RUMSEY RECORD — Well, it was a good weekend of curling in Rumsey with 33 teams of mixed doubles enjoying some good games, fun times and great meals at our rink. The winners of the A event were Shelley Primrose and Tristen Miller beating out Kim and Kevin Helmer. In the B event, Betty Primrose and Brighten Watts took away the top spot from Katie Primrose and her dad, Tim. In the third event, Amy and Jack Adams won over Brittany Cawiezel and Dallas Krywcum. Lots of people enjoyed good prizes as well and went home happy. Next up will be the regular mixed bonspiel starting on March 7 and running until the 12th. There will be the usual concessions every night as well as the Oyster Feast on Thursday night, March 10 and final banquet on Saturday the 12th. If you want to enter, call Brooks and Jackie Watts at 403-368-2357.

The Big Valley Elks will be hosting their YukYuk night this Saturday, Feb. 27 starting at 5 with cocktails, then a meal and comedy show to follow. I believe you would be able to get tickets from any of the Elk members here in Rumsey or from Big Valley. It promises to be a lot of fun and plenty of laughs for everyone.

The library hosted a craft night this past Wednesday and we had a good time with a good crowd of crafters wanting to learn the skills of felting. We all made some wool/felt dryer balls to speed the drying time at home. There were nine people who came in and I hope the number will grow. I have ordered some more felting needles and they should be in this week, so if you are interested in purchasing one or two, they will be available here. Remember that you can come in just to sit and enjoy your own favorite craft and share ideas. Next month, we will meet at the library on Wednesday, March 16 to learn, refresh or show off our skills of crocheting. The evening will start at 7 p.m. so come and enjoy some crafters fun.

Also on the up and coming calendar is the Morrin Figure Skating Carnival on March 6 starting at 2 p.m. These kids have worked hard all winter and it is time to show off all this talent so come out for a fun afternoon and support the Figure Skating Club.

I hope you enjoy this little chuckle of the day:

After waiting for what seemed like an eternity, the stewardess announces over the intercom that “we’re just waiting for the pilots.”

The passengers look out the window and see two men, dressed as pilots walking towards the plane. Both men are using guide dogs and appear to be blind. There are murmurs among the passengers, and some believe it is a joke.

The men board the plane and go into the cockpit. More concerned murmurs and uneasy chuckles from the passengers. The plane taxis normally to the runway and begins its takeoff. As passengers look out the window, they realize they are nearing the end of the runway. The entire passenger cabin begins screaming but the plane lifts off just before the end of the runway. The passengers calm down and chuckle to themselves, at this point believing that they fell for a joke.

In the cockpit, the pilot turns to his co-pilot and says “You know, one day those people are gonna scream too late and we’re all gonna die!”

Have a great week.
