With less than a month to go before some Hatters could be faced with an empty Thanksgiving plate, Medicine Hat alderman and candidate for re-election Jeremy Thompson is hosting a fundraising barbecue on Saturday to benefit the Medicine Hat and District Food Bank.

All Hatters are invited to attend the come-and-go barbecue on Saturday from 12-3 PM in the Medicine Hat Lodge parking area. Cost for a hamburger or hot dog and a drink is $4.00, with proceeds donated to the food bank. Gluten free hamburgers will also be available.

“We are approaching an important time of year for organizations like the food bank,” Thompson said. “I hope that community members will take time to come out to our event on Saturday, lending the food bank some assistance along the way.” THE JUMP – Read the rest of this entry »

Medicine Hat boasts a bunch of hotels and motels, most of which are directly accessible from the TransCanada Highway. As a guide for anyone visiting Medicine Hat or needing a place to stay during renovations or moving, here is a comprehensive guide:

2009 Medicine Hat Stampede & Exhibition

2009 Medicine Hat Stampede & Exhibition

Looking for the 2010 post?

With the 2009 Medicine Hat Stampede & Exhibition well under-way, many are excited for this weekend when they will get the chance to visit the Exhibition portion of the event. The grounds officially opened today at noon. The festivities began with a pancake breakfast served at the Medicine Hat Lodge from 7AM to 10AM this morning where an estimated 2,500 people attended. There’s also another breakfast coming up on Friday if you missed this one – make sure you get the details in the guide supplied below.

Many people (like myself), wait until the weekend to enjoy all the festivals. This year it will be running until the 25th (Saturday). There’s plenty to do including rides, shopping, sightseeing, and don’t forget to spend a couple dollars trying to win overpriced stuffed animals! I’m a sucker for those coin pushing games, I probably spent like 25 dollars last year on them. How could I forget about the food? With a concession and/or food and drink place every couple steps you are sure to get your “eat” on. Some of my favourites include the real lemon aid stand with a side of Elephant Ears! Mmmm…

Already concluded in this years festivities was the Stampede Queen Contest, won this year by Candice Wutch followed up by Stacey Kading (crowned princess), and Cymara Shock. The event was on Saturday, July 18th and you can check out the Medicine Hat News video on the event here. Another one already finished is the annual Visual Arts Show which I sadly didn’t enter this year due to time. Dusty didn’t enter this year either; however, she won 1st place last year. I’ll post the results of that event here when I find them out. Most of the works should still be up though for viewing in the Cypress Centre – don’t quote me on that though.

There’s really too many events and things going on to talk about here though. If you want anymore information, please be sure to check out the official website, or grab yourself a PDF copy of the Stampede Event Guide 2009. Careful with the PDF. There’s some huge complex artwork included in it that brought my computer to a slowed halt. *Update* Alternatively, you may view Medicine Hat Media’s compressed computer-safe version here.

Stampede starts on full stomach – Medicine Hat News by Alex McCuaig

Since most things we post about on Medicine Hat Media are up and coming events or news articles, I thought a post about things to do in Medicine Hat all year-round would be a nice deviation. Here is a short compilation:

Medicine Hat Family Leisure Centre offers 4 pools, including a wave pool, lane swimming pool, and a deeper end to accommodate the three diving boards and rope swing. The pool also offers a water slide, steam room, adult hot tub, and a warmer pool for babies and younger children.

Shortgrass Library is a spacious library consisting of thousands of books, magazines, audio tapes and CD’s, spread over multiple floors. Also offered are meeting rooms that include room enough to seat people comfortably, Internet connections, projection screens and whiteboards. The library is not just used to sign out books, but also offers TV, VCR/DVD, overhead and slide projectors, and theater LCD projector rentals.

Medicine Hat Menus is a menu website that includes a very large assortment of restaurants in Medicine Hat. Their slogan “Decide before you dine” is nothing short of the truth, as with nearly 30 menu listings and 150+ restaurants listed you do not have to drive around wondering where to go. The website provides users with the address and phone number of any restaurant in its listing, and also provides menus for the restaurants who allow their menu to be posted online with the website, which is very handy when ordering. Coupled with Medicine Hat Menus, MH Restaurants is a sister-site and provides reviews for many restaurants in the city. Check them out to see what people have to say.

I know it might be weird posting things like this (kind of like the Kinsmen Auction previously), but I think whenever there is chariable or public service event going on, people should know about it. I believe this is a good service on behalf of Medicine Hat Media as well, so these types of businesses/companies don’t have to waste as many advertising dollars trying to get the word out. Or maybe it’s not weird at all?
