Big Valley shoots for early minor hockey registration

All interested players are asked to pre-register for the upcoming Big Valley minor hockey season so that organizers have an idea

All interested players are asked to pre-register for the upcoming Big Valley minor hockey season so that organizers have an idea what teams they will be able to accommodate.

To pre-register or for more information, call registrar Amanda Lucki at 403-876-2503.

Please note all parents must complete the “Respect in Sport” online certification before their child can be registered. That can be done by going to the provincial website,, and click under the parent tab.

Please don’t wait until the fall to let the association know that your children want to play hockey — or there might not be a team for your child.

The David Kastik Memorial Golf Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, July 7, in Big Valley, beginning at 9 a.m. It marks the second year where family, friends and volunteers will come together for 18 holes of laughs, memories and mulligans.

The second annual Kastik Cup will again be held at the Big Valley Golf Course. The challenging, quaint course is run by dedicated volunteers who enjoy the sport. The course boasts finely manicured Prairie wool and some of the finest and most challenging sand greens in Alberta.

Last year, the Kastik Cup was a huge success. Everyone is welcome to join the fun again this year. Pick up registration forms at Granny’s Fudge Factory. Don’t miss out. Spots are filling up fast.

Wow, time sure flies. Seems we’ve barely begun, and suddenly we find the 2011-12 school year is at its end.

Big Valley students worked hard all year, but June found them particularly busy with all the tests, track meets, field trips and excursions.

Despite often wet or chilly weather, our students were able to enjoy campouts, the Calgary Zoo, Fort Edmonton, as well as many other end-of-year activities arranged for them.

After graduation and awards presentations, the students and teachers must be more than ready to welcome the summer break.

Thank-you to all the teachers and staff of Big Valley School for the hard work put into this academic year. Your efforts are truly appreciated. Thank-you to all the parents who volunteered their time and talents to help make this year a success.

Congratulations to all the Big Valley students for this year’s accomplishments. We have many reasons to be proud of the great kids of our village.

Happy Canada Day to everyone and have a fun and safe summer vacation.
