Countdown to the Worlds Continues

The calendar is turning to December, which means we are getting closer to the return of the Ford World Women's Curling Championship to Swift Current on March 19-27!

The curling season is well underway, and now we know all of the countries that have qualified for the Worlds in 2016. Canada and the USA will be here along with eight countries that qualified from the European Curling Championships that were held in Denmark last week. The European representatives will be the 2010 champions from Germany and silver-medallist Scotland, along with Denmark, Sweden, Russia, Switzerland, and newcomers Italy and Finland. From the Aisa-Pacific Championship held earlier in the season in Kazakhstan, Japan and another newcomer, South Korea, punched their tickets to Swift Current.

The specific teams that will take part will be determined in the weeks and months to come as playdowns and nominations take place in each country. We'll find out who'll represent Canada when the 2016 Scotties Tournament of Hearts gets going in Grande Prairie, Alberta, this February.

In the meantime, tickets for the Ford Worlds are on sale, and if you've got a curling fan on your Christmas list, these will make a great gift. Full-event packages, mini ticket packs and select single draw tickets are now on sale at, or you can get them at the Stable in the Credit Union iplex, or by calling 306-773-1509.

Kids! Colour for a chance to win!


Have you downloaded our new KidSafe colouring book yet? You can get yours now at Swift Current Online, and your kids can enter for a chance to win some great prizes. We'll also be going out to local schools next week to hand out some KidSafe colouring books, so watch out for us!

Once your kids are finished colouring, they can send their favourite pages back to us by dropping them off at our studios (134 Central Ave N in Swift Current or 410 Centre Street in Shaunavon), or emailing them through the KidSafe Colouring Contest page, and pages submitted before December 18th will be put in a draw, which we'll make on the Magic Morning Show on December 21st!

These books are a lot of fun for kids of all ages... You know, adult colouring books are all the rage right now, and after trying out one of the KidSafe pages this morning, I can see why.


We'd love to see your pictures, so send them in to us!

Thanks to our KidSafe colouring contest sponsors: Optical Image, Kyle Agencies, Regier Honda, Comm Centre, Sentiments and Canadian Tire!

How will you make someone's day?

Today is Random Act of Kindness Day, where you're encouraged to do a small, nice thing for someone, whether it be holding the door for someone at the store, or maybe buying a coffee for the next person in line at the drive-thru.

Tuesday was National Sandwich Day, and Subway restaurants provided us with gift cards to give away, so we decided to go around downtown Swift Current that afternoon and make some people happy.

How will you make someone's day today? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter.

Happy Birthday SunDog!

The Great Plains College SunDogs continued their "Decade of Dogs" with a 10th birthday party for their mascot, SunDog, Saturday at the college's Swift Current Campus. We were there for the fun, which had an afternoon packed with games, prizes and birthday cake, and a special visit from some of SunDog's cute furry friends from the Swift Current SPCA.

Walk to Cure Diabetes Saturday

Saturday marks the 6th annual TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes in Swift Current to help raise money for JDRF to help find a cure for type 1 diabetes, which affects so many people, young and old, in our community.

You can help people like Hayden just by lacing up your runners or skates this Saturday. It goes at the Credit Union iplex with registration at 2:00pm and the walk/skate starting at 2:30pm. If you want more details, you can call Donna at 306-778-3779.

Epic Battle of the Southwest

The 10th annual Battle of the Southwest was Wednesday night at Irwin School, where the Great Plains College SunDogs and Millar College of the Bible Edge squared off in two volleyball matches. The night had some great volleyball, with Millar winning both games, and a lot of fun for the fans in attendance.

The 17th annual "Night Out in Greece" is coming up Saturday night at the Legion Hall in Swift Current, and it is a fixture on the social calendar in the southwest. The night will be filled with traditional Greek food, music and fun, and it will raise money for the Dr. Noble Irwin Regional Healthcare Foundation's "A Welcome Home" campaign, which aims to furnish the long-term care centre under construction in Swift Current.

We had four tickets to give away and qualified listeners for the draw over the past week with Greek trivia. We made our draw this morning, and Lorraine was the big winner!

 Congratulations Lorraine, and we hope you have a lot of fun at Greek Night!

If you missed out on the draw, there are still some tickets left for the event, but they are sure to go quickly. You can get yours by calling the Dr. Noble Irwin Foundation office at 306-778-3314.

Get Your Flu Shot... It's the Cool Thing to do!

I saw comedian Pete Zedlacher at the Sky Centre on Monday night for the Investors Group comedy night in support of the Salvation Army Food Bank, and he put on a great show. He joked that as he arrived in Swift Current, he determined that the "hippest place in town" was the Cypress Health Region's Flu Clinic at the Swift Current Mall.

I would have to agree with him, as I got my flu shot in the afternoon (after I voted Smile), and it was still quite busy, and there were long lineups as it opened in the morning. If you missed out on Monday's opening flu clinic, there are still nine more scheduled for Swift Current and many more in the rural communities, including ones today in Shaunavon and Leader. Anyone can attend any flu clinic in the health region to receive their free flu vaccine, provided they bring their Saskatchewan health card.

I talked with Bryce Martin with Cypress Health about their flu clinics on Monday.

If you want more details and a complete flu clinic schedule, visit the Cypress Health Region's website. is Westman's only source for community news and information such as weather and classifieds.
