Road-trip! Celebrate “Winespring” at St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino

Start spring with a celebration of wine, food and wellness!

When you head west across the mountains, spring comes a lot earlier.  The sun has more heat, and you can’t help but feel a re-awakening from what has been a cold and lengthy winter in the prairies.

Here’s a great option for the April 6-8 weekend.  Head west on Highway 3 through the historic Crowsnest Pass, check out the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre or the Hillcrest Mine tragedy where 189 miners were killed in Canada’s worst coal-mining disaster. It’s a great drive and that will give you some perspective on life and provide many delightful surprises along the way.

Set your sites on Cranbrook, BC  and the St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino  for WineSpring,  a wine tasting and appreciation festival.   The resort partners with wineries and vineyards from across the Okanagan Valley and brings you the very best wines the province has to offer. The event features cool things all weekend long;  an amazing plated dinner (see photo gallery), wine-themed classes and excellent live entertainment.  The main tasting celebration takes place on the Saturday night, April 7th.

The weekend VIP Package starts at $389/person and includes:

  • Two night stay at the resort for Friday, April 6th and Saturday, April 7th
  • Accommodations in a Lodge room (upgrades available upon request and availability)
  • Complimentary bottle of red or white wine in your room upon arrival
  • Admission to the Okanagan Five Dinner on Friday night featuring live entertainment by The Talbott Brothers
  • Access to all classes and seminars on Saturday; including (new this year) our Journey Around Scotland’s Scotch 
  • Entry to the Main Wine Tasting Event on Saturday night including an after party with Burn ‘n’ Mahn Dueling Pianos
  • Bellini Brunch not included in package

The 4th Line hockey podcast heads out for another shift

Published

on

If you like this, share it!

Hockey season is upon us, which makes this a great time to introduce you to Carl Landra and Joel Schnell, co-hosts of The 4th Line Podcast.

The 4th Line follows the weekly happenings in the NHL. It is the creation of a couple of friends who wanted to make a show that they would love listening to. Though they live in Calgary, neither is a Flames fan: Landra cheers for the Colorado Avalanche, and Schnell supports the Toronto Maple Leafs. In addition to listening to their show, check out the website for an active blog that brings in writers from North America and Europe to write about hockey.

Fans of the Red Deer Rebels and other Western Hockey League teams may also enjoy The 4th Line’s spinoff show, The 4th Line WHLCast, another member of the Alberta Podcast Network. Landra hosts that podcast with Seattle’s Andy Eide and Calgary’s Ryan Pike.

Landra and Schnell are very passionate about hockey, without being overly reverent, as you’ll be able to tell from their answers:

  1. What will people get out of listening to your show?

    A. The 4th Line Podcast has a no-finesse take on the NHL. In typical 4th-line fashion, we do whatever it takes to bring the best podcast. While our listeners will get our thoughts on the latest NHL news, we bring a a variety of games and regular segments that keep things fresh and fun.
  2. How did you and your co-host meet?
    A. We met over a game of poker — Carl in a Blue Jays hat, Joel in a Yankees hat. To quote Carl: “Sorry, I can never be friends with a Yankees fan.” Over 10 years later, he might be wrong.
  3. Why do you think people enjoy podcasts?
    A. Podcasts are a way to always be learning, gaining knowledge, expanding your understanding, and having a laugh. With a wide range of podcasts available, there is always something for everyone.
  4. Q. Do you have any unusual hobbies or talents that may surprise your listeners?
    Archery. Maybe that’s surprising?
  5. Q. What’s on your music playlist right now?
    A. Usually something country. A mix of Eric Church and Jason Aldean is a good start.

    Q. If you could have any guest on your show, who would you choose?
    A. Alexander Ovechkin would be great to have on the show. To know the stories behind the Stanley Cup celebration, if he can even tell them, would be a great thing to bring our listeners!
  6. What has been your favourite episode so far and why?
    A. Our Captain’s Royal Rumble episode was a turning point for us. It solidified for us that what we were doing resonated with our listeners, even if some people didn’t enjoy it.

 

Be sure to connect with The 4th Line on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.

Over the next several weeks, Todayville will introduce you to members of the Alberta Podcast Network, so you can invite even more Alberta-made podcasts into your ears! Find The 4th Line and The 4th Line WHL Cast, along with dozens of other shows, at albertapodcastnetwork.com.
