Meaghan and Keleah from Great Plains College joined the Magic Morning show.  Swift Current won't be Riderville, but we're partying anyway!  Info is below... For an audio summary scroll down.  To find out what Weyburn did that we didn't to get in the Top 5 for Riderville, listen to the audio after the chat with Meaghan and Keleah...


As i am sure most of you have heard, the top 5 communities were announced for the "Where is Riderville" contest at the game this past weekend. Unfortunately we were not part of that top 5.

But...the good news is that we are going to show the committee that they made the wrong choice by throwing the biggest rider party in the province!

The main feature of this event will be the Rider game at Edmonton broadcast on a giant 33' screen...but there is a lot more happening as well.
