There has been quite the se­lec­tion of thun­der storms over the last week or so. The one on the night of July 1st, early July 2 must have been some­thing to see. It mea­sured 3 inches in a rain gauge in Mid­land and the silt on the road was up over a 1/3 of the width of the road. It must have been like a great river com­ing down off the hills.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Randy and Jes­sica Sharpe on win­ning this week’s Mun­son 300 Raf­fle draw. This week was a spe­cial draw for $500.00! Con­grat­u­la­tions and thank you for your sup­port. Next Satur­day the draw will be for $100 again un­til De­cem­ber 31 when the fi­nal draw is $1,000.00.

It’s that time on year for 4H Camp, Sum­mer Fun Pro­grams and va­ca­tions. Calgary Stam­pede starts this Fri­day, hope­fully we can find the com­plete Chuck­wagon races on one of the TV chan­nels. It makes me a lit­tle crazy that one of the Calgary sta­tions can’t broad­cast them. It’s the high­light of the sum­mer for the Se­niors to watch.

As the sum­mer will go quickly just some re­minders to put on your calendar: The Di­nosaur Val­ley Half Marathon will be on Septem­ber 11 this year start­ing at the BCF. This event is a fam­ily event with a 5K race that in­cludes all mem­bers of the fam­ily from the very young to the just want­ing to learn to run, walk fast and just get a lit­tle ex­er­cise. The 10K race is a go place to push your­self just a lit­tle harder to get into shape and see how your time can im­prove in a race set­ting. Of course the 21K or Half Marathon is for the folks that re­ally chal­lenge them­selves. All three races are set within the Drumheller Val­ley and take ad­van­tage of the won­der­ful trail sys­tem that we have from the east end of Drumheller to the west by the Mu­seum. If you have any ques­tions have a look at the web­site www.di­nosaur­val­ley­half.com.

Also mark on your calendar the 27th An­nual Ride for STARS on Au­gust 7 at the TL Bar Ranch. There is a sup­per the night be­fore, camp­ing, a great break­fast the morn­ing of the ride and the silent auc­tion that hap­pens all day long.

Have a great week and en­joy the lush green around us. Even if some of the green is just weeds.
