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.

Game for Good

Fresh Air Cinema presents UPFresh Air Cinemas are bringing the movie “UP” to Athletic Park in Medicine Hat (Sunday,  August 23rd). It’s free admission, but you are expected to bring a non-perishable for the Medicine Hat and District Food Bank or a donation for the Santa Claus Fund.

If you’re coming, arrive well before 9PM to see this Pixar – Disney movie on the three story inflatable screen. Don’t forget a blanket or some lawn chairs! Screen provided by Sponsors include CCL Classic Communities, Rock 105.3, Servus Credit Union, and RBC Dominion Securities.

Taylor has commented that there will also be a live performance by the band, Between Satellites before the movie starts and while everybody waits for the sky to darken.

New look for the Santa Claus Fund website

New look for the Santa Claus Fund website

Lately, I’ve been trying to get around to featuring all the new local websites that have been popping up lately, but it’s really hard writing about all of them on a weekly basis now. It almost seems like around 2 or 3 of them pop up per week – I guess I am not helping the situation either, as it’s part of my profession, haha.

This week we have a new website for the Medicine Hat News Santa Claus Fund (Society). The logo was designed by local design studio, December 2nd, while the website was created and designed by TriCube Media for a Medicine Hat News organization. It’s great when three local companies can come together and develop something; albeit, TriCube Media and Medicine Hat News were already working together. The website URL has also changed over to “mhsantafund” rather than the obscure “mhscf”.

A great section of the site is the event section which is a huge list of events taking place as part of the Santa Claus Fund. The 17 or so events are all happening from July to December and most of them are recurring yearly. Hopefully we can even post a couple of them on Medicine Hat Media when they are near. There was a full story about the make-over posted in the Medicine Hat News today.

All information about the organization can be found on the new website.
