Holiday markets return in Slave Lake

The All Season Market and Slave Lake Farmers Market have joined forces to offer some seasonal shopping in the Slave Lake Multi Rec Centre (MRC).
Since 2013, Melissa Baxter and Chelsea Saluk have organized All Season Markets around major holidays: Valentines, Easter, Halloween, and Christmas.


Icedogs out the gate with two wins

Slave Lake’s Junior ‘A’ team started its sophomore season with a bang, clobbering the rookie Fox Creek Ice Kings in a pair of games. The ‘Dogs skated to an 8 – 1 win in Fox Creek Friday night and followed it up with a 9 -1 victory in their home-opener Saturday.


Groups gear up for a very different ice-use season

Ice user groups got the lowdown last week on the Town of Slave Lake’s plans for running the indoor ice rinks this season.
It starts with a later-than-usual date (or dates) for ice installation. And then it gets very strange, with guidelines for reducing the risk of spreading COVID-19 being the dominant factor.


The word from the Icedogs: ‘We are going ahead’

COVID restrictions on the number of spectators at games are not going to stop the Slave Lake Icedogs from taking the ice this season. That’s the word from Lauren Barr, the Junior team’s general manager.
Barr plans to be back for a second season and says she recently met with Town of Slave Lake officials to talk about the situation.
