The Provincial Command Senior Snooker Tournament was held on Saturday, February 9th at John Osborn Unit #1. After a fine day of competition, Unit #283 placed first among those Units attending. Congratulations to the team of Dieter Bonas, Art Cabel, Tom Smith and Leigh Sherry for representing our Unit so aptly at this event. With this win, Unit #283 now has 27 points towards the Provincial Command Shield for the 2018-2019 season.

The next Command event is Cribbage which will be held in Selkirk Unit #151 on March 9th followed by the 63rd annual Curling Bonspiel being held at Riverview Curling Club in Brandon on the 15th, 16th and 17th of March. I wish, in advance, all Unit #283 teams participating the very best and good fortune for this annual event. Please sign up asap as hotel bookings are very scarce in Brandon at this time of year. North of 40 has been bought out by Travelodge which is located at 210 18th Street N. When booking rooms, quote ‘ANAVETS’.

Following this bonspiel in Command events, Ladies Shuffleboard will be held on March 23rd at Rockwood Unit #303, finishing the winter season off with the Triathlon on April 13th at Unit #283 with #283 acting as host.

There is a charity fundraising darts tournament being held in the Stillwell Hall on Saturday, March 2nd starting at 10 am with a money board, poker derby, and silent auction. So even if you are not a darts player, drop over to the hall and try your luck in this event. It’s for a good cause.

On March 23rd a Canadian Snooker Qualifying Tournament will be held in the games room starting at 10 am. This qualifier requires all four tables to complete this event, notices will be posted on the bulletin boards and in the games room prior to the event. Thank you for your co-operation, it is greatly appreciated.

All house leagues are in full swing and running smoothly (as usual) with great expertise from the various chairs and committees. These leagues will shortly be in playoff and finals followed by wind-up banquets.
