RCMP Do-Rights downed by students at food bank fundraiser


    Youth and the law clashed on Thursday afternoon in the gymnasium of Drumheller Composite High School in a floor hockey fundraiser for the Salvation Army Food Bank.

    Members of the Drumheller RCMP detachment took on six students of the school in a 44 minute hockey game.
    Teams were tied with about a minute and a half left, however the students went on to win 16-13.
    Corporal Black said they had lots of fun and are looking forward to more opprotunities of interacting with the students in the future.
    The “RCMP Do-Rights” consisted of officers Mike Black, Andrew Grainger, Jennifer Ruban, Jeremiah Jones, Mike Maxwell, Bryan Machuk, and team ringer Kelly Tompkins.
    “It’s different for the kids to be seeing them out of uniform,” said instructor Jeff Messom, who had his money on the young guys.
    The RCMP members brought $100 to be donated to the food bank, and classes at the school each put $20 in to watch the game.
    Jared Potter, Matt Kendall, Dave Pedersen, Shayne Gwinner, Sean Davies and Mitchell Toffan represented DCHS.
