Golf auction features travel prizes



This year the Dinosaur Trail Golf and Country Club wants to send its supporters packing,  with a number of travelling possibilities at its annual dinner and auction.

The event is coming up on April 24 at Dinosaur Downs.

“There’s been a bit of a buzz because of the new trip giveaway. It’s a new theme for us,” said Dinosaur Trail Golf Club manager Scott Westman.

Just by buying a ticket to this year’s auction, patrons have a chance to win a trip to Las Vegas. There are also a couple auction items that will give the winner a chance to see a bit of the world.

On the auction block is a Shuswap house boating adventure for 10. There is also a draw for a trip for two to New York, San Francisco or San Diego, covering hotel and airfare.

This is along with the dozens of other items generously donated by local supporters of the club.

This year’s event is in support of the Tournament Facility to compliment the course. Westman says they are making good progress towards the creation of the facility.

The annual event begins at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 24 with cocktails, followed by  dinner at 6 p.m. patron’s dinner tickets must be entered in draw in order to be eligible for the trip to Vegas.

More information or tickets are available by calling 403-823-5634 or e-mailing Tickets can also be purchased at the clubhouse, or from any board member.

There are still spots available for young Drumheller hoopsters to get on some off-season action.

The next season of Badlands Basketball Spring League begins April 29. The annual league now incorporates boys and girls from Grades 6 to 11. 

Badlands Basketball has grown in its short history. In its first season, they had 30 players signed up. Last season there were 100 players out to gain experience in the off-season. This has helped the players and the school programs excel. Last year the DCHS Senior boys won silver at provincials and this year had another strong team. So far, registration is strong.

“We have about 90 kids,” said Chad Pidhaichuk who is organizing the league, adding there are still a number of spots available to play.

There is a co-ed junior division for Grades 5 and 6 as well as senior divisions for boys and girls in Grades 7-11.

This it the first year that the boys division hasn’t filled up, I still have about 15 spots open,” said Pidhaichuk.

He says there are still a few spots in the senior girls division

The teams play on Tuesday and Thursday nights through to June 7 when there will be playoffs.

There is also a boys travel U17 team and there are three more spots available. The team will play in a couple tournaments.
