The rain was most wel­come this past week­end. Took the dust down on the road and bright­ened up the grass and gar­den plants tremen­dously.

Shayla and Drew had a big shower this past Thurs­day and were ex­tremely grate­ful for all the beau­ti­ful gifts they re­ceived and re­ally en­joyed the en­ter­tain­ment that was pro­vided by the North­west cor­ner ladies. They do such a good job of mak­ing ev­ery­one laugh.

As I promised here are the re­sults from the 4-H Beef Show last week. In the Heifer show, Amanda Holowath won 1st and Van­nessa Rich­mond re­ceived 2nd. In the cow/calf event, Blake Stone­man re­ceived 1st place with Ry­ley Map­pin com­ing in 2nd. Grand Cham­pion Fe­male award went to Amanda Holowath with Re­serve go­ing to Blake Stone­man with his cow and calf pair. In the Steer com­pe­ti­tion, the Grand Cham­pion Steer was won by Cor­byn Stone­man with Re­serve Cham­pion go­ing to Brett Holowath. Se­nior Show­man­ship win­ners were as fol­lows: Ju­niors 1st Ca­dynce Rich­mond, 2nd Brady Map­pin; In­ter­me­di­ates were 1st to Amanda Holowath and 2nd to Ry­ley Map­pin; Se­niors win­ners were Brett Holowath and Van­nessa Rich­mond. In Groom­ing, Se­niors placed 1st Brett Holowath and 2nd Van­nessa Rich­mond; In­ter­me­di­ates went to Cor­byn Stone­man then 2nd to Blake Stone­man; Ju­niors plac­ers were 1st to Brady Map­pin and 2nd to Ca­dynce Rich­mond. The Rate of Gain went to Zoe Avra­menko with an amaz­ing 3.82 pounds per day. Rum­sey also won the Pen of Three with the com­bi­na­tion of Cor­byn and Blake Stone­man’s calves along with Brett Holowath’s calf. There wasn’t a stall dis­play com­pe­ti­tion this year be­cause of the 100th an­niver­sary theme for 4-H all across Canada. The three clubs joined ef­forts in mak­ing the en­tire arena a celebration of 100 years. Our lo­cal club had a very busy week as they com­pleted their show and sale on Mon­day; did their com­mu­nity ser­vice on Thurs­day down in Drumheller when they served burg­ers and clean up for Al­lied’s an­niver­sary BBQ sup­per then helped host a big 100th celebration of 4-H on Satur­day in Row­ley with af­ter­noon ac­tiv­i­ties, pizza night and en­ter­tain­ment pro­vided by Blake Reid and his band who wrote the 4-H song that you might have heard on 910 CFCW re­cently. The pizza was de­li­cious as al­ways and the band was ex­cel­lent so hats off to the or­ga­niz­ers who worked through that misty, cloudy day and as all Al­ber­tans and farm­ers do – put on an ex­tra layer and away we go to en­joy the day.

The Rum­sey S.T.A.R.S Ride is gear­ing up again for this year. It will be held on Au­gust 13 down at the TL Bar ranch. You can pick up your pledge sheets with the Eleanor Rich­mond Clan and Ernie God­dard if you want to get an early start on col­lect­ing.

The Rum­sey Sports Day is also com­ing up quick, on July 14, 15, and 16 so if you are in­ter­ested in play­ing ball on that week­end and I haven’t con­tacted you yet, please give me a call (403-368-3820) to en­ter a team. We would love to have you join in on the fun.
