Curling season gets underway

Well, after a delicious supper at the Rumsey Hall last Saturday, I have to say my cooking will pale in comparison.

Well, after a delicious supper at the Rumsey Hall last Saturday, I have to say my cooking will pale in comparison. There were some really delicious salads and the main course is always wonderful as well. It was very well attended. The final count of plate sales was well over 300, so thanks to all who attended as this is a great fundraiser for the Ag Society.

Next on the agenda for the Rumsey Ag Society is the start of the winter curling season. With that in mind, I will give you the schedule planned for this season. The super league will start on Friday, Nov. 7. The open league will start on Thursday, Nov. 13. You can call Ken MacFarlane to enter either of these leagues at 403-368-2128. Claire Krywcun is booking for the women’s league on Wednesdays starting next week as well. I know that Carol Wilkins is starting a new mixed league for anyone free on Tuesday afternoons beginning Nov. 11 at 1 p.m. before junior curling, so give her a call to join up. She is still looking for more players, so don’t miss out on this chance to have some fun. Her number is 403-368-3750

The 4-H beef club has had their organization meeting and is ready for their first weigh day on this Sunday, Nov. 9 at 1 p.m. They have 14 members so far, plus one cleaver, which is a child under the official age of entry. If you are interested in joining, then give Melanie Nelson a call at 403-772- 0000. She will have all the stuff you need to know.

Drop-in has started up again in September. It is held every Wednesday afternoon starting at 2 p.m. This is always a fun afternoon, so stop in if you have the time. The regulars are always looking for new faces.

The Rumsey Library is selling the community calendars for 2015 for $15, so stop in and pick up an awesome gift for yourself or someone special in your circle of family and friends. If you are interested in reading books that might be out of your comfort zone, come in and check out our Book Club. We are meeting this Wednesday, Nov. 5 at 1:30 and try to always meet the first Wednesday of every month. So if you don’t make this one, stop in to get next months’ book choice and start reading.

If you ever have something to put in the paper, just give me a call. I would love to write it in. But for now, I will conclude with the joke of the week, enjoy:

Four expectant fathers pace in a hospital waiting room while their wives are in labor. The nurse enters and tells the first man, “Congratulations, you’re the father of twins.”

“What a coincidence,” the man says, “I work for the Minnesota Twins baseball team.”

A little later, the nurse returns and tells the second man, “you are the father of triplets.”

“That’s really an incredible coincidence,” he answers. “I work for the 3M Corporation.”

An hour later, the nurse tells the third man that his wife has just given birth to quadruplets.

The man says, “I don’t believe it! I work for the Four Seasons. What a coincidence.”

After hearing this, everyone’s attention turns to the fourth guy who has just fainted. He slowly regains consciousness and whispers, “I should have never taken that job at Millennium Computers.”

Have a great week.
