What’s with all the moustaches? Banquet on Aug. 20, dozens of local firefighters gathered to celebrate the recipients of four regional awards: attendance; fire prevention; fire training; and an all-around points award. Much to everyone’s surprise, a few regional leaders in the Mutual Aid donned moustaches to announce their support and encourage participation among the rest of the attendees present and their fellow firefighters. When asked about why firefighters might want to participate and support this event, Al Armstrong, Councillor and Fire Commissioner for North Dundas replied, “Firefighters are without a doubt some of the most community-minded individuals. There are thousands of dedicated volunteers working with service groups and other organizations, but firefighters are the only ones putting their lives on the line for their neighbours.� Continued on page 3

Lightweight home construction

Recently the NFPA (National Fire protection Association) has raised concern with lightweight floor construction in residential homes and firefighter safety. The main concern is with the use of prefabricated wood joists; often referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;IJoistsâ&#x20AC;?, in place of standard solid wood joists. These joists are very commonly used in all new home construction. The NFPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claims have raised the attention of the APA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Engineered Wood Association which is a trade association for the engineered wood industry. The NFPA has expressed this concern because I-Joists do not perform as well as solid wood joists when exposed to fire. Being constructed of lighter material and often with more surface area, the I-Joist will burn more rapidly than a solid wood joist. Due to a more rapid burn and less base material, the structural capacity of the IJoist is compromised at a faster rate than the solid wood joist, resulting in an earlier failure rate. The main area of concern is with fires that start in unfinished basements that result in a rapid floor collapse. The NFPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claims have been substantiated by tests performed by the National Research Council of Canada which proved that exposed I-Joist floors fail between five and eight minutes as compared to an average of 12 minutes for solid wood joists. To be fair, in these tests it was found that the toxic smoke would have made survival by an occupant impossible prior to collapse. The toxic smoke however is not a threat to a firefighter wearing a SCBA, a floor collapse is. The APA has countered these claims with studies of their own, in a report released in November 2007 they came up with the fol-

lowing findings; when a standard lightweight floor assembly, covered with one layer of 5/8â&#x20AC;? thick gypsum wallboard was exposed to fire, failure did not occur until after 32 minutes as compared to between eight and 12 minutes for an exposed solid wood joist floor. This report is not a fair comparison, gypsum board is a standard material used for construction fireproofing, by adding this factor to one system and not the other gives the lightweight floor assembly an unfair advantage. It also does not reflect the common reality that a large number of basements remain unfinished without gypsum ceilings. The NFPA is not advocating that prefabricated wood joists are removed from use, as the APAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tests have shown; if they are properly protected they can perform very well. Prefabricated joists offer designers and homeowners great advantages to span greater distances and save on construction costs. The concern is with the way they are being used without adequately informing the homeowner about the risks associated with these products. Floor collapses in lightweight construction buildings are becoming more commonplace in house fires and pose a great threat to firefighters. Some municipalities in the United States have resorted to a placard system for buildings that use lightweight construction, similar to the hazardous material placards used on vehicles transporting dangerous goods. It seems to me that a good fire sprinkler system could solve many of these problems, construction costs can remain low and adequate protection is increased. Unfortunately there does not yet seem to be the political resolve to push this solution.

Infrastructure Continued from the front Township of Russell, Township of Alfred and Plantagenet, Village of Casselman, Township of East Hawkesbury, Township of North Glengarry, The Nation Municipality, Town of Hawkesbury could all be eligible to receive up to a potential $60,000 of the grant. Crack confirmed to The Villager that the $60,000 is to cover municipal administrative costs that may encounter when trying to meet the criteria for the funding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is also to help act as a platform to support communication

between other Ontario municipalities.â&#x20AC;? St.Pierre wanted to know if any these funds would be retroactive, as Russell Township has already shown intuitive through recent strategic planning, but when The Villager asked Crack, he said â&#x20AC;&#x153;more than likely not.â&#x20AC;? When asked why health and safety items were the top priorities and what of those would be considered as infrastructure, Crack gave the examples of police and fire protection, water and roads and bridges. Currently Russell Township is working on and paying for the St.Jacques bridge repair in Embrun.

St-Amour asked how this will fall into work already completed and agreed that â&#x20AC;&#x153;The standardization of municipal infrastructure management plans is a positive initiative from the government of Ontario. This exercise will assist municipalities in outlining their priorities and needs and will become a vital evaluation tool.â&#x20AC;? Crack also listed some facts regarding McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continued effort to partner with the smaller municipalities which include that since 2003 the McGuinty government has invested $13 billion to help municipalities modernize and expand transit, repair and upgrade roads and bridges,

improve water and wastewater treatment, and revitalize community infrastructure; that there is an online guide and toolkit to help municipalities prepare their asset management plan, which if requesting grant monies, will be due by Oct 22. According to a statement from the Liberal MPPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, the plan will ultimately help the â&#x20AC;&#x153;municipalities make the best possible decisions about building, operating, maintaining, renewing and replacing infrastructure over the long-term.â&#x20AC;? This includes demonstrating how a proposed project fits within a detailed asset management plan.

Locals help judge new dairy award Pamela Pearson Villager Staff Built up over 30 years, the expertise of South Nation Conservation General Manager, Dennis O’Grady, and Russell dairy farmer and Dairy Farmers of Canada Vice-president Ron Versteeg, were recently called upon to help judge a national agricultural sustainability competition. Sponsored by Lely Canada and hosted by Dairy Farmers of Canada, the Dairy Farm Sustainability Award was introduced to recognize farms with innovative practices that go beyond industry standards and that help reduce their environmental footprint. While the award is new, sustainable dairy practices have been passed on by generations of farmers, DFC noted. O’Grady and Versteeg joined seven other Canadians, with top credentials in agricultural and environmental fields, to pick four finalists and an ultimate winner of the inaugural award. The award was presented at the 2012 DFC Annual General Meeting, hosted by the Dairy Farmers of Newfoundland and Labrador, on July 18. A total of 14 nominations for the award were evaluated on the basis of environmental sustainability, financial

viability, social benefits and transferability of practices to other farms. O’Grady stated that “There are certainly good environmental approaches being used by many farmers across the land and heightened awareness of the importance of protecting the environment.” continuing “The competition is in line with practices SNC has fostered in Eastern Ontario for the past 15 years primarily through our Clean Water Program,” he said. “During that time, we’ve developed a close working relationship with the many farmers in the watershed who’ve taken part in the funding program.” Ferme M. Grenier et fils, in Quebec’s Eastern Townships was the winner with a prize trophy and $2,000. The finalists included Charles Hill and Son from Truro, Nova Scotia; Lakeside Dairy in Legal, Alberta; and Sunholm Farms in Huron County, Ontario. Each finalist received a trophy and $1,000 O’Grady added that it was gratifying to be asked to participate by a major national farm organization because it suggested the organization recognizes SNC’s ongoing efforts to work closely with the farming community in promoting stewardship and sustainability.


The other half of the proceeds will be directed to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation — to support critical research in connection with the Ottawa Hospital’s da Vinci robotics program.

Continued from the front Armstrong continued, “It makes sense that prostate cancer would be a precious cause for firefighters, as the bulk of firefighters are male, and those who are female, likely have a spouse, brother, father, or friend that could benefit from increased awareness or fundraising efforts.” Always nice to know: funds raised will stay in our region. A portion of the funds will support the WDMH Foundation Cancer Fund.

EDITORIAL Another lock out. Really? Well, sports fans, it is the most interesting time of the year: Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) season! Millionaires and billionaires battle on the tiled boardroom floors about how to split up the billions of dollars. Even if you say that in a sports announcer’s voice it doesn’t make it any better. In just the last couple of years both the NFL and NBA have had lockouts and the boys in the NHL might be heading for one too. The NFL is playing its pre-season with replacement officials as their regular officiating crews have walked off the job in a labour dispute and as of last week the NHL owners submitted an offer to the NHL Players Association (NHLPA), which, was later countered. Both sides agree they need to help struggling teams. Thankfully they both realize that! Could you imagine a place like Phoenix, excuse me, Glendale, not having a hockey team? That would be horrible, no hockey in the desert - that doesn’t seem right. The problem is who should pay to help poor teams. The NHL, in their proposal, asked the players to do so by reducing their share of hockey-related revenue from 57 to 43 per cent, their salaries by 24 per cent, limit contract lengths to five years maximum and restrict players from unrestricted free agency (UFA) until their 10th season. Surprisingly the players didn’t jump at that fantastic opportunity to make less money, have fewer guarantees and not be in control of their fate. Really? So then the players came back with their offer. They kept the salary cap, something that was rumoured to be removed, planned to reduce their revenue sharing if it went to struggling teams and no changes to contract rules, i.e., no five-year limit and no 10th year until UFA. Their proposal also was a three-year plan that essentially could be scrapped after three years if it was completely unacceptable to the owners. Well that didn’t fly either…really? Turns out the owners and the NHLPA are still far apart (as per the insight of wise commissioner Gary Bettman). *Fun Fact: in the meantime, Philadelphia owner Ed Snider, one of the leaders in talks, signed a player, Wayne Simmons, to a six-year contract extension. Kind of contradictory don’t you think? Let’s not even get in to Ryan Suter and Zach Parise’s 13-year deals. It’s really an exercise in futility. So while the two sides bicker, fans are left with the potential of another lockout. Eight years ago a full season was lost. Both sides need to realize that if they lock out again there may not be billions next time around. It took time for fans to return and while Canadians may be more forgiving, those folks in non-traditional markets might not be. And someone else who may not be too happy is NBC, who agreed to make the NHL the centre of their sports coverage in the U.S. for the next 10 years. Not having that content won’t be an issue for them, right? They’ll still want to give the NHL money, right? With that being said, if there’s no NHL and you need a hockey fix there are many local junior teams to go out and see live. Oh and you don’t have to choose which of your children to bring or which arm to donate if you’d like to purchase something at the concessions. It looks as if there really can be a winner in CBA season. Darren Matte

As easy as one, two, tree If you can’t beat ‘em, you don’t necessarily join ‘em… you find away around ‘em. That’s what South Nation Conservation has decided to do when it comes to replenishing the rapidly eroding tree cover in its watershed, which includes the Castor River and streams that feed into it. We’ve discussed the tree decimation crisis in this space before… and it is a crisis. Throughout the 4,000 square-km watershed, swaths of trees are being cleared to make way for agricultural and residential development. In the recent past, SNC officials and volunteers have discussed ways to slow down the clear cutting. But it’s virtually impossible. As they say, you can’t stand in the way of progress because you might get run over. And to tell the truth, most observers including myself don’t want to block farmers from making hay when the sun shines as in turning idle land into production of more crops, particularly corn, when the demand is there and the price is higher than ever. And let’s not forget that much of this “new farmland” has served that purpose in the past. As for development, when you’re on the doorstep of the National Capital, it’s going to happen. The

approach should be – and is – to manage it in the most efficient way possible. So what to do? Why not replace the lost trees and add some more to the inventory, says SNC, which is about to launch a campaign with the tag line “On your marks, get set… grow!” Or, how about this for another slogan: “If a tree falls in the woods, plant 100,000”. Catchy, eh? With that in mind, SNC is preparing the “100,000 Tree Challenge”. It’s inviting 13 member municipalities spanning the region from Prescott north east to Hawkesbury - including Russell Township and parts of rural Ottawa - to plant that many trees over the next 10 years for a total of 1.3 million trees. The idea came from Clarence-Rockland, which announced in April it intends to do just that… plant 100,000 trees in the next decade on municipal properties. SNC general manager Dennis O’Grady said he has received expressions of interest from Russell and other municipalities about the Challenge and expects participation from most of them. The cost is minimal while the benefits are substantial, SNC staff told members of its communications committee during a

meeting last week. Trees Ontario which is dedicated to re-greening the province offers support and subsidies to projects such as the Challenge. Among benefits are beautification of marginal lands, landfills and industrial sites; noise and dust barriers; shade and recreational opportunities, enhanced habitat, erosion control, and water quality improvement; and future revenue from harvesting operations. Communications committee member our own Cindy Saucier observed that many who doubted the value of trees probably had an awakening this June and July during deep drought conditions across Eastern Ontario. Only the shade provided by mature trees kept some grass and plants from being burned to a crisp. While she welcomed the campaign, Cindy emphasized the authority should still concentrate on protecting trees already in place with increased education programs about their value. Committee member Ian Mitchell from Vankleek Hill way noted that introduction of hardy species will help replace trees lost to invaders such as the emerald ash borer. In his own case, several of his ash trees have fallen victim to the relentless insect. SNC has a planting pro-

gram in place which has distributed more than 570,000 trees across the region since 2006. A check of the distribution figures shows the uptake in some municipalities has been much more extensive than in others. Forestry technician Michael Petryk explained to the committee that by late this fall the 100,000 Tree Challenge should be in full swing with advertising and flyers alerting residents and municipalities to the project. The approach will be to not blame anyone for the decrease in tree cover the region has been experiencing but to emphasize the solution and the legacy factor of planting vast numbers of new trees. Petryk said he wants to improve visibility of the tree planting program, increase uptake, promote professional consulting and planting services offered by SNC, and create new industry and municipal partnerships. Wouldn’t the North Russell quarry site now being promoted as a recycling centre and landfill fit nicely into such a project? Can we somehow persuade Taggart Miller in cooperation with SNC and the township to plant trees there rather than garbage?

Painted Ladies strut their stuff

RUSSELL – Not to be confused with the Monarch or the Red Admiral butterfly, the Painted Lady has been flitting about in swarm-like numbers this month - and making an impact on the grills and windshields of vehicles travelling rural roads. Thanks to optimal conditions in south Texas over the winter, an extra-large population of Painted Ladies arrived in Ontario at the beginning of the summer, says Glenn Richardson, Toronto Entomologists

Association president, who confirmed the insect’s identity in an email exchange with The Villager. The species has since enjoyed evident success reproducing on local burdock and thistle plants, so much so they’ve been massing with older adults for a return migration south - a trip this butterfly only makes when its numbers are high, according to Robinson. “Another year, you might not see that,” he told The Villager.

A Cloud grows within WDMH Nelson Zandbergen Villager Staff CHESTERVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Think of the Internet â&#x20AC;&#x153;cloud,â&#x20AC;? and online services like Dropbox, Google Docs, Gmail, Pandora, YouTube, Flickr, Evernote and numerous others immediately spring to mind. Better add Winchester District Memorial Hospital to that list, though. Or more specifically, add the specialized, web-based programs uniquely hosted on WDMHâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s servers, which have been remotely accessed online by a growing number of medical practitioners across Ontario and Canada since 2009. The Champlain Local Health Integration Network (CLHIN) has a fancy name for the suite of applications emanating from the hardware exclusively located at WDMH: Technology Collaboration Space (TCS). Through word of mouth, 3,000 health care profession-

als are now using the CLHINâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service to securely communicate, consult and coordinate services on behalf of patients. The process saves time and often avoids trips to visit a specialist in person, CLHIN Chief Information Officer Glenn Alexander told the regional health authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aug. 8 meeting at the Chesterville Legion. The TCS, Alexander confirmed for The Villager, is really a take-off on the popular Internet cloud concept now ubiquitous among desktop computer and smartphone users these days â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but tailored for healthcare providers. The secure system includes, for example, a voice and video application â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lync â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he compares to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Skype on steroids,â&#x20AC;? and an â&#x20AC;&#x153;e-consultation networkâ&#x20AC;? that allows local doctorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offices to correspond with specialists in such fields as dermatology and endocrinology. Other scheduling tools are accessible by the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Care Access

Centre, including a new online resource for booking transportation vans operated by more than two-dozen local agencies, and foot clinics for kidney patients. Alexander, formerly employed by IBM before he joined the CLHIN, said he came up with the TCS idea during the H1N1 flu pandemic of 2007. Critical care doctors across Ontario complained of not being able to take part in conference calls with the latest information coming out of Manitoba. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we recommended to them, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set up a space for you where you can upload videos, you can upload audio from the recorded telephone calls â&#x20AC;Ś And you can write up case histories and make them available to anyone [registered] who can log on, in this secure environment that was created.â&#x20AC;? Doctors from across Canada made entries during the outbreak, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, that was all it took, create the site, get the clinicians using it, and the usage blossomed. By the end of the fiscal year, we had 1,000 users on board.â&#x20AC;? The user base swelled to over 2,000 over the following

High levels of algae in waterways Cindy Saucier Special to the Villager A recent survey of lakes across Canada show high levels of microcystin, found in certain types of blue-green algae and poses threats to both wildlife and humans. Public Health authorities have recently issued some health warnings for Ontario Lakes, such as Sturgeon and Ramsey Lake. According to the MOE, algai blooms are a growing problem in Ontario Lakes. Livestock can be affected when water is ingested. The reason for this algae growth is high levels of phosphorous. Professor David Schindler, a water expert from the University of Alberta, Â has been studying these high levels and points out that â&#x20AC;&#x153;we are fertilizing our lakesâ&#x20AC;?. Conventional agricultural and home gardening account for large amounts of chemical fertilizer use. Fertilizer runoff occurs and runoff by rain water

which ends up in our rivers, streams, and lakes. Lack of tree cover or riparian coverage at shorelines also increases algae growth. High levels of algae are dangerous for other plant life in the lakes. The MOE and other environmental authorities have recommended limiting and/or putting a halt to the use of chemical fertilizers. Organic farming uses natural fertilizers such as manure and compost to promote soil and plant health. Using phosphate-free detergents, soaps, and body products is another way to reduce the amount of phosphates entering water bodies. Also, pay attention to cleaning products. What goes down the drain comes back up to haunt us. Toxic cleaning products, fabric softeners, dyes, perfumes and all the chemicals in these products affect water quality. Water is a very important life supporting element that

humans and wildlife cannot live without. If we humans are causing this, we need to start thinking more about how our actions affect and pollute the environment around us. Another way we can get involved is â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanupâ&#x20AC;? which runs from Sept., 15 to Sept. 23. Adopt a local shoreline and organize a cleanup. Visit the World Wildlife Fund website and join the Water Brothers Alex and Tyler Mifflin. Never throw anything into a waterway. An example of this, is the plight of the Great Blue Heron in Ottawa with a plastic ring caught on its beak and it cannot fish. Volunteers have been trying to capture the bird but without success so far. Too bad Kathy Nehei is no longer with us. We can all do our part to protect our most precious resource and all that lives around waterways.

18 months, with the addition of scheduling other capabilities useful for a variety of service providers. Clinical administrative staff have since latched onto the system as well, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are, in fact, well positioned to extend it farther.â&#x20AC;? Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3,000-plus users represent 500 organizations, including almost all of the entities funded by the CLHIN â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at 211. The system has won a national technology architectural award, he proudly noted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and all headquartered here in Winchester, which is kind of the cool part.â&#x20AC;? And while profit is the end goal of almost every new cloud-based startup in the tech world, the CLHIN has no intention of trying to â&#x20AC;&#x153;monetizeâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to use a trendy buzzword from that industry â&#x20AC;&#x201D; its growing endeavour. Quite the opposite, Alexander explained to The Villager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re offering it free of charge. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the attraction.â&#x20AC;? The blank-slate construction project underway at WDMH in 2007 made it a natural place to set up the new cloud service, along with willing partners in Trudy Reid, former CEO at the institution, and Sean Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, Chief Technology Officer at WDMH, to help make it happen, he said. Only two people today oversee the system based on Microsoftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sharepoint platform. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a very well architected system. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had downtime in the four years itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been up.â&#x20AC;?

Local team captures international honours at Snoopy Tournament

Embrun’s Ray St. Pierre recently returned from Santa Rosa, California, where he and his team, the Ottawa Old Smoothies, won the Over 60-year-old open group B division at the 37th Annual Snoopy Senior World Hockey Tournament held July 7-15. The tournament was started in 1975 by Peanuts creator Charles Schultz who built the Redwood Empire Arena, where the tournament is held each year. The Ottawa Old Smoothies, began with a 3-1 win over a team from Nanaimo, British Columbia, followed by a 5-2 win over the Connecticut Olde Crabs and finally a 4-3 victory over the Anchorage 49’ers to capture the championship. Above left, the team stands beside the Charlie Brown statue in front of the arena with their championship trophy after their final game.

Russell Soccer Club to host 60 teams

Adam Rozon, Casselman, see here earlier this season after a win at Mohawk International Raceway in Akwesasne took the lead early in the 20-lap Tracy Wheeler Storm Realty Sportsman feature on Aug. 19 at the Cornwall Motor Speedway. Rozon continued to lead, but points leader Chris Herbison made his way up through the pack and into second. Rozon still had a large lead on Herbison until the caution came out with just six laps to go. On the restart, Herbison took the outside lane and moved into the fron as Rozon slipped. Herbison took the win as Rozon was forced to settle for fourth. Photo courtesy

Two more Raiders teams look to bring home titles

RUSSELL— The Russell Raiders Soccer Club already has one championship to celebrate after the OT8 team clinched their league last week. With the season almost over, two more teams have a shot at their titles as the Men’s Rec. squad, after a win this past week, will need a win and some help this week to get theirs, while the WR2 remain atop their standings after a draw last week and control their own destiny with two games remaining. Men’s Rec The Russell Raiders Men’s Rec. crew pushed their winning streak to six games, on Aug. 14, by beating the Nepean Hotspurs 2-0, at the Russell Community and Sports Centre. Andrew Young added to his team lead with his fifth goal of the season and David Tessier picked up the other. Glenden Bakker kept his fifth clean sheet of the campaign, in the Raiders net. With one game left, last night Aug. 21 in Ottawa against the Fusion, the Raiders still had a shot at top spot with their record of 8W-3T-2L and 27 points. They trailed the Sunset Lakers by just two points, so they needed a win and a Lakers loss to capture the championship. OT8 The winning ways continued for the OT8 Raiders who have already clinched their league title and promotion to OT7 next season. Nonetheless, they came away with another 1-0 victory on Aug. 17 in Perth against Perth Osprey. The win stretched their winning streak to seven games. Libo Habets scored his third goal of the season and Rob Bissonnette kept his sixth clean sheet. The Raiders have one more game before they are officially named champions, Aug. 24 in Ottawa against Lusitania. They will look to finish the season unbeaten as they cur-

rently sit at 12-1-0, but Lusitania is the secondplaced team and will be playing to hang on to their promotion spot. WR2 The WR2 Raiders continued to add points to their season total with a draw on Aug. 16 against the Golden Seals in Ottawa. Stephanie Olney scored the only goal for the Raiders as this one finished 1-1. The Raiders continue to lead the standings with a record of 9-1-3 and 28 points. However, there are multiple teams within striking distance as Cumberland is just two back in second and OSU three back in third, with just two games remaining on the schedule for all teams. The Raiders can inch closer to the league title with a win on Aug. 23 when they are home to West Ottawa, at the Russell Community and Sport Centre; kickoff is at 7 p.m. OT3 The Raiders OT3 squad came away with a 1-1 draw on Aug. 17 when they hit the pitch against OSU at the Russell Community and Sports Centre. Stephan Carignan scored his first goal of the season for the Raiders who now sit seventh in the standings with a record of 4-4-3 and 16 points. The Raiders have four more games this season beginning with one on Aug. 24, in Ottawa, against the Ottawa Royals. MR3 Luc Geerts was the only Raider to find the net in the Russell MR3’s 3-1 loss against AC Fiorentina on Aug. 15 in Ottawa. The Raiders are stuck in the middle of the pack in 10th spot with a record of 4-3-6 and 15 points. They have two games to go on the season, beginning with a tilt tonight, Aug. 22, at the Russell Community and Sports Centre against Rockers United; kickoff is set for 8:30 p.m.

Russell Challenger first baseman Ryan Tutton of Morewood, is seen here awaiting the throw to put out a member of the Russell Fire Department and the Paardeberg Unit of the 1st Canadian Army Veterans (C.A.V.) Motorcycle Unit team at the Aug 18 game, held in Russell. The Challengers won this PJ Pearson photos year by a land slide of 32-2.
