What a wel­come from Old Man Win­ter this past week! I hope ev­ery­one made it through and this week’s weather pre­dic­tions seem a lit­tle gen­tler. I think we have a good snow cover to start the win­ter so the hay fields, peren­ni­als and pas­tures should be well pro­tected un­til spring.

The Fall Sup­per on Sat­ur­day night was a huge suc­cess with fam­i­lies com­ing from near and far to en­joy the de­li­cious turkey and all the fix­ings. The se­lec­tion of pies was amaz­ing mak­ing it hard for any­one to pick only one piece.

Thank you to all the vol­un­teers who cooked tur­keys, made sal­ads and pies, worked hard in our new kitchen to serve and clean. It was a suc­cess­ful night for the Ag So­ci­ety and we thank ev­ery­one for their con­tri­bu­tion.

The Ag So­ci­ety has started sell­ing tick­ets for the chance to win a Drone and mini-ipad val­ued at $2200.00. With a limit of 750 tick­ets be­ing sold over the win­ter. We will have the draw at the Spring Fling so you have all win­ter to pur­chase as many as you like. They will be avail­able at the curl­ing rink, with any Ag mem­ber and at the li­brary. Also the Ag so­ci­ety is look­ing for new mem­bers to join as di­rec­tors this De­cem­ber so con­sider sign­ing up and see what is hap­pen­ing be­hind the scenes through­out the year. The Christ­mas Mar­ket will be the next event held at the hall on Sat­ur­day, Novem­ber 25, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We have over 20 ven­dors and crafters com­ing to the Mar­ket so it should be a great day to get your Christ­mas shop­ping un­der­way.

The Su­per League has started with 12 teams hit­ting the ice on Fri­day night. They will con­tinue to play ev­ery Fri­day night with a cou­ple week­ends of curl­ing as well so come in and watch some good curl­ing, en­joy a meal at the con­ces­sion and cheer on your fa­vorites.

The Ladies Open league started on Tues­day, Novem­ber 7 and will con­tinue all win­ter as well, the Open league will start on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 9, call Rod Nel­son at 403-368-2401 if you have a team that would be in­ter­ested in join­ing or if you would like to be put on the spare list.

The Ju­nior curl­ing will start on Novem­ber 21 run­ning from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. ev­ery Tues­day from then on. Give Brooks Watts a call (403-368-2357) if you have a young one who might be in­ter­ested in join­ing. Quote for the week: Whoever said, “Do the job right the first time and you’ll never have to do it again.” Never shov­eled snow in a Cana­dian win­ter. – Bob and Doug MacKen­zie.

Have a great week, ev­ery­one.
