The Endmoor floor curlers sent two teams to the Halkirk Valentine’s Day floor curling bonspiel last Thursday. Although they didn’t bring home the top prizes, they said they enjoyed the event.

The teams were: Ken Schultz, Irene Brooker, Ben Kobi, Della Jones, as well as Joe Knowles, Eleanor Schultz, Dave and Shirley Sisley. The Sisleys are new members from Delia.

Congratulations to Kyle Sorensen and Janelle Derr, who were married on Saturday in Stettler. Kyle is the elder son of Jim and Leanne Sorensen. We wish this fine young couple all the best as they start their married life together. The newlyweds plan to reside on their acreage south of Stettler.

Congratulations are also in order for another former Endiang lad. Dallas Mohn and Tracy Saunders were married in Calgary last Saturday. We send best wishes to the young couple for a long and happy marriage. They plan to reside in Calgary.

Lindsey Jones and daughter Charleen are home from to trip to Nova Scotia to visit family members.

Sympathy is extended to Ray and Charlene (nee Woelk) Stirling and all of the Stirling family on the passing of Ray’s mother, Shirley Stirling of Castor. Our thoughts are with the family in their sad loss.

Congratulations to the team of Justin Jones, Jim and Kathy Krautt and Tyler Stulberg on winning the B event at the Coronation Farmers’ Bonspiel on the weekend.

Kirk and Twila Buchwitz returned home Friday from a trip to Las Vegas. They were accompanied by Twila’s brother and his wife and joined by another of Twila’s brothers from the U.S.

Twila’s mother, Sandi Hodgson, looked after the three boys and the Byemoor store while they were away.

The Endmoor mites had three good games in Stettler on the weekend. Leland Dittman, Callie Tucker and Nate Hutton received the heart-and-hustle awards. Way to go!

Dale and Dee Green are home from a weeklong vacation in Jamaica, where they enjoyed a nice break from winter.

Some local folks attended the first of a series of three one-act plays in Castor on Sunday. Former Endiang resident Rhonda (nee Schilling) Steinwand was in the Castor Little Theatre cast.

The Swordsmen atoms team have a busy hockey schedule. They tied Stettler in Big Valley on Sunday. They play at Irma on Tuesday and host Irma in Big Valley on Thursday for the provincial playoffs. If they win that round, they advance to the provincial tournament. They also have league games in Stettler and Innisfail on Friday and Saturday. Good luck, Swordsmen.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Johnny Shields, who passed away Sunday in Hanna. Johnny and his wife, Merna, were well-known in many communities.

Family Day was celebrated locally with free skating and hotdogs and hot chocolate at the arena in Byemoor. Hope everyone enjoyed the day with their families, doing activities of choice.

Humour for the day — To err is human, but to really foul things up, you need a computer.
