Some of the CRHC rabbits will be featured in an upcoming movie! The name of the movie is "Betsy Ross Is Dead". It's a comedy about a rabbit-hopping rabbit who only jumps when she feels like it, but who happens to have a stage mother for a trainer who thinks she owns a very gifted rabbit. The film is due to be completed on June 24, 2011. To read more, click here. Movie produced by Maura Feeney & Daniel Quitério. Inspired by a True Story. Seriously.....

Rob,
Thought I would sent you a note to pass on to the Southpaws rabbit hopping group. We have a very sick child who has been in the hospital for a very long time and will continue to be there while we wait for a heart transplant. Last evening we had the pleasure of stopping in to see the hopping club in action. Not only did the 4H members and their adults expose us all to something that I did not know existed, they also provided a wonderful fun, carefree period of time. How appropriate that they took time from what is a very busy time of the year to engage with others at the Alberta Children's Hospital during this Easter period. I have always been proud of and knew the value of participating in 4H for our children. Last night I saw the value and and was proud of the program from an outsider point of view. Thanks Southpaw for being so patient, letting us touch your rabbits, enjoy your hard work and learn something at the same time. Your generosity of spirit did not go unnoticed.

* On November 1, 2010 we were contacted by a gentleman who is working at an Event Management Agency in Hong Kong. They are preparing for a festive event for a shopping mall in Chinese New Year. He was quite interested to know more about our club & to see if we might be interested in performing in Hong Kong in February 2011.
The CRHC unfortunately had to decline this amazing opportunity due to the strict quarantine regulations coming back into Canada.
