This being the 150th birthday of Canada, there are tons of events happening in our country and I anticipate a very busy summer for everyone. We plan to hit some of the outdoor concerts, especially Kemptville Live. We are also planning a fishing trip to Temagami and the Queen Charlotte Islands in BC. Did I mention that you only live once?

Fall 2016 Edition
As usual, we have most of our feature writers in this
issue, and a couple of new ones. It's getting harder to
decide what to put in as we seem to get more and
more suggestions for story lines. The best part is that we already have some of the editorial lined up for the winter music edition that is out early December. It was great connecting with many of you, our readers, at many of the outdoor events that we attended. Looking forward to seeing you at the Ultimate Man Show in November. Until then, enjoy our latest issue.

Winter 2015 Edition
You are reading the first winter edition of Bounder. It only took six years to get up to four editions a year, but here it is. The issue's theme is music and I am pleased to premiere a new feature that will focus on the history of Ottawa and the Valley's country music roots. We have had many fantastic musicians from here that made a huge mark on the music industry. We plan to tell their stories in the next upcoming issues.
Fall 2014 Editiion
Man, what a great summer! It seemed that every weekend had so many things to do... too many. This is our first issue themed travel and adventure.

I hope you like this issue. Don't forget we have our music edition will hit the streets in early December.
