Two shows downtown Whitecourt, pretty amazing. They were one of a kind shows and Octane Addictions did a spectacular job. Have to love Willie, Cody and Shad. What they do is pretty gutsy and looks like a heck of a lot of fun!!! Thanks Tyler for managing the group and getting them to the show. What’s better was that the shows were free, because of our sponsors. Thank you to our Gold Sponsors: Pembina Pipeline, Tri Jet Services, KAPS (Keyera) and United Rentals. Silver Sponsors were Scott Safety, Greystone Electric, Ralcomm, Millar Western, Strydhorst Enterprises, Bronze: Infratech, First Choice Truck & Car Wash, ANC, Herc Rentals, All Around Fencing Community Sponsors: UFA, Kanata, Microtel, Travelodge, Adrenaline Powersports. We also had some pretty amazing companies with all the last minute adjustments – Town of Whitecourt helped us with clean up on the Freestyle, GFI Crew, Stratty, Whitecourt Service Centre, RPM Powersports, Shuck Girls & Friends, Rev Volleyball Group for helping with the fencing and banners. Thanks to the Brick and Servus Credit Union for hotdogs and hot chocolate. MOST OF ALL, THANK YOU TO THE VOLUNTEERS THAT CAME OUT TO SET UP AND TAKE DOWN. AMAZING JOB EVERYONE. WE PULLED IT OFF!!
