Hope everyone had a fantastic May long weekend! It was a fun filled three days, with many events that were happening. On Saturday, May 16th I had the chance to head out to the Army Paintball which was awesome to see everyone so excited to play, while continuing to honour those who have served. We had the chance to meet up with the event leader Andy, who showed us the ropes to paint-balling, and it was something I would definitely recommend you trying out with the kids. Even if you don't want to get hit with paint by the kids, you can travel in style in the "battle van" and fire paint at the opponents from the van!

This weekend Dairy King was also a big hit for Swift Current. Not only did some of us enjoy the great tasting ice-cream, but we also had the chance to get out on the mini-golf course while a birthday party was going on, they were having a blast, but so did we, so that can tell you that you can enjoy mini-golfing for all ages. Dairy King even has some "gluten-free" ice-cream sandwiches so nobody will miss out on the summer treat.
The long weekend wasn't only fun for Swift Current, but also for the town of Kyle. I had the chance to head out there, and support them with their "Raisin' The Roof" fundraiser to help the town replace the roof on the community rec centre. This event was held on the rodeo grounds, and for only $20 , you could get in to the grounds, watch over 30 bull riders, and enjoy some of the community fun. It was a great atmosphere, and an awesome start to the sunny days we have ahead!
