The Home Hardware Fall Scramble at the Meota Golf course was played on a glorious sunny Sunday, Sept 22, with 105 golfers. The winning team – an 11 under 61 – consisted of Cam Foulds, Sam Tremblay, Gord Pepple, Brook Favel and Lester Favel. The day featured a long putt prize on every hole. Prizes? A selection of delicious pies! The winners were, from hole 1 to 9, Chelsey Doom, Dale Johnson, Derek Welford, Becky Page, Gray Dinnen, Lloyd Ward, Matt Edwards, Larry Malenfant and Brian Shutra. The course will stay open into October, but weather, as usual, will dictate when the pins come out for the season.
The transfer site is on winter hours as of September long weekend, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Duplicate bridge was played in the city’s Pioneer Hall, Thursday, Sept. 26. Top score went to Catriona Winterholt and Donna Scherman, Fraser Glen and Jean Lowes and Margaret Dyck and Dave Creegan.

Sorry about the mixup with the meetings and their dates, last week, causing confusion and bad feelings in the community, proving again the data should have been verified before passing it on incorrectly. The fact that the bulletin board at the Post Office is being replaced, so no posters to check, didn’t help the situation.
The snowy weather in southern Alberta surprised many people, especially visitors on holiday. They had some pretty bad stuff over the weekend, but, of course, they know it will melt before winter sets in. Those farmers must be feeling helpless. While some crops are taken off, others are waiting, and in some areas the fields will be too wet to get onto even if the grain gets dry enough to combine. It is a frustrating business, for sure. Maybe when the ground freezes it will be possible to get it off.
Fall suppers will be starting up soon, so let’s get that bulletin board in place, and hope someone in Meota will step up to the plate and organize the fall supper and monthly noon dinners they are so famous for.
