The Veteran Paratroopers hosted the annual Erin Doyle Memorial Poker Run last week. We have been supporters since day one and again this year we made a donation to their silent auction. I missed the event due to work however I hear the event was a success. The bottom photo shows the package we put in. An SKS rifle, full case of ammo and of course some swag with our logo on it.
Erin Doyle was killed in the line of duty and you can learn more about the story in the news article linked here CLICK HERE
Hats off to the organizers for another job well done.
Today we did the draw for the $1000 cash that I may have commiserated about of late. When all the dust settled it was great because Lynda Moffat, the President and CEO of the St. Albert Chamber of Commerce was at the sale. Lynda did the draw for the cash and posed for cheesy photo ops with Claude, the winner. Really I was hoping to win because I could use the money
This past weekend, April 15-17, I was tending our booth at the Lifestyle Expo in St.Albert. It’s been a few years since I was there and it was great. I made some great connections and reconnected with some people from yesteryear. The staff and volunteers of the St.Albert Chamber did a great job.
I had a plethora of swag to give away, from balloons to a $1000 cash. Blue balloons are more popular than red balloons, the most popular of all the goodies is the lip balm and the least favorite was a $1000 cash. Sound idiotic I know, I’ll discuss it at the opening of the May 1st auction. Speaking of that sale, you will be able to enter the draw for the $1000 cash during the Friday viewing of that sale and we’ll draw for the money at 1:00pm on May 1st, during the auction.
Below is a copy of the ad that ran in the Gazette and was in the show program. Mike did such a great job I thought I’d show it off.
Last weeks Firearms Auction was a blast, I mean it really hit the mark <giggle giggle>. We gave away a brand new Henry lever action rifle and some swag to one attendee. Left to right is yours truly, our very grateful winner, Linda and Jim Baggaley from Bud Haynes & Co Auctioneers in Red Deer.

Did you notice this in the last auction?
Look closely at the archer.
What a maroon. He has the string wrapped around his neck. That’ll hurt.
