Thank-A-Retailer Sharpe’s Crop Services
A huge thank you to Hayley and the staff at Sharpe’s for undertaking this project and for keeping everyone on track and a BIG, BIG thank you to everyone who supported the project and played time and time again over the last month.
We have a dozen projects on the go at Bradley Park so the $15,000 in funding is huge for us to help try to get everything done this year…honestly this money is massive for us!
But even more than that the community support parks and recreation get from this community and area is astonishing. Every time I go to a rec meeting recreation professionals marvel at how this community supports our initiatives. While the $15,000 is amazing…even more important to me is the show of community support once again for Parks and Recreation. Clearly our business community not only plays a key role but are the heart and sole of our capital projects…but to see…well it seemed like everyone…playing along in this contest was inspiring!
Thank you everyone and we look forward to using these funds to ensure more and more opportunities for our residents with a definitive effort but on our youth!
Moosomin rocks…but then I figured that out 30 years ago!
Glow Bowling Balls ARE HERE!
We have the black lights…we have the color balls…we have the hazer…we have the smoker...and we have a kick butt sound system. Now, thanks to our South East District…we have 18 glow bowl balls. This will now be the ultimate in glow bowling and I ensure kids and adults alike will absolutely love the setup. If you are interested in a glow bowling party give us a call at 435-3622!

Keep in mind we have a running Hole In One pot with the value now exceeding $3,500! Think about that—a two-dollar buy-in, and with one perfect shot you’re $3,500 dollars richer! To register or for more information contact Mike at 435-3622 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Wednesday Night Bowling League
Wednesday Night Bowling has been a huge hit this year! Sponsored by Kim Setrum at Royal LePage, the league is weekly non-committal, so you are not tied up every week. You can visit Kim’s Facebook site and just sign up ahead of time to let her know you are coming that week with a team. Cost is just $5 per player per night! But we ask you go on Kim Setrum’s Facebook page to confirm if you are bringing a team any given night.
What a growing sport this has become in Moosomin. Group plays weekly…three times a week…twice through the day and then on Wednesday nights. They have a group email so if you would like to become involved and get on the email list give us a call at the Recreation Office and we can put you on the list!
Nutrien Sportsplex–Walking FOB’s
Key FOB’s are now available for the Sportsplex Walking Track at the Recreation Office. These FOB’s will allow you entry into the Sportsplex to walk during times of the day when there are no staff at the facility (i.e. mornings). During regular hours (when there are no private bookings) you can access the walking track without a FOB.
Walking Programs at the Sportsplex
Our winter walking challenges have been such a hit and the talk of the province at recreation conferences. We have developed ever increasing walks in which patrons are challenged to walk a given distance. Our first program was the TransCanada Challenge in which patrons needed to walk the distance between the Saskatchewan and Alberta Borders. Dozens completed the challenge. Our next challenge was the Pacific Plunge which covered the distance from Saskatchewan to the Pacific Ocean. In 2018 more and more patrons completed that walk which was amazing.
This winter season we introduced the longest walk yet with the “March to Mexico City,” as the distance covers 2,900 miles. This may seem like a long, long ways, but our walkers are an amazing group and I have little doubt we will have walkers entering Mexico sometime in April!
Onto the Expert Program…March to Mexico City
Our newest, longest and most difficult walking challenge yet begins at Moosomin and ends at Mexico City! Here are your destinations along the 2,900 mile walk…
Moosomin to Sherwood Border Crossing: 84 miles
Sherwood Border Crossing to Bismarck, ND: 174 miles
Bismarck to Pierre, SD: 210 miles
Pierre to Scottsbluff, Neb.: 328 miles
Scottsbluff to Lexington, Neb.: 240 miles
Lexington to Wichita, Kansas: 347 miles

San Antonio to Monterrey, Mexico: 297 miles
Monterrey to San Luis Potosi, Mexico: 319 miles

Welcome to Mexico City, your 2,900 mile walk has been completed and you have booked your VIP invitation to our Mexican “Partido” make sure you bring some “Tums”!
2020 NHL Playoff Draft Sponsored by Pipestone Hills
The 2019 NHL Playoff Draft was an absolute blast, as Peter McMullen and his entourage would go on to purchase the St. Louis Blues and be the first to lay claim to the Mini Stanley Cup. 2020 will be even better.
First off we have moved away from giving purchasers hats. In 2020 when you purchase a team you will receive an authentic team jersey labelled with our choice of a legend from that franchise!
In addition, following the draft we will have the one and only Blu Beach Band on stage for a post draft cabaret. If you have not heard these young guys from Langenburg, then don’t miss this event…they are absolutely fantastic!
So the best part of this event is the cost has been blown out…to well...zero! Anyone attending the draft auction will be allowed into the cabaret free of charge. Should you only want to go to the cabaret the charge is just $5 at the gate.
The event will be held Saturday, March 7 at the Conexus Convention Centre with the following itinerary:
5 pm: Happy hour
6 pm: Food available (Beef on a bun and mac salad)
6:30 pm: NHL Playoff Auction begins
9 pm: Blu Beach Band
For further information or to book an table at the auction free of charge please phone or email Mike at: 435-3622, email@example.com
