Bob Scammell – Alberta Outdoors
It doesn’t matter that, in the midst of a soft winter, with sunlight and its warmth increasing, this always seems to be cabin- fever, shack - nasty season for Alberta outdoors people where the bad news just keeps piling on.
Within a week we’ve got the first mad cow disease - infected bovine and the first Chronic Wasting Diseased ranched elk in Alberta in many years. Informed critics are concerned that there seems to be a provincial agenda to keep the elk case secret.

 This may not seem like a big thing but for the Bandits playing in the opening round is something the team has been accustomed to not doing.
 Unfortunately for the boys from Brooks, a loss to the Camrose Kodiaks Saturday all but dashed the chances of the Bandits from placing first. The team sits nine points back of the Kodiaks with both teams having eight games remaining.  Full Story >
