NC2011: 2 YEARS TO GO AND BIENVENUE JOEMY
On 27 August, NC2011 celebrated 2 years to go before the Opening Ceremony of the XIV Pacific Games by unveiling "Joemy", the official mascot for the 2011 Pacific Games.
"Joemy" represents a type of BAT (la roussette) which is unique to New Caledonia, and was designed by a local New Caledonian school student Jean-Philippe Collobert.
"Joemy" beat out some strong competition in a vote participated in by more than 7,000 New Caledonians.
Bienvenue Joemy - welcome to our Games Family!
