Ted Swendson Memorial Sporting Days - August 25-26, 2018

  • Township Rd 274 AB, T4C Canada (map)

High Country Carriage Driving Club is pleased to present a fun weekend showcasing driving skills and a wide variety of turnouts in memory of Ted Swendson – a founding member of our club and a great supporter of all the traditions in driving.  We welcome all safe turnouts at this event both modern and traditional.  Come and have fun driving at the Bar U National Historic Site where we can enjoy the ambiance of days gone by.  There will be something for everyone - a parade through the park, demonstration of your driving skills,  a variety of driving games!

We need volunteers to help make this event go - below please find a list of positions that need filling.  For most positions, the only requirement is the desire to be around horse drawn vehicles - you will be given instruction as to your tasks.

Also below is the prize list with details and the registration form.  Dinner on Saturday night will be available for all prepaid participants and registered volunteers (HCCDC will buy volunteer dinners!).

Come on out and help us celebrate the memory of Ted and enjoy our driving activities!
