Val Marie students fighting for the trip of a lifetime!

Down the road, a short distance away from the city where Life Makes Sense, a group of kids are rallying together in attempts to win the trip of a lifetime!

Principal, Angela Clement, invited Magic 97 down to Val Marie to meet the kids and share their experience with us. Their journey has been one of knowledge, fun & excitement.


Voting closes March 30 and although there is a good chance they will stay in the Top 10, there is something to say about bragging rights when you come out in first place from a community averaging 150 people.

Good Luck kiddos!

Running for Shelter is a Good Thing!

Get Ready to Run for Shelter

The first annual Southwest Run for Shelter is taking place June 13th at Kinetic Park. Sign up for a 5km, 10 km run or a half or full marathon.   The run is being organized by the Southwest Community Shelter. I’m starting to train for a 10 km run…I’ve only ever ran 5 kms so a 10k is a huge thing for me...wish me luck! I guess I better get on the treadmill stat!

It’s all worth it because proceeds are going to a great cause and the Southwest YES plans to establish a shelter in Swift Current to serve youth for ages 14 to 18 within the Southwest. Registrations are due by May 25th with a minimum pledge of $50. If you raise $100 before or by May 25th you’ll receive a T Shirt.

Get your running shoes out to Run for Shelter and help raise funds for the brand new shelter in Swift Current!


It's National Awkward Moments Day

Ah…Yes - National Awkward Moments Day!

It’s true sometimes life is just awkward! Today is the day we celebrate all those awkward moments and even embrace them! I just recently found out that National Awkward Moments Day is March 18th and I started thinking of all my past awkward moments…there’s a lot.

Let’s think…there was the time I went to work with my shirt inside out and backwards and no one told me all day (didn’t they notice?) or the time I forgot to change my shoes before work and ended up wearing ratty looking Ugg-like slippers instead of my heels…ya that was awkward. There’s so many more moments, but I’ll stop there. :)

check out this article and see if you can relate to any of these awkward moments:

That awkward moment when

Parking on the wrong side of the gas station, then turning the car around to realize you are still on the wrong side.

That awkward moment when

You go for a handshake and they go for a hug.

How about that awkward moment when...

Seeing someone at a distance that you know, you wave and say "Hey!" then as they come closer in your direction while giving you a confused look, you realize it's not the person you thought it was.


I say today let’s embrace our awkwardness!

Would you get a chest wax for Kelly Clarkson?

Thinking of a Judd Apatow movie featuring Steve Carell, the title for this blog seemed fitting for a contest... FORTUNATELY for the men of the southwest we will make it incredibly less painful and easier for the Kelly Clarkson fans to nab tickets to her show this fall!

The 2015 Piece by Piece tour was announced yesterday with her only Saskatchewan date in Saskatoon at the Sasktel Centre, Saturday October 10th.

Tickets go on sale Friday, March 20th at 10am BUT you can Beat the Box Office by racing the clock!

Below, some Kelly Clarkson trivia, when you hear the cue to call Friday morning the clock will wind down from 60s and you will answer as many questions as possible until the buzzer. You have unlimited wrong answers but you must have four correct before the time runs out!

Hometown Hockey Warms the Heart

Hometown Hockey 

Did you get a chance to go the Hometown Hockey Festival in Regina? My son is a HUGE hockey fan so it made perfect sense for us to head to Regina for the 22nd stop of Roger’s Hometown Hockey - a fun free weekend-long outdoor hockey festival!

What wasn't there to love about this event? There were tons of giveaways including "Hometown Hockey" gloves, touques and jerseys.  Tents were set up to look like lodges but were completley decked out with x-box systems, hockey games and activities for the kids.  NHL Alumni were on hand to sign autographs and take photos with fans.  It was a jam-packed hockey event but my son's favourite part by far, was ball hockey!  Kids just had to grab what hockey gear was available and start playing! Mason had so much fun playing in net on Saturday that we just had to return Sunday for more! It was a good thing that they had cozy tents and hot chocolate so I could keep warm, as I watched all Sunday afternoon.

It was a fun place for hockey fans of all ages to bond and talk hockey! When this event tours around Canada next year we WILL be there!
