Girls win provincial curling gold, minor ball needs players

RUMSEY RECORD -- Well, have you recovered from the time change over the weekend?

RUMSEY RECORD — Well, have you recovered from the time change over the weekend? I always say this one is the hardest one, losing an hour like that. Thankfully, it is warm and sunny outside, make getting up earlier easier.

The mixed bonspiel wrapped up on the weekend with a delicious supper. There were 21 teams in this year, which is a good number though the organizers always will welcome more. At the banquet, the ag society also congratulated the junior curlers for a good season and handed out various awards to the kids. A big congratulations goes to the young ladies, Katy Primrose, Amy Adams, Shelby Primrose and Kayla Adams, who went to the high school provincial curling competition a week ago. They came home with gold again. Good coaching, Betty! The ladies’ open league also wrapped up on Saturday night with the top award, donated by Dave Silberstein, going to Cindy Krywcun, Leah Watts, Lisa Rosland and Michelle McNaughton. The open league winners were Derek Krywcun, Claire Krywcun, Katy Primrose and Melitta Sorenson.

The Morrin Lions will be hosting an Easter Bingo on Wednesday, March 23, doors open at 6 p.m. It will be held at the Morrin Community Hall.

Sandy McNaughton asked me to get the word out about the possibility of having mninor ball teams in Rumsey again this year. The enrollment numbers are getting smaller as our kids are growing older and the next bunch just aren’t big enough to hold that bat yet, so she was wondering what teams could be put together this year. Please give her a call at 403-368-2172 if you are interested in enrolling your child in ball this year. She would like to hear from as many people as possible before March 18, which is the end of this week, so don’t delay.

The Rumsey library will be hosting a craft night this Wednesday, March 16, where we will learn, refresh or just enjoy the skills of crocheting with our resident experts guiding us along so come and join us at 7 p.m. Don’t worry if you are late; heck, I’m always late; we will welcome all interested.

The Verdant Valley garden club will be hosting a Horticultural Workshop on Saturday, April 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in their community hall. Please register by April 8, there is a poster in the Post Office with more details and who to call to register.

I hope you enjoy this one:

A proud and confident genius makes a bet with an idiot. The genius says, “Hey idiot, every question I ask you that you don’t know the answer, you have to give me $5. And if you ask me a question and I can’t answer yours, I will give you $5,000.” The idiot says, “Okay.” The genius then asks, “How many continents are there in the world?” The idiot doesn’t know and hands over the $5. The idiot says, “Now me ask: what animal stands with two legs but sleeps with three?” The genius tries and searches very hard for the answer but gives up and hands over the $5000. The genius says, “Dang it, I lost. By the way, what was the answer to your question?” The idiot hands over $5.

Have a great week.
