The Adventures of Kathy and Shanna

I had another fun filled weekend, and this time I had an accomplice! Kathy Jennings from Magic 97.1 joined me for a roadtrip to Shaunavon and Lac Pelletier! Even though we got a little lost on our way to Lac Pelletier, we had lots of laughs and good memories.

To kick off the weekend, I checked out Shaunavon's Boomtown Days rodeo. It was beautiful night for a rodeo with great weather and great people. The CCA folks put on a fantastic show for us! The Triple Threat Trick Riders also made an appearance and the crowd was amazed by their tricks and stunts.

Saturday morning, Kathy and headed out to Shaunavon once again for the Boomtown Days parade! We had a ton of fun throwing candy and pumping the tunes around town for the parade after enjoying a pancake breakfast.

Next stop, after getting slightly lost, was Lac Pelletier for their 50th Anniversary! The Coral saw some great entertainment with Saskatchewan Express performing all afternoon, along with some delicious cake! Some fuzzy creatures were also soaking up the celebration from the petting zoo in front of the park office. We grabbed a bite to eat from Clancy's before stopping to pet the Zebu cows and marvel in their cuteness. :)

On the way home, we stopped at the Eliminator's Car Show at the Living Sky Casino. If I could own this blue car, I would be the happiest little southwest adventurer in the world.

On Sunday, I headed out to Shaunavon for the last of Boomtown Days. Sunday in the Park was a nice relaxing way to end the weekend, with lovely music and an awesome concession stand!

It was a great weekend! Keep in touch for more information on what's happening in the southwest corner of the province. See you soon! :)

Details on upcoming events available on the Events Calendar.

Happy Mondaze!

What a fabulous weekend! Boomtown Days in Shaunavon, Speedy Creek Racing both Friday & Saturday evenings, as well as Hallonquist Rodeo and Lac Pelletier celebrating their 50th Birthday!

After a whirlwind weekend, it can be hard getting back into the grind. This morning we had a murder mystery to solve and solving the mystery entitled a lucky listener to a $10 gift card for Burger King!

Shauna was killed one Sunday morning. The police know who they are going to arrest from this bit of information:

April was getting the mail
Alyssa was doing laundry
Reggie was cooking
Mark was planting in the garden
Who killed Shauna and how did the police know who to arrest?

Craven a Cause

Last week we raffled off a Camping Pass & a pair of Craven Weekend Passes to the highest bidder.

Loyal Listener, Kale Scherger, called in at the last minute with $150 bid and had a great time at Craven this past weekend!

Today we delivered the donation to Heather at Southwest Crisis Services for the Safe Shelter.

A Week of Firsts

Hey, guys! This was a week of firsts with all of the events happening around here. Here's what went down over the past week...

On Thursday, I was up and at it with The International Peace Run for some early morning yoga in the park! It was my first time ever attempting yoga, and I have never felt like more of a pretzel in my life. It was super refreshing, though! I recommend it to anyone, especially an early morning class. The international peace runners were awesome and I had a great morning getting to know them. Shout out to Christine Ciona for helping organize this event!

Later on Thursday, I whipped over to the airport in Swift Current and hungout with the Southwest Flying Club. They had put together some flights for kids, which eventually turned into anyone who wanted to go for a ride! I was one of them, and it was my first time ever flying. I had blast, thanks so much for letting me on the plane!

Super Dave also hit the skies and wowed the crowd with his aerobatic flights. It was a great way to spend the day, and I hope everyone who came out had some fun.

The day wasn't just for flights, it also held car and aeroplane shows. There was quite a few gorgeous cars and planes! (This was my favourite.) :)

Thursday was also the Seventh Annual Chautauqua Summer Theatre Festival's kickoff, with "God is a Scottish Drag Queen" as the first show! It was hilarious, and I'm still laughing about it.

I managed to get to a few shows, and they were all wonderful! All of the shows were unique, and there was a show out there for everyone. On Friday night, I saw "7 Ways to Die, a Love Story", and it was great play! The performers were in full mask costume, and they did a fantastic job presenting the characters.

The last show I saw was "Underbelly", a hilarious one-man show based on the life and times of William S. Burroughs. It was my first time ever seeing a one-man show, and he did an astounding job! Bravo!

On Saturday, I headed out to Lac Pelletier for their Steak and Lobster Feast! I had a great time hanging out with you guys, and I'll see you soon for Lac Pelletier's 50th Anniversary coming up this weekend!

I crossed alot of things off my bucket list over the past week, and we had some beautiful weather out there as well! Check back in for more information on upcoming events this week, or click on the Events Calendar! See you soon!

Tribe Talk

Swift Current Indians on a roll after a weekend on the road! They sit 1.5 games ahead of the rival MJ Miller Express and host Lethbridge tonight at Mitchell Field.

This morning on Tribe Talk, Eros Modena & Eric Sams stopped by. Both from Florida they find it a little colder and the balls move a lot faster. Baseball aside, they are very different guys with different interests.

You can purchase tickets at the gate for $10 (adults), first pitch is at 7:05! See you tonight!

What is the tractor pulling?

The Redhead Equipment Case IH Truck & Tractor Pull kicks off tonight at 7 at Kinetic Exhibition Park.

If you're wondering what the Truck & Tractors are pulling take a look at this promo video from a couple weeks back!

Weather wise it should be fabulous, so take the entire family out for a weekend of big tires, loud engines and a tonne of torque!

Tickets are available at the Swift Current Mall Admin Office and will also be at the gate. For more information contact Carol Beyer 306-741-8298.

Bug Off!

What's your magic number? Right now, mine is seven. I have seven irritating mosquito bites and I think I'm becoming immune to AfterBite!

The moquito's are out in full force all over the southwest this year as reported in a SCOL news story earlier this week. 

Here are some home remedies with ingredients you probably already have in the cupboard.

1.) Place a used dry teabag on the bite.
2.) Rub Raw Honey on the bite.
3.) Apple Cider Vinegar, use a cotton ball and apply to the bite.
4.) Baking Soda, this is the cheapest and being a dry powder can be stored in your pantry for years. Take a small amount and add a little water to make a paste and apply the paste to the bite.
5.) Take the skin of a Banana and rub the inside part of the banana peel on the bite.
6.) Take a leaf off of an Aloe Vera plant and rub the bite with the leaf of the plant.

Between the tick season that seems never ending and the moquito invasion I'm tempted to live in a plastic bubble until everything freezes! Happy Scratching!

Dru's got a Craven...

Congrats to our winner (Loyal Listener) Dru Johns, he called in last minute "Craven" Joe Nichols and judging by the echo of the horn on his semi, he is a happy camper!

Dru told us he's never been to Craven before, it's an experience of a lifetime and it looks as though the weather might cooperate for the first time in, well, basically forever!

Have a blast Dru, don't forget to tag us in some photos on FB or Twitter!

Happy Craven

Century Celebration

The Swift Current Airport will be booming on Thursday! The Southwest Flying Club will be hosting a series of events on July 10 that will have something for everyone.

SWFC President, Scott Carefoot, was on the show last week with details regarding the day's activities.

Our summer events gal, Shanna Empey, will be on hand - so if you can't make it there will be pictures posted on our facebook page

Forecast currently says Sunny with a high of 28 for Thursday, so "Slip, Slap, Slop" as the sun beating off the runway can be intense!

A Great Weekend in the Southwest

Hey, guys! I had a very eventful weekend travelling across the southwest in search of fun and laughter... and I found it! I had a blast at all the events this weekend, and I thought I'd give you the run down on what was happening here in the southwest!

Friday was the first of an annual event, the All You Can Eat Fish Fry at Camp Lemieux! Out of all the events I've attended, this was by far the most delicious. We had as much hand-battered fish, french fries, and coleslaw that you could fit in your tummy. Quite a few people came out, and even more returned with their plates for another helping. The crew cooking and putting together the event were wonderful, and it was a great way to spend my evening. Thanks for having me!

The next stop on the list was in Eastend, SK. I arrived at the Eastend Trans Canada Trek on Saturday morning. I had a great time with the folks organizing the event and the participants. Nobody serves up hospitality quite like these guys to make you feel at home! Thanks so much for having me, it was a blast! Since it was my first time ever being in Eastend, I took a tour of the town and ended up at the T-Rex Discovery Centre where I got to check out Scotty the T-Rex! Again, thanks for hanging out with me in your lovely little town. It was such a great experience!

From Eastend, I made my way over to Hazlet, SK. Hazlet Regional Park was hosting a Fun Day/Concert for everyone to enjoy! There were games and face painting for the kids, as well as concerts and performances. The event featured local talent as well as Julian Austin, a Canadian country music singer who won the Juno Award for Best Country Male Artist. It was an incredibly hot day out in Hazlet, so thankfully we had some awesome water games to entertain us and keep us cool. Thanks for letting me be apart of your event!

It was a rainy Sunday, and what better way to enjoy our community AND warm and dry than Doc's Town at Kinetic Park? From 2pm until 3pm, the Doc's Town Church had a Cowboy Poetry reading. Bryce Burnett and Brian Anderson read some old cowboy poetry as well as pieces from their own book. In addition to the cowboy poetry, Doc's Town's Tea Room and buildings were open from 1pm to 5pm. It was a pretty unique event, and I got the chance to check out all of our oldest buildings!
