Teen Group in Inglewood and Ramsay

February 28th, 2013

We received this note from Inglewood’s Cheryl Myers:

A few Inglewood residents got together to discuss a Teen Club. The idea is Inglewood and Ramsay teens have a night at the Skate Shack designated just for teens. It would be open for anyone living in either of these communities that are in grades 7 to grade 12. We spoke with the Inglewood Board of Directors and Hall Manager who got behind this idea, and will make space and some funds (OK the word funds might be stretching it) available for this club on Saturday nights.


Back in the 1990’s there was a really active group of teens in Inglewood. Dave Marshall and Bob Coburn were just two of the adults that helped to make this happen. During this time the teens ran the concession at the shack as a way to fund their group and did talent nights and bottle drives to help raise funds. Another… tradition in Inglewood was Monica Reid’s work in having the youth support the haunted house event at the Halloween Party.


So before we go any further, we need to talk with you guys, “The Teens”. There is no sense in a bunch of adults thinking this is a great idea if the teens don’t. As well, it isn’t an adult night, it will be a teen night, so we need teens to help build and develop what this club will be. The idea is that the Teen Club will be a year round event, not just when the ice is on.


If you are in grades 7 to grade 12, living in Inglewood or Ramsay, then please join us on Saturday March 2 at 7 pm at the Inglewood Skate Shack to share your ideas and suggestions that will shape the Teen Club and make it yours!


If you need more incentive, we will have free pizza and pop.


If you have questions, please call Suzanne 403.265.4655 or Cheryl 403.208.8397

International Festival of Animated Objects, March 9-17

February 25th, 2013

Has it been two years already since the last amazing edition of the International Festival of Animated Objects?

This year’s line-up promises to be even more awesome, according to festival organizer Xstine Cook:

Thirty years ago I made my first mask, twenty years ago I moved to Ramsay, ten years ago CAOS was born. It’s a milestone of sorts, and we’re celebrating with the biggest, craziest lineup ever. I acknowledge each and every one of you for the role you’ve played in building this uniquely Calgarian festival. The most delicious part for me is pitting our shooting stars, Western Canada’s emerging talent, against epic superstars of international renown from Mexico, France, the UK, USA, and Montréal. Rejoice as their mad brilliance shines upon us.

Tell Avenue Magazine that Ramsay is the Best Neighbourhood

February 7th, 2013

It’s that time once again: Avenue Magazine’s annual Best Neighbourhoods Survey.

Disagree with this year’s results? Want to make sure that your neighbourhood is included in the results for 2013?

Determining a best neighbourhood comes down to the people who live there.

Avenue’s annual Best Neighbourhoods results start with a survey that asks Calgarians about what is most valuable in a neighbourhood. Are safety and large yards important to you? Do you want to live close to downtown? Which amenities do you care most about? Your opinion on those factors helps us determine the definition of “best.”

We take that criteria, as well as information on crime statistics, property value, access to amenities and more, and give that information to our partners at Leger Marketing. They crunch the numbers and rank Calgary’s best neighbourhoods.

Have your say in Avenue’s 2013 Best Neighbourhoods.


The survey closes on February 28 2013.

Ramsay Inspiration Series #1: “Urbanized” on Saturday February 9

February 5th, 2013

Starting Feb 9th, we are going to build on the movement that we have been creating over the last year.

We will start hosting intentional gatherings at the Community Hall to inspire conversation, action, and excitement.

Our first event will be a documentary night with popcorn and beverages for the whole family. The movie is Urbanized.

This is a great look at design of cities. What is urban design? What does it do for us? How has it helped us and how has it failed us?

It’s a documentary about hope, how we can make positive changes and live in our cities and love it.

See you there!

  • “Urbanized”
  • Saturday February 9
  • 6-9pm
  • Community Hall
