Big Hockey News
We are extremely excited to announce the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League will be making an appearance at the Communiplex for the second consecutive year.
Coming on the heels of the Weyburn Red Wings OT win in 2018 over the Notre Dame Hounds, the two teams will hook up a second time.
The game will go on Saturday, November 9 at 7:30 pm. Weyburn Red Wings vs Notre Dame Hounds. The game will be held as part of Moosomin Minor Hockey weekend. Watch for ticket details and sponsorship opportunities.
With regards to the actual game, it could be a doozy. The Hounds are considered early season favorites and are off to a hot 2-0 start, while the Wings, now coached by 15-year NHL Defensemen Rich Pilon, are young but talented. They started the season in the win column as well with a 2-0 shutout of the Estevan Bruins.
As for event notes, the project is being Chaired by Randi Thorn (you can reach Randi at email@example.com) along with Mike Matichuk, Cherish Easton and Kate Glass. The committee is presently selling Event Sponsor Tables in the Blue Moose Lounge with 16 available. Contact Randi if you are interested in those. As well there will be the development of a program, so again if you are interested contact Randi.
U18 Provincial Girls Team
On November 2 we have the U18 Provincial Girls team stopping here to practice and have a lunch as they are headed to Winkler on their way to the National Championships. This will be a fantastic opportunity for the young females in town to get out and see the level they aspire to achieve. The team management welcomes any young gals who would like to get out and meet the U18 team. The gals will be skating from 12:15-1:15 pm with a lunch to follow.

Walking Programs at the Nutrien 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 which patrons needed to walk to 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.
Coming in 2019 will be the longest walk yet as we will introduce the “March to Mexico City” as the distance will cover 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 of 2020!
We are now taking teams for the 2019/2020 curling season. Leagues include: Celebration Ford Ladies League, Red Barn Men’s League and Federated Co-op Farmers and Friends. To register or for information please email or phone the Recreation Office at email@example.com or 306-435-3622.
