Biggest Halloween Howl ever!
On Saturday, October 28 the Conexus Convention Centre will host the world acclaimed dueling piano show “Burn N Mahn.” This duo has played all over the world to rave reviews. What makes this show special, however, is that this is the only specialty Halloween themed dueling piano show in the world. The entire evening will come with a Halloween theme. While you do not have to dress up, we expect most will. “Burn N Mahn” will emcee the entire event, handing out prizes and playing fantastic music all night long. If you have a moment Google and listen to them play. You will be impressed!
Couple important things to remember:
• Cost for this fantastic show is just $120 for a table of six (you can add a seat or two for $20/each) or individual tickets for $30.
• Food is not included but will be available
• Tons of costume prizes
Now take note: This event will be sold out at 75 tables.
Best of all…coming full circle…all proceeds from this event go directly to the new Golf Club Clubhouse “Raise the Roof” project. So a great event, a great cause, and just a great evening!
Our evening agenda includes:
Saturday, October 28
6:30 to 8 pm: Happy Hour…orange spine tingling drinks at scary prices
8 pm to midnight: “Burn N Mahn” plays a straight four hour set.
Midnight to close: “Burn N Mahn” encore presentation—don’t miss this!
If you are interested in tickets call quick. You can reach Catherine or Mike at 435-3622 or if you prefer you can email us at email@example.com

2017/18 Communiplex Ice
Communiplex ice is in for the 2017/18 season. It is going to be a record breaker for usage! If you would like to try to book some ice please call the Recreation Office at 435-3622 ASAP.
Minor Hockey continues to grow and grow and grow!
Boy…anyone who says hockey is dying had best not reference Moosomin Minor Hockey in their thesis!
I remember looking back when the Communiplex opened in 1976…Minor Hockey iced eight teams that year. Over the years I have seen anywhere from that number of eight to around a dozen, but this year, I am going to boldly suggest, is a record for the Communiplex as 15 Minor Hockey teams will hit the ice. We have multiple teams in the first five age categories…again I have never seen that in Moosomin!
Boy for someone like myself that means it is going to be a fun winter!
Our teams include: Kids River Hockey, Snowflake White, Snowflake Blue, Squirts White, Squirts Blue, Squirts Red, Novice Blue, Novice White, Atom Rangers, Atom Ice Badgers, Pee Wee Blue, Pee Wee White, Bantam Rangers, Midget Rangers, Female Rangers

Learn to play pickleball
Pickleball was one of the many success stories at the Sportsplex in 2016/17. We had a dedicated group of a dozen or so take the game up from scratch and by the end of the season they were all fantastic at it. The groups would play every Monday and Friday at 1 pm.
So with that we are looking at adding some more to our regular list. If you would like to attend a learn-to clinic, let us know at the recreation office. We supply all the equipment required. Cost for the clinic will be determined by the number of registrations.
Indoor Golf Lessons
So maybe your coming off a summer season where your golf game, well, just sucked and you treated the golf ball more like a hockey puck! Don’t worry we can help. If you are interested in improving your game there is no better place to do it than indoors at the PotashCorp Sportsplex. We have the same simulator machines as the PGA tour uses for their instruction. We will be hosting lessons throughout the winter months for Jr and Adults. No particular skill level is too good or too “not good”!
Just give us a call at the Recreation Office and we will help you out.
Arguably our most successful program of 2016/17 was our Trans-Canada Walking Challenge. We challenged walkers to walk from the Saskatchewan/Manitoba Border the distance it would take to reach the Saskatchewan/Alberta Border. We had close to 100 people take the challenge and around a dozen complete it!
The challenge is back for 2017/18 and is a great way to stay active in the winter on our indoor rubber walking track, and we have some great prizes along the way!
Take the Pacific Plunge!
For those who did successfully complete the Trans Canada Challenge we have the all new “Pacific Plunge” coming in 2017/18. Those who made it from border to border in Saskatchewan will now head west across Alberta and B.C. where , if successful , they will take the plunge into the Pacific Ocean. This distance is quite a bit further than the TransCanada Challenge but honestly I bet we have some fantastic walkers who will defeat the challenge!
No losers in these walks. To be honest we had a ton of walkers out and all of them made huge strides. It really is a wonderful way to stay active over the winter months at just $1 a day, half the price of a cup of coffee!
2017 Opening day PotashCorp Sportsplex
We open the doors on our 2017 season on Wednesday, November 1. We cant wait for another fantastic season!
2017/18 Golf Sponsors
Best Western Hotels are our League Wide Global Sponsors for Golf Leagues at the Sportsplex however we are looking for individual league sponsors, these include:
• Wednesday Night Ladies League
• Thursday Night Men’s League
• Friday Afternoon Northern Nesters (our play on Southern Snowbirders)

If you are interested in sponsoring any of the above league let me know, pretty economical way to promote your business with scorecards and place mats and whatever other ideas you may have!
