Deadline for Scholarships has changed!

Ringette Alberta is once again offering up to four scholarships of $1,500! There is one major change with the application process this year, the deadline!!! Instead of applying this scholarship to your winter term, we are applying this to your fall term, so with that change, the new deadline for applications is on July 27th. You can mail, fax or personally drop off your scholarship application, just remember, we are looking for an official transcript, and sometimes faxing makes them unofficial (test it out before you send!).

If anyone would like more information on the scholarships, head over to the application here, or email Lauren Koster.

Dave Myers, RAB Executive Director, launches Canada 5000 Rally Against Alzheimer’s Tomorrow

One of the great things about working for Ringette is the sense of community our unique environment gives us. With that in mind, here is a quick note to let you know what one member of our ringette family is up to.

On June 10, Ringette Alberta’s Executive Director, Dave Myers, will set off with a codriver, Dave Clark, on the Canada 5000 Rally Against Alzheimer’s

For nine years, Canada’s rural and backcountry roads played host to one of the longest and most challenging automotive rallies of the 1960s, the Shell Canada 4000. Professional drivers and manufacturer-sponsored teams navigated 4000 miles across Canada every spring from 1961 to 1968 and again in 1971. In 2015, the Canada 5000 will follow various routes of the original rally, but it will be stretched out to 5000 miles from Vancouver to Halifax (plus the Edmonton to Vancouver trip). This is not your average Trans-Canada road trip though.Read More
