MondayUpdate / Civic Election Ramblings...

For the most part the Broncos are having a quiet Monday except for an optional skate. The team went 2/3 in a three games in three nights weekend.

The Broncos will continue a five-game homestand Friday when they host the Moose Jaw Warriors. That night is also Kidsport sports equipment drive night. All fans coming to the game are asked to bring their lightly used sports equipment as a donation to Kidsport. Every donation will enter you for a chance to win Rider tickets.

Kidsport is a group I'm involved with locally and the support in the community has been outstanding. Plese think of us the next time you have a fundraiser.

We recently paid out the most money we ever have for fall/winter sports programs for families in need.

The Prince Albert Raiders picked up a pair of defenseman from Saskatoon today in a deal that sent G Steven Stanford to the Blades.

The Raiders also released over-age D Pat Kozyra.

The Raiders have an over abundance of defenseman. I still think the Broncos need to find a 1990 defenseman (19 year-old) to help bridge the gap from the veterans to the rookies. The strong play of the rookies though has quelled the need lately.

I'm on a day off... but it hasn't stopped me from coordinating our Shaw TV show this week and getting things organized for the WHL radio show.

Work really never ends during the hockey season but that's the way I prefer it. Hard to believe we're already 10% finished the regular season.

Quick civic election update based on recent events....

I'm not going to tell you who you shouldn't vote for in the upcoming Swift Current Civic Election.

I will however say a vote for George Bowditch and Denis Peraullt is a good choice. Two extremely nice individuals who are in it for the right reasons. No hidden agendas or motivated by their own ego. These two are solid choices for City Council. I will mark an X by their names.

As for the mayoral race, I believe Jerrod Schafer appears to be the front runner based on talk in the city. He's followed closely behind by Don "you won't like me when I'm angry" Robinson, and Stacey "please pay attention to me" Ellertson.

Back to my Monday off.... my mom is visiting. She's already successfully snooped through every closet, storage bin, basket and garbage in the house.

My closet and sock drawer have never been more organized....Mom, while your at it the garage is a mess!

Perhaps Swifty making a push for the two 19 year olds in Deck or Rowley. They have another 19 year old in Wall but he was just picked up from Saskatoon.
