The tickets are affordable and you are supporting a great cause. The Town of Bruderheim is raising money to buy a new ice making machine for the arena as the old one is on it's last legs. An ice maker generally costs close to $500,000 and they still have a ways to go. With your support,  you will help keep ice sports and events alive in this fantastic little town with a big heart.

Go here to find out more about pricing and get your tickets to this event.

Adoptable Animal of the Week

Brutus 2


MEET BRUTUS!

Brutus was born Oct 2008 with shallow hip sockets and had surgery at 2 years old to help with his condition.
He is good with kids and other dogs but use caution with young dogs and kids because he will play until
he hurts.  Also, a home with limited stairs is helpful for this beautiful boy.

Brutus is a healthy, vaccinated and neutered mixed breed, looking for his furever home!

If you are interested in adopting Brutus, click here to start the adoption process.

Lets find him a home!

Don't move a Mussel (into Alberta)

2015 05 25 aquatic  invasive  species


This weekend, my dad and I went fishing for the first time this year. My dad just purchased a brand-new fishing boat. I was excited to go test out his new boat, and to catch some fish of course. After much deliberation, we decided to go to a Long Lake.

Before we could get on the water, our boat had to be checked for Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS). AIS are non-native animals or plants that have been brought to Alberta's waterways from other provinces. Species such as quagga mussels and zebra mussels can spread quickly and can live out of water for up to 30 days. Once introduced to a waterbody, they are virtually impossible to get rid of and they can cause millions of dollars of damage to water-operated infrastructure and harm aquatic ecosystems.The Eurasian water milfoil is an example of an invasive plant species. It can crowd out native aquatic plants, damage ecosystems. The Eurasian water milfoil can also hinder recreational activities by growing in mats.

Albertans play an important role in protecting the province's waterways from aquatic invasives. Everyone who enjoys Alberta's lakes and rivers has to be proactive about keeping our aquatic ecosystems safe.


If you are bringing a boat and equipment into Alberta from another province or state, be sure to:

  1. Clean and inspect watercraft, trailer and gear.

  2. On land before leaving the waterbody, be sure to drain all water from bait buckets, ballasts, bilges, coolers, internal compartments, livewells, transom motors.

  3. Rinse, scrub or pressure wash your boat away from storm drains, ditches or waterways.

  4. At home, soak your gear in a 2% bleach solution for one minute. (20 mL of bleach per litre of water)

  5. Never release live bait into a waterbody.

  6. Dry the watercraft and gear completely between trips and allow the wet areas of your boat to air dry.

  7. Leaves compartments open and sponge out standing water.

For paddle boats, drain by inverting the watercraft, opening compartments and removing seats if necessary.

GALLERY: Had a ball at the Andy Polanski Classic

2015 05 23 andypolanskisignIt was another fantastic weekend and so much fun to be apart of the Andy Polanski Classic. One step closer to the ultimate goal.


Oh, what a weekend!

Friday May 22nd and Saturday May 23rd saw swarms of people flock to the DOW Ball Diamonds in Fort Saskatchewan for the 2015 Andy Polanski Classic which featured a slow pitch soft ball tournament at it's heart and fantastic entertainment and more for the entire family.

The round robin tournament kicked off on Friday followed by some incredible music from Jordan Norman and Cronenberg (who's lead singer/guitarist is Ryan Connop from Mix 107). Early Saturday morning the ball tournament re-started and took a short break to give way for the opening ceremonies featuring the Clan McNaughton Pipers and hosted by Kyle and Colin Polanski. Mayor of Fort Saskatchewan, Gale Katchur would also say a few kind words before giving way to more entertainment from Insert Name Here and Gong Show (two fantastic young bands representing Glen Nielsen's Music Instruction).

Lots of fantastic food could be found onsite from The Funky Mango Food truck, Panago Pizza and many more. They even sold tickets for the Andy Polanski Home Plate Special featuring homemade perogies, kielbasa, and coleslaw. Once the appetite had settled people congregated in front of the main stage and were treated to the incredible sound of one of Fort Sasks newest rocks bands...The Mankind. They had a following of fans who came out to hear them and get a photo op.

The field was also filled with a mini carnival filled with games and prizes for the kids, two large bouncy castles and a silent auction tent packed to the brim with incredible items donated by individuals and business from all around the area.
You could find things like signed sporting merchandise, grooming products, gardening tools and items, and so much more. Some of the large items for show were held aside for the incredible live auction which took place. There was things like a meet and great with Jordan Eberle plus a signed jersey, a signed Connor McDavid Errie Otters jersey, a garden package featuring a patio set, large home BBQ, small portable grill, a flower basket and portable cooler/FM Radio. There was a entertainment package that had a 32 inch HDTV, a reclining leather chair, Samsung 3D BluRay player with sound system and a Shaw PVR. Two floor tickets to see AC/DC in concert (which fetched the evenings highest total at nearly $2200). A  steak and lobster dinner for 10 and even a chance to co-host the Mix 107 Morning Show were also items up for grabs. Just about every bid went well over a $1000 each and it was estimated to raise nearly $30,000 for the cause.

Once the excitment ended from the aution and wallets were now emptied people mingled and danced the night away with phenomenal original and cover tunes from The Whiskey Boyz. They played a wide variety of tunes and even had some helping hands join them on stage including a mind blowing performance on drums by little 7 year old Matthew Polanski. Kid sure knows how to carry a beat and looks the part too.

Overall it was a day that exceeded so many expectations and should the Andy Polanski Charitable Foundation chose to do this again next summer, I highly recommend you take it in. If you wish to donate but haven't had the chance you can still do
so by going to www.apcf.ca

Don't forget about the Andy Polanski Charity Ball Hockey Tournament on June 19th from the Sportsplex in Fort Sask. More info about that event can also be found the the APCF website listed above.

Big thanks to the Polanski Family for their invite to the event. I am so glad I could participate and help get the word out.

Check out this massive gallery I shot from Friday and Saturday. Enjoy!
