BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS — Byemoor Curling Club’s mixed bonspiel wrapped up on Saturday. A pair of Rumsey teams dominated the action. The Phil McBride team of Rumsey (Phil and Dianna McBride, Cam DeMaere and Jackie Friedley) won the A event over the John Schofer team of Byemoor.

In the B event it was the Travis Cawiezel team of Rumsey over the Krissy Jack rink of Byemoor.

C event winners were as follows: 1st Eugene Nixon, 2nd Eldon McCrindle, 3rd Brad Mappin and 4th Jordanna Bosma.

All the C event winners were from Byemoor with the exception of Jordanna Bosma from Botha.

This event concludes curling for the season in Byemoor. Thanks to all who participated and supported the bonspiel. Hope to see everyone back in action next year.

Keep in mind Farm Safety Day at the arena in Byemoor is on April 8. Hosted by the Byemoor 4-H Beef Club the event is open to all youth. It is easy for youth to pick up bad safety habits and sometimes a person doesn’t get a second chance this promises to be a very worthwhile workshop. The $20-fee covers lunch, snacks and prizes as well. Call 403-323-5000 or 403-884-2686 to register.

Please note the date of the Byemoor Community Club annual general meeting has been changed to Monday, Mar. 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the Byemoor hall. Be sure to attend and perhaps help out on a committee.

Keep in mind the Byemoor Bull-a-rama is on April 14 at the arena in Byemoor. There will be a mini trade show in conjunction with the Bull-a-rama. To book a table to market your wares call Paige Jones at 403-876-2923.

We send happy 65th birthday wishes to a former Endiang resident, Deb (Boehlke) Grover of Olds. Her milestone birthday was on March 18. We hope you enjoy those government cheques, Deb.

Sympathy is extended to Clint and Tammy Walker and family on the passing of Tammy’s mother Karen Turner of Castor. Karen passed away on March 14 at the age of 74 years. Our thoughts are with the Walker and Turner families in their loss.

Friends of Vicki Ballinger will be pleased to know Vicki got a weekend pass from the Red Deer hospital so was able to spend this past weekend at her Stettler home. Vicki has been a patient at the Red Deer hospital for nearly five months. Wishing you continued progress on your recovery, Vicki.

A warm and windy day on Saturday had the snow melting at record speed. As a result it was “water, water everywhere.” Frozen culverts caused water to go over roadways and flood some areas.

Humour for the day “Silence is golden. Unless you have children, then silence is suspicious.”
