World-Renowned Vienna Boys Choir to perform in Weyburn
Saturday, November 22 will be a date to mark on your
calendar. That evening at 7:30 p.m., the world famous Vienna
Boys Choir will perform at the Cugnet Centre. Ironically, the
performance date also coincides with the celebration of Saint
Cecilia, the patron saint of music. It seems as though she may
have played a part in bringing their gift of music to our city.
The choir was first established after a letter written by
Emperor Maximilian I, was sent out on July 7, 1498. The
letter instructed court officials to employ a singing master,
two basses and six boys to form a choir which was intended
to provide musical accompaniment for the church mass.
The boys both resided and received their training at the
Palais Augarten. The boarding school provides education
and musical training to the boys, which has proven to be
quite beneficiary to the students, as many grew up to have
careers as professional musicians.
Over the centuries, the choir has changed shape and performed under the direction of several composers.
The structure of the choir changed in 1924 to one that is
still in place today. Joseff Schnitt officially founded The
Vienna Boys Choir, after the fall of the Austrian Empire
saw the Hofkapelle (court orchestra) disbanded. At this
time the Vienna Boys Choir evolved into a professional
music group and adopted the blue and white sailor uniform they perform in currently.
The choir is sub-divided into four touring groups. Each
group is named after a famous Austrian composer associated with the choir's history. The four groups are Bruckner,
Haydn, Mozart and Schubert. The boys travel with their
choirmaster and two tutors for approximately 11 weeks of
the academic year. Each of the four choirs split the touring
appearances and Vienna performances equally as to keep
all the boys on a flexible and fair schedule.
Currently the boys' choir duties include Sunday Services
at the Imperial Chapel, appearances at official state events,
concerts in Vienna and abroad, as well as performances at
the Vienna State Opera and Volksopor.
One of the 80 performances each student can expect to
perform in each year has been secured through the Weyburn
Concert Series. Tickets bought in advance are priced at $35
for an adult and $15 for child/student. Tickets will also be
available at the door for $40 and $18 respectively.

Chamber appoints
new General Manager
The Weyburn Chamber of Commerce officially announced Rochelle Wendt as the new General Manager at
the recent farmer appreciation night held on November 4.
Jeff Richards, who was the Chamber's previous General
Manager and Master of Ceremonies at the annual event,
announced Wendt's appointment, beginning immediately.
Rochelle has been working for the past two years as the
Communications and Marketing Director for both the
Chamber of Commerce and the Regional Economical
Development committee.
"Rochelle brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to
the General Manager coming from her role as Communication and Marketing Director" commented Rodney Gill, president of the Weyburn Chamber of Commerce. "Her visions
align extremely well with the strategic direction and mission
statements of both organizations. As such, we are confident
that we will continue seamlessly as we transition from Jeff's
leadership to Rochelle's."
In her new position working as General Manager to the
Chamber and her continued role as the general manger for
the Economic Development Committee, Wendt will work
to achieve the goals set by both organizations. The Chamber
of Commerce aims to foster a strong economic environment in Weyburn and area, and the Economic Development Committee has similarily aligned goals to make a positive impact on the economy by increasing tourism to the
area. Rochelle will combine the achievement in both of her
roles as general manager to two different organizations that
ultimately aim to achieve one strong economy.

Proclaimation signing another
step in the right direction
The signing of the proclamation by Weyburn Mayor, Debra Button and Weyburn
Hospital Foundation representatives on November 3 at city hall, is another one of
the many stepping stones required to build a new hospital.
The proclamation designates November 22 to the 29 as a week dedicated to
focusing on community events and fundraisers all geared to one goal. The goal is to
build a new hospital and fundraise for equipment that will be needed to operate in
this state of the art facility.
The original building quote is estimated to exceed the $100 million dollar range.
It is not unreasonable to expect the actual cost of the building to far exceed that.
With $100 million being used as a estimated total, 80 per cent of the total can be
expected to be covered by government funding. The remaining 20 per cent is what is
needed to be raised by the local community resulting in at least a 20 million dollar
fundraising effort. The recent donation made by Crescent Point Energy in September has seen the foundation reach its $20 million goal but it is important to remember that the foundation has not secured all the monetary donations in their hands
as of yet.
Several of the groups such as, but not limited to, the RMs and the City of Weyburn,
have pledged donations that are spanned over the next 15 years. This leaves the
foundation with a majority of the money not in their hands. The next step seems to
be getting public interest geared towards letting the government know that they
would rather have this new facility built sooner, not later.
The hospital foundation, which was initially developed to fund the building of a
new facility in Weyburn, has not yet decided on the exact location of the hospital.
Once it is built, the foundation will continue to fundraise to provide for much
needed modern day equipment to house in the building. The foundation already
has events in the works including A Valentine's Day Gala and their fifth annual
charity golf tournament on their schedule.

Many gathered to honour those who serve our country and those who lost their lives for our freedom at the
Remembrance Day ceremony, held November 11 at the Cenotaph.
Police warn residents to be more aware
On November 9, Police responded to a local bar regarding a fight. Two males were having a discussion when one of
them punched the other in the face. A 30 year-old male was
arrested for being drunk in public and was lodged in cells
until sober. The other male was taken home by friends. No
charges were laid in the incident.
On November 8, Police responded to an accident in the
east area of the city after a vehicle collided with the rear of a
parked semi trailer. The driver of the vehicle was looking
down trying to determine how to turn his front wipers on
when he collided with the trailer, the air bags deployed during the collision. The 51 year-old male was charged for driving without due care and attention. He suffered minor injuries following the accident.
On November 7, Police responded to an accident in the
200 block of Government Road North. A north bound
vehicle had collided with the rear of another north bound
vehicle. The 33 year-old female driver of the second vehicle
was trapped in her car after the collision, the air bags had
deployed and the doors would not unlock. She was removed
from her vehicle and transported to the hospital with minor
injuries. She was charged with operating an unregistered
motor vehicle.
Also on November 7, Police responded to an accident at
the Highway 39 and Sims Avenue intersection. A north
bound vehicle was waiting to turn right on to Highway 39, a
second north bound vehicle believed the other vehicle was
waiting too long. The 41 year-old male driver went around
the other vehicle on the driver's side and he sideswiped her
vehicle.
Further on November 7, an 18 year-old male attended
Weyburn Police Service and stated that he had been assaulted
by a 25 year-old male. He suffered from injuries to his left
arm, hand and leg and also to his back. Police are investigating the assault.
On November 6, officers on patrol stopped a vehicle
driven by a 31 year-old female. She held a class 7 licence and
was charged for driving in violation of her restriction. Her
51 year-old male passenger was arrested on other outstanding charges from a previous incident and transported to
Weyburn Police Service. The 51 year-old male was charged
with Evading Police and Driving While Disqualified under

curred the previous week. The male had been driving a vehicle and when police had attempted to stop it the driver
had fled at a high rate of speed. The pursuit was called off
when the vehicle left Weyburn heading west on Highway 13.
The accused was later released from custody and will be
appearing in court later this month.
Also on November 6, at approximately 9:00 p.m. a 16
year-old female was walking to her vehicle which was parked
in the parking lot of the 10 Block of Second Street, just
north of the Royal Hotel. The victim was approached by a
male, described as younger in age, wearing dark pants and
clothing. The suspect attacked the victim, striking her on the
head with a blunt object while forcing her into the back seat
of her own vehicle. The victim was able to fight off the attacker and escape, fleeing on foot to the Police Station. The
victim was treated in hospital and later released to the safety
of her family. There are no suspects at this time and the
Weyburn Police Service continues to investigate. The
Weyburn Police Service would like to remind women in our
community to be conscious of their personal safety. A few
suggested safety tips are:
• Be aware of your surroundings,
• Travel in pairs or groups whenever possible
• Stay in well lit areas
• Check your vehicle prior to getting into it
The Weyburn Police Service is looking for witnesses or
any information regarding this terrible assault. If you witnessed anything in the area of the 10 block Second Street or
know anything regarding this crime, please call the Weyburn
Police Service at 306-848-3250 or call Crime Stoppers.
On November 5, Police received a complaint of an intoxicated male asking another male to buy him a beer. Officers
located the man on Third Street South and he was taken to
his residence. No charges were laid.
On November 4, Police received a complaint from a witness at the Weyburn Court House. A 30 year-old female
complained that she was being harassed by a 32 year-old
male who was involved in a court case with her. An officer
gathered further information from witnesses about the incident. The investigation resulted in no further charges being
laid.
Also on November 4, an 11 year-old male youth attended
Weyburn Police Service to report a dog running at large.
The dog in question had previously bitten another person.
A charge of allowing a dog to run at large was laid under the
bylaw with a scheduled court appearance later this month.
Further on November 4, a 32 year-old female reported
her two sons (ages 8 and 4) missing. Officers spoke to the 38
year-old father, who wasn't sure where they had gone.
Weyburn Fire Department, Weyburn EMS, local cab companies and gas stations were notified and helped look for
the children. Approximately an hour later, a further search
of the residence found the kids safely sleeping in their beds.
On November 3, an officer stopped a vehicle for a traffic
offence. The 36 year-old male driver was found to be a disqualified driver. He was charged for driving while disqualified. His vehicle was also seized and impounded for 30 days.
If you or anyone you know has any information regarding any of the above crimes, or any other serious crime,
police are encouraging you to contact Crime Stoppers at 1800-222-Tips(8477), or to contact the Weyburn Police Service at 306-848-3250.

We need more snow!
By Helen Waller
Now I know what you are thinking and if it's anything like
what ran through my head when I first heard this…it's not
even rated PG13. Best to keep those sorts of thoughts in
your head, especially around young children. All I can say is
that the old saying "Out of the mouths of babes" certainly
covers this one.
I just got home from an hour drive home, which still did
not give me enough time to unthaw from my time spent
outside earlier. I had come to this conclusion. I hate winter
and I hate being cold.
The snow falling was not helping with either of these two
things going away anytime soon. Upon arriving home, my
little one was standing beside me at the window peering out
at the snow falling with a look of disgust that matched mine. "I know ….it sucks! Winter is
here" is what I said to reassure him that I felt his pain. His response made the room a little
chillier.
"No mom, it sucks there isn't ENOUGH snow out there for me to push into piles. We
need more snow."
It had become apparent that his look of disgust was for a completely different reason and
let me tell you, it was nothing compared to the look that was now on his father's face nor the
answer that followed.
"We don't @#@%^ need any #@#$ more %$%# snow". (Try Google translator with that
one).
Apparently the higher up your view from the window was, the worst that the weather got
or so it seems. Made me think…..all three of us were looking at exactly the same thing.
Snowflakes falling. That's it…snow falling? How did something so simple, get such a wide
range of reactions and who was right? Well, I got to thinking and realized, we were all right.
We were right in how we felt about it. With that said, how far was being right going to get us?
I figured it just suits me best to take the advice of the happiest one in the bunch. I mean, we
live in Saskatchewan. It snows and snows and snows (and melts the next day, only to snow a
few more inches the next.) Guess what? There's not a thing we can do about it. So why waste
our time and energy fighting and complaining about something we have no control over.
Perhaps it just may be time to take on a different perspective on the situation. Looks like
the best view just happens to stand at 3'5" tall. This little guy just gave me a big lesson. There
are a whole lot of things we cannot control in life, and Saskatchewan weathers just happens
to be on the top of the list it seems. The one thing we can do, is control how we choose to
look at it.
So rather than watch from my window, I decided to get bundled up and join the kids
outside. That's when it hit me. The Remembrance Day Service that left me so physically cold
earlier that day, now warmed my heart. This is what they had fought for. Our freedom to
enjoy our lives no matter what the weather may bring.
Thought for the week
"To be prepared for war is one of the most effective
means of preserving peace."
George Washington
Watch, Lest We Forget
This past week held Remembrance Day, and services were held all over the country. For
days and weeks, we have heard and seen the encouragement "Lest we forget." Unfortunately,
the sentiment all too often may be left with the poppy at the cenotaph on 11, 11, 11.
However, if there is an emergency like the murder of two soldiers, suddenly we remember
again...for a while, until it is safe again.
It seems that our attention span is decreasing all the time. While it may take a while to get
our attention, it then lapses in short order. This also seems to be the case for faith. Perhaps,
more people have religion rather than faith. Religion is performing a duty, while faith is
responding to a gift. Could this be part of the problem with society in Remembrance Day
ceremonies. Instead of responding to the gift of freedom which the veterans have won for us,
we dutifully attend the ceremonies, (pay our dues) albeit fewer each year, (especially if it is a
long weekend), feeling that this is what we are to do. Some of the advertising this year has
emphasized remembering veterans all year, and this is a very important suggestion. If not, we
may fall into the trap of totally forgetting.
The Gospel Lesson read in some churches last Sunday included cultivating the attitude to
be ready. "Watch, for you know not the hour nor the day." How can we be "ready" all the
time? Just asking that question shows that we are not prepared to do this. A rewording of the
question may actually be, "How little do I have to do?" This "watching" cannot be like
children or spouses who quickly clean the house before a parent or spouse returns. Cultivating a regular approach to "cleaning" will avoid this worry. So also with our attitude towards
freedom and worship of Christ. Living this attitude every day brings life to us that nothing
else can.
What this means is that we offer to serve others. (Humility is not something we seek, but
something that others recognize in us when we serve.) We do not offer to serve to receive the
awards, but because of a sincere desire to help others. One of the worst things to have
happened is the giving of volunteer awards. The splashy volunteer work gets recognized while
the moment by moment every day tasks are missed. When ignored in the place of "spectacular" events, the regular is seen as unimportant. Actually, the regular is more important.
Cooking a fancy meal brings happiness to people only if the pots used were clean, and the
meal was served on clean dishes. Which is more important, cooking a gourmet meal or
washing the dishes? Which is more important, having a photo opportunity on Remembrance Day or daily serving as we are able? Which is more important, Televangelists in
buildings holding thousands, or faithful members of local congregations who regularly
serve? As we "watch", let us serve in the small ways so that Jesus is lifted up in the world as its
Savior. As we remember, let us show the love of Jesus to others, especially the "different", to
avoid the crumbling of society into battlefields of sects and cliques.
The Rev. Martin Olson, Zion Lutheran Church, Weyburn
Be careful how you choose
By Linda Wegner
Ah, elections. Our American friends and neighbours recently elected politicians to fill
hundreds of seats in the United States House of Representatives and the United States
Senate. Here in our city we're going to the polls this week to elect six persons to sit on our City
Council. Though there are vast differences in the number of candidates and seats to fill, as
well as a number of other issues, what really matters is that we have the privilege and the right
to choose who will represent us in national, provincial/state or municipal governments. It's
a choice that millions of people around the world have fought for and died to have. Elections and government are the basis for many a joke and to deny that there are problems is
folly; no system is perfect. Having said that, I say democracy is to be preferred to anything else
I've heard about.
There are lot of other imperfections in the electoral process, as well. To start with, not one
candidate is faultless. Even if they were, we the voters don't have the ability to see the future
nor to choose with unerring wisdom the person or persons who will do the best job. As I and
my fellow citizens go to the polls this Saturday, I trust that we will have carefully pondered
our decision. Trouble is, even that isn't an absolute guarantee.
While there is no human institution without flaws and faults, each of us has the option to
make right choices regarding eternity. The administration of earth's laws and policies might
not stand the test of integrity and politicians may betray constituents but we have the
promise that the word of God is unfailing.
"Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven (stands firm as the heavens)." Psalm
119:89 Amplified

‘Art for Orphans’
exceeding expecations
Packed with love
Mei Chen at her
orphanage in China
after receiving a 'CARE
PACKAGE' of gifts
and clothes as part
of the rescue effort.
The art project to save a
Chinese Down Syndrome
orphan has raised over
$2,500 in the first 11 days.
The 21-day project features
the on-line auction of an
original oil painting a day by
Montmartre resident,
Christalee Froese.
"I am simply blown away
by the generosity around
me," said Froese. "People
from Canada, the USA and
New Zealand have bid,
which just goes to prove the
power of the story of one
little Chinese orphan named
Mei Chen."
The complete sale price of
the paintings will go to Mei
Chen's adopting family, Bill
and Kelly Schultz from Wisconsin, USA.
Froese identified the orphan in China when she
went to adopt her own
This painting will go up for auction on
November 16 at www.21days2joy.wordpress.com .

daughter and was told that
no one was coming to adopt
Mei Chen. Mei Chen's adoptive mother, Kelly Schultz,
has been overwhelmed by
the response to the effort to
raise enough money for her
family to travel to China this
spring to rescue Mei Chen
from her orphanage.
'Mei says thank you everyone! And her new Mommy
and Daddy are so so thankful that sooo many people
love our little girl so much! I
am in tears at the outpouring of love by everyone for
one very special little girl!"
wrote Schultz on the Art for
Orphans bidding site
(www.21days2joy.wordpress.com).
The Art for Orphans auc-
tion ends on November 21
with a special announcement.
The 21st painting will be the
'Buyer's Choice' as Froese will
paint whatever is requested.
"I know some people
missed out on paintings they
wanted, or they have something in mind that is special
to them, so I'm going to paint
whatever the highest bidder
on November 21 wants,"
said Froese.
Bidding starts today on
Painting #21 - Buyer's
Choice!
Current art can be viewed
at Sister's Bistro in
Montmartre, Sask.

Saskatchewan staying strong:
Fastest job growth and lowest
unemployment in Canada
Changes to organ and tissue
donor legislation to improve
transplant service in Sask
Saskatchewan's strong economy has again produced the fastest rate of employment growth
and lowest unemployment rate in Canada, according to new figures released by Statistics
Canada.
"Our strong economy continues to give confidence to employers who, in turn, are deciding to expand their workforce," Minister responsible for Immigration, Jobs, Skills and Training Jeremy Harrison said. "Thanks to the hard work of Saskatchewan people, there are
71,700 more people employed today than there were in 2007."
The latest report from Statistics Canada shows that employment in October 2014 was up
by 3.5 per cent over last October with Saskatchewan employers creating 19,700 more jobs.
In total, there were 576,200 people employed in the province, the highest ever for the
month.
The province's unemployment remained unchanged at a low of 3.5 per cent (seasonally
adjusted), the lowest among the provinces and well below the national rate of 6.5 per cent.
"We have maintained the lowest unemployment rate in the country for the past 23
months," Harrison said.
On a month-over-month comparison, there were 2,300 more jobs (seasonally adjusted)
in October over September.
Other highlights:
• Unemployment in major urban centres remains low. Regina CMA recorded its unemployment rate at 3.0 per cent (seasonally adjusted), the lowest among CMAs, while Saskatoon CMA's unemployment rate of 4.4 per cent (seasonally adjusted) was second lowest.
• Female employment reached a historical high of 264,300 in October 2014.
• There were 14,000 more full-time jobs and 5,700 part-time jobs created compared to
last October.
• Major employment gains were recorded in accommodation and food services (+5,400),
construction (+5,100) and forestry, fishing, mining, oil and gas (+3,600) from a year ago.
• Private sector employment was up 14,500 and self-employment up 8,200 from October 2013.
New legislation governing organ and tissue donations will equip Saskatchewan to
respond more quickly and greater flexibility to growing demand for transplants.
The changes contained in The Human Tissue Gift Act, 2014, will modernize outdated
legislation and provide the ability to make and update regulations. This could eventually
allow the health system to purchase corneas from outside Saskatchewan, enabling more
of the approximately 100 Saskatchewan residents typically waiting for a cornea transplant to receive the life-changing procedure in months rather than years.
"We have the opportunity to remove impediments that delay live-saving or life-enhancing transplants for Saskatchewan," Health Minister Dustin Duncan said. "We owe it to
those who face a decline in their health while they wait for a transplant."
The need for organ and tissue transplants in Saskatchewan far exceeds the number of
donors.
"These changes will help us get much-needed organs and tissue to our patients, and will
have a huge impact not only on their own lives but on also the lives of their family
members," Saskatchewan Transplant Program Director Diane Shendruk said. "This is a
positive step forward for transplant services in our province."
The new Act will enable Saskatchewan to stay current with changing practices in
Canada and internationally, in order to better serve patients.
Prairie Sky donates
Pioneer Woman Sculpture
receives $10,000 donation
Members of the Prairie Sky Coop met with representatives of the Pioneer Woman Sculpture Committee recently to present the ladies with a cheque for $10,000 towards their cause.
The committee was formed as the result of a dream shared by seven individuals. Ross
McMurty, Isabelle Butters, Mayvis Goranson, Stan Runne, Leo Leydon, Janet Linnell and
Heather van der Breggen have joined forces to make this sculpture a reality. The sculpture is
being created by husband and wife team, Shirley and Don Begg. Don has studied sculpture
and bronze casting throughout Canada and the United Sates. His previous pieces have
depicted wildlife, historic figures, western scenes and the oil and gas industry . Shirley works
along side her husband, researching and visualizing the final sculpture. Once created, the
Pioneer Woman Sculpture will be placed along the Souris River at a location yet to be
decided. It will serve as a reminder to all, of the gallant women who lived, loved and sacrificed
so that we may inherit the life we now enjoy.
For more information regarding the sculpture, contact Ross McMurty at (306) 8480444. The committee is appreciative of any further donations they may receive and encourage residents to share their story of a pioneer woman with them by calling Jan Linnell at
(306)842-5987.
General manager, Don Kraft, centre, presents Pioneer Woman Sculpture committee member, Mayvis Goranson, with a cheque for $10,000 from Prairie Sky
Co-op. The donation will go towards the sculpture which will find a home on
the banks of the Souris River. Pictured, (l-r) Pioneer Sculpture committee member Stan Runne, Prairie Sky Co-op member relations manager, Jerry Ponto, Don

And now the moment you've all been waiting for.
After a gruelling 20-week regular season from which the
Saskatchewan Roughriders emerged at 10-8, the 2014 Canadian Football League Playoffs are now at hand.
The bar has been raised so high in Saskatchewan for the
past decade that, to me, the regular season has become somewhat tedious. As far back as June we found ourselves daydreaming about what the playoffs would bring, and in what
way the Roughriders would have to defend their 2013 championship.
Now we know, and it's infinitely thrilling that the time is
now!
Saskatchewan's 24-17 home win over Edmonton this past
frigid Saturday night accomplished a lot of things: it snapped
a five game losing skid, showed the team they can win without Darian Durant, assured an above .500 record and guaranteed the Riders would stay in the West Division for the
postseason rather than crossover into the East. It sets up a
meeting between the Riders and Eskimos Sunday at Commonwealth Stadium in the Western Semifinal (3:30 pm Sask
time, TSN, 620 CKRM).
"Whether it was East or West, the team was prepared to
go either but it's always nice to stay in the West," said a
content Rider coach Corey Chamblin after the game. "For
us we've played Edmonton the most the past few weeks and
there are some known strengths and weaknesses in the opponent. In terms of prep, it's good to know the opponent
you're playing. There are some base things to study from this
game and they put their best foot forward to win this game."
Indeed it was impressive how hard Edmonton tried to
win Saturday night, given the fact they really had nothing to
play for. It's true they had the ability to affect who they'd
play in the WSF, but that seemed to be the last thing on
their mind.
Meanwhile the Rider coaches were tearing their hair out
doing advance scouting last week for a possibility of four
opponents in the first round of the playoffs: Edmonton,
Hamilton, Montreal or Toronto.
Now they know it's the Eskimos and getting past them
won't be an easy task. Edmonton's 12-6 record represents
the biggest single-season turnaround in franchise history after going 4-14 last year. They are also #1 on offense and #2
on defense going into the playoffs. How can you be better
than that?
The thing you'll be hearing about the most this week is the
quarterbacks. Top pivots Mike Reilly and Darian Durant
were held out of the final regular season game by the Eskimos and Riders respectively, and we're told both were due
to injury. Let the gamesmanship begin.
"Our quarterback was really hurt," Chamblin smiled.
"Regarding Mike Reilly, I think that's just a ruse. It doesn't
matter who their quarterback will be. We'll have to be ready
to play."
Of course Darian Durant hasn't played since September 7
due to an elbow injury and he's slowly been worked into practice the past couple of weeks. In Durant's absence the past
three weeks, 41-year old veteran Kerry Joseph has filled in.
"Kerry did a good job (Saturday night)," Chamblin continued. "When he broke the run, he looked like Darian.
He's starting to look like a playoff quarterback. Whether it's
#4 or #5 going in the playoffs, or both, we'll be ready."
The question is; which one will it be? Wouldn't the Eskimos like to know. I expect this will be strung out all week,
long enough for the Rider Nation to snap up tickets in
advance for Sunday's playoff game at Commonwealth Stadium.
In case you hadn't heard, your attendance is requested.
"A lot of things have gone against us but I think the tide is
turning for us," Chamblin said optimistically. "I think it
helps with prep playing Edmonton again but I'm excited to
get there and we'll have our fans with us."

Two person stick
Jones/Labatte named
curling - give it a try! to All-Star Team
If you enjoy curling and don't want to put stress on your
body, try 2 Person Stick Curling. You are invited to a Curling Clinic to learn to use the curling stick. The curling clinic
will be held on November 19 and 26 at the Weyburn Curling Club starting at 1:00 pm. Contact Frank Kaip at 306842-2084 or Glenn at the curling club at 306-842-2236 to
register. You won't want to miss this opportunity to participate in the sport that you love!
Two Person Stick Curling is a relatively new sport which
provides challenge and excitement for people of all ages on
an equal and competitive basis and in a social atmosphere.
Stick curling is also appropriate for people with physical
disabilities such as knee, back, heart, shoulder, elbow, wrist,
hip, ankle or foot problems. The rocks are delivered with a
curling stick from a standing or sitting position (i.e. wheelchairs) enabling everyone to participate competitively.
In stick curling there are two curlers per team, who deliver
their rocks with delivery sticks, with each team member delivering from opposite ends of the sheet of ice. Sweeping is
allowed only from the hog line to the back of the house at
the playing end. Two curlers, one from each team, alternately deliver six stones each per end, while their teammate
skips that end. The roles are then reversed and the partners
deliver the stones back. No stone may be removed from play
until the fourth stone of each end. Games are six ends and
take about an hour to play.
2 Person Stick curling and regular curling is an event at
the Saskatchewan Senior Fitness Association (SSFA) - 55+
Provincial Games. You may contact Margaret Gailing-Stepp
at 306-842-4807 for more information about the 55+
Games.

Two Weyburnite athletes have been nominated to the
CFL West Division All-Star Team. Centre Brett Jones of
the Calgary Stampeders and Guard Brendon LaBatte
of the Saskatchewan Roughriders were both given the
nod to the team.
The Stampeders selected Jones in the second round of
the 2013 CFL Canadian Draft. Jones, a former Regina
Ram, is also Calgary's nominee for the CFL's Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman this year.
LaBatte is in his third season with the Riders and earned
his sixth consecutive Division All-Star nomination. He
previously was selected to the West Division in 2012 and
2013, and the East Division team in 2009, 2010 and
2011, as a member of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
The league awards will be presented on Thursday, November 27 in conjunction with Grey Cup week in B.C.
