  Road to the Slurpee CupPDF files may take a moment to load

Indie kids and independent media moguls alike are lacing up their Vans and dusting off their sweat-bands in preparation for the ninth annual CJSW Slurpee Cup street hockey extravaganza.

The Slurpee Cup takes place Sat. Aug. 19 and pits local bands, bars and independent media outlets against each other in a test of street hockey prowess. Each team plays for a charity, and the top team wins the proceeds of the event for their charity in addition to a year's worth of bragging rights.

[Re: "Lions and Belugas and Polar Bears (oh my!)," editorial, Aug. 3, 2006]

The Calgary Zoo has tainted its reputation over the past few years, first with the attempt to impregnate an immature elephant, and now with an even more irresponsible decision to re-introduce polar bears and introduce beluga whales here. On this I agree entirely with opinions editor Kate Foote.

  WrestlingPDF files may take a moment to load

The University of Calgary will play host to the 2008 and 2009 Canadian Interuniversity Sport men's and women's wrestling championships. This is the first time since 1995 that Calgary has played host to the event, and the first time ever that it will play host to the women's portion, which didn't become recognized as a CIS sport until 1999.

CIS wrestling showcases amateur stars and feeds directly to the national team.

The steel cage and mud-wrestling championship dates have yet to be announced.
