MOVIE ON THE BEACH
Movie on the Beach
Due to poor weather last fall this event was cancelled and re-scheduled for Saturday, May 25, 2019. We will be presenting How to Train Your Dragon - The Hidden World.
There are major changes to this event.
Since twilight occurs after 10:00PM we cannot use the inflatable screen with the projector. The start time for this event would be too late.
We will be using a much smaller LED display system more suited for a smaller audience size.
We will offer 2 shows
· 6:30PM We encourage families with young children to attend this show time.
· 9:00PM We ask that families with older children attend this presentation.
· Parking may be limited for the second show time.

Outside Boats and Whirling Disease
Due to the discovery of Whirling Disease in the Bow River, Alberta Fisheries has been conducting an investigation and developing a course of action. The result of this is that several man-made lakes in the Calgary area have been denied or delayed in the receipt of their 2017/2018 fish license. We are fortunate to have been granted our license. Because this investigation is ongoing we are feeling pressure to protect our water and our lake.

We are therefore going to put a temporary moratorium on the use of outside boats (including paddleboards and inflatable paddleboards) in our water and ask fisherman to be careful that all their equipment is clean. This moratorium is temporary and will be lifted as we have better understanding of the Alberta Fisheries investigation and plan.

WHIRLING DISEASE INFORMATION

During the fall of 2016 Whirling Disease was detected and confirmed in Banff national Park. This disease affects salmonid fishes including species of trout, salmon and whitefish. The disease has spread beyond the National Park boundary and is present in the Bow River water basin including the Bow River, Elbow River and related tributaries.

According to a CBC news article:
“The entire Bow River Watershed has been infected with whirling disease, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has declared, prompting new province-wide measures to try to contain the spread.
The disease can cause infected fish - predominantly trout and whitefish - to swim in a whirling pattern and die prematurely.
The agency has also declared the rest of the province a "buffer zone" for the disease.”
The spread of this disease from one body of water to another occurs as a result of wildlife and human activity. The commercial fish industry that hatches and raises trout species for stocking lakes such as ours has been tested by the Province of Alberta and most tested negative for the presence of the disease, including our supplier.

We are advised that the human consumption of fish that may be affected by disease is safe.
