We finished on schedule!!!!!!!!!
All day Duncan, Dan, Brad, Crispin, Ryan and James worked out a system for the final cables.
Rand, Kristiana Kim and Brenda-Dale were hard at work on site clean-up.
Allistar and Dion worked to finish the ‘Snagging Lane.” Charnele and Shaylyn were in charge of painting!
Brad’s parents, Garth and Gloria came for a visit and brought us some sweet treats to keep us motivated. Cheryl, Charmaine and Zoe came for a visit from Standing Buffalo. They helped to paint the ‘Snagging Lane.’ You can always count on SBDN to show up and lend a hand- it was great to see them back at it again.
After a couple days of painting, the sign crew (Marlene, Charnele, Shaylyn, Heather, Brenda and more) were ready to put up the sign. Justin, Heather, Ryan, Brenda-Dale, Warren, Rex and Kate helped to dig the holes and find materials for yet another tripod- not our first but our last of this trip. Estelle and Marlene gave us advice on how to screw the sign on and Brenda-Dale and Justin worked out a way to make it happen! The sign looks absolutely beautiful.
Dion took some of the group on a very special mission to find some of the Buffalo that live in Kinistin. After driving through fields, bushes and a marshy area we spotted them grazing in a field.
We finished the day with a Community BBQ and Arbour Celebration. The community came out to celebrate their hard work and accomplishments. Marlene presented us with a beautiful card from Kinistin and each student received a special award as voted on by community members…..The results are in:
Crispin won the Bluest Eyes award.
Ryan won the Sexiest Smile award.
James won the Most Macho Guy award.
Kate won the Kindest Person award.
Duncan won the Sexiest Guy award.
Dan won the Sexiest Voice award
Brenda-Dale won the Cutest Girl award.
Rand won the Sultry award.
Brad won the Hottest Guy award.
Kim won the Saucy award.

We left the site tonight with a great feeling of accomplishment. All of us have created something amazing that will serve as an important cultural centre in Kinistin in the years to come. Along the way we conquered obstacles, learned new skills, made amazing friendships and had a Free Lab to remember!
