BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS — Floor curling in Endiang has wrapped up for another season. On Monday, May 1 members gathered at the Endiang Hall for their last regular afternoon of floor curling. Following the curling all went for a barbecue supper hosted by Ken and Eleanor Schultz at their farm.

The floor curling club in Endiang has had an active season, curling each Monday at the hall, as well as hosting two bonspiels, in addition to participating in several bonspiels in surrounding communities.

On Thursday, May 4 the Endiang club travelled to Botha with two teams. The teams comprised of Ernie Angel, Ken and Eleanor Schultz, Carol Stulberg, Doug Harrold, Mickey Tucker, Eva Nielsen and Joan Morrison played well, bringing home some top prizes to end the season on a high note.

The past few weeks, farmers and ranchers have been busy with branding bees and getting their cattle moved out to pasture. After being delayed by moisture, farmers started crop seeding operations last week. Here’s hoping for a good year for the farmers.

Humour for the day “I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.”
