Well, it was a good week­end of curl­ing in Rum­sey with 33 teams of mixed dou­bles en­joy­ing some good games, fun times and great meals at our rink. The win­ners of the A event were Shel­ley Prim­rose and Tris­ten Miller beat­ing out Kim and Kevin Helmer. In the B event, Betty Prim­rose and Brighten Watts took away the top spot from Katie Prim­rose and her dad, Tim. In the third event, Amy and Jack Adams won over Brit­tany Caw­iezel and Dal­las Kry­wcum. Lots of peo­ple en­joyed good prizes as well and went home happy. Next up will be the reg­u­lar Mixed Bon­spiel start­ing on March 7 and run­ning un­til March 12. There will be the usual con­ces­sions ev­ery night as well as the Oys­ter Feast on Thurs­day night, March 10 and fi­nal ban­quet on Satur­day the 12th. If you want to en­ter call Brooks and Jackie Watts at 403368-2357.

The Big Val­ley Elks will be host­ing their YukYuk night this Satur­day, Feb. 27 start­ing at 5:00 with cock­tails then a meal and com­edy show to fol­low. I be­lieve you would be able to get tick­ets from any of the Elk mem­bers here in Rum­sey or from Big Val­ley. It prom­ises to be a lot of fun and plenty of laughs for ev­ery­one.

The li­brary hosted a craft night this past Wed­nes­day and we had a good time with a good crowd of crafters want­ing to learn the skills of felt­ing. We all made some wool/felt dryer balls to speed the dry­ing time at home. There were 9 peo­ple who came in and I hope the num­ber will grow. I have or­dered some more felt­ing nee­dles and they should be in this week so if you are in­ter­ested in pur­chas­ing one or two they will be avail­able. Re­mem­ber you can come in just to sit and en­joy your own fa­vorite craft and share ideas. Next month we will meet at the li­brary on Wed­nes­day, March 16 to learn, re­fresh or show off our skills of cro­chet­ing. The evening will start at 7 p.m. so come and en­joy some crafters fun.

Also on the up and com­ing cal­en­dar is the Mor­rin Fig­ure Skat­ing Car­ni­val on March 6 start­ing at 2:00 p.m. Th­ese kids have worked hard all win­ter and it is time to show off all this tal­ent so come out for a fun af­ter­noon and sup­port the Fig­ure Skat­ing Club.

I hope you en­joy this lit­tle chuckle of the day:

Af­ter wait­ing for what seemed like an eternity, the stew­ardess an­nounces over the in­ter­com that “we’re just wait­ing for the pi­lots.”

The pas­sen­gers look out the win­dow and see two men, dressed as pi­lots walk­ing to­wards the plane. Both men are us­ing guide dogs and ap­pear to be blind. There are mur­murs among the pas­sen­gers, and some be­lieve it is a joke.

The men board the plane and go into the cock­pit. More con­cerned mur­murs and un­easy chuck­les from the pas­sen­gers. The plane taxis nor­mally to the run­way and be­gins it’s take­off. As pas­sen­gers look out the win­dow they re­al­ize they are near­ing the end of the run­way. The en­tire pas­sen­ger cabin be­gins scream­ing but the plane lifts off just be­fore the end of the run­way. The pas­sen­gers calm down and chuckle to them­selves, at this point be­liev­ing that they fell for a joke.

In the cock­pit, the pi­lot turns to his copi­lot and says “you know, one day those peo­ple are gonna scream too late and we’re all gonna die!”

Have a great week.
