We have two great giveaways every morning this week. If you haven’t heard, the Home Hardware Canada Cup is coming to Revolution Place next week and we have a load of tickets to various draws. So, Kevin and I are playing a little phone curling for the tickets. We will take 1 caller, and then a 2nd. The first caller must hang up and then call back within 4 callers to claim the prize back, if not, then it goes to caller 2. So far, the first guy is 1-1 this week.
The second prize is beating the box office on a pair of tickets to see Disturbed and Saint Asonia with Age of Days live at the EnCana Events Centre February 19th. That’s a Friday night, and a show a lot of people have been waiting some time to see. For those tickets, you’ll have know the difference between a Marilyn Monroe quote, or Rock n Roll lyrics. Surprisingly, not as easy as it sounds.
This number could win you sick prizes 780 539 9797 and so could our ROCKSTAR VIP club (top right).
Live at the EnCana Events Centre, Friday February 19th, the titans are back: DISTURBED
Disturbed will be on tour with a limited amount of Canadian dates in 2016, and we want you to be there for the tour support of their 6th studio album Immortalized.
Disturbed will be joined by Saint Asonia and Age of Days
We are beating the box office all week on the morning show with Kevin and Cliff

The QE2 Hospital Foundation rebranded to the Grande Prairie Regional Hospital Foundation. The change was deemed necessary to support the new hospital (open 2019) and the existing QE2 Hospital.
They announced a new $20 million Key to Care Capital Campaign, which is the largest campaign of any regional Hospital Foundation in Alberta. “This is an aggressive goal and we believe that if any community can rise to this challenge, it will be this one”, says Lyle Carlstrom, Co Chair of the Campaign.
The campaign is comprised of 4 components; the purchase of specialized medical equipment, the equipment legacy fund, healing through art initiatives and a patient educational component.
On Saturday, at the Festival of Trees Gala, 2 lead gifts were announced.
Seven Generations Energy Ltd and the Ken & Teresa Sargent Charitable Foundation in combination with Ken Sargent GMC and Sean Sargent Toyota each announced a $1 million dollar commitment to the campaign. More announcements are pending.
The use of food banks is up all across Canada, and we’re experiencing an increase here in Alberta, and Grande Prairie. Layoffs in the energy sector continue… the Salvation Army is reporting an increase of 30% for food bank use over the last few months.
The Food bank is in need of non-perishable food donations all year round, and typically sees a drop off in donations after Christmas. The Salvation Army will also have their kettles out, which is their main fundraiser for all operations. Please keep that in mind with any extra you may have this holiday season.
Star Wars is the big one. A lot of people have been waiting a long time for this movie… in fact the second I walked out of Ep1 I knew the next two would suck and hoped something would happen to not ruin the original Star Wars for me.
Disney has also released it’s movie plans for the next few years, including a second Guardians of the Galaxy (May 5 2017 yahoo)
also on the list is :
live action Jungle book
a 3rd cars movie
A great event coming to Grande Prairie November 24th. Breakfast with the Guys! Olympians in town (Jesse Lumsden and Helen Upperton) , with the hopes of putting an END to violence and abuse against Women.

That doesn’t include whatever else Kevin did last night he wants to talk about, which is likely a 6 episode review of Breaking Bad. Next week I heard rumor he was going to start watching Friends.
Lots of rumors about a Guns N Roses return to the stage, together! Yes, it appears even Axl Rose and Slash can get together, if we’re talking millions of dollars from a reunion tour (let’s face it, they aren’t doing it for ‘fun’ or even the love of music”
Fact is there are still legions of fans (such as myself) that have never seen GnR and would like to be ‘Welcome(d) to the Jungle’
