2010 Risk Tournament Poster

2010 Risk Tournament Poster

It’s happening again! The now seemingly-annual tournament for the Risk board game is taking place on December 5th this year. It’s in the same format as it was last year, but this year it seems like they got even more sponsors for the event (which is a good thing). Like last year, there is a $20 minimum donation which will all be going to charity. Also like last year, it’s being coordinated by Jace Anderson (with website help from Derek Gavey). You need to pre-register, soon! Do it! Do it now!

It’s in a different location and time this year… which might work out better for some. The event will be held at the Southside Events Centre (4 Strachan Court SE, Medicine Hat) on Sunday, December 5th from 3PM to 11PM. They raised over $1400 last year – all of which, after event expenses/prizes went to the Medicine Hat News Santa Claus Fund.

The 1980’s are coming back to Medicine Hat for one night thanks to Alderman Jeremy Thompson’s re-election campaign.

As a kick-off to election week, Thompson’s campaign team is hosting a “Totally Rad ‘80s Party” on Saturday, October 9. The event begins at 7:30 PM at Southside Events Centre and boasts the Calgary-based “RETRObution,” a popular ‘80s cover band.

In addition to live music, the party will feature elaborate décor, custom cake from Cake Break and food. Local event planner Stephanie Richards promises a masterpiece of details.

“This will be an evening of reliving your favourite things from the 1980s,” said Richards. “From hostesses on roller skates to popular snacks from those years, you will feel like the clock has turned back. It promises to take Medicine Hat events to the next plateau.”

Party-goers are encouraged to dress in the style of the decade, with a prize for best dressed as well as door prizes. Tickets are $50 each or $350 for a table of eight. They can be purchased online at or by calling (403) 504-5647. THE JUMP – Read the rest of this entry »

Alderman and candidate for re-election Jeremy Thompson will be hosting a free family skate event on Saturday.

In order to encourage Hatters to get out and take an active part in this year’s election, Thompson rented the Encana Arena at the Family Leisure Centre and is hosting a meet and greet on the ice surface from 2:15-3:15 PM on October 2.

“I hope to see citizens from all walks of life at our family skate event,” Thompson said. “My hope is that not only will my current supporters come out, but also people whom I have not yet had a chance to meet or discuss my campaign with.”

Thompson played for the Medicine Hat Tigers before beginning his professional hockey career and also spent time on the ice coaching and directing hockey schools.

“This was a natural fit for a campaign event,” Thompson said. “Not only are we promoting physical activity, but we are encouraging and being involved in our community.”

The skate event immediately follows free family skate time. Patrons are invited to stay after the 1:00 – 2:00 PM public session ends to attend the skate session and meet and greet with Thompson and his family.
