Ridley Organ in Pieces!

Don’t panic, the organ is just having a good cleaning after 28 years. Dodington and  Dodington from Alymer Ontario is on campus taking the organ apart, cleaning and fixing anything that needs attention and re-installing the bits and pieces.  They should be done by the end of the week. They will be focusing their attention next week on the “Echo Pipes” that have not worked for quite some time. These are located over the entrance as you walk in to the main chapel. The organ dates back to 1926.

Ridley Rowers Show Well at Henley Regatta

Madison Leitch and Alison Whitty pulled off a late race charge to capture the Under 19 Womens Doubles Championship Friday evening at the Canadian Henley Regatta. The girls were comfortably in third place as they approached the Island, moved quickly through the Vancouver crew for 2nd as they passed the 1500 m pylon and finally chased down, then passed Victoria City from B.C. with about 200 metres to go. A few rough strokes as they neared the finish line added to the drama but the girls from Ridley would not be denied. 76 Crews from across North America started in this category and 1 was left standing to hoist the Thorne Family Trophy!

Connar Boyd ’12 and Austin Bald ’12 finished third in the Under 19 Men’s Pair final on Saturday.  Colin MacKay ’11 and Austin Bald ’12 placed third with their crew in the Under 19 Men’s Eight race on Sunday.

 

3D Movie Filmed on Ridley Campus!

About a week ago, Ridley College was transformed into a movie set with trailers, lighting and cameras all over campus. It was all for the filming of ‘Dead Before Dawn’ – a fast paced adventure comedy that follows a bunch of college kids as they accidentally unleash an evil curse that causes people to kill themselves and turn into Zombie Demons, AKA ZEMONS!!! It’s Canada’s first 3D Feature Film. The film is funded by TELEFILM Canada (The Federal Government Feature Film Program). Emmy winner Christopher Lloyd recently joined the cast that includes Devon Bostick and Martha MacIsaac.
Devon Bostick plays Casper Galloway – you might recognize him from ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ (check out Ridley in the background):
