This Is How You Snowshoe When There’s No Snow!

snowshoe trophyLast month Turner Valley’s very own Lori Cloakey-Collins of Cougar’s Sports Bar ran yet another successful Snowshoe Softball Tournament. Lori has been involved in running these tournaments for thirty years and there’s no-one better qualified.

Proof of this is in the fact that the tournament was a full-house and raised $3,000 for the Oilfields Food Bank. With the current economic downturn and the demands on the Food Bank this was a very welcome donation!

Eight teams of ten players each played on two ball diamonds in Turner Valley over the weekend and the winner was Team Swamp Donkeys.

Lori, the Food Bank and the community thank you for your 30 years of devotion to this area.
