10th Annual Mayor's Luncehon

In studio this morning we were joined by Ruth Smith, Executive Director for Swift Current's chapter of Canadian Mental Health... She was here with details on the 10th Annual Mayor's Luncheon, which this year will be in support of Mental Health

More details are available at http://www.tourismswiftcurrent.ca/event/mayors-luncheon/ including "The 10th Annual Mayor’s Luncheon features Guest Speaker Lieutenant Governor Vaughn Solomon Schofield. All proceeds from this event go to support the local Swift Current Branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association. Advance tickets only, must be purchased by April 28. Call 306-778-2440 to reserve."

And now for a look at the greatest play in baseball... The bench clearing brawl!  Remember kids, this is what happens when you "celly" a little too hard, everytime it happens someone will want to punch you in the head, and inevitably someone actually will punch you in the head

(watch at closer to the 2 minute mark for the replay where you get to see the scrum from a better angle)

Easter Monday

A busy Thursday meant no chance to blog, but still want to pass along our interview from that morning with Bill Lee now that we are back into the work grind

Bill was in studio with Graham Parsons to tee up this year's charity golf tournament (for the SPCA)... Still lots of time to get registered for that tourny and from what I have heard it is always alot of fun (even if you can't golf)

This morning we had Ken Johnston back in studio talking about the 180 Theatre Festival taking place this week in Swift Current

And from the hockey filled Easter weekend that was, a not so hockey related story, during a hockey game, the son of a hockey announcer, not playing hockey, but on TV like his dad, and absolutely killing it... Not a part of America's got Talent, but Britian's got Talent, and to top it all off? Simon Cowell NOT looking like he hates everything about what he just saw.  If all that confused you not to worry just watch the video and it'll kind of make sense (and also get a subscription to the BBC if  you miss Simon Cowell)

(spoiler alert: not the actual HNIC clip, but it will do)

(also I guess that doesn't help with the confusion of the description, but I'm writing it off as being Monday)

NHL Playoffs = Snow??

Blog Apr 16 snow

Alot of people getting tired of waking up to this sight for their morning commute

But with the NHL Playoffs beginning tonight you know that the weather is going to warm up (eventually it has to right?).

A little playoff preview on this morning's show (through my eyes anyways) and I have Pittsburgh and Chicago in the Final with a Penguins win... Back to back drafts show that I'm not making this up, it's actually the way I feel

Also in studio this morning was an alternative for those who get no excitement out of the NHL Playoffs.  Teresa Cole joined the show as Publicity Chair for the 180 Theatre Festival set to take place April 21-26

Tuesday Mayor Chat

Sundogs Fundraiser

sundog

In studio this morning we had Morgan, Travis, and Mark with details on a fundraising auction planned for the Great Plains College Sundogs

And we have finalized some Avenged Sevenfold tickets... Not one hundred percent sure how many tickets we have just yet, but if your interested in heading out to Moose Jaw for that concert on April 16th (next Wednesday) than be tuned into The Eagle on your back to work Monday morning (the 14th) for your chance to go free of charge

An inspired headline for this Tuesday around The Eagle

The overtime blog from last night is below

While more details from the Ag & Ex about Discover the Farm event out at the Stockade to wrap up the week.

Open to the public, Saturday from 10-4 and a chance to get your Platinum Pass for Frontier Days (everything you could want off the midway).  Nice to see an event like this as well so school kids get a feel for what the Southwest is built off of.

Blog Golf

Now it's time to head out and take advantage of some springtime sunshine

The Weekend is Back

...Andsome theorotical sunshine expected with it!

A busy week on The Eagle (including a station format change in honour of April Fools) led to few opportunities to get on here and blog.

There is lot's going on this weekend though and wanted to give you a spot to get all the details in one convenient location.  Stefan and Ken were in Wednesday morning to talk about the Swift Current Little Theatre

Had Henry in yesterday to talk about this weekend's spring Hobby, Craft, and Gun Show

And Lisa joined us this morning to talk about this evening's Lyric Theatre fundraiser

Also had a couple of phone conversations with Joel Sopp about a fundraiser out in Shaunavon to raise money for KidSport (the audio provided is of this morning's chat)

And also a big shoutout to George Bowditch who let us have a look around the Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame on Tuesday (I had never previously had a chance to check it out)... Hours are 1PM to 5:30PM Tuesday through Saturday... But George did mention if you would like to check it out at a different time that he can usually accomodate.  All the contact information is availabale at http://www.saskhockeyhalloffame.com/

March 31st Overtime Podcast

overtime

Home Hardware's Overtime from Monday night featured myself, joined again by Candace Woodside and making his debut Ron Resler... We looked at the Broncos season (including a talk with Graham Black moving on to a pro career), their tough opening round playoff loss to the Tigers, included some golf talk, and wrapped up with a look at the national (and international) sports picture.

Next week on the show we will hopefully put the final touches on the Broncos season with Mark Lamb, get into an early look at how the Riders might shape up this year, and in the future hopefully talk with Joe Carnahan about the Indians upcoming season opener in the WMBL.
