July 2023 - Thursday Golf, Stampede, Whiskyroni, Pinball, Trivia and Lake Newell Sailing

In this month, which is one of the best times to be in Calgary, I reclaimed my basement and garage, got back to golf with the Thursday group, took in another Stampede, played Wednesday night pinball and hoped on a 19 foot catamaran at Lake Newell.  And of course all the other random stuff that comes in the summer in Canada.

After allowing a friend to stay in my place while I was gone it was time to do a little tidy up and repairs.  Good to help someone out who needed a place, and a great chance to make some updates and repairs on things that a less delicate person helps to point out need attention by using the crap out of them, hahaha!

nice clean fridge

after you defrost it!
That's a lot of build up
No food in the fridge so go for meat with CK
Why do organic bananas come
with so much inorganic waste?
Back in my day the cart guy at the store used
muscles.  Arent we trying to go green??

More going green, flying meat
all the way from Australia at
my local supermarket?

Burnt pots, Thanks A

Toilet didn't work for my first
10 days back, thanks A.

Let's get you on the road!

Then there was the washing machine which looked like it had done enough laundry for 5 families in the months A was staying at my place.  Well no surprise the motor burnt out.  Thanks A!

Off to Canmore to pick up a used unit the same
as the one that's motor died. Smart thinking
to have extra parts.
Super fun to take apart actually
In good shape from a guy who helped me load.
He had picked up a stacking system for free
so $50 for this one was easy. The motor I needed
for the other was $200 for just the part.

Tested and good.  

Brewsters Ranch Kananaskis Golf Course for my first time back with the Thursday group looking forward to a bunch of rounds this summer.   It was a good day with Phil and Tom as my cart buddies.

Just a beautiful course

Tee it up!

Later in the month we shot a round at Tooth of the Dogpound another good course outside of Calgary. Good day with Roger, Martin, Phil and the rest of the of the boys.  Won my first skin too!

Stampede 2023, lots of business development for ADIT and general fun to be had this year.  It just all flowed well this round.  Special thank yous to Bothar, Comco, The Crossing Group and Acero for having fantastic parties/ gathers!

Side story: Running with Holly and some others the first Friday we simply skipped in to the VIP entrance to get in to Wildhorse.  Good to see party crashing alive and well in 2023.

Bothar party with Andrew and 
Adit team.

Finished at Wildhorse
On the grounds mid week for 
fun at the rodeo and wagons

They'll let anybody in!

Wrote a song with this county

And then the grandstand fireworks with an interesting to see new Drone version addition.

Acero Party and the invention
of the "Whiskyroni"!
Wildhorse finish, again...

Nothing like drinking your beer from your cowboy hat.  The sign of a good day!!

Wednesday night pinball and trivia at the Pinbar!  I never miss a Wednesday!

Love "Attack from Mars"

All the Rock n Roll pinball machines on this wall

Kicking ass

Tough to replay this one,
but I did!

And trivia!

Glow in the dark T-shirt!

At the end of the month it was off to Lake Newell, one of the largest man made lakes in Canada, thanks to an invite from Thomas to sail near Brooks Alberta on his 19 foot catamaran, FAST!
