Rum­sey & Dis­trict Reg­is­ter

The Drumheller Mail - - AROUND TOWN - Patty Steen 403-368-3820

What a win­tery week we had, a brand new layer of 4 to 6 inches of snow in places; add the wind in that mix­ture and I know there WAS trou­ble on the roads. I hope the say­ing “In like a Lion, out like a Lamb” will come true.

The Rum­sey Ag So­ci­ety wrapped up their last bon­spiel this past Satur­day with some great games and prizes for all the suc­cess­ful teams. In the first event, Shelby Prim­rose, her mom and dad, Tim and Betty plus sis­ter, Julie brought home first place over Ken MacFar­lane’s team. Third in the 1st went to Mike Steen’s team with Rod Nel­son and his team round­ing out 4th spot in the 1st event. We would like to thank Knievel In­sur­ance from Trochu for spon­sor­ing the first event, with­out our spon­sors, these events just couldn’t hap­pen.

In the sec­ond event, Kent Holowath and his fam­ily came away with first spot steal­ing it away from Curt McNaughton and his team. Mark McNaughton and his team suc­ceeded in third place in the sec­ond event and Merv Ma­tus’s team se­cured fourth spot. The Ag So­ci­ety would like to thank Kent and Jill Holowath with Two Val­ley An­gus just south of Rum­sey. They have a great line of Black An­gus bulls that are avail­able now for your herd. Give them a call and they can set you up, 403-368-3733.

In the third event, Derek Kry­wcum and his fam­ily en­joyed the first place spot as Brighten Watts and his fam­ily came away with sec­ond. James Dodd and his team won third place and Dar­ryl Breve­ton and his team re­ceived fourth. Once again we would like to thank our spon­sor, 3D Patch­work; an­other lo­cal fam­ily, the Sen­gaus’s, great sup­port­ers of the com­mu­nity.

Alan Hamp­ton, our Ag So­ci­ety Pres­i­dent, men­tioned that he no­ticed this year’s bon­spiel had more fam­ily teams than ever be­fore which is en­cour­ag­ing to note be­cause, as the next gen­er­a­tion starts curl­ing in our open league and bon­spiels events, it must mean that there will be con­tin­u­ance to our com­mu­nity as well.

The Open League win­ners this year were Rod and Dana Nel­son, Travis Caw­iezel and Brit­tany Caw­iezel. Thank you to Foun­tain Tire in Drumheller for spon­sor­ing the coats that they re­ceived as prizes. The Ladies League win­ners were Shelby Prim­rose, Tay­lor Olm­stead, Kayla Adams and Amanda Holowath. As you might have read last week, these young ladies also won the High School Pro­vin­cial. They ac­tu­ally set a new record in High School Ladies Curl­ing by win­ning Gold three years in a row! They played against all lev­els of schools, their fi­nal game was against Leth­bridge and they won it hands down. With that kind of cal­iber in open league, I should maybe find out who won sec­ond spot since they should re­ally get some recog­ni­tion as well. The Rum­sey Ag So­ci­ety would like to thank all of our spon­sors, vol­un­teers; spe­cial men­tion to Sandy McNaughton and Jackie Watts; and es­pe­cially all the curlers for mak­ing our bon­spiels suc­cess­ful.

A quick note from Mor­rin Lions, they are spon­sor­ing free hot choco­late and cook­ies at pub­lic skat­ing, Mor­rin Arena on Sun­day, March 19 from 2 til 4 p.m. Con­sider this: Life is like a cam­era, you fo­cus on what’s im­por­tant, cap­ture the good times, de­velop from the neg­a­tive and if things don’t work out – take an­other shot!

Have a great week ev­ery­one.
