Follow your Team Ottawa athletes at the Games

For 2 weeks this July follow the athletes of Team Ottawa as they participate in the 19th Maccabiah Games in Israel. 

Athletes, parents and supporters will be posting personal stories, photos and results direct from the 19th Maccabiah Games in Israel this summer.

Here are your blogging options:
While in Israel the data and roaming charges will most likely be quite expensive when using a smartphone from Canada. 

For this reason, please either use free wifi access whenever possible for uploading blog articles and photos, or rent a phone through the Maccabi Canada provider Israel Phones.  Maccabi Canada has secured great rates for phones in Israel for athletes and their families:

A cell phone with unlimited calls in Israel and North America for $4.99/day and $6.99 with Data.  Full pricing and information is available in a downloadable PDF document.

Contact Larry Lavitt if you need access to contribute to this blog.
