Rumsey & District Register
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.
