The curl­ing sea­son at the Rum­sey rink has come to an of­fi­cial grand end­ing this past week­end with the con­clu­sion of the Mixed bon­spiel. There were 17 teams that en­tered this past week and en­joyed many great games plus all bon­spiel­ing tra­di­tions. The bon­spiel wrapped up on Sat­ur­day night with a de­li­cious ban­quet from the Coun­try Cook­ers. Af­ter the awards were com­pleted, the crowd was en­ter­tained by a great, live band who played old rock from the ‘70’s, ‘80’s and 90’s so there were plenty in the crowd singing along. The Ag So­ci­ety does not rest though be­cause we are quickly get­ting ready for the next event, an evening of im­pro­vi­sa­tional com­edy on April 7. Tick­ets are avail­able through Ian Michie. This prom­ises to be a fun night, bring your friends and en­joy a won­der­ful sup­per be­fore the fun kicks in.

The win­ners of this years Mixed Bon­spiel were the Shelby Prim­rose team spon­sored by Knievel In­sur­ance of Trochu. They beat out Justin Wolf and his team leav­ing them in sec­ond spot in the first event. Third in the First went to Tracy Nel­son’s team and Travis Caw­iezel took home fourth. In the Sec­ond event: Kent Holowath’s team beat out Cam De­maere’s team for first spot. This event was spon­sored by Two Val­ley View An­gus of Rum­sey. Third place went to Adam Leis­chner leav­ing Mike Steen’s team in the fourth po­si­tion. In the Third event, Ken McFar­lane’s team took home first leav­ing James Dodd and his crew in sec­ond spot. In third and fourth place were Brighten Watt’s team and Curt McNaughton’s team re­spec­tively. This event was spon­sored by 3D Patch­work of Rum­sey. The Rum­sey Ag So­ci­ety would like to send out a big Thank You to all the vol­un­teers, spon­sors, care­tak­ers, kitchen work­ers and curlers for mak­ing this another great sea­son. We couldn’t have done it with­out you!

I talked briefly to Shelby and Katie Prim­rose this past Sat­ur­day, they are very ex­cited about head­ing to Le­duc for the Na­tional Cham­pi­onships in Curl­ing on March 24 to 28. I can bet there will be some ex­cel­lent curl­ing to watch and ex­pe­ri­ence for those girls. Good Luck to our home town champs!

Leah Watts and her ladies team from Stet­tler had an un­usual game this past week. They laid an eight en­der dur­ing one of the games in the Ladies bon­spiel. Quite a feat to ac­com­plish. Here’s a gig­gle to share: Jeff ’s date with Suzanne was bad from the start – in short, they loathed each other. For­tu­nately, Jeff had asked his friend to call him so he’d have an ex­cuse to leave if the date wasn’t go­ing well.

When his friend called, Jeff pre­tended to be in shock, “I have to leave,” Jeff said to Suzanne, “My aunt just died.”

“Thank God,” Suzanne replied, “If yours hadn’t, mine would’ve had to.”

Have a great week.
