After months of preparation and training, the Red Deer Senior Rustlers are primed to make their North Central Hockey League debut Saturday night against the Oil Barons in Devon.  Following a 6-2 pre-season win against the Eckville Eagles on Sunday, the Rustlers are set to embark on their inaugural regular season just five months after being accepted into the NCHL.

“It’s hard to believe our season opener is already here,” said Vice President and Assistant Captain Kyle Pess. “It seems like just yesterday we were sitting around just throwing out the idea of starting a Senior AA team, and now we’re days away from kicking our season off in Devon.”

The Rustlers’ first home game will go the following Saturday in Penhold, and Pess said there’s already plenty of buzz surrounding the team’s home opener.

“The support we’ve seen from the community has been incredible,” he said. “There’s been no shortage of support from both sponsors and fans, and we can’t wait to hit the ice in Penhold on October 13 in front of our home crowd.”

A familiar face in the Red Deer hockey community will be behind the bench for the Rustlers on Saturday night, as Scott Odegard has signed on to coach, ending the team’s search for a bench boss.

Following Saturday’s road game in Devon, the Rustlers will play four straight home games on October 13, 20, 27 and November 3.

City of Red Deer Bob Stollings Award winner announced

Each year, The City of Red Deer is proud to celebrate the hard work and dedication of our staff through the annual Employee Recognition Awards. With COVID-19 restrictions in place, how the awards were handed out looked a lot different this year. Awards were personally delivered to each recipient rather than at an evening awards banquet.The awards celebrate long-term service employees and offers special recognition for those who have excelled in innovation, environmental stewardship and exceptional growth.The most anticipated award of the year is the Bob Stollings Memorial Award. This award was established by City Council in 1985 and is presented every year to honour Robert (Bob) E. Stollings, a loyal and dedicated employee of The City of Red Deer from 1960 to 1984. The recipient of this award has displayed outstanding civic performance in alignment with The City’s Cornerstone Values – Respect, Integrity, Service and Excellence. Nominations are submitted by fellow coworkers detailing the employee’s achievements professionally and interpersonally, along with letters of support.

We are proud to announce this year’s Bob Stollings Memorial Award recipient is Char Rausch. She is the Corporate Events Specialist, but has held many roles within The City throughout her more than 35 years of service. From her time with the RCMP, Mayor and City Manager’s Office, Legislative Services and now with Corporate Communications, Char has always brought her dedication to community and never-ending energy, to her work.

“Those who know Char, know the passion, commitment to excellence, and complete care she puts into everything she does,” says Tracy Bruce, Human Resources Manager. “More than 35 years of service, Char has lived our corporate values and we are happy to celebrate her accomplishments by presenting her with the Bob Stollings Award.”
