Loved reminiscing about this trip from 2011! I recently found some old footage from a trip we took with some friends to the Caribbean. We spent a number of days cruising from island to island and had so much fun. One of the excursions we went on was at the Tree Top Adventure Park in St. Lucia. The zip lines there were so much fun and the staff were great! If you will be in St. Lucia I highly recommend the Tree Top Adventure Park Zip Lines.
Last week I had the opportunity to take a youth group from our church down to the West Glacier area in Montana to camp. It is a beautiful area in the mountains with a lot to do. We spent a day with Glacier Raft Company doing some white water rafting. The water levels were lower than average the it was a little cool that day, but we still had an excellent time. I would definitely recommend Glacier Raft Company.
We also spent a day at Whitefish Mountain. I have spent a lot of time on the mountain skiing in the winters but I’ve never experienced any of their summer adventures before. Some of our group spent their time in the Aerial Adventure Park and had a great time. I took a group on the Zip-Line Tours and we loved every minute of it. Soaring high above the ski slopes, over ravines & through the trees was a great experience. With some of the lines reaching up to 1,900 feet in length and as high as 300 feet above the trees it was a great adventure. We had the opportunity to enjoy seven different lines, all with breathtaking views of the mountains. It’s definitely an activity I’m happy to refer others to.
This is a short video of three of the zip-lines at Whitefish Mountain
Going through some old videos and found my rodeo tapes. This video includes rodeos from when I was in the Chinook Rodeo Association, the Foothill Cowboys Association, the Canadian Intercollegiate Rodeo Association and the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association. I miss doing this!
This video was one that my wife put together when we got married in 1996. It’s fun to watch, she included a lot of my wrecks from high school rodeo. Rodeo was a big part of our life when we got married. In fact, we were married on a Tuesday because I had rodeos from Wednesday through Sunday that week!
Back in February of 2013 I posted about an article that Business in Focus Magazine wrote about myself and Kodiak Mountain Stone. In November of this year they wrote a follow-up article which can be found at the following link:
I’ve dedicated a lot of my blog to our Education Planat Kodiak Mountain Stone. This week I want to thank all those who took the time to vote for us in the Alberta Venture and ATB Financial Small Business Superstars contest. Over 160 businesses were nominated for these awards and we were lucky enough to be chosen as one of the finalists in the HR Superstars category due to our Education Plan. Throughout October and November people voted online for who they thought were the most deserving of this award in each category and we (Kodiak Mountain Stone) were fortunate enough to be the winner in our category.
In my previous blog posts I have talked about our Education Plan at Kodiak Mountain Stone. We have been fortunate enough to have gained some recognition from our program. Alberta Venture magazine has honored us as one of the finalist in The Small Business Superstars contest.
We have had great support so far, but we are trailing in votes by a small margin after the first month of voting. Anyone and everyone is encouraged to vote until the closing of the contest at the end of November, 2012.
To vote you are asked to open an account, which consists of an email address and a password. At that point, Alberta Venture offers some great opportunities to receive content from them. But if you wish, you can also opt out of receiving any content. By voting, you can also have the opportunity to win tickets to the Business Person of the Year luncheon in January as well as the chance to win subscriptions to Alberta Venture magazine.
We would very much appreciate you support by voting for us. Thank you!
