Monday Morning.

Good morning,I just thought I'd post a few thoughts on the blog before I kick-start my interviews for the Sports Fix. This weekend seemed to just fly by. I did not attend the fishing derby on Saturday due in large part to the fact that I've been battling a chest-cold for a full week now. I wish I could say that I'm feeling better, but judging from the title of this post, things seem to be stagnant in that regard.


Here is a Fishing Derby summary from Rawlco Radio's Chris Mangatal:

Jackfish Lake was a busy place Saturday as thousands of people showed up for the annual fishing derby.

Temperatures sat around minus 30 degrees for the day, but the fishermen were toughing it out and had a good time.

Nathan Eckel and Spencer Sack were both junior winners of the event. Stuart Toevs (tayves) won the over 11 and a half thousand dollar 50/50 and Mike Busse of Warman won the quad.

Out of the 164 fish caught on the day, Scott Kozar of Kindersley came out with the biggest catch to take 1st place.


The complete SJHL Playoff picture is set.

The Battlefords North Stars and Flin Flon Bombers will square off in the Bauer Conference Survivor Series starting Friday, February 25th in the Battlefords. Game two goes Saturday (Feb 26th) and game three goes Monday night from the Whitney Forum in Flin Flon.

Game four (if neccessary) would take place on the Tuesday, and game five would go Thursday if required.

Down South, the Estevan Bruins and Melville Millionaires will face off in the other Survivor Series. Melville clinched fifth with Notre Dame's 5-3 loss to Weyburn yesterday.

Weyburn will face Kindersley in the 2-3 matchup in the Sherwood. Melfort battles Humboldt in the 2-3 series in the North.

The La Ronge Ice Wolves await the winner of the Stars/Bombers series.


Only one regular season game remains for the North Stars, and it goes tomorrow night in Kindersley. The Stars dropped a 5-3 decision to Kindersley on Friday night. Overall not a bad effort, but some mistakes ended up costing them.

Tonight on the CO-OP Leisure Time Sports Fix, I am supposed to be speaking with Kindersley head-coach Rockie Zinger.

It will be Zinger's first appearance on the show. I'm excited.


Another guest tonight will be the play-by-play voice of the Prince Albert Raiders, Drew Wilson. Wilson works for our Rawlco affiliate in Prince Albert and has made several appearances on the program over the years. Together we'll talk about the WHL's Eastern Conference playoff picture. Right now the Raiders are in, with a five-point edge on the ninth seeded squad.

You can catch the show tonight at 8 on CJNB/CJNS.
