Tackle football, Cool Runnings and a big ass megaphone!

I'm so excited and PROUD to announce our newest addition to Awesome People, Linda Craig!

Linda is probably the most enthusiastic person I know! She has been an advocate for Pride Calgary and Women's Sports since the 80's! She sat on the Calgary Pride board from the late 80's to the late 90's and was a catalyst in its development. 

Linda played tackle football in her 40's and was the founding member of WWCFL - Western Women's Canadian Football League. Now women in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba can also play, with 8 teams to pick from. Thank You, Linda!!
