The west end of Gadsby was humming on the long weekend when nine ball teams and their families gathered for the annual end of summer Gadsby Ball Association Tournament. Reports are in and everyone agrees this was the best year ever, with great sportsmanship and each team playing between eight and 11 games. Kelly Bosma took home the 50/50. Kids games were won by Heather and Brent. There were close to 30 RV trailers parked in and around the grounds and the extended summer weather we are having was perfect.

Winners this year were: In the A division, first place was Pist’n Broke (out of Stettler), second place Limp Sticks & Loose Mitts (Sheldon Watson). In the B division, first went to Mad Skills and second went to The Hitman (both teams of Stettler). And in the C division, Wolf Pak (Gadsby) and second to Bossy’s Brewers (The Bowmans). Special mention to the Bad News Bears, our local team who did their best and had lots of fun.

The Annual Westwoods Bench Fair was a great success with new faces and new entries of varying categories, from the young and old alike. Around 40 people from the surrounding areas enjoyed the-burger-and-corn-on- the-cob supper. All agreed a week night, maybe late August is a good idea for next year.

Smitty and Lavonne took in the Bashaw races last Thursday through Sunday. They watched the pony and chariot races as well as the run off for the big wagons. There were nine wagons, six qualifying for next year’s tour. They also enjoyed the junior bull riding.

Paulette Heer and Jeanne Beisel enjoyed a drive south last Thursday, stopping in Three Hills to have lunch with Paulette’s daughter Christy Wideman as well as visiting Karletta and Wanda, then on to Jackie Boyd’s near Carbon.
