Grade 5 stu­dents at Green­tree School and mem­bers of Drumheller’s Emer­gency Ser­vices are get­ting ready to dodge, duck, dip, dive and …dodge.

Come Thurs­day, April 28, the Grade 5s will be tak­ing on the RCMP, mem­bers of Fire De­part­ment, EMS, and com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle en­force­ment in a no holds barred dodge­ball match. It is a lot of fun and also a great fundraiser. Eric, left, and Jack Doucette are go­ing head to head in the 911 Dodge­ball match to raise funds for the Grade 5 and 6 Green­tree School classes yearend school trip.

“Ev­ery year the kids go on an end of year class trip,” ex­plains Con­sta­ble Eric Doucette. “We do it as fundraiser.”

This year the Grade 5 class is go­ing to the In­gle­wood Bird Sanc­tu­ary and the Grade 6 class is go­ing to Telus Spark.

The game is be­tween 1:15 and 3:15 p.m., and stu­dents wish­ing to come watch can make a do­na­tion. Doucette adds the mem­bers of the 911 Dodge­ball team that par­tic­i­pate, typ­i­cally also do­nate to off­set the costs of the trip. Par­ents and well-wish­ers are wel­come to come and sup­port the cause.
