Gadsby weekend ball tournament ends with a social evening

Although weather conditions were a bit muddy with a cool start, sunshine helped make for a great weekend.

GADSBY/WESTWOODS NEWS — Remind me, does three inches of snow equal one inch of rain? If so we’ve had four inches of rain in the form of snow this spring!

Percy and I drove to Medicine Hat on Tuesday, leaving in a snow storm. We stopped at Cactus Corner at the junction of highways 9 and 36. Here the snow turned to rain for the rest of the drive. We enjoyed an overnight visit with Percy’s uncle Alvin and Rose Shearer, going out for Chinese food supper and a drive around the Hat. Lots of construction around the hospital there. But green grass!

The first meeting of the Gadsby Omega Circle for the year took place last Thursday, April 27 at the home of Joanne Hoopfer, in Stettler. Plans are underway for another successful year. Flower planting, fence painting, new benches and Decoration Day services were all part of the evening discussion.

The Gadsby dump is now open on Wednesday afternoons for the summer. Sgt. Penny of the Stettler Police Force attended the recent Gadsby Village meeting. Among the discussions was the 30-km speed signs in Gadsby. The village asks people to please slow down going through the town. This is a criminal offense.

Bob and Lynda Kimball are back from their winter excursions, have set up their RV and plans are underway for the construction of their new home. Welcome Bob and Lynda.

A weekend ball tournament also took place this weekend with 12 teams participating. Campers and RVs began arriving Friday evening, and although weather conditions were a bit muddy with a cool start, sunshine helped make for a great weekend. A social time at the community hall followed on Saturday night, April 29.
