Why We Love Scary Stuff

An attacker comes at you in your own home, instead of going out the front door you choose to run upstairs and secure yourself in a bathroom with a lock that a small child could break. Before you know it a knife (if you're in the city), axe (if you're in the country), or smoke (if you're in a vamp movie) comes through the door. Why do we love watching scary movies? What is it about Halloween that gets our juices going?

Whistler Social Netball League and Netball 101 By Steph Ball

So for the love of Netball and being deprived from a sport I love so much, the Whistler Social Netball League was founded in December 2012. To give you a quick idea of the sport - the development of netball derived from basketball from England in the 1890s.

Gibbons Takes on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

When our CEO, Joey Gibbons, was one he lost his Grandpa to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Known as “Superdad” it was a huge blow to the family to loose such a treasured man, and frustrating because there was nothing they could do – unfortunately there still isn’t. ALS is a rapidly progressive, invariably fatal neurological disease that attacks the nerve cells responsible for muscle action we are able to control, such as those in the arms, legs, and face. The disease belongs to a group of disorders known as motor neuron diseases, which are characterized by the gradual degeneration and death of motor neurons. Watch how the whole Gibbons team – Longhorns, Buffalo Bills, Tapley’s, Garfinkel’s and FireRock Lounge got nominated – it’s on Whistler, they've got 24 hours!
