The Drumheller Mail - - REAL ESTATE -

Spoke with Al Ger­dung the other day, who, as a teacher, thought he had the best pro­fes­sion in the world, then he re­tired and thought that was the bet­ter yet. Now that he has grand­chil­dren, that job tops them all! And who wouldn't want Al as their Grandpa. Reg Trepanier test­ing us the other day by ask­ing, "Who is the high­est paid em­ployee at Mi­crosoft?". When we told him we were stumped, he laughed and told us, "It's the Win­dows Washer!" We al­ways knew he was the wis­est man we know.

Ku­dos to Akokiniskway Golf's Al­bert Clark who is or­ga­niz­ing a golf tour­na­ment to aid the golf course in

Fort McMur­ray, that was dev­as­tated by the re­cent fire, caus­ing con­sid­er­able dam­age to what is/was one of the best cour­ses in Al­berta.

Al­bert told us he had spo­ken with the man­ager of the course and they lost their build­ings, carts, etc., and had not opened yet as McMur­ray starts to re­build af­ter the dis­as­ter. The tour­na­ment will be Fri­day, July 8, and along with the golf, there will be a meal and break­fast, plus live and silent auc­tions. It sounds like a good project and a great day. Give the course a call to reg­is­ter or to get more in­for­ma­tion.

Mon­day past, Cal­gary City Coun­cil gave a green light to their Sport and Tourism arm to in­ves­ti­gate the pos­si­bil­ity of mak­ing a bid to host the Winter Olympic Games in 2026.

Cal­gary did such a great job in 1988, that they thought it may be pos­si­ble to do it again, es­pe­cially give the great strides taken in the city over the past 20 years or so. The next two winter Olympic venues will be in Korea and

China, and the thought was that maybe Cal­gary would have a good shot at win­ning the bid.

If they were to win the bid, Drumheller could be in a good po­si­tion to ben­e­fit from the hype, as our town's fa­cil­i­ties could see vis­i­ta­tions from in­ter­na­tional hockey teams who need places to prac­tice prior to the start of the Games, and the BCF is an ideal set-up for their dry land train­ing. This type of event can do noth­ing but good for venues like ours, and coun­tries look for places to come to, even for a short while..
