...from a ski trip a few years back.

So, this picture has absolutely nothing to do with today's post.

Except, it does feature a valuable, Canadian commodity - SNOW!

In the mail this morning was a copy of Westworld, an Alberta Motor Association publication.  On page eight, there's an article on Yukigassen.  Have you heard of this new sport?  Apparently, it's basically an organized snowball fight for adults.  Teams of seven aim to capture the other team's flag.  "Dodgeball, Meet Snowball" is the title of the article.  

Originating in Japan, this new sport has Rules and Regulations, an official playing field, pre-made snowballs and National Championships!  The Canadian Rockies Snow Battle will be held in Jasper, Alberta on November 23rd and 24th this year.   

Welcome winter!
