Delia ral­lies for Small Town Satur­day Night

The Drumheller Mail - - FRONT PAGE - Pa­trick Ko­lafa

Delia may be a small town, but it is a big fan of Gordon Bam­ford, and a wish to see him come play.

On be­half of the Delia Ag So­ci­ety, Ni­cole De­va­le­ri­ola has nom­i­nated the com­mu­nity for the Small Town Satur­day Night con­test and is reach­ing out to fans to sup­port its bid.

The Small Town Satur­day Night con­test is pre­sented by the Big Valley Jam­boree. To show its ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties through­out Al­berta that sup­ports the Jam­boree, it awards a com­mu­nity un­der 20,000 with a chance for a con­cert.

“If your town wins, Gord Bam­ford comes,” ex­plains Devele­ri­ola. “There are 31 towns en­tered and we are go­ing to try. Our com­mu­nity sure does need the eco­nomic boost and our small town could use some­thing good go-

ing our way.”

“I’m just a mem­ber of the Delia com­mu­nity and I also re­ally love Gord Bam­ford, so there are two good things to come of it.”

Right now, there are more than 30 in the run­ning and fan vot­ing is open un­til Fe­bru­ary 14. This win­nows the list down to 10 fi­nal­ists.

“When they se­lect the top 10, they will send a cam­era crew to the com­mu­nity and will take a video of our town, and then those 10 videos go on­line to be voted on for two weeks,” she ex­plains. The win­ner will get the con­cert in April.

To get Delia to the fi­nal she is hop­ing for sup­port from the sur­round­ing com­mu­nity.

“Our town only has 186 peo­ple, but it does have a big sur­round­ing area so we are hop­ing that Drumheller and Mor­rin will help us and try to rally,” she said.

To vote, go to www.big­val­ley­jam­boree.com/stsn/vote. You are able to vote once every day un­til the vot­ing round closes.
