READ ALL ABOUT IT
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..
