Dust Off Those Party Shoes
The really big show is ready to start!
In just a few short days, on November 11, the Mount Doug 80 Birthday Celebrations kick off. That’s only a few sleeps away and there’s still time to get your tickets – but advance sales can now only happen online. No worries, as you can feel secure when you purchase your tickets using PayPal. Or if you’re still afraid that the boogie man will somehow get access to all your credit history, you can still buy tickets at the door - provided they’re not sold out! Visit: mountdougalumni.com for details.
Lest we Forget
The MD 80 Celebrations starts with a very meaningful occasion on November 11th, as we invite you and your family to gather at the school at for an 8:00 am ceremony of Remembrance and to pay tribute to Mount Doug Alumni who have served our country in the military since 1931. Some of these volunteers paid the ultimate sacrifice and did not return home to their families. This event will feature a plaque dedication and support from current members of Canada’s Armed Forces including a Sea King Flypastat 8:45 am.
It’s all over but for the singing!
Our Mount Doug Idol finalists have been selected! They are the survivors of an entertaining but rigorous semi-final evening of judging last week – and because the 15 singers were so talented they made it difficult for the judges to shorten the list to only five. For those already with tickets, you’re in for an entertaining evening on the 19th – for the rest of you, there are again tickets available at various prices!
Shiver me timbers…
The location of the buried treasure at the old Mount Doug HAS BEEN FOUND!!! Thanks to Shirley, from the class of ‘50, we now hope to determine when the “time capsule” was to be recovered. Can any ‘50 classmates or staff fill in the blanks? Please leave a message @ 250-704-0680 - more info to follow.

Geez coach, now I understand why you never started me! All kidding aside, what athletic accomplishments would you have had at school, or afterwards, if not for your great coaches at Mount Doug. They put a lot of extra time into your personal and team development – why not take a little of your own time and honour them at the Sports Social in the afternoon of the 19th? In no particular order, the coaches we will be honouring are Dave Barker, Soccer; Stan Gill, Track & Field; Al Cochrane &Mark Townsend, Football; and Earl Hockin, Basketball. Visit: mountdougalumni.com for event details. Bring your friends - this special event is open to the general public!
And speaking about sports...
We’re still looking for athletes to relive past glories against other Mount Doug sporting enthusiats. Running shoes are necessary, but rock hard abs aren’t - if only! Fill out the athletic sign-up form.

A veritable who’s who!
Beyond those already announced as attending or performing, we don’t know for sure who of our many other famous alumni will be attending throughout the 80th Celebrations. However, we do know for sure you won’t see any of them if you stay at home. Besides, you’ll miss hobnobbing with us “regular” folk too. Visit:mountdougalumni.com now and we’ll see you there!
