Other volunteer heritage performers and educators who have committed to spending time at the museum are cowboy poet and retired farmer Harold Webber, a homesteader from Olds who goes by the name of Jade, weaver Ruth Hahn who among other items creates tea towels and hand cloths, as well as Jack Nichol, rodeo cowboy and former bull rider, and his wife Marj, who agreed to don full period clothes when showing visitors around the museum, which she knows like the back of her hand, said Marr.
“This’ll be a big first,” he said when asked whether he had ever before embarked on such an undertaking, which involves raising funds. As of the week of Sept. 4, Meservia’s fundraising campaign had reached $5,400 of a $7,500 goal with more than two months to go. Any funds raised above and beyond that goal before the Nov. 30 deadline will be allocated to future teams.
When asked what she has most enjoyed about fulfilling the duties of her new role as a representative of not only Sundre but also the local rodeo, Brace said, “It’s been really great to promote not only a rodeo that I’ve been going to since I was really young, but also a really incredible community.”
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
