The 9-hole family friendly disc golf course in Jubilee Park offers two levels of play, beginners and those wanting more challenge. The course is available for free play, just bring your own disc. A great selection of discs are available for purchase at Sport Excellence.
 
The UDisc app for iPhone and Android is available as a free download. You can see the layout, record your score, find other disc golf courses as you travel and more.
 
The baskets are all in, tee box locations are marked and sign posts are installed. Concrete will soon be poured for the tee boxes and sign design is underway. Sponsorship of tee signs is available. Email CamroseDaybreak@gmail.com for more information.
Kidsport Camrose worked for quite some time to acquire valuable, lightly used sport equipment from Sport Central in Edmonton. A donation from the Camrose Swans & Roses Lions Club kickstarted funding a $2,500 donation to Sport Central for thousands of dollars worth of equipment.
 
A call for space to house the equipment and provide a venue to distribute that equipment to those in need was answered by Dianne Kohler at the Camrose Regional Exhibition (CRE) who offered space in their administration building. Rick Picher, Clarence Hastings and other members of the Men’s Shed stepped up as volunteers to organize and operate the distribution center, dubbed 4 R Kids (reflects the mission of Retrieve, Repair, Recycle, Redistribute) in conjunction with Kidsport Camrose.
 
Donations of shelving from the Real Canadian Superstore and Canadian Tire have been assembled and sport equipment is arriving for a planned August opening. City and county children and youth in need of equipment will be referred by community partners, including Kidsport Camrose, to receive equipment, at no cost. Kidsport Camrose also provides funding for registration in sports to further reduce barriers to participation.
 
Kristy Smith of Kidsport Camrose remarked ‘This has become an awesome partnership. Men’s Shed, CRE, Lions Club and many local businesses have made this possible’.
 
To learn more about 4 R Kids, registration funding and other activities of Kidsport Camrose email Camrose@Kidsport.ab.ca. Kidsport Camrose is the featured charity in the Camrose Chase the Ace Progressive Raffle with sales ending with the draw on July 28. Check out CamroseChasetheAce.org for information and to buy tickets.
While we reflected on current and historical events, Canada flags were flying during Canada Day to share the promise of growth and understanding in the future.

The Rotary Club of Camrose Daybreak decided to tap their inventory of Canada flags to show support and appreciation for everyone that is working to get past this pandemic.
 
Flags were deployed at the Welcome to Camrose signs on the east and west highway entrances to the city. Look for individual flags to be deployed throughout the city in the coming days.
