Hello Hand Hills….what beau­ti­ful weather we have been hav­ing over the course of the week. A lit­tle wind but ev­ery­thing is look­ing green and the dust is at a min­i­mum thanks to the past snow and rain. Could it re­ally be Spring?

And they are off; the Cos­grave/Profit Chuck­wagon Team has a new mem­ber. Harper Rose was born on Thurs­day, April 28 and al­ready has her Dad’s reins all wrapped up. Mom, Charleigh, is do­ing great. Grandma Tara has an­other Cos­grave to cheer on. First time grand­par­ents, Grant and Shel­ley Profit, will en­joy this new­est ar­rival to the fullest. Great Grandma Ber­nice Cos­grave can watch this gen­er­a­tion of Cos­grave’s grow and grow. Great Un­cle Ron­nie and wife Da­lene got in some cud­dles as well. Brother Chad and his wife Lacey made the trip from Brandt to meet the new­est Cos­grave. Charleigh’s Fam­ily came to the Hills to meet and en­joy the new bun­dle of joy. What an ex­cit­ing time on the Cos­grave/Profit Track!

The Hand Hills is send­ing well wishes to John Rew as he is in re­cov­ery af­ter Can­cer Treat­ments. John al­ways steps up to the plate for the com­mu­nity and now it is our turn to step up for him. Speedy re­cov­ery John! I also heard that Betty Rew was feel­ing a lit­tle un­der the weather so Get Well Wishes to her as well.

Plans are re­ally gear­ing up for the 100th. The Stam­pede still needs vol­un­teers and any­one that vol­un­teers get $25 in Hand Hills Bucks as a pay­back. Sign up to work some shifts now! If you have any spare time this month I am sure there will be some­thing hap­pen­ing at the grounds that could use your ex­per­tise.

Are you all geared up for all of the en­ter­tain­ment that is go­ing to be hap­pen­ing at the Stam­pede? Ash Cooper in the arena, the Mounted Shoot­ers’ on Fri­day night, the Cal­gary Show Riders on Satur­day, Drew Gre­gory and the Cat Coun­try Band will be on Stage as well as the Bixby and 5 of Di­a­monds. Come to the Her­itage Tent on Satur­day af­ter­noon and en­joy the mu­sic of Don Howard and Band, all the while visit­ing with old friends. Some­thing re­ally new and ex­cit­ing to en­ter­tain you is the Wild Pony Race af­ter the Rodeo on both Satur­day and Sun­day. These lit­tle cow­boys and cow­girls will show you true grit and de­ter­mi­na­tion. The Pa­rade will be ex­cit­ing as will be the fire­works on Satur­day night. The Trade Fair is open all week­end in the Club­house and you can en­ter­tain your shop­ping habits at this venue. The “full bar” Beer Gar­dens is some­thing new this year and will be a de­light to those that are not true blue beer drinkers. Come en­joy a drink with friends! The bouncy cas­tles will be back to en­ter­tain the kids and will be open on both Satur­day and Sun­day. On top of all of this there is the Rodeo. You are sure to find some­thing to do all week­end long at the 100th. The gate will be open from Wed­nes­day on. Be sure to check out our web­site at www.hand­hills.a.b.ca See you at the Stam­pede.

Till next week…the count­down is on for the 100th! Get in­volved and let’s put on a Stam­pede that will be talked about for a long time!
