There is not a lot to announce regarding the Unit Sports Leagues other than to state that all leagues continue to progress along with their usual high standard of competitive play. It is great to observe the improvement in play by many of our members since they first joined these leagues. As Mr. Grace would say, ‘You’ve all done very well’.

On the Provincial Command level, our Unit #283 Darts Team of Daniel MacDonald, Dave Treanor, Chris Pa-rei, Dave Duncan placed 3rd at Command Darts in Selkirk Unit #151 on Saturday, October 05th after a long day of darting and stuff. Thank you fellas, greatly appreciated by us, your fellow comrades an Unit #283.

The most recent Provincial Command Tournament was for Ladies Darts hosted by Portage la Prairie Unit #13 on Saturday, October 19th. Congratulations to the Ladies Team of Tanis Grist, Kerry Miller, Bonnie Slaun-white, Loretta Cornoyer for coming in a solid 2nd at this tournament. It all went well and everyone had a great day.
With these last two tournament placements, our Unit now sits at a running total of 19 points for this 2019-2020 defense of the Command Shield. It is with thanks and appreciation fully directed to those members who rep-resented Unit #283 thus far in the schedule. We look forward to the next half of Command Tournaments and wish all the best to the Unit qualifiers who will play in these upcoming events.

The next Command sports event is the Biathlon . I have scheduled a qualifying tournament for the 2nd of November. Rockwood Unit #303 will be hosting this mixed tournament on Saturday, November 23rd at 10:00am. At the time of this newsletter printing I do not have any member names who qualify for this event.

No matter, ‘twill be a goodin’

Following this Biathlon Tournament will be the Command 9-Ball Tournament which will be held on Saturday, November 30th and will be hosted by Ft. Garry Unit #60. On behalf of Unit #283….congratulations and wel-come back into hosting sports once again and have a wonderful tournament. We know you will put on a great event.

There are no in-house sports league tournaments scheduled for November, however a number of sports leagues are planning to hold some fun events in December and January. Notices and reports will be advertised prior to each sports event. Please do not forget….these fun tournaments are open to all Unit #283 comrades not just to league players. SO don’t be shy come on out for some fun and competitive sports by signing up.
