Halkirk ladies compete in triathlon

Sandra Johnson joined with Denise Marquart, Tammy Hildreth and Tina Ensign of Castor to compete in the Ladies Sprint Triathlon at Strathmore last weekend.

The race consisted of a 500-metere swim, 20-kilometer bike ride and five-kilometer run.

Congrats to Sandra who placed 22nd out of 281 competitors, completing the race in 1 hour, 23 minutes and 16.2 seconds.

The Castor Horse Club held its horse show at the Bull-a-rama grounds in town on August 21. There were 40 horses and riders entered in 61 classes comprising of four age groups from across central Alberta.

The show was organized by Sheryl Darnell with a whole group of dedicated volunteers. The main judge was from Edmonton with Sheila Whiteside as trail judge.

Everyone enjoyed the good weather and the excellent facilities. Congratulations to the winners whose names are listed elsewhere on B!.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Susan Bedson who recently moved to Coronation. She is a sister to Dora Morasch and a sister-in-law to Joyce and Paul Neilson. Services were held Friday in Brownfield.

Elks lodge members are busy preparing for their annual Bull-a- rama this coming Saturday at the north end of Main St. The local based entertainment starts at 4 pm and includes a jousting demonstration, ladies’ calf scramble, kids wild pony races, local clown-Johnny D, music by Paper bag skirts plus the main event. Live band music by Domino and fireworks at dark conclude the evening events.

Dale and Melody Kent, Dwight and his son, Curtis Kent were joined by the Bob and Rick Kent families for a weekend campout at Ferry Point near Rosalind. This park is near where Dale and Dwight were raised.

Alison, Ryan and Katelyn Dahmer spent part of last week at Gull Lake, Saskatchewan visiting with Ralph and Norma Stock.

Kent and Evelyn Johnson, accompanied by Alec and Deanna MontBriand from Fort Qu’Appelle, Sk, spent the past week fishing at Slave Lake. Alec is Evelyn’s brother.

A sure sign that summer is almost over is when the kids go back to school Sept. 1 and the hall board Bingos begin their new season Sept. 9.
