The Davey Bulletin traveled to its highest northern parallel on the globe (unofficially) while accompanying two Davey employees on a job bid. Blair Veitch, vice president and general manager of Canadian operations, and Mark Turnbull, regional manager, Nanaimo, British Columbia, headed north to meet with potential client North West Territories Power Corporation (NWTPC) to bid on a line clearance contract. Making the most of their business trip, Turnbull, Veitch and his Davey Bulletin made a pit-stop at Great Slave Lake, adjacent to the city of Yellowknife, to visit a frozen wonderland. WORLD DAVEY AROUND THE "Although it was late in the winter season, we had to stop and check it out," Veitch said. There, an ice village is part of an annual event called the Snowking Winter Festival, featuring one of the North-West Territories' proudest monuments, the Snowcastle. "When you live that far north, if you don't celebrate the cold, or learn to live with it, you'll never make it," Veitch said. After a quick and cold photo with The Davey Bulletin, Vietch and Turnbull continued their trip into Yellowknife to meet with NWTPC representatives. How did it go? "We got the job," Veitch said.
