Regional Science Fair wraps up last night

Another year in the books for students in the southwest as the Regional Science Fair presented their awards last night at the Swift Current Comp High School.

Lots of students in attendance with over 70 projects submitted. I got to be a guest judge and I have to admit the talent in these kids amazed me!

Here are the winners with their projects...

1st Place was Jordan Funk from O.M. Irwin School, his project was innovative and he had a working model at the fair.

Bronco's hoping to trample the Tigers

Let's continue to paint the town Blue... this includes invading The Gas City this weekend! The Stable still has tickets for both games in Medicine Hat available. At Noon today they will release tomorrow's game back to the arena and the same goes for Saturday's game tomorrow at noon.

Diane Sletten, from the SC Bronco office says tickets are hard to find the day of at the arena in Medicine Hat so take advantage before they are gone.

Tickets are also still available for games 3 & 4 next week at the I-Plex, Mayor Jarrod Schafer issued a challenge to the SW by wearing your Bronco gear or any hockey jersey you might have at home. Secondly he challenged all businesses/people to Pay It Forward by purchasing tickets and giving them to staff, non-profit organizations etc. Mike Whitney from Sure Fit Dental Clinic has already jumped on board.

Tickets available at or 1-306-773-1509


Budget Floods Growth...

Those were the three topics during Mayor Chat this morning. We started things off with the previous weekend and the anxiety of the community regarding a potential flood.

We continued the conversation regarding city budget. Overall citizens should be more concerned with the clean water we take for granted than the potholes which appear every spring. It's inevitable and city crews will get to them as soon as the weather warms & dries up!

Lastly we rounded off the conversation with the plans for city growth and the results of last weekends Hockeyville contest.

Next mayor chat will be in a couple weeks!

This is what 50 happy years looks like

So it was a little spur of the moment but last week we gave away tickets, to The Mavericks sold out show at the Sky Centre, on the Trading Post. This opened the flood gates for people calling in to see if we had any other pairs to give away.



While there was still a pair of tickets up for grabs we let Clifford give out his telephone number for anyone trying to sell their tickets to contact him. During this time we put together a package for Clifford & Inez to help them celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary.




We not only set them up with dinner & a show at the Living Sky Casino but we caught them for a photo after the amazing performance!

It just so happens to be the month of Inez's birthday, Clifford thanked us for the night out and said he was 'off the hook' for a present this year... We told him that he still had to spoil her!

Congratulations & Best Wishes to this couple as they enjoy their anniversary and the year ahead!

Premier promotes Hockeyville

Magic Morning Host Candace Woodside had the opportunity to chat with Premier Brad Wall regarding Swift Current's run at Kraft Hockeyville.

A lot is being done this week to promote Kraft Hockeyville in our community, students are wearing jerseys to school today & the Bronco's reveal their Centennial Jersey's tomorrow.

Don't forget to pull on a Jersey & pack the Plex tomorrow night when the Bronco's take on the Blades tomorrow night. Listen live on The Eagle 94.1, pregame show starts at 6:30pm.
