Byemoor/Endiang news

News for the week of Aug. 25

By Les and Rosemary Stulberg

The hamlet of Byemoor was a busy place on the weekend. A sea of holiday trailers filled every corner of the hamlet for the annual Byemoor Slo-Pitch Tournament, with 22 teams participating.

The first games began Friday with a fantastic set of fireworks at dark to kick off the event.

Saturday morning started off with the pancake breakfast. A good parade with a nice variety of entries wound through the streets of Byemoor at 11 a.m. and was enjoyed by many spectators. The little ones especially enjoyed the candy being tossed along the route. Best over all parade entry was won by the Endmoor Minor Ball Association float.

In the afternoon the arena was a hub of activity, with the Kid’s Carnival drawing about 65 children.

Saturday evening, the younger set danced the night away at the arena. Music was supplied by Wired DJ Services of Red Deer.

Another pancake breakfast kicked off Sunday morning and the ball tournament finals in the afternoon wrapped up another successful Slo-Pitch Tournament, sponsored by the Sullivan Lake West Agricultural Society.

Congratulations to the winning teams. A local team captured top spot in the ‘A’ Event, with the Barn Cats (entered by Kary Lyn Keith) the 2022 champions, over the Boobs (Brandon Baird).

‘B’ Event was won by the Wacky Wasdals (Jordan Smith) over the Good Wood team (Jay Ruttan).

‘C’ Event winners were the Almost Heroes (Danny Grover) over the Shit Kids (Russell Steen).

‘D’ Event was won by Relatively Good (Carolin Schofer) over the Whiskey Dingers (Madison McCrindle).

Farmers have begun their harvest, and will be busy in the fields for the next number of weeks. Be sure to watch for grain trucks and large machinery on the road and use a little extra caution during this busy time of year in the agricultural community.

Several local folks took in the wedding of Kyle Mohl and Rachel Turnbull in Hanna on Sat, Aug. 20. Kyle is the son of David and Kris (Schultz) Mohl and the local grandma is Eleanor Schultz. Congratulations to the newlyweds for a long and happy marriage. They will be residing in Hanna.

The County of Stettler is presently working on a Community Mapping Project that will record locations of historical events or a site that has significance with the County of Stettler that is unmarked.

I plan to send in the location of the annual Endmoor Elk’s Picnic Grounds, as an example. The County wants to record the stories and points of interest before they are lost forever.

Each submission will be plotted into GIS and mapped with its location. The map will be available for viewing on the County of Stettler website once it is complete.

Everyone who makes a submission before Sept. 30, 2022 will be entered into a prize draw. Send your entries to communitymapping@stettlercounty.ca and for more information contact the County at 403-742-4441.

Happy 80th Birthday wishes are sent to Elsie Walker, a former Endmoor resident now residing at Olds on Aug. 31. Congratulations on your special milestone and best wishes for many more happy birthdays, Elsie.

Humour for the Day —

“Why is it the one who snores, falls asleep first?”

“I have selective hearing. I’m sorry, you were not selected.”

“Work is something I’m just doing till I win the Lottery.”
