The Mixed Bonspiel is scheduled for March 8-10. Details still to be announced, but you can put your team down by emailing Lyle at seelylyle@gmail.com.

If you’re not a curler, you can still come out and enjoy a soft drink or a beer in the viewing loft and cheer on the teams!

In Rodeo news, our rodeo committee are already deep into the planning for our May 24-26 Rodeo and Racemeet! The Rodeo committee meets on February 4 at 7:00 at the Alder Flats Community Center to work out more details for this annual event which has been taking place since 1967 in our little community. If you are interested in volunteering on the day of the rodeo for an hour or two (or more!), you can email Kathy at kschwengler@incentre.net. If you’d like to be involved in planning, please attend the meeting!
