Summer is definitely the best time of year in Calgary. No, you can't ski and yes, the Den is dead every night of the week, but once the freak May blizzards stop and the snow melts, the town transforms.

Hiding inside after nine months of winter is unimaginable, but there isn't a beach in sight.

  A little Extra EffortPDF files may take a moment to load

The Gauntlet annually gives out the Extra Effort Award to two athletes that deserve it. This year's recipients were from women's hockey Kealy McGraw and from men's volleyball Kelly Cherniwchan (far right). McGraw went out off her way to make inspirational pre-game CDS and highlight videos for her team, while Cherniwchan overcame injury after injury to help a team with a losing record finish fourth in the nation.

In her two months on the job, Jayna Gilchrist has done the minimum requirements of her position. However, according to most, this is an improvement on the work of her predecessor, Rosia Nagra, who resigned in early January due to personal reasons.
