For the past two years, Cheema has hosted the Alumni BBQ & Rib Fest, completely funded and operated by our generous Alumni.  In keeping with hosting this alumni sponsored season end celebration, the 'Senior Paddlers' of Cheema presents FUNFEST2016 on Saturday, Sept 17th.  This season ending celebration will be held at Cheema immediately following the Cheema Awards Banquet.

Starting at 5:30pm, FunFest2016 will comprise of games for children, a beer garden, live music by none other than SLOWCOASTER, an amazing BBQ featuring Championship Ribs; bbq grilled chicken, world famous lobster chowder and a Create Your Own 1/3lb BBQ burgers!

Paddler, Neil Lang says he can’t wait to hear SlowCoaster live. This Maritime, East Coast Music Award winning band has toured the world; has had many hit songs played on the radio the last several years and really knows how to ‘rock the place’! They will perform their new hit song “Falling Satellites” along with many others. They sell out where ever they go and just recently were the head liners closing Stanfest. Neil says ‘I can’t imagine they’re playing for us here at Cheema and we’re really looking forward to a great show!”

The BBQ will feature our Annual Rib Fest competitors as they ‘smoke it out’ for bragging rights crowned by a select panel of judges.

Senior paddler, Kady Leard, one of the organizers says “ticket prices include both dinner and entertainment. Those that are 19 & over can attend the beer garden area while all others can enjoy the music from ‘outside the ropes’. Bring your favorite lawn chair and reserve your space early."

Tickets go on sale starting Saturday Aug 20th. They can be purchased from any of the senior paddlers.

Senior Hunter Morrissey, says, “ ticket prices were set so that they are very reasonable and affordable. It’s more about getting the Cheema Family out for a fun year end celebration.”

Prices are: 19 & over $20; 13 to 18 are $15 and 12 & under are only $10! Hunter’s brother Kingston says “we want this to be a Cheema Family event and we know it will sell out. So we’re not going to the public to sell tickets until Sept. 1st. So get your tickets soon so you don’t miss out. Bring some friends and help us ‘show off’ Cheema."

Senior Tom Hall says “as paddlers we are all very appreciative of the sacrifices and commitments our parents and coaches have made for us during the year and this is a way we can say thank you to all of them!”

Please contact any of our senior paddlers for more information: Kady Keard, Tom Hall, Sammy Hall, Michelle Russell, Mike Sampson, Craig Spence, Peter Korisanszky, Peter Lakner, Hunter Morrissey, Kingston Morrissey, Josh Nowen, Mark Wiseman & Marshall Hughes.
