BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS — Byemoor was a busy place over the weekend with the annual Boar’s Cup hockey tournament action. As always, a fun time was had with this event.

In the A event the Piggy Smalls were victorious over the Ham Solos with a final score of 8-5. The B event winner was the Hambo Slices team over the Uncle Porksters by a score of 7-4.

Byemoor School junior high students enjoyed a couple days skiing in the mountains on Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 13-14. They stayed in Canmore and took to the slopes at Mount Norquay and Nakiska. Gwen Keith and Rhonda Maginn were the chaperones for the ski trip.

Students from the Byemoor School participated in the CARA curling bonspiel in Stettler on Thursday, Feb. 16.

Congratulations to the team of Ryder Buchwitz, Laurel Hutton and Ryley and Brady Mappin on bringing home a bronze medal.

Justin Jones and Eugene Nixon from the Byemoor Curling Club offered instruction at the local curling rink to the students and also assisted with coaching at CARA. It’s nice to see a younger generation of curlers coming up.

Lynnette Schellenberg and Sue Rausch celebrated their 60th birthdays with a vacation to Panama, where they reported a fantastic time. When they turned 50 they visited Jamaica. What are your plans for your next birthday milestone, girls?

The Endmoor floor curling club sent two teams to Halkirk for the bonspiel on Thursday, Feb. 16. Those participating included Doug Harrold, Dave and Carol Sisley, Eleanor Schultz, Ernie Angel, Joan Morrison, Mickey Tucker and Carol Stulberg.

The local floor curlers enjoyed the Halkirk hospitality and the Valentine-themed décor of the Halkirk Senior’s Centre.

Several volunteers of the Byemoor Community Club worked shifts at the Jackpot Casino in Red Deer last week. Thanks to all those who worked, the funds will go towards operation of the community hall.

Anita Mappin reported spotting a pair of Canada Geese on Feb. 18. That seems awfully early for geese to be back.

We send birthday greetings out to Ervin Bossert on the occasion of his 85th birthday on Feb. 24. Congratulations on this special milestone Ervin and best wishes for many more.

Congratulations to the boys playing hockey on the Delburne Outlaws Bantam team who won the Zone 7 Provincial’s banner on the weekend in Delburne.
