Pengrowth Hoedown 2006

When IAS was booked for a ‘backyard party’ we wondered why EMS would be required until we arrived.  ‘Backyard party’ took on a whole new meaning with so many people in attendance (1000+). 

The big save of the day occurred when Brian saved a young kid from heat stroke... By ‘kid’ we mean goat!

 There was a petting zoo on the premises, and the IAS guys happened to notice one of the baby goats was distressed.  After examination, it was determined the little guy was suffering from heatstroke.  He was tachycardic, dry, hyperventilating and listless.  After performing ABCs and placing the goat in the shade, IAS administered fluids and electrolytes much to the confusion of the crowd.  The goat made a full recovery, as you can see from the pictures.  One person commented, “Wow!  You save animals, too?”  It wouldn’t be the first time, nor the last.

 The IAS team met some interesting people, including country singer Beverly Mahood and comedian Mike Bullard.  Miss Calgary and Miss Sun and Salsa were also in attendance, along with Kim Mitchell and Randy Bachman from BTO.  We thank everyone for giving us permission to post their photos.  It was great to meet them and we consider them as wonderful people to know.

 A freak storm sailed in and tried to dampen the event, to no avail.  The IAS team was given new shirts to wear while uniforms dried, and two children were treated for hypothermia as the temperature plummeted from 35 degrees to 10. ( Celsius, not Fahrenheit).

 The IAS team was impressed by the organization of the event and noticed that everyone enjoyed themselves immensely.  It is a tribute to Pengrowth that everyone showed such friendliness and generosity.  Thanks for having us, and thanks for the shirts!
