My Ward 14 Communities BBQ has been around for seven years (almost as many as the number of my columns that begin with the word "Howdy"), and I have some important news.

For those who are unfamiliar, my BBQ is about drawing attention to the hard working community associations in Ward 14. I gather as many people as I can in one place to meet with their community association reps. I also gather as much money as I can from sponsors to buy everyone a membership to their local community association. We have lots of exhibitors, including displays and information for the departments at the City of Calgary. There is also a free lunch for all those who attend!

What is the news then, you ask? Well, for the past seven years I have held the BBQ at Southcentre Mall which, due to boundary changes from the last election, is no longer a part of Ward 14. It is no longer appropriate to hold it there. I have scoured the area to find a suitable location. It must be one that is as accessible to all of the communities within the new boundaries of Ward 14 as possible, and a sufficient size to hold things like fire trucks along with thousands of people.

Unfortunately, I have had no luck, and there is just no more time to adequately prepare without a location. I regret to inform everyone that the BBQ will not be happening this year.

But that just means more time to plan for next year, and I promise that we will be back, stronger than ever, for 2019!

Have a fun Stampede week, and please feel free to contact me any time. The best way to do so is by visiting​.
