Rum­sey & Dis­trict Reg­is­ter

The Drumheller Mail - - REAL ESTATE - Patty Steen 403-368-3820

The beau­ti­ful fall weather has fi­nally ar­rived and the farm­ers were quick to take ad­van­tage of it last week. The com­bines have been trav­el­ling around and around, the trucks are rush­ing up and down the road and the har­vest is fi­nally com­ing off the fields and into the bins (or grain bags, which seems to be the norm this fall) Please be care­ful and con­sid­er­ate of the farm­ers dur­ing the next lit­tle bit be­cause they have been wait­ing so long and are stressed al­ready; they will try their best to be care­ful as they trans­port their very large equip­ment up and down the roads but they can’t al­ways see a small ve­hi­cle so they need your help to en­sure that every­one gets safely to their des­ti­na­tion. Thank you from all the farm­ers.

The Rum­sey Drop-In will be host­ing a Remembrance Ser­vice this Fri­day, Novem­ber 11 start­ing at 10:45. The Drop-In serves as a Char­tered Le­gion for this area as there were many young men who went to war from this area. On the in­te­rior east wall as well as out­side on the ceno­taph you can see the names of many of our brave men and women from this com­mu­nity who knew what was needed to in­sure our con­tin­ued free­dom. There are also many pic­tures and sto­ries in the red his­tory book about them. Be sure to take time out of your Fri­day to re­mem­ber.

The first An­nual Christ­mas mar­ket is com­ing quickly. Claire and Baylee, on be­half of the Rum­sey Ag So­ci­ety, have been work­ing hard to se­cure a lot of ven­dors will be sell­ing their wares so it will be a fun af­ter­noon with plenty of op­por­tu­nity to pick up some Christ­mas gifts for every­one in your fam­ily and maybe some­thing for your­self as well; make sure you mark down Novem­ber 26 on your calen- dar from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. The ladies will be serv­ing spe­cialty drinks and treats all af­ter­noon as well to make your af­ter­noon a lot of fun. `The Fall Sup­per was well at­tended as well as many plates head­ing out the door to the field to feed the farm­ers work­ing un­til well past dark. So thank you to all who made an ef­fort to at­tend, it has been such a dif­fi­cult fall that it was hard to de­cide whether to go ahead with the sup­per as planned and it was good they did. The Ag So­ci­ety mem­bers as well as com­mu­nity mem­bers had been busy clean­ing the hall and curl­ing rink in prepa­ra­tion of this sup­per and the up and com­ing curl­ing sea­son so the build­ings re­ally re­flected this ef­fort, a big thank you to all who came in to work.

The start date for Su­per League was post­poned to this com­ing Fri­day, Novem­ber 11 be­cause every­one was back in the fields. The Ladies league will go ahead as planned on Tues­day, Novem­ber 8 and ev­ery Tues­day fol­low­ing. The Open League was sched­uled to start on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 10 but has been post­poned un­til Novem­ber 17 as well as the Ju­nior league which will start on Novem­ber 22. Hope­fully, every­one will be closer to be­ing done as each sunny day goes by. It is odd to say but we fi­nally have the Septem­ber we have been look­ing for.

The wild­cats lost yes­ter­day in Syl­van lake 33 to 14, the score doesn’t re­flect the game well, they were tied into the third quar­ter then syl­van pulled ahead. The boys did well but it was a drudgery of a game with very few big plays and ad­vances up the field be­ing made 10 yards at a time. We didn’t have the stamina to main­tain that kind of pres­sure for an en­tire game. The of­fen­sive line was just worn out and couldn’t hardly give Car­son any­time in the pocket. He was forced to rush his throws and passes but did very well un­der the pres­sure and for a rookie, he did great. I’m sure you will talk to Nor­bert and Guy. With this loss Syl­van will be Ru­ral Con­fer­ence cham­pi­ons and we get Sil­ver (just like last year) but we will be ad­vanc­ing onto Tier 4 pro­vin­cial quar­ter fi­nals in Ar­drossen next week (prob­a­bly Satur­day) so the kids will need to do some heal­ing and more prac­tic­ing and we will see what hap­pens. They will def­i­nitely fit bet­ter in a Tier 4 level com­pe­ti­tion (as I have ranted about be­fore).

Here some­thing for your kids to try at school:

Stu­dent: ” Teacher, would you pu­n­ish me for some­thing I didn’t do?”

Teacher: “No, of course not!”

Stu­dent: “Great, be­cause I didn’t do my home­work.”

Have a great week.
