Oktoberfest Saturday

A limited number of tickets are still available for Oktoberfest this weekend. The German Canadian club has moved its annual dinner and dance party to the Harvest Centre at Westerner Park. The event includes German beer and schnapps, pretzels and entertainment by Jana and Danny. This year’s event will be held on Saturday only because of slow ticket sales. To buy your tickets, please contact John at 403-343-2213.


Tourism discussed

Tourism is Alberta’s fourth largest industry and the best way to cater to visitors will be the focus of a Thursday speech. University of Calgary professor Simon Hudson will talk about what the modern traveller is looking for in terms of products and services in the speaker series presented by Red Deer Tourism. Hudson, who is a professor of tourism and marketing, will also suggest the best ways to communicate with potential tourists in his speech billed as Let’s Talk Tourism. Hudson has researched tourism marketing and published numerous articles and contributed to books. The event takes place from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Red Deer College’s The Four Centres, which is part of the new expansion. Tickets cost $10 for Red Deer Tourism members and $15 for non-members. For information call 403-346-0180.


Correction

All charges against a school bus driver related to an April 2008 tragedy have been stayed. A headline in Tuesday’s Advocate incorrectly said that Rimbey-area driver Ron Adams, 62, was fined in relation to the crash that killed Jennifer Noble, 17. He was not fined and all charges have been stayed by the Crown.
