Hi Everyone,

I am sending out a Very Big Thank You to all of our Volunteers that attended our recent Casino nights this Past
Tues Feb 14th and Wed Feb 15th. Great Job Everyone !!

The Following Message comes from our Casino Co-ordinator Ron Williams.
(Ron also deserves a Huge Thank You for helping to put this all together. Great Job Ron, awesome Effort !!)

“Thanks to All the Volunteers for Helping out at this Years Fundraising Casino. A great effort and a great time by all involved.
Volunteering this Year were,
Graham Brockway, Goeff Weiss, Pat Methuen, John Konno, Howard Northcott, Michael Fitzsimmons, Rick Jolie, Larry Bisson, Allen Howard, Len Seib, Brian Caouette, Tim Story, Alan Vandersteen, Ross Lauri, Curtis Buck, Kirk Collins, Ralph Gardeski, Maurice Lakness, Roger Bolton, Ed Thurmeier, Guy Fortier, John Schmidt, Dan Muhlbach, Murray Cumming, Wayne Nelson, Jim Christensen, Joe Elder and Owen Melenka.

Also volunteering for two shifts were Don Jorgensen who worked the 6:45 pm to 3:30 am shifts both days and also managed the contractual responsibilities for our league for our casino advisors, the Cowboy’s Casino contract and AGLC financials and reports (spending our money). Don Cheveldayoff also worked the same two shifts and finally a special thanks to Bill Aitken who stepped up at the last minute to work both nights and manage the 11:15 pm to 3:30 am shifts in the count room. Bill took this responsibility on short notice due to an unexpected circumstance and his generosity was greatly appreciated.

I personally enjoyed working with all the above and thank them again for their time and generosity in volunteering.

Last but not least a big thank you to Norm Hurley who stood by his phone both days as the emergency call out. Fortunately his services were not required as all volunteers reported on time. But, he was available if necessary.

The earnings from this casino with be pooled with the earnings from all Calgary casinos in the first quarter of this year and divided equally among all groups holding those casinos with the funds distributed probably sometime in the second quarter of this year.

We have already requested another casino at the earliest possible date. It should be noted that our casino advisor has informed us that our next casino will probably be in approximately 22 months which would put it in the final quarter of 2024 "

Thats Great, thanks for the update Ron !! The League Appreciates the Effort !

And we also want to send a really big Thank You out to our newly registered, Brand New Player, Tim Skory. Tim registered with our League on the 11th and volunteered on the 12th for our Casino. Thats great League support Tim. It’s really appreciated by all. ( but we will still throw you out at 1st base if we can)

And I also want to personally thank Bill Aitken once again for stepping up on short notice when I had to step away from the Casino on very short notice. Thanks Bill, I really appreciate you filling in !!

Cheers Everyone,
Paul M
