The Oil Kings held their meeting last week and it was decided that there was enough support to see the team continue in Big Valley. Don’t forget to get in on the game squares for home games. You can contact Alana 403-876-2247 for more information.

There was a good turnout for the “Day and Night Golf” on Saturday. This was the second night golf this year, with the first being a straight night golf. There was a chip off between Paul Jensen and Marion Annabelle, John Palmer and Cliff Ross with Paul and Marion taking first. There was a break between the first 9 holes and night golf for hot dogs and hamburgers.

Not much news as I spent most of the week nursing the flu.
