An Update on Events at the Bighorn Campground

On Saturday, August 20, FOESA Bighorn campground host, Tom Davidson, had an accident and broke his left ankle. Tom was taken to Red Deer Hospital and had surgery to pin and plate the fracture. Tom is doing very well with a favorable prognosis for full recovery. He was discharged from Red Deer Hospital on Tuesday afternoon and will be under the care of his family doctor back home in Castor, Alberta. Some of his friends will be dismantling Tom's camp later this week so "The Bighorn Hilton" will be closed for the season. For further information or for enquiries and/or membership payments, please contact one of the FOESA directors.

The FOESA Directors and the entire FOESA Family wish Tom the best for a speedy and full recovery!

Horse Stall Priorty

Dear Campers and Friends of the Eastern Slopes,

We have recently received correspondence from concerned members regarding horse stall and high line stall camp sites being occupied by camping units without horses. We, the Friends of the Eastern Slopes Association, support and encourage multi use of all of our 6 campground areas. As a courtesy to the campers with horses we are asking to give priority for the stalled and high lined sites to people travelling with horses. If the campground is full and no other options exist then by all means non horse users are welcome to use stalled and high lined sites. We operate on a first come first served basis.

Thank-you for your co-operation,

FOESA
