Trout to be fished in Boehlke pond

.

Endiang Enterprise

Boehlke Pond, located about 10 km northeast of Endiang, was stocked with 5,000 rainbow trout on Friday. The trout were in the size range of 8 – 10 cm and with water levels up they will hopefully thrive very well.

The 8th annual Wade Buchwitz Memorial Gymkhana will be held on July 1 at the Endiang Riding and Roping Arena starting at 11 a.m. Entries will be taken between 7 and 9 p.m. on June 26 by phoning Bobbi at 403-579-2432 or Twila at 403-579-2173.

Enjoy Canada Day in Endiang with gymkhana events, awards ceremony, wiener roast and fireworks.
