The Long Shot
I’m on the blue line. My hands are sweating. My heart is racing. I get the puck. Can I make the shot? Then I think “this is a long shot” I lift my stick and.....
We are a country based on long shots. Throughout history Canadians have sought out challenges that seemed unattainable and taken the long shot. In the face of adversity, we have formed our great nation together; Terry Fox, Viola Desmond, Nellie McClung, Indigenous leaders, Tommy Douglas, Chris Hadfield, David Suzuki, Wayne Gretzky, and Hayley Wickenheiser to name a few. These great men and women had an idea, a vision, a goal and believed in something bigger than themselves. They inspired change in people, communities and our nation. Like them, we believe that we have a responsibility to contribute -and to play hockey! We want to BE the change we want to see in the world and have committed to three regular gifts of service; being Snow Angels, the Calgary Food Bank, and our Parent Challenge. We hope our energy and creative spirit motivates positive changes in the world. Today, like those who have come before us, we are taking this long shot; hoping our efforts afford us the life changing opportunity to play Hockey on the Hill! With your help and encouragement there’s no limit to what we can accomplish. As Wayne Gretzky said, “You miss 100% of the shots you never take”. Together we are strong. We are proud to be Canadian!

They jumped over hockey sticks, skated tight turns around the cones, and superman dove under another hockey stick. The boys were so fast that there were some tires and sticks that were flying throughout the relay race and in the end our Mustangs won a hard fight against Shaw Meadow's Angry Birds and had a fantastic time! Please see the attached photo of them on the ice as they won! The boys had a fantastic time and were proud to represent the McKnight Mustangs on the Ice!!! At the exciting end of the evening, the Flames defeated the Oilers 4-3!
Having some fun on the ice!
