Well, have you re­cov­ered from the time change over the week­end? I al­ways say this one is the hard­est one, los­ing an hour like that. Thank­fully it is warm and sunny out­side, make get­ting up ear­lier eas­ier.

The mixed bon­spiel wrapped up on the week­end with a de­li­cious sup­per. There were 21 teams in this year, which is a good num­ber though the or­ga­niz­ers al­ways will wel­come more. At the ban­quet, the Ag so­ci­ety also con­grat­u­lated the ju­nior curlers for a good sea­son and handed out var­i­ous awards to the kids. A big con­grat­u­la­tions goes to the young ladies, Katy Prim­rose, Amy Adams, Shelby Prim­rose and Kayla Adams, who went to the High School Pro­vin­cial curl­ing com­pe­ti­tion a week ago. They came home with Gold again. Good coach­ing, Betty!

The Ladies Open League also wrapped up on Satur­day night with the top award, do­nated by Dave Sil­ber­stein, go­ing to Cindy Kry­w­cun, Leah Watts, Lisa Rosland and Michelle McNaughton. The Open League win­ners were Derek Kry­w­cun, Claire Kry­w­cun, Katy Prim­rose and Melitta Soren­son.

The Mor­rin Lions will be host­ing an Easter Bingo on Wed­nes­day, March 23, doors open at 6:00. It will be held at the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall.

Sandy McNaughton asked me to get the word out about the pos­si­bil­ity of hav­ing Mi­nor ball teams in Rum­sey again this year. The en­roll num­bers are get­ting smaller as our kids are grow­ing older and the next bunch just aren’t big enough to hold that bat yet so she was won­der­ing what teams could be put to­gether this year. Please give her a call at 403-368-2172 if you are in­ter­ested in en­rolling your child in ball this year. She would like to hear from as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble be­fore March 18 which is the end of this week so don’t de­lay.

The Rum­sey Li­brary will be host­ing a craft night this Wed­nes­day, March 16, where we will learn, re­fresh or just en­joy the skills of cro­chet­ing with our res­i­dent ex­perts guid­ing us along so come and join us at 7 pm. Don’t worry if you are late; heck, I’m al­ways late; we will wel­come all in­ter­ested.

The Ver­dant Val­ley gar­den club will be host­ing a Hor­ti­cul­tural Work­shop on Satur­day, April 16 from 10 am to 4 pm in their com­mu­nity hall. Please reg­is­ter by April 8. There is a poster in the Post Of­fice with more de­tails and who to call to reg­is­ter. I hope you en­joy this one: A proud and con­fi­dent ge­nius makes a bet with an id­iot. The ge­nius says, “Hey id­iot, ev­ery ques­tion I ask you that you don’t know the an­swer, you have to give me $5. And if you ask me a ques­tion and I can’t an­swer yours I will give you $5,000.” The id­iot says, “Okay.” The ge­nius then asks, “How many con­ti­nents are there in the world?” The id­iot doesn’t know and hands over the $5. The id­iot says, “Now me ask: what an­i­mal stands with two legs but sleeps with three?” The ge­nius tries and searches very hard for the an­swer but gives up and hands over the $5000. The ge­nius says, “Dang it, I lost. By the way, what was the an­swer to your ques­tion?” The id­iot hands over $5.

Have a great week.
