About 90 people came out on June 18 to attend the Rimbey Regional Synergy Group (RRSG) annual open house and barbeque. Display booths were busy with people connecting with local companies, county reps, the regulator, and support agencies like the Farmer’s Advocate Office and the Alberta Government’s Jobs, Skills, Training and Labour program.

The evening’s presentations started off with an overview and update from the Orphan Well Association, and then led into information from Bonavista on why industry needs to stay current on reclamation, and from Trace Associates on how they go about it. The Alberta Energy Regulator wrapped up the presenta- tions with information on what and how the regulator monitors and enforces in relation to reclamation and remediation activities. The panel then answered questions from the audience related to their specific situ- ations and issues.

The event concluded with a number of door prizes being drawn for and a bit more time spent in one-on-one conversations around the display booths. Overall response and feedback on the open house and barbeque was very positive. People also expressed their appreciation for the additional event sponsorship provided by Safety Boss, Land Solutions, and Specialized Desanders. This sponsorship covered the cost of the venue and most of the meal.

The annual open house and barbeque is an example of the group’s main function of providing opportunities for landowners, residents, agencies, businesses, government and industry to connect, share information, and discuss concerns re- lated to industry activity in the area. The group holds regular meetings locally on the third Thursday of every second month, September through May. Meetings are advertised in the paper and you can get more in- formation about the group by contacting their facilitator, Rick Anderson, at 403-847-8086 or email
