PARKLAND VALLEY DISTRICT GAMES 2012
As a result of the provincial curling held in Canora in March and the District games held in Melville in May, the Parkland Valley District has a membership of 135 this year. Results of the curling were published earlier so this report will outline the district games in more detail. This is the first time in a number of years that the district games were held in one location. Melville hosted a variety of events on May 29, 2012, and medal winners had the opportunity to enter the provincial games in Saskatoon. As a result the district sent 36 participants plus several guests to Saskatoon, July 3-5. The majority of the participants were members of two slo-pitch teams – one from Melville and the other from a variety of communities north of Yorkton, mainly Preeceville and Kamsack. Also entered from the Parkland Valley District are two track and field athletes and one golfer. Although they do not need to attend the games in Saskatoon the gold medal winners for poetry and for a short story are also entered in the provincial games.
Parkland Valley District athletes obtained eight medals in the Provincial 55+ Games. All medals were earned by the two track and field athletes, Bob Edwards and Polly Wardle. Polly received four gold medals and Bob received three gold and one silver medals. Congratulations!! The Melville slo-pitch team won the consolation side of the slo pitch competition defeating the Preeceville-Kamsack team. Well done!!.
