Well, pre­pare your campers and your ball gloves be­cause the Rum­sey Sports Days are ready to get go­ing this week­end. The first game will be Fri­day night and con­tinue all week­end long with lots of other things to see and do. There will be a pan­cake break­fast both Sat­ur­day and Sun­day morn­ing. A de­li­cious roast beef sup­per on Sat­ur­day night at the hall with a dance to fol­low at the Agriplex. The con­ces­sion will be run by the Grad class of 2019 so make sure you give them some sup­port as well. There will be free camp­ing of­fered all week­end but I sug­gest that you get your campers in early as it usu­ally fills up quickly. Also, please be con­sid­er­ate when park­ing your campers so that more peo­ple can park next to you. I know it is fun to “Cir­cle the Wag­ons” but that takes a lot of space so maybe side by side by side would be best to ac­com­mo­date more RV’s. There is even a hint of rain in the fore­cast and what is a ball tour­na­ment with­out a bit of rain, just kid­ding. I do hope for the con­tin­ued rain and show­ers be­fore this week­end be­cause it sure gets dry out there fast. I know most ev­ery­one has their hay cut and in the process of bal­ing it up so we hope for good crops for ev­ery­one.

Now for those of you who are into a bit more old fash­ion type of sport, there is a Draft Horse Com­pe­ti­tion to be held at the Ver­dant Val­ley Com­mu­nity Cen­tre this Sat­ur­day, July 21 start­ing at noon with the Pony Driv­ing Com­pe­ti­tion. It should be a lot of fun for ev­ery­one.

Next on the Ag So­ci­ety Cal­en­dar is the S.T.A.R.S Ride down at the T.L. Bar ranch on Au­gust 12 start­ing at 9:00 a.m. with a hearty break­fast pro­vided by the Rum­sey Fire­fight­ers and, of course, ev­ery­one is wel­come not just the riders. The riders then will go out on the trail for a cou­ple hours but even if you are not rid­ing a horse there will be no rea­son to head home. Join in the mu­sic, silent auc­tion bid­ding, raf­fle draws and just have an en­joy­able day by the river vis­it­ing with a neigh­bor or two. There will be a great sup­per served by Mary New­ton and her team that is also open to ev­ery­one far and wide so make sure you find the time to come down to the river and en­joy a nice af­ter­noon and sup­port a great cause.

My joke of the week ball re­lated, of course:

A man walks into a bar with a dog. The bar­tender says, “You can’t bring that dog in here.” “You don’t un­der­stand,” says the man. “This is no reg­u­lar dog, he can talk.”

“Lis­ten, pal,” says the bar­tender. “If that dog can talk, I’ll give you a hun­dred bucks. “The man puts the dog on a stool, and asks him, “What’s on top of a house?” “Roof!” replies the dog. “Right. And what’s on the out­side of a tree?” “Bark!” says the dog. “And who’s the great­est base­ball player of all time?” the dog says, “Ruth!” “I guess you’ve heard enough,” says the man. “I’ll take the hun­dred in twen­ties.” The bar­tender is fu­ri­ous. “Lis­ten, pal,” he says, “get out of here be­fore I belt you.” As soon as they’re on the street, the dog turns to the man and says, “Do you think I should have said ‘DiMag­gio’?”

Have a great week, ev- ery­one and see you in town!
