More information on the Wounded Warriors:

Wounded Warriors Weekend was once a dream in the heart of an Air Force veteran, Blake Emmons. In the fall of 2011, while sitting around a campfire at Tobin Lake Saskatchewan, Blake shared his dream with his best friend Jimmy Chute. On that fateful night the two friends conspired to bring 20 of Blake’s fellow veterans to Nipawin Saskatchewan to share a weekend of world-class fishing, golf and a great outdoor experience. Most important was the fact that these two friends wanted to show these heretofore unheralded Wounded Warriors that somebody cared. Blake and Jim sought assistance from the President of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #120, Verda Hoppe, which she willingly and wholeheartedly agreed to provide. The three were now united together by the common bond of wanting to show our veterans that we as a town, as a Province and as a Country cared for and appreciated the sacrifices our brave veterans, reservists and active duty military men and women had made on our behalf.  Together,Blake, Jim and Verda presented their mutual dream to the public.

That dream became a reality in August of 2012 when the town of Nipawin Saskatchewan hosted not 20 as originally planned, but over 120 Wounded Warriors from Canada and the USA. And that, dear friends, is how Wounded Warriors Weekend was born.


The results of that first Wounded Warriors Weekend were unprecedented and can be viewed by clicking on the Wounded Warriors Weekend Special video here:
With the total support of Saskatchewan’s Royal Canadian Legions and at the special request of Saskatchewan’s Lt. Gov. the Hon. Vaughn Solomon Schofield, the Wounded Warriors Weekend was presented once more in 2013. This time Wounded Warriors from Australia and the UK were welcomed along with our Canadian and American troops. Well over 200 Wounded Warriors were once again welcomed, entertained and honored with an outpouring of gratitude from the citizens of Saskatchewan.

The Royal Canadian Legion branch #120 is now proudly known as the “Mother Church” of Wounded Warriors Weekend.

We are equally proud to announce the passing of our Wounded Warriors Weekend flag to the Royal Canadian Legion branch #110 in Slave Lake Alberta, where they will present WOUNDED WARRIORS WEEKEND 2014 and host over 200 Wounded Warriors from Canada, the USA, Australia and the UK.
