Lego Mania with Robin Sather

Medicine Hat Mall is holding their annual Lego Competition this weekend, with Lego fans invited to build their masterpieces and take a look at some impressive creations.

Robin Sather is one of 14 Lego Certified Professionals in the world and the only Canadian with that certification. He made a visit to the Gas City last year where he built a replica of Medicine Hat's famous Saamis Teepee, and will return to build another massive creation at the mall this weekend.

He talked with Colin on the Magic Morning Show Friday.

Also at the event will be the Alberta Institute of Mentors and Builders of Tomorrow (AIMBOT), and they will be bringing a 20,000-piece robot named Contiuum Shift.

The competition runs during Medicine Hat Mall's regular hours on Saturday and Sunday, and all ages are welcome to compete and play!

Happy Father's Day!

Thanks to everyone who sent us entries for our "Dads Being Dads" Father's Day contest, and congratulations to our winner, Vikki Burkey! She won our grand prize of passes to the Elmwood Glof Club and a set of tools from NAPA Auto Parts!.

Here is the photo that Vikki sent us on Facebook...

With it, she wrote:

"I wanted to enter Ross in this Father's Day contest because I don't know anyone else who does as much as he does in a day. We have had many ups and downs in life but he always finds the bright side and always keeps pushing though it all. To have someone who is able to provide for his family, be a shoulder to lean on and be a little girls hero is above and beyond! His daughter is what lights up his... life and has made him stronger, watching him teach her new things just takes my breath away. He is ALWAYS lending a helping hand to my grandpa and his very own family, he is someone who never stops helping and always puts others first. I don't just appreciate him on Father's Day simply because he is always on the go and lighting up a room he walks in, so here is a very happy early Father's Day!"
 
Congratulations again to our winners, and we hope everone has a happy Father's Day with their dads!
