  CALGARY, ALBERTA, Aug 18 (MARKET WIRE) --



WHAT:     The Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society (STARS) is airlifting six     
          prominent Calgary-based CEOs and dropping them into the heart of  
          Kananaskis Country. With no escape route, the CEOs will have no   
          choice but to "earn" their survival by remaining on the mountain  
          until they raise a goal of $100,000 each, using only their cell   
          phones to collect donations and raise funds.                      

          The event is called CEO Rescue in the Rockies for STARS, and they 
          are aiming to make fundraising history by raising the single      
          largest dollar amount in one day for STARS. Once each CEO reaches 
          their personal goal, they will be "rescued" from the site.

          Kevin Neveu - President & CEO of Precision Drilling Corporation
