On Fe­bru­ary 27-28, Erin Slemko and Katie Taubert com­peted in Pro­vin­cial Play­downs in Rolling Hills with their U14 Ringette team, Strath­more Ice In­ten­sity. The team played hard, win­ning 1 of their 3 games, but were not able to se­cure a spot in Provin­cials. The girls are look­ing for­ward to play­ing in In­dus for Zone play­offs.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the Bas­sano Pee­wee team on an­other great sea­son. Al­though They didn’t make it past the first round of play­offs, they played their hearts out. Our Hussar play­ers are Dustin Holm, Dex­ter Hale, Ja­son Slemko, Em­mitt Filko­hazy, Cadin Hiebert and Dayne Col­lett. Their team is wait­ing un­til April to have a team windup! Good job boys on a great sea­son!

Kevin, Barb, Erin and Ja­son Slemko en­joyed a hol­i­day in Costa Rica from Fe­bru­ary 5-18. They rented a car and trav­elled around the coun­try stay­ing in four dif­fer­ent re­gions. The first few days were spent in the rain­for­est at the base of a vol­cano. There, they en­joyed hot springs, wa­ter­fall rap­pelling, white wa­ter raft­ing, zi­plin­ing and a tour of a choco­late plan­ta­tion. From there, they trav­elled to Manuel An­ton­tio Park on the coast where they en­joyed the beach, surf lessons, and a visit to an an­i­mal res­cue cen­tre. They spent one day at a cloud for­est in Mon­teverde be­fore con­clud­ing their trip at a re­sort on the coast where they en­joyed some pool time and re­lax­ation in the sun. The weather was won­der­ful with the tem­per­a­tures in the mid 30’s.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Joanne Taubert who re­cently re­tired from her po­si­tion at the CNRL Sieu Lake gas plant. She was honored with a cel­e­bra­tion and re­ceived a beau­ti­ful grand­fa­ther clock rec­og­niz­ing 36 years of em­ploy­ment for the var­i­ous com­pa­nies that have owned the plant. It will be a big change for her but she is look­ing for­ward to be­ing able to spend more time with her 2 lit­tle grand­daugh­ters who live in Cal­gary.

This week­end grand­par­ents Terry and Ben Arm­strong, Dianne Brown and Robert Da­men joined par­ents to watch Zone curl­ing in Drumheller where the Strath­more mixed team took the bronze af­ter los­ing only one of the four games played. The skip was Cole Bur­ton, 3rd Layne Wil­son, 2nd Cort Arm­strong and lead Macken­zie Bobee. They also had a spare, Kazy (Kazuhisa Naguchi) an in­ter­na­tional ex­change stu­dent from Ja­pan and the coaches were Brad Steele and Michelle Le­dene. It was fun to watch an ice sport with no body con­tact!!
