Movember Man Up Party!

November can get dark, cold and you can get caught up waiting and just dreaming of ski season being in full swing. While you’re waiting to hit the slopes there are some important and fun things going on in November. What are we talking about? Well, it started in Australia, under their November summer sun. It’s called Movember and it was started to raise awarness about men’s health and prostate cancer. There’s a high chance of surviving this cancer if it’s caught early enough. Trouble is, a lot of men opt out of going to the doctor for ‘just a check up’.

The Georgetown Inn is throwing a bash in support of men’s health. In fact, all the Waymarker Men shaved their faces and volunteered to grow a moustache in support of this great cause!

Steam Whistle will be donating a dollar for every pint sold. Other Canmore locals have donated Heli Tours, Dog Sled Tours and other Gift Certificates to be won. Canmore Cabs has donated Free Taxi Rides home.

Head down to The Georgetown Inn Movember 30th to chat about moustaches, mens health and the Grey Cup game with other Mo Brothers like yourself.

The Triple Crown of Canmore :: Launch Party! – what it’s all about

The Georgetown Inn would like to invite you to join them this Sunday, June 17, 2012 at 2PM for the great kick-off to the hiking season! This is a wonderful way to spend time with your father on Father’s Day. We will have complimentary live music from Cabot’s Crossing, Guest Speakers and Beer and Burger specials!

If you’re feeling really ambitious you can get started on your hikes that morning or afternoon! And remember there is no time limit on completing the 3 hikes. If you’re a hardcore hiking enthusiast you can do all three in one day (like my crazy little brothers did) or if you like to stop and smell the flowers you can enjoy the hikes at a slower pace throughout the summer.

The Triple Crown is all about having an intrinsically rewarding experience. Waymarker CEO, Lockey Craig is quoted saying, “It’s about having a good sleep, a good adventure and a good meal. Everyone deserves it! That’s how my mother took care of me and my two brothers and that’s how I want to take care of my guests, which is why we started The Triple Crown.”

So make sure you bring your dad’s out and get some tips on how to truly enjoy the beautiful rocky mountains that are right in our backyard. I know that’s where I’ll be!
