I believe the best way to start off the first of my upcoming series of 2019 Sports Reports is to add very best wishes for a wonderful, healthy and prosperous New Year to all members and guests at Unit#283.

 Unit sports programs will soon be resuming their individual schedule of play this month that will carry on up and including the playoffs in the spring followed by their finals and windup banquets, In between times there will be some hotly contested competition yet to be resolved, so to all the competitors; play well, play hard, play fair, but most of all….enjoy yourself.

I have the new schedule for the Friday Night Sports Meat draw for the Unit that I will hand out to the league chairs and post on the sports bulletin board in the game room. I have sent out emails to all sports league chairs to survey what date would be best for our next sports meeting in the boardroom.

 There are a number of special sports events scheduled in the upcoming months as well as Provincial Command qualifying tournaments which will be posted on the sports bulletin board. Please check this board for sign up and tournament dates. Remember……...you have to hold a currant Unit #283 card to qualify or play in any of these events.

 Regarding Provincial Command sports, as of this date Unit #283 holds 19 points towards the 2018-2019 Com-mand shield. The next Command events include Regular Shuffleboard held in Portage la Prairie Unit #13 and Senior Snooker at John Osborn Unit #1, dates and times for these tournaments are posted on the Sports Bulle-tin Board. Please sign up early for the qualifier, we can always use more players entering these events and then represent the Unit at Command Tournaments.

 I wish all competitors in the various leagues great play, great times and most of all, great memories. I hope to see most of you either at the Unit or away throughout the remaining sports season.
