I no­ticed through Face­book that many in our com­mu­nity have, are and will be en­joy­ing a hol­i­day in the warm sun­shine of the south coun­try. That is a won­der­ful break from this ex­treme cold we have been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing. It is def­i­nitely a lot dif­fer­ent than last year’s Jan­uary. Av­er­age tem­per­a­ture this past week were in the – 30 C range with wind chills, last year at this time the tem­per­a­tures av­er­ages be­tween -3 to +5 C! Quite a dif­fer­ence. Good luck to all those who might be calv­ing at this time.

The Mens’ bon­spiel is fast ap­proach­ing so if you haven’t got your curl­ing equip­ment out yet, you best dust it off and give a call to Brooks and Jackie Watts at 403-368-2357 to book in your team. The bon­spiel will start ei­ther Mon­day or Tues­day, Jan­uary 23 or 24. Don’t for­get that Rum­sey’s fa­mous Oys­ter Night will be held on Thurs­day night and Wing Night is Fri­day with the ban­quet to con­clude the event on Satur­day, Jan­uary 28. There is al­ways lots to eat so even if you are not a curler and would en­joy a night out with good food and good com­pany, come and join ev­ery­one on Satur­day night from 5 to 7:00 p.m. for a great meal at a great price.

The Mor­rin Fig­ure Skat­ing club is sell­ing tick­ets fast for their fundraiser on Fe­bru­ary 4 at the Rum­sey Hall start­ing at 8:00 p.m. They have engaged the Hanna band “Five of Di­a­monds” to en­ter­tain start­ing at 9:00 p.m. so get your danc­ing shoes on and come and join in the fun. You can get your tick­ets from any of the fig­ure skaters lo­cally, I know that Mary-Ann Jensen has some and Shannon Wilkins will also have some to sell.

If you are in­ter­ested in book­ing the Hall or curl­ing rink, you now can call B.J. Perry at 403-334-2384 as she has agreed to take on this job as part of her du­ties on the Ag Board. Also, if you are in­ter­ested in book­ing a smaller venue in town, you can give me a call to book the DropIn Cen­ter as it works great for groups un­der 50 peo­ple. You can con­tact me at 403-3683820.

I’ll wrap up my short col­umn with a lit­tle chuckle to see you through the day:

The teacher said to his class one day, “Please stand up, any­one who thinks they’re stupid.”

No­body stood up so the teacher said, “I’m sure there are some stupid stu­dents in this class!”

At this point Lit­tle Johnny stood up.

The teacher said, “Oh Johnny! So you think you’re stupid then?”

Lit­tle Johnny replied, “No, I just felt bad that you were stand­ing up on your own.

Have a great week.
