1/19/13 -First of all, Happy New Year everybody. I apologize for the
scarcity of updates but a busy social calendar, travel assignments and a couple
of bouts with flus all conspired against me sitting at the keyboard. I am sad to
say that I had to add the name of Peter Zerr to the
MEMORIAM page. Our condolences to the family. The class of '63 is planning a
reunion for this summer. Details can be found on the class
page. I hope you have a great time. As you can see from the hit counter,
traffic has been steady and I expect that we will reach the 50,000 visits mark
by the end of this year! In hockey the West Central Rage juniors have won 11
games this season, after a 6-5 win over the Cypress Cyclones on Friday. That
puts them ahead of 3 other teams in the league! The Tigers have managed 2 wins
so far this season but have 3 games in hand on the team ahead of them with 4
points difference in the standings. They are playing in the Provincials tonight
(Sunday) against the Turtleford Tigers. I'll post the result when I get it. I
have also refreshed the content of the HUMOR page.
Unfortunately I lost a lot of my files when I unexpectedly had to rebuild my
machine. And Humor was one folder I did not back up!
I have added the name of Larry Bohn to the
MEMORIAM page. A link to his obituary is also posted
there, at the bottom of the page. Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family.
In hockey, the Tigers are struggling as they have 1 win in 7 tries. However, the
good news is that they are only 4 points behind the 2 teams ahead of them. The
Rage juniors are doing better having won 7 games plus 2 points for overtime
losses. That puts them 5 point ahead of Prince Albert. I have added another
progress photo of the new Wellness Centre. It is found in the
TOWNSCENES page at the bottom as the very last entry. And, finally, I have
also refreshed the HUMOR page. I may not be able to
update the page before the Christmas Holidays so I want to now wish you and your
family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Richard
It is my sad task to inform you that I have
added 3 names to the MEMORIAM page. All three passed
away during November although I have no further details. Where I was able to
obtain an obituary I have added it to the bottom of the
MEMORIAM page. The 3 additions are Gordon (Jock) Bahm, Joe Gerlinski and
Dwayne (Lumpy) Knorr. Our condolences go out to the families.
