Calling All Ottawa Area Golfers!
August 14th, 2017 at Manderley on the Green golf course will see a golf tournament unfold for a great cause. All proceeds from this event will go to support the Wounded Warriors Canada (WWC) (https://woundedwarriors.ca/) investment in PTSD Service Dogs (https://woundedwarriors.ca/how-we-help/ptsd-service-dog-program/). In 2014 Veterans Affairs Canada announced a study of the efficacy of PTSD Service Dogs and WWC is proud to report that more than 1/3 of the dogs enrolled in the study have been funded by Wounded Warriors Canada. The training of service dogs is a long, intensive and expensive process, taking approximately two full years until certification is complete. Dogs funded by Wounded Warriors Canada are made available to the Veteran or First Responder at no cost. As such, WWC is continually exploring new funding opportunities to deal with a critical shortfall of available service dogs that, in spite of their best efforts and planning, results in a waiting list of approximately two (plus) years. Events such as this golf tournament are critical to raising funds for this much needed program. If you can’t make it on the 14th but would like to support the cause donations can be made online on the WWC website.
Details as follows:
- Tee off 12:00 noon at Manderley On the Green, 5920 Prince of Wales Drive , Ottawa.
- Cost: $95/player (golf, cart, prizes, silent auction & all-you-can-eat hip-of-beef buffet)
- Best ball format (all skill levels welcome)
- Register as a single, twosome, threesome of foursome

Abbotsford International Airshow 2017
Designated Canada’s National Airshow, the annual aviation festival provides spectators an opportunity to watch one of the finest aerobatic performances in the world. People gather from around the globe to look to the skies in awe. Ranked among one of the Top Ten Airshows in the world, the event continues to distinguish itself.
The event will be held on August 11-13, 2017. The Airshow will take place at the Abbotsford International Airport YXX, approximately 40km East of the Port Mann Bridge just off the Trans-Canada Highway.
Highlights include three separate fighter demos by the F-16, CF-18 and FA-18 plus a Heritage Flight appearance of the F-35 JSF (and a RNLAF static display F-35). A NORAD demo is planned involving Canadian CF-18s and USANG F-16s.
Canada 150 has brought a number of aircraft to describe some of the historical arc of Canadian aviation from the Sopwith Pup and SE5a of WW I, P-51, B-25 and TBM warbirds from WW II, Vampire and Sabre jets of the post-war era and a relevant group of current aircraft in RCAF inventory.
The Airshow is happening concurrently with two other aerospace focused events: the ADSE aerospace trade show and the CBAA (Cdn Business Aviation Assn) annual convention, both of which are taking place in the Tradex facility on the field on Thursday and Friday.
