Kings Kookout Shelter

KINGS SHELTER construction was started in November of 2020 and we hope to complete the final phases of the project this season.   We are planning a GRAND OPENING of the shelter in January 2021.

The DONORS recognized here helped the EASTMAN SNOPALS construct this shelter with their financial contributions, material donations and work-in-kind.  

We would also like to acknowledge the partnership with the Lac du Bonnet Charitable Foundation that made many of the financial donations possible.

The Eastman SnoPals members are recognized for the countless hours of volunteer time given to complete this project.

Angels In Combat

On behalf of the Angels in Combat, we would like to take the opportunity to thank the following people for all their hard work and participation in the “Eastman SnoPals Inc  & Angel in Combat Poker Derby Fundraiser” for the Beausejour Relay For Life, which was held on February 24th, 2018.

Thank you to the members of Eastman SnoPals Inc who helped make the Poker Derby such a huge success: Rob Tashiro, Fred Senkow,  Don Marion , John Fleming, Al Hope (Agassiz Hut), Wally Sokoliuk, Dave Baleja (Halfway Hut), Dennis Soloway, and Dave Bruderer (Kings Kookout Hut) for volunteering to work at the huts selling the cards and keeping the fires going for the riders to warm up, and for grooming the trail and adding the directional arrows, the weather was perfect and the trails were awesome.

When the Angels in Combat initially approached the Eastman SnoPals to partner with us to hold a Poker Derby as a fundraiser for The Relay For Life; Eastman SnoPals Inc were very gracious in agreeing to donate all funds to Relay For Life.  A very special thank you to Eastman SnoPals for their generosity, $1132.50 will be donated directly to Beausejour Relay For Life.

The Poker Derby started at Watertown in Lac du Bonnet and traveled to Agassiz Hut, Halfway Hut, Seven Sisters Community Center and King’s Kookout Hut. We had 68 registered riders, and 233 hands were sold.

Thank you to all the riders and participants for joining us and Congratulations to the Winners:

1st Place – Laurie Lacroix

2nd Place – Cole Vickery

3rd Place – Gil Gauthier (Gil kindly donated his winnings back to Angels in Combat Fundraiser)

50/50 – Jean Lishchynski

We would also like to thank Watertown Inc., Jay, Emma, Gerry and Ron for rearranging your showroom and allowing us to use your site for registration.

Also thank you to the Seven Sisters Community Club for allowing us to use their site as a card stop.  Special thanks to Marilyn Ruta and Grit McLean for providing the delicious hot lunch for all riders and participants.

We are overwhelmed with the amount of support we have received and look forward to another poker derby next year.

Beausejour Relay For Life will be held on Friday, June 15th, 2018 starting at 6 pm.  All are welcome to attend; more information will be coming in the very near future.

Thank you, Angels In Combat, Relay For Life.
