Well, our Men’s Bon­spiel has suc­cess­fully wrapped up for an­other year with some real close games de­cid­ing the fi­nal win­ners. The Ag So­ci­ety mem­bers would like to thank Ernie God­dard and Lori Caweizel for al­ways pre­par­ing the egg mix­ture and cracker crumbs for our oys­ter night. Also a big thank you to all the vol­un­teers that worked in the kitchen all week dur­ing the Men’s Bon­spiel keep­ing the place go­ing. We can’t do it with­out the vol­un­teers and spon­sors who sup­port our curl­ing sea­son. The win­ners of the A Event with a steal of one in the fi­nal end were Tim Prim­rose, Curt McNaughton, Brett Adams and David Web­ster against the Kry­wcum team; Derek, Dal­las, Jim and Jim Tay­lor tak­ing home 2nd in the A event. Thank you to Hodge Brother Truck­ing for spon­sor­ing this event, 3rd in the A went to Ken Ol­son’s team with 4th go­ing to Al Gorman.

In the B Event, Chris Lais­nez’s team from Big Val­ley with Rick Tiz­zard, Sevy Sev­ern and Terry Annabel al­most gave the game away with Chris’s se­cond last shot of the game but he drew in for his fi­nal stone to lay se­cond shot in a crowded house of red! Those red stones were de­liv­ered there by Kevin Helmer, Chad Dettmer, Cory Cheshire and Darcy Wagstaff who then were de­faulted back to 2nd in the B Event. Thank you to Peter­son’s Auto Body for spon­sor­ing this event; 3rd in the B event was taken home by Neil Boles’s team and the 4th go­ing to Eu­gene Nixon team from Bye­moor.

In the C event, Brighton Watts skipped a good game with his dad, Brooks, Phil McBride and Cam Demarre against Kent Holowath’s team of Brady Nel­son, Travis Caweziel and Don Bre­witt. Again, this was also a very close game with the chance to tie the game in the 8th end and Brighton’s fi­nal rock get­ting thrown just a lit­tle light to do the trick. The 3rd in the C event was Troy Wolf and his team with 4th in the C event go­ing to James Dodd. The spon­sor for this event was CPS Trochu. Def­i­nitely had all of us spec­ta­tors on the edge of our seats as we watched to see which way each game was head­ing.

The Ladies Bon­spiel is just a week away so if you have been con­sid­er­ing en­ter­ing just give Brooks or Jackie Watts a call at 403-368-2357 and get your name on the list. It is ex­pected to run from Fe­bru­ary 8 to 11 with the Thurs­day night Oys­ter night on the sched­ule so be sure to take part in the de­li­cious meals avail­able at the con­ces­sion each night and the ban­quet sup­per on Satur­day night from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. Also the mixed dou­bles will be from Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 23 to Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 25 so get your teams en­tered by call­ing Brooks and Jackie. This is a lit­tle dif­fer­ent event as you need a team of 2 with a male and fe­male com­peti­tor and short­ened games of 6 ends so if you are in­ter­ested come and join in the fun and find out what it is all about.

The Mor­rin Fig­ure Skat­ing Club is host­ing their big fundraiser at the Rum­sey Hall this Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 4 fea­tur­ing the band, the “Five of Di­a­monds.” Con­tact any of the fig­ure skat­ing par­ents for tick­ets as it is guar­an­teed to be a lot of fun.

Last but not least, the Rum­sey Drop-In will be host­ing a Coy­ote Derby on Fe­bru­ary 11. If you are in­ter­ested, con­tact me at mp­steen83@gmail.com or 403-368-3820 for more in­for­ma­tion. It should be a fun day.

Quick but corny, en­joy: Two an­ten­nae met on a roof, fell in love and got mar­ried. Their wed­ding cer­e­mony wasn’t fancy. The re­cep­tion, how­ever, was ex­cel­lent

Have a great week.
