Well I am not sure what to offer about the benefit hockey game. All I know is what a great decision I made when I moved to Moosomin 30 years ago. Thanks to everyone who made a massive event come together in three days. I do not want to miss anyone but I have to offer my special thank-yous to these individuals who played such key roles.
Barbecue operations: Thank you to Verna Cherry and Randi Thorn
Barbecue sponsorship: Celebration Ford and Bradley’s for sponsoring all costs
Players: Devon McMullen and Jeff Cole
Game day operations: Rob Hanson and Dale Nixon
Silent auction: Michelle Hayhurst and Jolene Banga

Jr hockey connection: Weyburn Red Wings and Mike Rooney
Just thanks to everyone …$54,000 raised for the Bronco’s families and I can guarantee you they will need every penny to get through the worst nightmare you could ever imagine.

Speaking of thank-yous, young Ty Sinclair put together a video of the day for us. He did an amazing job and it is a touching video. Please check the video out at:
Moosomin Golf Course Clubhouse
If you are a golfer, my goodness will you have a treat awaiting you in the coming months. Our golf course—well we have, in my opinion, one of the three nicest nine-hole courses in Saskatchewan—is a beauty. Our new golf course clubhouse will top it! There is a massive and beautiful atrium to enter into, followed by a huge sitting area, followed by what will be a fantastic raised deck followed by a ground level sitting area, all treed in the most perfect location. There is also a fantastic kitchen and bar area, unbelievable bathrooms and a huge basement.
It is a significant amount of money and an absolute ton of fundraising and building/volunteer work, but when completed I believe we will be left with the nicest complete nine-hole package in the province. Of course being set in the shadows of the Pipestone Valley is a great feature as well.
Hats off to the Moosomin Golf Course Executive for their initiative and foresight on this project. It will ensure the long-term stability of the course.

Tim Hortons Saskatchewan Farmers Market coming to Bradley Park in 2018!
We are excited, as we have officially been accepted as a member of the Saskatchewan Farmers Market Co-op Ltd. The market will be held at the Tim Hortons Outdoor Eventplex on our large deck and in the new park area. Keep in mind this will be a Registered Farmers Market and as such we hope to offer a tremendous amount of variety from our vendors.
The market will be held once a week on Thursdays from June 28 to October 4 from 12-4 pm.
Our hope is to make this an outing of sorts as we will look to run a lunch time barbecue. There will be free coffee for patrons, some nice afternoon music and of course a sitting area up on the Sportsplex Oilman’s Deck.
Of course if it is a cold or rainy day out we simply move things indoors at the Sportsplex ... every day will be perfect!
Tim Hortons Saskatchewan Farmers Market Vendors
We are presently accepting applications for vendor spots for our 2018 Farmers Market. As a registered market we are able to accept vendors of all types but we are not limited. If you are looking to sell food, produce, store items, even a garage sale type table, we are what you are looking for!
As far as fees go, regular vendors are charged a $25 registration fee which goes to the Saskatchewan Farmers Market Inc. This covers your vendor registration as well as insurance. Table prices are set at $10 for regular vendors and $20 for one-time vendors. This will include your use of a table. Also note in case of rain we simply move in indoors at the Sportsplex, so the market is a go rain or shine.
If you are interested in becoming a vendor please give us a call at 435-3622. We do have a committee set up to adjudicate potential vendors. We require this committee to ensure all vendors are reputable, as well that we do not over duplicate a certain item (i.e. 10 vendors selling Tupperware) to ensure our vendors have success at the event as well.
If you would like more information on vendors/requirements please give us a call at 435-3622.
If you missed out on Minor Ball registration, the association urges you to register ASAP. Simply go online to moosominrangers.ca and from there the process is very easy!
