The Bogey Golf Tour grants golfers a chance to take to the links and compete against fellow amateurs in tournaments scheduled at some of the finest courses in the London, Windsor, Detroit, and Kitchener/Waterloo areas. At each event, scratch golfers compete in the Birdie division, 0–15 handicaps square off in the Par division, and 16+ handicappers trade pinpoint approaches and sequined divot tools in the Bogey division. The top five finishers in each division receive prize money—which can be paid out in gift certificates or cash—and the Tour also holds prize competitions for longest drive, closest to the pin, and 3-iron jousting. The Tour publishes the results from each tournament in local newspapers, and players can chart the peaks and valleys of their careers on the Tour Members list, which compiles all of their tournament results. Along with providing an outlet for amateur golfers to exercise their long-suppressed competitive side, the Tour and its sponsors have raised $74,000 for various area charities since 2003.

With the seasoned guidance of a certified instructor, Sunova Water Sports equips land dwellers with all necessary gear to travel the peaceful waves of Lake Sunova by water ski or wakeboard. During lessons, a water whisperer clads budding riders in a life jacket and helmet, reads them a fortune pried from a giant clam, and coaxes them onto their respective board or ski for a thrilling dance across the lake's refreshing surface. Sunova's low wind pressure safely steers surfers of all ages, and its manageable size provides a calm foundation for clear and accessible lessons. Since Sunova Water Sports furnishes lake runners with all necessary equipment, participants only need to provide a recording of an emotional rock ballad as a soundtrack for their ski jumps. Each lesson lasts 30 minutes, and while Sunova encourages students combine all 90 minutes into one lessons, separate lessons can also be scheduled at varying dates and times.

Based on the American classic by John Steinbeck, Frank Galati's Tony Award–winning stage adaptation of The Grapes of Wrath represents an onstage gale of acting chops, emotion, and clever puppet commentary from the opera box. Antoni Cimolino, general director of the theatre, also directs this classic Great Depression–era tale of a family's migration from Oklahoma to California in the 1930s and the challenges they face in a series of migrant-worker camps. The cast includes award-winning veterans of The Canadian Stage Company, Vancouver Playhouse, and collaborators of visionary thespian Robert Lepage. Both an entertaining and educational windfall, this production of The Grapes of Wrath creates opportunities for field trips, peer bonding, or an undeserved afternoon of fun for complacent dependants. This play is suitable for ages 12 and older.
