Ball hockey

Teams are lined up now for the second annual Heartland Cup ball hockey tournament, to be held at Wold Class Contracting in Belich Park, west of Hwy 2 and south of Hwy 11. Motivated by his father’s near miss with a heart attack, business owner Jordan Hindbo has organized the tournament as a fundraiser for the Heart & Stroke Foundation. The first teams hit the rink this evening, with action continuing throughout Saturday and Sunday. Spectators are welcome and there will be concessions on the site. Call Michelle Sluchinski for directions, 403-342-4724.

Night vision

They can see in the dark. Now, you can, too. On the evening of Friday, Sept. 10, the Waskasoo Park Interpretive Program will employ infrared technology to look for animals hiding in the dark at Gaetz Lake Sanctuary. Participants can choose one of two time frames: 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. or midnight to 2 a.m. This is an adults-only program with just six spaces available per time frame, so anyone interested in taking part will need to book quickly. Fees are $15 plus GST for members of the Waskasoo Environmental Education Society or $17 plus GST for non-members. Please call 403-346-2010 to learn more or to register.

River tours

A break in the weather could mean two more rafting trips with the Waskasoo Park interpreters this month. The interpretive program is preparing tours from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 11 and again on Sept. 18, providing the weather co-operates. The tour is suitable for all ages, but children must be no smaller than 18 kg. Participants must register at least 24 hours in advance. Tours are $35 plus GST per person for members of the Waskasoo Environmental Education Society or $40 for non-members. Call 403-346-2010.
