VI Hurricanes visit Denver

On February 6, Shaylene Gjesdal and Taylor Rose from Gold River traveled with their AAA Female Major Midget hockey team, the Vancouver Island Hurricanes, to Denver, Boulder and Littleton Colorado to play four games of hockey and partake in a tour of the University of Colorado Boulder.

Seventeen skaters and eleven adults departed the Island from Duke Point and met up to jump on a Charter bus to Seattle International Airport. The flight was delayed by one hour, and after many bumps in the road the team finally found their pillows at 4 am Denver time.  Friday the girls toured the University and played the first of four games.  The VI Hurricanes played two State teams twice.  The U17AAA team is coached by Pierre Turgeon an ex NHL player.  His daughter is the team captain and very skilled.  The U19AAA team is coached by a former Campbell Riverite, and weekend organizer, Marnie Hill.  The girls played hard and learned a lot about the human body and extreme elevation; they did not win but made a few lifelong memories.  Marnie organized two breakfasts for the team after each game where they made some great friends. On the way home we traveled by van, train, plane, bus, ferry and truck. (Sounds very much like a movie I once watched.)

Anita, Taylor, Shaylene and I, would like to thank everyone in Gold River, and our families for supporting the team and our girls with fundraiser purchases and bottle donations.  Thank you to our Local Team Sponsors “The Lodge at Gold River” and “LA Excavating”.  Thank you also to President of Campbell River Minor Hockey Megan Mills, for hosting our team this season.  We would also like to give a huge bouquet of hockey sticks to Dennis Bellavance for all your dedication to female hockey and our team.  We would not be playing this year without your countless hours towards organizing the season.  We have a few more trips to go yet and playoffs start in March.

Thank you, Gold River. Ellena & Shaylene Gjesdal Anita & Taylor Rose

New Community Directory Underway

A new printing of the Gold River / Tsaxana Community Directory is now underway.  If you have any additions, changes, or deletions you can:

email: strevis [at] cablerocket [dot] com

mail: PO Box 985, Gold River, V0P 1G0

or drop off at: A Lot on the Side Courier, located at the entrance to the Village Square Plaza.

Please be sure to include all of your information. Listings may have a street address, box number or no address at all. We are also looking for people who “do stuff” in our community. You don’t need to buy an ad to be listed, we just want people to be able to find you. If you’re the guy/gal that ‘does plumbing’ (or electrical, small appliance repair, nails, home parties, housekeeping etc.) and you want people to know how to reach you, let us know!

We are also looking for some community input on the directory. Is there other information you would like to see included? Changes to the format or layout? Ideas for the cover art/photo?

Do you know someone new to town? Please put them in touch!

Notice From Gold River Health Clinic

Update from Donna Schneider at BCAS:  Our on-call Nurses pagers are down, they are using one of the BC Ambulance pagers.  When someone calls 911, they need to advise that they would like an ambulance. When the ambulance call taker picks up, they need to explain that they are trying to get a hold of the GR nurse, who is using a BCAS pager, and they will take it from there. 

The on call pager system is currently undergoing problems at the moment.  (This is the number you call after hours to reach a Nurse.)

The Clinic has advised that if you need a Nurse after hours, please call 911 and let them know you are trying to reach the on call Nurse in Gold River, and they will re-direct your call.

The Clinic hopes to have the system fixed as soon as possible.
