Limited space remains in summer golf camps

The Selkirk Saints Athletic program is gearing up for the 6th installment of the annual golf camp that is quickly gaining notoriety across B.C.

KEEPING IT REAL: Are NHL Refs Tougher on Canadian Teams?

 Is it my imagination or are the NHL refs favoring the U.S. teams when they play Canadian teams? This radical thought crossed my mind last year during the playoffs: it just seemed to me that whenever I watched a Canadian team in the NHL playoffs come up against ANY U.S. contender, the refs were tougher on the Canadian teams when calling penalties.

The Gathering at Red Mountain: Back for another round

The Gathering at Red Mountain: Back for another round

Last year’s impromptu ‘Gathering’ brought together the legendary group of friends who perfected the freeski alpine lifestyle, melding mountaineering with mogul-mania and fashion with free-dog in Verbier in the 1970s and 80s. News of the frenetic blend of skiing, philosophizing and partying that ensued over three days in March 2009 at Red Mountain traveled through the blogosphere and pub counter conversations throughout the West, and the call was made for a repeat performance.

The Gatherers must gather again, bigger and better!

Selkirk Saints suffer

in
Both men’s volleyball and hockey experienced the same gut wrenching disappointment this weekend as they saw commendable efforts come up just short of the finish line.

Capilano University was in town on Friday night to face the Saints men’s volleyball squad that was still glowing from a strong finish last semester when they conquered cross Kootenay rival, College of the Rockies in a stunning five set victory.
