Medicine Hat Media

Medicine Hat Community Sites

There have been quite a few Medicine Hat community sites popping up lately, Medicine Hat Media being one of the new kids on the block. There is also some more long-running community sites you might not be aware of (but chances are that you are). This post is dedicated to listing all the blog-like, social, or community based Medicine Hat sites that are out there. I have even posted some very obscure ones I found on my hunt.

Mad Hatters

Also known as “medhatblog”, The godfather’s of all alternatives to Medicine Hat Media, originally started in March of 2006 started with a simple concept, as stated by Skeet (one of the three bloggers):

The concept of this blog is to discuss all things pertaining to Medicine Hat in a candid, mainly factual style with open discussion. Something that you do not receive from the mainstream media. No sugar coating here. We will strive to make at least a post a day.

The general theme of the site appears (by the content) to be largely about breaking news and Medicine Hat/Canada politics, obviously in a less mainstream tone/setting.

Medicine Hat Forums

This site (or forum) popped up at about the same time Medicine Hat Media did, but I never found it, even when doing extensive searches until recently when I found it in Google on a random Medicine Hat related search. It’s a Medicine Hat forum, exactly like the name suggests where users can discuss anything relating to Medicine Hat (and other stuff as well).

The Mad-CAPCS Of Medicine Hat

The Mad “C.A.P.C.S.” (Citizens of Alberta for Positive Community Standards) of Medicine Hat is a unique blog about political and social news about  and relating to the C.A.P.C.S. Originally posted and reported in length on the Mad Hatters blog, spider, the owner of The Mad-Capcs Of Medicine Hat started posting on his own site. There’s plenty of good articles on his site if you don’t know about any of this, but chances are you remember the incident when they ruled that bikinis were pornographic and shouldn’t be allowed in view of children (referring to magazines/books).

Now for some of the more obscure ones:

Medicine Hat Mommies

Medicine Hat Mommies is well… I’m not sure exactly since I didn’t actually register to the forum (considering that they lock all viewing to non-registered users). I didn’t want to exactly pretend to be a “Medicine Hat Mommy” either. Basically though, you already gathered what the site is about from the name. It runs on a forum software so it’s all about message board-style discussions.

Medicine Hat Dart League (M.H.D.L.) Dart Players Blog

This is kind of a weird one, but I guess serves all the people involved. I was kind of surprised this site existed when I first saw it. Hopefully I get more people playing darts in Medicine Hat by posting it here, haha. The site is run by Dave Curthoys.

Medicine Hat College Library Services Blog

Kind of another weird one, but pretty useful if you are a frequent user of the Medicine Hat College Library. It’s been around a surprisingly long time, since November 17th, 2005. It doesn’t actually have any commenting system, but it does classify as a blog.

This has just been a quick rundown of all the sites I know of. Please submit any that I didn’t mention here. I know as Medicine Hat continues to grow, more and more sites will be popping up.

    Hi, I noticed this site a while ago and meant to write. Sorry I never got around to it before now. I kept forgetting.

    Any way I thought I would drop you a line about our website and league. There are roughly 400 members in the league. We have been around for a very long time now, and are considered a must go to City from Dart player around the Country and from other Countries, Of recent interest. Bill Hatter is president of Darts Alberta and the National Darts Federation of Canada. He was presented a volunteering award from the Province a few weeks ago for his dedication to the Sport.
