Cruisin' to End MS

1 dollar

Today is Cruisin' to End MS Day at A&W in Swift Current and all across Canada, where a dollar from every Teen Burger sold today will go to the MS Society of Canada.

Multiple Sclerosis affects so many people in our community, in fact, Canada has the highest rates of MS in the world, and Saskatchewan has the highest prevalence of the disease in this country. Just by grabbing a Teen Burger today, you are helping those suffering with MS, the families supporting them, and research toward finally finding a cure.

There are lots of other fun things happening today at the local A&W. They will be selling Root Beer Floats for $3.00, making prize draws including a raffle for a small fridge, and the Eliminators Car Club will be bringing some classic hot rods to the parking lot. Also, the Eagle 94.1 will be broadcasting live from 7:00 to 9:00pm!

The Clearwater Drive in Is a Busy Place!

The Clearwater Drive in is a busy place these days! They are now running the theater 6 days a week! The movies they are playing are awesome too!

Just a while back I personally went for Jurassic world, and Pitch Perfect 2, and both of those movies had me entertained all night!

It rally is the perfect chance to get out of town and experience something you don’t always get to experience!

In case you don’t know where the theater is, it’s super easy to get too! Just head straight north out of town towards the Saskatchewan Landing, and through the town of Kyle. Drive just past Kyle and it’s a kilometer or so east of the highway on a grid road!

If you want to go checkout a movie at the theater, you always have a chance to do so for free, if you check out our facebook or twitter page at 9 o’clock sharp on Tuesday and Thursday mornings!

Good luck!

What an Exciting Weekend!

Monster trucksThe Lineup from the Weekend!

This past weekend was something super exciting! Kinetic Exhibition Park was completely sold out both Friday and Saturday night as Monsters and Mayhem was underway!

I was able to make it Friday night and it was really awesome! From the Tough trucks through the monster trucks and the freestyle motocross it was really a great time!

One of my favourite parts from the whole show was when one of the Trucks hit a jump so hard, he broke the Front Driver side wheel clean off of his truck! Also while the Motocross was happening, I couldn’t get enough of the insane high flying tricks!

Just in case you missed it, be sure to try and make it next time. As Monsters and Mayhem will be back at Kinetic Exhibition Park for another exciting show!
