Blue Ocean Does Bullshooters Breakfast 2016

BOIM-BullshootersBreakfast1

I’m going to attempt to recap this year’s Bullshooters Breakfast for you. Please remember that this annual stampede fundraising event is serving up mimosas, margaritas, caesars, beers and shots by 8am…(so, do forgive my memory.)

As sponsors for this year’s event, the Blue Ocean web design and development team created the website for the 2016 Bullshooters Breakfast. It was only right, that as a team we don our cowboy/cowgirl gear and make an appearance. The breakfast was held July 12 at the Telus Convention Centre featuring an amazing spread of flapjacks, eggs, pastries, bacon, sausages, fresh brewed coffee and more.

A silent auction was held raising funds for the Just 4 Kidz Foundation which was created by the Stampede City Progress Club to support children’s charities throughout Calgary. In addition, great live bands were the soundtrack to the entire event, while Calgary’s firefighters and Cowboys ladies welcomed guests and handed out wristbands accordingly.  

Following breakfast, attendees were shuttled to the Cowboys tent with free admission included via party buses where things got wild. Imagine, grown men attempting their best to dance around stripper poles. Clothes stayed on…but just picture it.  It’s not even noon yet!

There the party commenced and it was awesome. That said, Bullshooters Breakfast is an annual Stampede fundraising breakfast with proceeds raised going to support the Just 4 Kidz foundation. Each year it is hosted by the Stampede City Progress club.

Definitely keep an eye out for next year’s event – it’s absolutely worth it!!!

Bowling for FUNds to Support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary & Area

 BOIM-bowl-for-kids-calgary-2016

As proud sponsors of this year’s Bowl for Kids Calgary, we flexed our bowling muscles to raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary and Area. In total, our team raised $1,025 for the volunteer driven organization that pairs children and youth within our community with valuable volunteer mentors. Mentoring is a proven strategy for ensuring resiliency, future orientation and social support for kids and youth.

Named the Blue Ocean Blue Ballaz, our team had shirts made with a logo designed by our graphic designer, D-man and actually won the prize for this year’s “Best Dressed Team” – score! Unfortunately, our bowling game was not on par with our web designing skills and well, none of us had really played 5-pin in a long time.

Despite our lack of strikes and spares, the night was a blast. The second game was coined “Crazy Bowl” with a full list of tricks and tips on how to go through the next 10 frames including bowling on a single leg, bowling with one eye shut, sitting on the lane and pushing the bowling ball with two hands, and bowling backwards. Needless to say, I don’t think I hit a single pin in that second game.

The night also featured a silent auction, several prize draws, door prizes, a 50/50 and a ton of fun. It’s a great way to gather a group of five friends, family members or co-workers and raise funds for children in our community while having an entertaining and amusing evening. It happens every year! So be sure to look out for next year’s event (which happens every June) if you did not get an opportunity to participate in this year’s bowl-a-thon. 

Bowl for Kids Calgary is organized each year by the Stampede City – Canadian Progress Club with proceeds supporting BBBS Calgary. The night was hosted by the awesome folks at Chinook Bowladrome and sponsors included: Big Rock Brewery, Chariot Express, Monarch Music Services, Bolder Graphics, Little Caesars, Servus Credit Union, Oasis Wellness Centre and Spa, Copper Point Resort, Calgary Sun, 660 News, Kiss 95.9, 96.9 Jack FM, SportsNet 960 The Fan, Breakfast Television, and CF Chinook Centre.

Thank you to all who donated to our team and to the cause. We’re totally practicing for next year’s game Laughing
