The Dinsmore Composite School's Grade 7/8 class's bi-annual trip to the Cypress Hills Provincial park was an great success again this time around. The class headed out from Dinsmore Monday morning (June 25th) stopping at Swift Current for gas and some DQ. We arrived at Cypress Hills Provincial park and set up our tents in the beautiful Lock Loman area of the park. That evening we went on a horse back trail ride, went to Lookout Point and Bald butte where we hiked and got caught in a rainstorm. The class had supper while waiting for dark so that they could attend the observatory, unfortunately we were hit by another big rainstorm and were unable to look through the telescope due to cloud cover and lightning.
Day 2 saw the class up early and head out to Fort Walsh. The class looked through the interpretive center with Eston school's grade 6's and then headed down to the Fort. As the class arrived they were greeted by a RCMP Corporal (in character) and took them through the Fort as if they were new raw recruits (There may have even been a cannon involved). The class learned some games of the time period and even did some fur trading. After lunch we went on a 6km hike out to the Cypress Hills massacre site and back (An interesting place with a very sad history). The class headed back to their campsites where they changed and had some fun on some paddleboats before having a late supper. The rest of the evening was a mix of games and campfire stories.
After a big couple of days, Day 3 was a slow sleepy start but we all made it to the visitor centre to take in the presentation on the Cypress Hills Geology followed by a lesson on Geocaching with GPS units. The class then headed back to their campsites one last time to pack up, clean up and head out. The class then headed to the Great Sand dunes near Leader where they had fun running and sliding. We hit the Big 10-4 in Leader for ice cream before finally arriving home Wednesday night. What a great trip! A huge thank you goes out to Mrs. Lori Beattie for organizing the trip and to our parent chaperones for accompanying, driving and teaching (Mrs. Joanne Elstad, Mr. Gavin Blackwell and Mr. Cole Flath). We couldn't have gone with out you.

The team has already competed in Meadow Lake and Maidstone. They came up against city teams in Meadow Lake and played some great matches, improving their skills each game. Maidstone had 25 boys teams and 25 girls teams; it was a very busy tournament. The boys were selected to wear PINK uniforms on the Friday night to showcase Breast Cancer Awareness. The team continues to mesh and their skills are improving rapidly. It is a very busy season for the team and many thanks to all the parents and chaperones who have been helping out!
Dinsmore Pickleball began with a group of adults' desire to become more active during the winter months. We started playing in the school gym in January 2017, with a group of 8-12 players coming out once a week. The game is easy to learn and fun to play for all ages. There are many YouTube videos that demonstrate the basics of the game, but you can learn quickly by playing! We were fortunate to obtain some funding from two local community groups to purchase 3 nets, balls and beginner paddles. Most players have now purchased their own paddles to help improve their game!
Once summer arrived, we taped out courts in the Dinsmore arena and played until the ice was put in. This was a great facility to play in as we were able to use full sized courts! So many of us are loving the game, we have now moved to playing twice a week and communicate through a group on WhatsApp! We are approaching a full year of playing pickleball in Dinsmore, and continue to encourage more participation from the community as it is a great game that promotes physical activity and socializing! If you are interested in playing pickleball, contact Ellen, Sue, or Janice. We'd love to have more players.
