Hello, shameless plug for local charity event this Saturday: Good way to safely get the family out on a weekend and only approx one hour from most of Edmonton.

".... 3rd annual Sledz and Treadz Fundraising Poker Rally that is taking place this February. Last year the family friendly fundraiser and poker rally had over 400 participants and donated all proceeds to Lakedell School. This year the fundraising will go towards Lakedell School, Lakedell Playschool, Falun Elementary School and other community charities including donating to the Wayne Benson benefit for South Pigeon Lake’s Fire Chief who is currently battling a rare cancer.

Kozack says that the event was finalized on Monday Feb.8 after getting all clearances from Alberta Health Services, the Government of Alberta, and local Councils to hold the outdoor lake event.
“We encourage families to come out,” he says that this year there will family door packages and packages for the kids that come out. Kozack says that the rally is a great opportunity to “come out, enjoy our lake, have a good time with your family, practice social distancing,” and more.
“We really want this to become a premiere event for central Alberta if you will, and a family event,” says Kozack.

The poker rally will be on Feb. 27, 2021 this year and registration for the day starts at 9 a.m. with the rally starting at 11 a.m. and last hand called and to be in by 3 p.m.

This year there will also be a 50/50 draw through the parents fundraising committee out of Lakedell School. The online 50/50 has the potential to raise $20,000, which means a potential $10,000 cash payout for the winner.

Participants of the 50/50 can buy a ticket online with no requirement to participate in the poker rally. The online 50/50 went up on Thursday, Feb.11, and the winner will be announced the day of the rally.

Kozack says that the previous rallies have been a success in large part because of the generous communities around the lake.
“It is a very generous community out here. When it is something that everybody believes in and everybody enjoys as far as the rally, and everybody knows the money goes to the school and the money stays in the community, people are very good here.”



I'm sure there would be more on FB under "Pigeon Lake Positive" I think its at Ma-Me-O

only 100 for $100 and 20 for $50 tickets left and only $2250 left to max out..... I didn't pay enough attention obviously should have gone with the 100 for 100 instead of the 20 for 50.

Was fishing on Wabamun on Saturday, there was snow when we went out in the morning but nothing more than puddles when we came back in the evening. What are the snow conditions on Pigeon? Can this rally be done safely with sleds or is this going to be more focused for the ATV and side by side group?

if you could I would greatly appreciate it. I have a young one who would love to go for a boot but it is just not worth risking a sled for a day ride if you know what I mean.

thank you in advance!

I think it should be pretty good, there were still a couple trucks on the ice too.

I've been told they were expecting ~ 300 participants

Enjoy the day with your kid :)

thank you for the intel! I might just see if we can’t get 3 generations out on this ride. The weather looks promising for pops to make an appearance.

It was good. Lots of sleds and lots of UTVs. I'm not sure of the numbers bot there were a chit load of units! Somebody didn't have a good day though. Their side by side burnt up. Not sure what happened. Our group won a couple of door prizes and the BIL won the worst hand!
