Magic Numbers

Golf is a funny game. Luck plays a big part in it – often it is ‘bad’ luck (“Why did it bounce that way?”) and sometimes it’s good. Ben Hogan is quoted as saying, “If you hit a shot to two-feet, it is skill. If it goes in, it is luck.” But even some rounds

The family that skis together

I’ve heard folks say that the family that skis together stays together. For as long as I can remember we have been a family that skis together. Growing up in fruitvale BC, there was never a shortage of outdoor activities. From hiking to biking to swimming and camping there was always much to do and
I have created a video about my last time in Rossland and desire to go back.

Life at Redstone Before and After

In and around 1954 I lived in Warfield and my friend Al and I would hitchhike to the golf course to caddy. Sometimes we would be dropped at the road to the golf course and walk down. At that time there was a Chinese man who garden and sold his vegetables in Rossland, and Warfield.

Condo construction project and other projects in the area. “Doogie”, as we affectionately called him, was here for the whole summer and, being an avid golfer, played

My home town.

My story is quite simple. I was born in Rossland and grew up there until our parents had the audacity to move to Vancouver; wrenching us along with them. Two months after graduating from school I was back in town working at cominco. I worked the shifts in order to get more skiing done. During
For the last 20 years I have lived in an Iconic place. Rossland BC. You would think that living in a town of 3,900 people would be boring and routine. It’s not, partly because of a rich history, rich amenities and partly the people. Rossland is a small Adventure Town but it’s part of a
