Harry Bartlett tells us his NHL playoff hockey pool is past the minimum number of participants required for it to go ahead. “We’re at 258 as we speak,” he said last Thursday. If he gets a thousand entries, Harry figures there’ll be about a $5,000 profit, which this year goes towards the fund to build a new performing arts theatre (or community complex, if you will). The playoffs start around Apr. 8, so lay your money down and pick your players and get those forms back to Harry or to Sports First or the college. And for goodness sake get yourself up to date on recent trades and injuries!

Well, paint us happy; and call us cowboys….if this isn’t going to be the most fun we’ve had in recent years, we don’t know what is.
The stars will be coming out in full force next week, first at the Sawridge Hotel in Slave Lake next Friday, then at the Flatbush community complex the following evening.
Danny Hooper’s travelling road show, his cast of thousands, is movin’ on in, we’re told, and we’re also told to expect a whole lot of fun to be deposited at our feet, for the simple cost of admission.

And if that’s not your cup of tea, you can always head over to Billy’s Outlaw Inn to take a cruise down Nostalgia Lane with Trooper, the top group from the 1970s that jus keeps on going, and going, and going. (Hmm..think they might have some Energizer Bunny inside??)
Anyway Boomers, do your fellow Boomers proud and get on down!!

And speaking about going half way around the world to work on a good tan, we hear yet another of our fine RCMP corporals is headed in that direction, this time to northwest Africa.
Yup, Cpl. Don Ray has announced he’s headed to Sierra Leone in the very near future on a peace-keeping mission of sorts, to help restore order now that the civil unrest and chaos has cleared in that nation.
Cpl. Don says he’s looking forward to the mission that comes close on the heels of the return of Cpl. Peter Quilty who arrived home last October from a fact-finding investigative mission in East Timor.
