenty of record-breaking nights at Lynx Stadium over the years, but the Ottawa Lynx are hoping this one has a twist-ed ending. The Lynx home game Thursday, August 17th against Buffalo will play host to an attempt at the Guinness World Record for the world's largest dancing of the twist in the Tropicana Twist-er World Record Attempt, presented by Tropicana Twister and Hot 89.9.


After the game, August 17th, fans are invited to go down onto the Lynx Stadium field to help dance Ottawa into the record books.


Tropicana will provide samples of Tropicana Twister for our thirsty dancers as well as other prizes throughout the game. Fred Astaire Dance Studio will have two dancers on-site to show everyone the correct way to do the twist and will also provide a $500 gift certificate for dance lessons for one lucky Lynx fan. Hot 89.9 will provide the music and get the attempt underway with Chubby Checker's "The Twist."


To make the record official, two prominent and respected members of the community have to witness this event. So CTV Ottawa personality Max Keeping and Ottawa city councillor Jacques Legendre will be on hand to make this world record attempt count.


A total of 1,691 staff and pupils from St Aidan's Church of England High School and St. John Fisher Catholic High School from Harrogate, North Yorkshire, UK, danced the twist for five minutes on April 30th, 2004. Gather your friends and family and let's make history at Lynx Stadium!
