The Nexsource Centre is near completion and the Town of Sylvan Lake is putting on a unique fundraiser for the Centre.

Trunks n Bucks a celebration and showcase of everything outdoors will motor into the Sylvan Lake Community Centre on October 7 and 8, where community members and visitors will be invited to two days of outdoorentertainment.

Monique Pummin, Sylvan Lake Recreation representative and organizer of Trucks n’ Bucks, is excited to bring this event to Sylvan Lake for the first time.

“It is a two-day family-friendly event and its based on everything outdoors so camping, fishing, hunting, quading, ATVs and all that kind of stuff,” she said.

The event is a family friendly event that features an indoor trade-show, monster trucks rides, outdoor games, an archery competition and a Saturday evening Jeff Foxworthy Impersonator: 9-second rides.

“It is basically a fundraising event for the Nexsource Centre and we wanted to create a fun, family event for the Thanksgiving weekend,” Pummin said. “It is something really fun and exciting for families to do together. It is going tobe absolutely fantastic.”

The archery competition will put competitors up against a professional archer, something that Pummin said will be “a huge draw.”

“So anyone who loves archery and watching archery, that’s definitely something to come out and try to beat that pro,” Pummin added.

The outdoor games and indoor trade show cost $5 per person, with children under five getting in free. The monster truck rides will cost $10 per person and proceeds for this event will go towards breast cancer research.

The Jeff Foxworthy Impersonator 9-second rides has a special early-bird cost of $20 before September 16, with the cost raising to $25 per person after that. A group of eight will receive a discount rate od $140 per table.

“We are really excited for the first year,” Pummin said. “We haven’t had anything like this in Sylvan so I think it will be a really good time.”

People can purchase their tickets at the Recreation Office 4926 50 Avenue or over the phone at (403) 887-2199.

Pummin added that the event is fully family friendly and that it will be “very exciting.”
