The Rum­sey Mens Bon­spiel con­cluded this past Satur­day with some good curl­ing hap­pen­ing with the 18 teams that en­tered. There, of course, has to be some win­ners and some se­cond place peo­ple so this is how the fi­nal games placed ev­ery­one. In the first event, the Al Gar­man team beat out the Jim Kry­w­cun team. In the B event, Dale Brown’s team took away the big prize with Ian Michie pick­ing up se­cond place. In the 3rd event, Justin Wolfe’s team came away with the first prize and Justin Jones and his curlers took se­cond. Tim Prim­rose beat Bill Her­man’s team out for 3rd in the first event and Bradley Nelson beat out Tracy Nelson’s team for 3rd in the se­cond event. In the 3rd event, Phil John­son took home 3rd place leav­ing Kent Holowath to bring home 4th in the third wrap­ping up the bon­spiel for an­other year. There were also some nice door prizes to hand out so Kevin Helmer, James Dodd, Cliff Sharpe, Rod Nelson, John Schofer, Brooks Watts and Brett Holowath also were able to take some­thing home from a good week of curl­ing. The next bon­spiel up will be the wom­ens start­ing on Feb. 10 and go­ing to Satur­day, Feb. 13. Keep in mind that Oys­ter sup­per is al­ways held on Thurs­day of the bon­spiels and the ban­quet sup­per is open to all com­mu­nity mem­bers whether you curl or not. On the other nights, there is al­ways steak sup­pers, fresh home­made soup and desserts so good rea­son to go to the rink in the win­ter. Call Brooks and Jackie to reg­is­ter a team at 403-3682357.

The Li­brary will be hav­ing an­other fun craft night on Fe­bru­ary 17 start­ing at 7:00 p.m. where we will learn how to do some felt­ing and make one or two felt dryer balls. (De­pends how quickly we catch on, I guess). There are some 2016 cal­en­dars left and I would love to raise a lit­tle more money for the li­brary by con­vinc­ing you to come in and buy one to grace your wall.

The Star­land County and Knee­hill County are com­bin­ing ef­forts to host a So­lar for Al­berta Farm­ers work­shop on Fe­bru­ary 23. There is a reg­is­tra­tion fee and in­cludes lunch. The work­shop will cover so­lar elec­tric sys­tem sit­ing, in­stal­la­tion, per­mit­ting and eco­nom­ics. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Al­berta So­lar Co-op will also be there to give a short pre­sen­ta­tion on the so­lar farm be­ing built in Star­land County. Call the ladies at Star­land County of­fice 403-772-3793 to reg­is­ter be­cause it is manda­tory! They are also host­ing a Work­ing Well Work­shop on March 3 at the Delia Hall. Reg­is­tra­tion for this work­shop is manda­tory as well so call in early.

I will close off with a bit of trivia for you. On Fe­bru­ary 15, which is also fam­ily day here in Al­berta, it is Na­tional Flag Day! So get those flags in good con­di­tion so they are fly­ing nice and bright on that day. This year will mark the 51st an­niver­sary for the Cana­dian Flag! That’s not that long ago in com­par­i­son of the age of our coun­try it­self. Who was de­bat­ing that for so long? Let me guess, a govern­ment com­mit­tee in Ottawa I bet. Have a great week.
