Fort Macleod volleyball tournament to fund two STARS missions



STARS air ambulance has the money for two missions thanks to a Fort Macleod volleyball tournament.
The 17th annual STARS Charity Co-ed Volleyball Tournament on April 5-7 raised $11,419.27.
“This amount represents our second highest donated amount to date,” tournament founder Mike Bourassa said.
Forty-two teams competed in competitive, intermediate and recreational divisions in the three-day tournament.
Games were held at the Fort Macleod and District Sports Centre, which had four portable courts in play.
Games were also played at W.A. Day school.
The competitive division was won by Experience Regina, the intermediate division was won by Calm, and the recreational division was won by New Kids on the Block.
The goal of the tournament each year is to raise enough money to fund one STARS mission.
Each mission costs about $5,400, so the 2019 tournament will fund two flights.
Coun. Gord Wolstenholme praised tournament organizers at the April 8 council meeting.
“I was at the STARS tournament and it was really well done,” Wolstenholme said. “I think it’s something that is good for the town.”
