Major birthday party addition at Sportsplex
We have added another doozy attraction to the Sportsplex with regards to kids parties. Thanks to the generous donation of the Borderland Co-op we have purchased a massive inflatable 26 ft by 13 ft projector screen and will be adding an entire Wii Active collection of games. Just imagine a bunch of 10-year-olds playing Wii Active on a 400 square foot screen! We will set the screen up on the Leisure Centre side of the Sportsplex and it will basically go completely across the tile floor.
Keep in mind all the items at the bowling alley as well—smokers, foggers, multiple new strobe lights and a fantastic stand alone sound system!
For bookings or for further information please contact Catherine at 435-3622.

SHA Provincial Playdowns
The Moosomin Rangers will ice two teams this year in the Provincial Playdowns. Those two teams will include the Pee Wee Rangers and the Midget Rangers. Here is a quick peek at what each draw looks like.
Pee Wee Rangers
SHA Provincial C Playdowns
20 teams are registered in Pee Wee Provincial C including 10 in both the north and the south. In the south Moosomin was one of four teams required to play an extra round (six south teams received first round byes). In their first round the Rangers will meet the Balcarres Broncos. Should the team win that two game total point they would match up again the winner of the Langenburg/Cupar series in the South Quarter-Finals.
SHA Provincial B Playdowns
17 teams registered in the Provincial Midget B draw including nine in the north and eight in the south. Moosomin Rangers will meet Lafleche in the South Quarter Final. Should the team win that round they would match up against the winner of the Melville/Cupar series in the South Semis.
Good luck to both! I can tell you that both are talented squads and could make some noise in their respective Playdowns.

Of course the Sportscage is the runaway leader as the most listened to sports talk radio show in Saskatchewan. As well, you will know Rod as the longtime voice of the Saskatchewan Roughriders and many years as the PBP man for the Regina Pats.

In conjunction with the Sportscage we wind up our 2017/18 Friday Night Corporate Golf League with hosts Brandon and Jolene Banga from Tim Hortons.
