Makeover for homeowner, home

Pat Tapper received a full make-over at Marc Anthony Academy of Cosmetology on May 14. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

Up until Wednesday, May 14, a make-over was new concept to Pat Tapper. But thanks to the generosity of realtor Diane Sparks-Cassidy, Prudential Power Play Realty, and Lonnie Morgan, manager of Marc Anthony Academy of Cosmetology, the single grandmother received a royal treatment. “It’s different,” she said, adding with a laugh, “It’s hard to be humble!” While Pat received some pampering, her home in Aldergrove was undergoing a similar treatment through the Act of Kindness (AOK) Extreme Home Repair project. Each year, volunteers transform the home of a local person or family facing difficult circumstances related to their housing and resources. This marks the 11th year that the Aldergrove Seventh-day Adventist Church has been refurbishing and restoring the homes of well-deserved recipients. This year’s recipient is Pat, who through the years has struggled with a number of health issues and limited funds. These factors have hampered her ability to maintain her house, which she moved into in 1981, when it was a year old. Despite this, she has managed to raise her grandson Chase since he was an infant. Pat has also provided shelter, when needed, for her teenaged granddaughter Crystal.

Pat Tapper (right), after her make-over courtesy of Marc Anthony Academy of Cosmetology. At 5 p.m. on Victoria Day Monday, May 19, Pat and Chase will have seen their newly refurbished home for the first time in 18 days. Pat and Chase have been staying about two blocks away from their house since May 2, and Pat said it “feels like a long while.” Pat promised she wouldn’t look at the home, in person or online, while it’s being renovated, and she’s kept her word. “I’m anxious, a little nervous,” she said, about the reveal. Pat said she is “more than thankful” for the generosity of the Aldergrove Seventh-day Adventist Church and sponsors, and for the efforts of all the volunteers. As of May 15, the AOK team’s wish list has dwindled.

Still needed are: • A new, small, white counter microwave; • a small garden shed; and • cash donations to cover sod, a couch, and kitchen appliances. Donors can receive tax-deductible receipts for amounts donated. Call the Aldergrove Seventh-day Adventist Church at 604-8565830 to donate. Volunteers have done a mountain of work already, and while there’s still plenty to do, a tour of the premises on Thursday revealed a vastly changed interior for the Aldergrove split-level. The team has been working tirelessly over the last two weeks, culminating in a reveal on May 19, Victoria Day. Things have been going well for the team as they approached the last few days, said Tim Gertz, one of the organizing volunteers. When asked if they will be finished everything on time, Gertz was upbeat. “Of course!” he said. “We’ve got the Big Guy on our side.” Volunteers have consistently turned up as they were needed for specific tasks to happen in the right order, he said, sometimes by planning, and other times by chance. On Thursday, an enormous amount of work was being done both inside and outside. As for the personal make-over, this is the fourth year that Sparks-Cassidy has funded this treatment for a recipient of the annual AOK Extreme Home Repair project. The makeover included a massage, pedicure, manicure, and make-up. “When I first found out about AOK I thought, ‘Hey, the house gets a makeover, why doesn’t the owner get a makeover?’” Sparks-Cassidy explained.

Dog park theft

Suspect on the run

Homicide investigators and police forces across the Lower Mainland are co-ordinating a manhunt for a violent thief who is suspected in a domestic shooting and is believed to be armed and on the run.

Big friendly Fidos

For all the bad news about dogs lately, it’s easy to pin the blame on certain breeds. Large, playful dogs tend to give people (and their pets) a level of anxiety that’s not always warranted. The truth is, some of the biggest dogs are some of the most docile and friendly. The American Kennel Club has released its list of six deceptively docile pooches. • More online

Owners rally for stolen pets Bereft dog owners are hoping a reward and a rally will help bring home their pets. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Sorrowful dog owners rallied in Langley Thursday night, hoping to bring attention to their six stolen canine companions. “I can’t eat or sleep,” said Emma Paulsen, a Delta dog walker who lost her own dog along with the dogs of five clients. The dogs were swiped out of the back of Paulsen’s truck Tuesday afternoon at about 1:30 p.m. She had brought the six dogs to the City dog park at 44th Avenue and 206th Street. After some exercise, she got the dogs into the back of a canopied pickup truck and went to use the nearby restroom. Less than 10 minutes later, someone had unlatched the canopy and all six dogs were gone. There hasn’t been a confirmed sighting since. Paulsen, who searched for hours on Tuesday and has been back since to keep looking, said she is now on the phone 24-7 hoping for tips. She and other dog owners have dropped off fliers at every animal protection centre in the Lower Mainland, including the Langley Animal Protection Society (LAPS). The suspicion is the dogs were stolen, rather than simply released, because none of them have been found in the surrounding suburban neighbourhoods. Paul Grant says he doubts his dog, Oscar, would have wandered far unless he was being led by a human. “He’s a rescue already, Scan picked up as a stray, with so he has a bit of separation anxiety,” Grant Layar said.

Mia

Buddy

He’s been dividing his time between work, searching for the dogs, and visiting his wife in the hospital after a recent surgery. She’s frustrated she can’t be helping to look, Grant said. Like the other owners, he’s heard plenty of theories about who might have taken the dogs, or why. “It really is hard to know what the motivation is here,” said Grant. Regardless of the motivation, some people are trying to profit from the theft of the six dogs. Colleen King, whose dog Teemo was taken, said her family and the others have received phone calls from someone claiming he could return the dogs for a reward – if the money was wired to him. The owners recognized the offer as a scam, but it did briefly raise false hopes for some of them. “It’s just absurd,” said Paulsen. King said her family is “heart-

broken” after the loss of their three-year-old dog. Like many other owners, she’s already been out searching twice in the area. “Everyone’s been posting flyers and searching everywhere they can think of,” she said. Someone, somewhere must know what happened to the dogs, she said. Grant agrees. Whoever has them should return them, he said. “Just leave them somewhere safe, call one of the numbers on the posters,” he said. Social media has exploded with information about the dogs, with articles being shared and linked to hundreds of times through Facebook and other websites. Numerous people have come forward to help, and at the rally Thursday evening, many people took posters with the dogs’ photos and names to put up in their own neighbourhoods or workplaces. “We really couldn’t ask for more,” said Paulsen. Meanwhile, White Rock realtor and TV personality Sarah Daniels has offered a $5,000 reward to anyone who returns the stolen dogs. The dogs are: • Mia – a black and Dog owners rallied with the community white pit bull to help find their missing pooches at an • Teemo – a grey bouoff leash dog park Thursday. vier poodle cross

Langley Township and its unionized employees have agreed to a contract, and there will be no strikes or other labour disruptions for the next few years. CUPE Local 403 and the Township signed a deal that will expire on Dec. 31, 2015. The contract will see workers get a total raise of 6.75 per cent over the four year term of the contract. New pay rates will take effect in June. The agreement now takes in the new Family Day holiday which began last year, and adds increased flexibility and expanded work hours for some types of

employees, and clarifies some contract language. “We are very happy we were able to come to an agreement. This is a fair and equitable settlement for both sides,” said Township Mayor Jack Froese. “We have reached a reasonable deal that is comparable with others within the region.” CUPE officials also agreed that the contract is in line with those being negotiated around the Lower Mainland. “While the negotiations took much longer than expected the deal meets the needs of the membership while ensuring that taxpayers continue to receive the high level of service they have come to expect,” said Paul Albrecht, president of local 403. CUPE Local 403 represents 418 full and part time workers, and a number of auxiliary employees as well. The Township fire department has its own union.

Education ministry adds stick to contract carrot

Teachers could see their pay cut by five per cent if they don’t sign a deal, the province says. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

On Thursday, the province unveiled the carrot, and on Friday, it revealed its stick in negotiations with B.C. teachers. The head negotiator for B.C. Public School Employers’ Association, Peter Cameron, said teachers’ wages will be cut by five per cent if a deal is not reached by the end of June. “Teachers are not doing certain things,” Cameron said

Friday, referring to recent job action. “They’re working less, they’ll be paid less.” Teachers have stopped meeting and communicating in writing with administrators, and are not supervising students during non-instructional time. Some districts have seen teachers stop going on field trips. On Thursday, education minister and former Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender unveiled a new offer that gave in to one of the BC Teachers’ Federation’s major complaints. He backed off on forcing a 10-year contract, proposing six years instead. Because the current contract expired a year ago, negotiations would begin again in five years. The government also offered a

$1,200 signing bonus for teachers if a contract was settled by the end of the school year. Teachers have moved from a proposed three-year contract term to a four-year term, and on Thursday, BCTF president Jim Iker was positive about the new announcement on Thursday. Cameron said the government is offering 7.3 per cent wage increases over six years, but did not have much to say about movement on class size and composition, the other major demand of the teachers. Teachers want smaller classes and more resources for special needs students. “Their proposal would have worse outcomes than the present [system],” Cameron told the

Trades always have a future

As the provincial cabinet minister responsible for development of B.C.’s natural gas resources, Rich Coleman is understandably optimistic about employment and all-round economic potential presented by the future of Liquid Natural Gas (LNG). He has to be optimistic. He and Premier Christy Clark and the entire BC Liberal government have tied the brightness of B.C.’s future to what has thus far proved to something of a flickering LNG flame. A statement about future LNG opportunities, released by Coleman, begins with the motherhood statement, “If there is one thing I’d tell young people today, it’s this: the future is in trades.” Indeed! The future has always been in trades. So has the past. So is the present. Trades have often been relegated to a secondary status in our education system. It hasn’t been an overt attack on the trades. In fact, there are lots of programs designed to promote trades education and training. But somehow, the youngsters whose goals include entering the workforce with a job that “gets your hands dirty” have always been seen as of a slightly lower caste than those who aspire to university, to pursue the sciences or liberal arts, with professional goals. Trades are generally seen as less glamorous than professions. But those who set their sights on the trades tend to find that their path has led them into a rewarding field, both in terms of personal fulfillment and financial stability. Oftentimes, tradespeople are hard at work while university graduates are still sending out resumés. It remains to be seen if LNG adds as much to trades prospects as Coleman and his fellow Liberals expect, but he’s right about trades being “the future.” They always were, always will be. – B.G.

Wildlife

Goslings easy prey for cars

Dear Editor, Once again this year, a unique situation was underway on Zero Avenue in Langley Township. Canada geese nest in a pond on the U.S. side of the road, then when their babies hatch, they herd them across the road into Canada to eat the grass along the edge of farmers’ fields. They do it several times a day, making a charming sight in the sunshine. Except for the cars. Zero Avenue is a notorious route for speeding cars, and again this year there were ongoing confrontations between geese and cars. The cars win, leaving dead and dying baby geese scattered along the road. But sometimes the cars lose too. One car will stop to allow the geese to pass, while the next car will either try to pass the first, or slam on the brakes at the last minute. Collisions are inevitable. For some reason, drivers feel that “honking” at the geese will get them off the road. Unfortunately, the noise simply scares the geese even more. The parents could simply fly away from the speeding cars, but they refuse to leave their babies – even if they die. Residents of Zero Avenue and the surrounding streets have approached the Township, asking for better signage and increased speed enforcement. Sadly, the Township has refused to put up

I live right across from the pond, and see the slaughter every year. This year I contacted the Wildlife Collision Prevention Program, which provided examples of useful signage to alert motorists. The Township has refused to implement any enhanced signage, but the residents in and around Zero Avenue have produced their own signage in an effort to stop the goose and car collisions.

The clear cut images, and images of logging trucks were taken from the public road by Anna or other people who live in the area. Anna R has taken a lot of her personal time away from her family, to stand up for our community, our trees, and our values. Ann-Michelle deReus, Langley

Odd Thoughts

Humour aimed at hunters missed the mark

Dear Editor, I found your writings [Gardeners – the real tough guys, May 13 Odd Thoughts, Langley Advance] to be rather offensive. To suggest that we hunters sit around all year and get fat? To suggest that we are concerned about what alcohol to take with us hunting? To suggest that there is little more to hunting than understanding the difference between a buck and a doe? Characterizing us as “killers,” and suggesting that our children are stupid?

I found it offensive and uncalled for. If it was supposed to be an attempt at humour, the mark was missed. It came as an insult to myself and other hunters. Before you try and make comparisons, you should know what you are comparing, and have some common sense. Clearly this was written by someone who has no clue about our sport or way of life. Sean Mabley, Langley

Women smokers, by the numbers

Ex-smoking mom shares her story

A Langley resident said she ‘tried everything’ to quit smoking, and said her daughter was the biggest reason why she’s an exsmoker today.

Karen Paulsen, her 18-year-old daughter Keana, and her partner Todd all quit smoking about the same time, this past January. “This isn’t the first time I’ve quit,” said Karen, a Langley resident. “I struggled to get pregnant when I was young. So when I finally had my daughter Keana, I was determined to quit and be healthy. And I stayed quit for 10 years. “But then my mom got cancer for the fourth time, and I caved. It was such a stressful time.” Karen’s mom made her promise to quit smoking before she died, but Karen admits she stumbled. “I tried everything: the patch, quit meds, cutting back, cold turkey. The truth is I loved smoking. It was my lifestyle. A lot of our friends still smoke and quitting is the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” she said. “But I don’t want to

– The No. 1 preventable cause of death and disease 1for women is smoking. – Percentage of women in Canada who smoke 13 during pregnancy. Complications

from smoking during pregnancy include premature birth, miscarriage, stillbirths, low birth weight, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). – Average number of cigarettes smoked daily by women smokers in Canada. A pack of 25 cigarettes costs $10 or more, so one woman spends close to $2000 a year on cigarettes alone. – Percentage of all cancers worldwide attributable to smoking. Women who smoke have higher risks for many cancers, including cancers of the lung, mouth, pharynx, oesophagus, larynx, bladder, pancreas, kidney, and cervix. – Percentage of women smokers have their first cigarette within five minutes of waking up. – Age at which health care providers encourage women who smoke to use non-hormonal methods of birth control due to concerns about increased risk of complications such as blood clots, heart attacks, and strokes. – Percentage of women smokers who attempted to quit at least once in the past year. – Percentage of women who say they want to quit smoking. million – the number of women (over the age of 15) who smoke in Canada.

Karen Paulsen and her 18-year-old daughter Keana quit smoking at the same time this past January. get sick. I want to make sure I’m here to see my daughter get married. She’s my biggest reason for quitting, that and the fact I have asthma.” So for now, instead of smoking, Karen crochets.

The BC Lung Association and QuitNow QuitNow is a province-wide quit smoking support resource managed by the BC Lung Association and funded by the BC Ministry of Health, and it’s been helping British Columbians quit for almost a decade. QuitNow manages the largest and most active “online quitter”

A9

Facebook community in Canada – where more than 11,000 users can go any time of day or night to share and support one another through the quit process. QuitNow also offers free phone, text and online quit coaching and a range of personal quit tracking and planning tools.

“I crocheted everything and anything,” she said. “My daughter started crocheting too! And my husband, who is artistic, never stops drawing. Luckily we quit in wintertime, so to get over the first few weeks, when the nicotine cravings were strongest, we spent a lot of time distracting ourselves by watching movies.” The BC Lung Association recently launched a new online “quit & win” contest through its provincewide smoking-cessation program QuitNow.ca. The contest challenges women to blow off for one week, from June 2-8, for a chance to win $1,000. Learn more about the contest at contest.quitnow.ca.

Karen also had success with QuitNow. “It’s a great support. I like checking in on their Facebook page. It’s good to share your experiences and celebrate milestones with others going through the same thing,” she said. “And all of us – Todd, my daughter, and I – use QuitNow to keep track of our quit stats. It’s a running joke between us. How much have you saved now? How many cigarettes have you not smoked?” In terms of advice, Karen reminds potential quitters, “Don’t let yourself get down if you slip up. Don’t beat yourself up. Just dust yourself off and start again. I’m doing it, day by day, and so can you!”

Equestrian

T-Bird opens season with new silica ring A $450,000 investment by Thunderbird Show Park equates into solid footing for equine athletes at the Langley equestrian centre. by Pamela Saunders

Contributor

B.C.’s biggest equestrian facility is gearing up for its 41st show season, and organizers are ensuring that riders will be able to put their best foot forward. After debuting two silica sand jumper rings last year, Langley’s Thunderbird Show Park has transitioned its Grand Hunter Ring to the new material. The upgrade represents a $450,000 investment that brings the Park up to 168,000 square feet of the most advanced and scientifically engineered footing in North America. The project took three months to complete and incorporates 1,800 tonnes of crushed rock, 450 tonnes of equestrian sand, 28,500 specialized custom-made drainage mats, more than 20,000 pounds of engineered German Geo Textile, and eight railcars of pure white silica sand. The Grand Hunter Ring becomes the third “signature” ring on the Thunderbird show grounds, and welcomes its first

competitors with the start of the Canadian Premiere Tournament and B.C. Open Tournaments at the end of May. “Competitors with experience on silica footing in Europe had high praise for its stability and firmness,” noted Chris Pack, vice president of tournament operations for the park. “We’re always looking for ways to improve our facility, and the riding surface is the most important consideration for any horse show.” Two years ago, Thunderbird secured 120 tonnes of silica to test, but unusually heavy rain delivered disappointing results. When the season ended, the T-Bird team revisited the idea of synthetic footing and sought a better mixture. They reached out to industry experts experienced with silica blends and through Irish Olympian and local trainer, Eddie Macken, connected with expert ring builders based in Europe who specialized in silica and blended textile arenas. Sand samples were brought in from all the available sources and tested specifically for Thunderbird. In the end, the team developed a mixture of a few types of sand with a German Geo textile syn-

Thunderbird staff then stepped in to bring the plan to life, determining that the new materials would work best if they enhanced their drainage grid system to move the water away from the sand more efficiently. Pack oversaw the installation of the mixture in the Park’s Sky-

Hi and Thunderbird Rings to rave reviews from World Cup riders. And when the rains came, the sand remained firm. “Footing has become our passion and we continue testing and doing research to make ours the most advanced and sound platform for horses and riders,”

Pack said. Admission to Thunderbird Grand Prix events is $10 per carload, including the $55k Purica Recovery EQ World Cup Qualifier, benefitting the Langley School Foundation, on Sunday, June 1. For more information and a full schedule, visit tbird.ca.

Chris Pack, vice president of tournament operations at Thunderbird Show Park, is looking forward to the $55,000 Purica Recovery EQ World Cup Qualifier scheduled for Sunday, June 1 at the Langley equestrian centre.

he most prestigious show jumping tournament of the season at Thunderbird Show Park, thus far, is less than two weeks away. The $55,000 Purica Recovery EQ World Cup Qualifier at the 85-acre Langley equestrian centre takes place Sunday, June 1 and will draw a star-studded cast of riders and their equine partners.

Chris Pack “Essentially it’s the start of the World Cup season for North America League,” Pack said. “It wraps up in the fall, so for all of North America, East and West Coast, this is the first stop on the World Cup circuit and this is the first opportunity they [rider-and-horse teams] have to qualify for next year’s World Cup.” The event will be held on grass in Thunderbird’s Grand Prix ring, unless there is, Pack noted, “some catastrophic weather.” “Then we’ll move it over to our new silica [sand jumper] rings,” Pack said. As many as eight nations will be represented at the World Cup, and the riders must jog their horses for soundness prior to the competition, Pack explained.

International field at Show Park on June 1 …continued from page A14 “A judge looks at them [the horses] to make sure they are healthy,” Pack said. “They have to be in good jumping shape and not sore, and right now we have 63 that are jogging. So it’s going to be an awesome class.” Among the confirmed riders of note include Ireland’s Jennifer Crooks, American Hardin Towell, Enrique Gonzalez from Mexico, Nayel Nassar from Egypt, and Langley’s Brian Morton. Morton is always a contender, Pack said. “He’s shown here forever and he used to show on the ponies,” Pack said. “He was fearless, then. As he’s developed as a rider, he’s gotten better mounts. People have put him on better horses.” Morton is part owner of Equimark Inc. and has teamed up with Mark Laskin, who Pack describes as a “brilliant rider and a brilliant horse person,” who also happens to be the Chef D’Equipe for the Canadian show jumping team. “He’s given Brian such good guidance and with Brian’s riding skill, there is no limit to what he can do,” Pack said. Looking ahead to June 1, Pack predicted of Morton, “Especially with the mounts that he has, he could be the winner.” This upcoming World Cup event is the second largest of its kind on the Thunderbird schedule.

In August, the show park hosts its annual $100,000 Grand Prix which this year takes place on Aug. 17. “We have two World Cup qualifiers, the Purica one and the $100,000,” Pack said. The North American Riders Group (NARG) ranked Thunderbird second among the top 25 equestrian facilities on the continent, behind Spruce Meadows. Thunderbird’s ranking is based on an overall points score for everything from footing and stabling, to course design and ceremonies. Located at 24550 72 Ave., Thunderbird celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2013, and last week, a visitor who hasn’t been to the park for six years was impressed with what he saw, and how much the facility has developed overt the past few years. “Because we see it every day, we lose perspective,” Pack said. “T-Bird has just grown up. Since [president] Jane [Tidball] came on eight years ago, she really wanted to make sure that everything got refined at T-Bird. I think that’s one of the things that people notice the most. Jane is very good at spotting the details.” Admission to the June 1 World Cup is $10 per carload and ringside, catered seats had sold out. The competition gets underway at 2 p.m.

Thunderbird keeps growing

Thunderbird Show Park represents a solid and continuing connection between Langley’s equestrian past and future. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

Development has transformed much of Langley’s central and northwestern character over the past four decades. Rural landscapes have been re-populated with subdivisions of tightly packed suburban home, townhouses, rowhomes, and condominiums. Throughout it all, however, there has been a constant in the part of Langley that is affectionately known as the “Horse

Capital of B.C.” Thunderbird Show Park has been in the centre ring as a strong representative of the equestrian community throughout all the change. And in fact, it has grown stronger through the years. The park was ranked second in both 2012 and 2013 among show jumping venues throughout North America, achieving a 93 per cent rating in the comprehensive and rigorous North American Riders Group (NARG) assessment. Thunderbird was established in 1973 and entered its fourth decade in the equine business in Langley last year. In 1970, George and Dianne Tidball purchased property at 200th Street and Highway One, approximately where the Colossus Theatre now stands.

Park among North America’s best …continued from page B14

Soon after the purchase, construction began on a new riding arena, two stable buildings, and two outdoor riding rings, which would host the first show (quarter horse show and team roping) in 1972. Jumping horses soon followed, with the first hunter/jumper show held at the facility just a year later. By 1998, development was closing in on the property’s prime location. This prompted the decision to redevelop the property and close down the equestrian centre permanently. “We moved in the year 2000 as we ran out of space on the previous 22-acre site at 200th Street,” Thunderbird president and tournament director Jane Tidball said, adding, “The hardest part of leaving the old 200th Street site was leaving the Keg Steakhouse & Bar behind, which used to be attached to Thunderbird’s indoor arena. It was always a highlight to

the shows in the old location to finish off the day with a Keg experience.” The old Keg overlooked the indoor arena at the original show park. Diners would dine on steaks, and watch as riders practised or competed below. The building got a wild send off in 1998, as the arena, tack shop, and restaurant were being demolished. A fire broke out that sent flames leaping into the air. Fortunately, all that went up in smoke was an empty shell. The current facility at 24550 72nd Ave. covers 82 acres, with a maximum capacity of 900 horse stalls. “We have miles of riding trails at the new facility in addition to spectator amenities and food services,” Tidball said. For 40 years now, Tidball noted, Thunderbird has grown to become one of North America’s premier show facilities. “We are a family owned and operated business dedicated to providing unsurpassed quality, excellent service, and the most memorable equestrian experience for our guests whether they are sponsors, exhibitors, spectators, or officials,” she added. “From pony rides to Olympic-calibre competition, Thunderbird Show Park is committed to every level of competition.” Langley Advance files

Youthful equine enthusiasm is encouraged by access to one of North America’s preeminent equestrian facilities at Thunderbird Show Park.

Thunderbird treats customers like ‘guests in our own home’ …continued from page A18 “We are quite humbled by that,” said Tidball, who noted that it is also important that the centre be accessible to everyone. “We have our roots in the restaurant business and know that customer service is so important. One of our goals here is to treat our customers like guests in our own home.” The rolling landscape of Langley’s rural areas, particularly to the south and northeast, makes it a perfect spot for Thunderbird and other such equestrian centres. “It’s the appeal of the geography and the layout,” Coughlin said. “The horse community is thriving in Langley and values the extensive trails and parks made available to them by Langley Township.” Numbers provided by HCBC show that 1,732 of its members live in the Township of Langley, home to roughly 5,000 horses and 936 equine specific businesses, operations, and farms. According to the Township, a total of 427 farms in Langley have produced more than 3,858 horses and ponies, representing 7.2 per cent of the provincial total. As well, Langley has four equine specific veterinary clinics, B.C.’s only neonatal equine clinic, nine feed and tack stores, and several breeding farms and commercial boarding training and show facilities. The community is also home to numerous private and public equine facilities such as the Milner Downs Equestrian Centre and Campbell Valley Regional Park, as well as Pacific Riding For Developing Abilities along with the Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Association, two facilities

Show jumping is easy to understand. The horse and rider must complete a course of 12 to 20 obstacles. If the horse refuses an obstacle, knocks down any portion of it, falls, or exceeds the time allowed to complete the course, the team is assessed penalty points, called faults. The rider is responsible for ensuring that the obstacles are completed in the right order and that the horse arrives at each of them with enough room and angle to successfully clear them. Riders must also keep an eye on the clock, and make strategic decisions on the track they take to each obstacle with time in mind. As a sport where the team is comprised of two individual athletes who are unable to use language to communicate, it’s also one of the few sports where men and women compete as equals, and competitors range in age from 16 to 65 years. The horses are also diverse. There are many breeds and bloodlines represented in grand prix competition. From horses and riders to courses, each is unique. The course designer alters each course to best suit the level of competition. Heights and widths of jumps, along with colour and arrangement, are meant to present challenges to each team. They demand timing, judgment, jump-

ing ability and confidence, often starting with one or two simple fences as an introduction and then building to more complex efforts. Riders prepare for each course by taking an opportunity to preview it on foot, either alone or with their coach. Walking from one obstacle to the next, they look for the best tracks, count how many strides they expect their horse will take between close-set jumps, and make note of any obstacles that could be spooky for their horses, like open water, bushes or odd shadows. With the preparation complete, it’s all about the ride. Each competitor enters the ring, salutes the sponsor, and then waits for the tone that signals the countdown to their round. Once they pass the start timer, the goal is to complete the course under the time allowed without knocking down any obstacles. A dropped rail results in four faults and time faults are assessed by one-quarter of a fault for each second over the time allowed. Refusals also add time faults. If the horse and rider complete the course with no faults, they move into the second round – a jump off. The jump off course is usually a shortened version of the course they just completed and the time allowed is shorter. This time, riders compete against one another for a no fault round with the fastest time. Once the round is over and a winner emerges, ribbons and trophies are awarded and the top finishers in the class take a victory gallop around the ring.

Family Day

Festival returns for third year

Walnut Grove merchants are welcoming the community and offering a helping hand. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The spots are filling up for the vendors and participants at the third annual Walnut Grove Family Day Festival, which will be held this June. “There’s a few spots left,” said Laurie Daschuk of the Walnut Grove Business Association. The association has extended the early bird special rate into May for those who want to buy a spot. The festival is an opportunity for businesses to get a booth amid a family event that saw 5,000 visitors last year, an increase over between 2-3,000 people who stopped by in 2012. However, the main goal for most of the exhibitors is not to simply sell

their products, but to interact with the community. Many of last year’s booths were set up to allow people to play games or to hand out popsicles. “It’s just kind of about having fun,” Daschuk said. The festival will boast a petting zoo, pony rides, a bouncy castle and hot air balloon rides, a dress up photo booth, and face painting. There will also be live entertainment for the young ones, headed up by veteran Canadian children’s singer Charlotte Diamond. All the money raised by the festival will stay in the community to help children and families in need. Through the Langley School District Foundation, the festival organizers identify families in need. Past projects have included paying for car repairs, buying a computer for an autistic child, and purchasing groceries. It can be anything that helps out a child or family from the Walnut Grove area, said Daschuk.

The organizers are hoping to raise more this year. The Township has been supportive of the efforts to get the festival going, as have a large number of local businesses which have acted as sponsors, she said.

Rams duo invited to Lions rookie camp

Running back Nathan Lund and offensive lineman Anthony Daly will be looking to turn Lions brass’s heads in Kamloops May 26-30.

A pair of Langley Rams will soon get a taste of pro football, close to home. The BC Lions have added Rams running back Nathan Lund and offensive lineman Anthony Daley to their list of rookie camp invitees on Wednesday. The Lions rookie camp runs May 26-30 in Kamloops. Lund turns 19 this week, making him one of the youngest players ever invited to a Lions rookie camp. Lund was a high school star for the Centennial Centaurs and drew interest from several NCAA Div 1 schools, but he opted to

stay close to home and joined the Rams’ program last season. Lund turned heads with his athletic ability at the recent Lions junior evaluation camp, making enough of an impression on the Lions coaching staff to earn an invite to rookie camp. He has been informed by the Lions that although it is not 100 per cent ruled out, he should not expect an invite to main camp because of his age and inexperience. The purpose of the rookie camp invite was to give Lund a taste of what a pro camp is all about. Lund excelled in his first year with the Rams, helping them to their third straight trip to the Cullen Cup championship game. He led the conference with an average of 10.6 yards a carry, rushing 66 times during the regular season and amassing 699 yards and seven touchdowns.

Running back Nathan Lund rushed the ball 66 times, amassing 699 yards and seven touchdowns with the Langley Rams during the 2013 season. Lund has been invited to the BC Lions rookie camp in Kamloops.

return. He also carried 10 kickoffs back for 316 yards and had an 80 yard return for a touchdown. Daley, 20, joined the Rams in 2012 out of Winnipeg’s J.H. Bruns Collegiate, and was selected as the BC Football Conference’s Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman, and to the CJFL All Canadian team in his rookie season. He repeated as the BCFC’s Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman and CJFL All Canadian in 2013. The 6’3” 279-pound centre was added to the Lions practice roster as a territorial exempt junior in July of 2013, and practised with the Leos while also suiting up for the Rams last season. Daley has two years of junior football eligibility remaining. Meanwhile, two Rams alumni are in the CFL news. The Toronto Argonauts have drafted Surrey native and former Langley Rams player Jas Dhillon in the third round (21st overall) out of UBC. Dhillon, 25, played for the Rams in South Surrey from 2007 to ’09 and then moved on to play for the University of Regina Rams in 2010. He came back to play for the Rams in 2011 before returning to the CIS with the UBC

Thunderbirds program in 2012. The 6’3” 290 pound graduate of North Delta’s Sands Secondary played defensive line for the junior Rams and at the U of R, but was converted to the offensive line at UBC, where he went on to earn a spot on the 2013 Canada West All Star Team and was drafted by the Argos as an offensive lineman. As well, the Montreal Alouettes selected former Rams kicker Nick Boyd in the fifth round (43rd overall) out of the University of Manitoba. Boyd, 25, was second in Canada West in punting last season with a 42-yard average while hitting nine of his 13 field goal attempts. The graduate of Seycove Secondary in North Vancouver played for the Rams in South Surrey in 2009 and ’10 prior to joining the Manitoba Bisons program in 2011. The Rams kick off the 2014 season with the club’s annual spring camp, May 23-25 at McLeod Stadium. Main camp starts on July 2, and the Rams’ 2014 home (and season) opener is Saturday, July 26, when they host the VI Raiders in a rematch of last year’s Cullen Cup BCFC championship game. Kickoff is 4 p.m.
