Jersey Boys

This past weekend was filled with rain, and lots of it. However, I found the perfect hiding spot to escape the rain... Jersey Boys!

Last Saturday, I headed out to Gull Lake for a 50's style evening at the Lyceum Theatre. They held an event that included burgers and a can of coca-cola for $2, and an exclusive showing of the new Jersey Boys movie! It was a lovely not-so-little theatre with plenty of people to take advantage of the movie and the amazing popcorn.

There was also a bit of a show 'n shine in the movie theatre parking lot for anyone who wanted to show off their vehicle.

It was an awesome evening, all for old fashioned prices.

My Week in the Southwest

This past week was filled with baseball, dinosaurs, and concerts!

On Thursday, I headed out to the East Block of Grasslands National Park for "Fossil Fever!". I went on a hike through the valley, and got a chance to see a real triceratops fossil! I learned about the different rock formations and I witnessed quicksand for the first time.

Swift Current hosted the AA Minor Western Canada Baseball Championships this past Saturday, and I got to hangout at the ball diamonds and work the concession! There was quite a turn out and we had lots of fun serving up burgers and hot dogs for the folks in town!

 

On Saturday night, I headed out to Gowan's Grove for the Bears in Hazenmore EP Release. Stacy Tinant and Colter Wall kicked off the night with two incredible performances, and Bears in Hazenmore had the crowd captivated with their songs from the EP, as well as a few covers. This crew is going to go far!

Finals start tonight...

Swift Current Indians are on a roll, sweeping first the Weyburn Beavers followed by the Regina Red Sox, it's down to the wire...

Tonight is game one of the finals against the Medicine Hat Mavericks, first pitch at Mitchell Field at 7:05.

Kim Johnston, host of MY96 in Medicine Hat, sent out a friendly wager to me this morning... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_Nps796kDs&

So naturally I had to fire a response back... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRHnVtKkFSk&;

It's all in good fun, but honestly Kim really is a huge fan of the Tribe so I look forward to fufilling his dream of getting back into a SC ball cap!

Come out tonight to pack the park, tickets can be purchased at the gate!

and the winner is...

Listening for #KershawClassic paid off for Patti Highsaw (Mankota) and Shannon Poff (Swift Current) they were the 9th callers and won tickets to tonights SOLD OUT show!







sammyKershaw

Rain Watcher, Grant Schierlink, called the other day and we had him choose a number between one and ten... he chose nine.

I had Patti & Shannon both pick and number, Patti (6)/Shannon(5) so Patti and her husband Lionel will not only be attending the show at the Sky Centre but will have the opportunity to Meet & Greet Mr. Kershaw!

Congrats winners!

Power outage = No Kershaw

We successfully gave away tickets to Sammy Kershaw this morning, Patti Highsaw from Mankota was the 9th caller during "She Don't Know She's Beautiful". Congrats!

During "Haunted Heart" other forces came into play and the power at our transmitter site went down, therefore postponing the final pair of tickets! Spooky!

As a result, to make it fair for everyone, we will be playing a #KershawClassic tomorrow between 6-9am, same as this morning... when you hear his smooth sultry voice, be the 9th caller and you could be on your way to the sold out performance at the Sky Centre!

Blake Berglund & the Vultures will be opening.

Now that the power is back on, it's just a matter of finding the appropriate dress for the occasion! :) See you tomorrow night!
