Interlakes carpet bowlers bring home silver medals from BC Senior Games

Community news happening around the Interlakes area

Several South Cariboo Region residents represented the North Central Zone at the 2013 BC Seniors Games in Kamloops

Many congratulations go to Interlakes carpet bowlers who earned the silver medal for Fours at the BC Seniors’ Games held in Kamloops, Aug. 20-24.

For the first time, Deka Lake’s Rose and Robert Magnusson, who usually play with Maureen and Ed Van Gool, were partnered with Sheridan Lake’s Kitty Carroll and Marion Mickelsen for the win.



Deka Family Bingo is over until Dec. 11.

Going into that Christmas game, the Super G pot stands at $494, which would make a nice little extra at just the right time.



Bridge Lake Community School (BLCS) is back in action with pickleball Monday evenings at 6:45 p.m.; $2 drop-in fee.

At 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 20, learn how to make perogies, for $10; registration deadline is Sept. 18.

Conservation Outdoor Recreation Education (CORE) courses are being offered by instructor Curt Roy. The one for youth aged 10-15 years comprises four sessions of four hours at 3:30 p.m., Sept. 24-27. The cost is $150.

The adult CORE runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sept. 28-29; cost $150. Adults who already have PAL need to stay only four hours. Registration deadline is Sept. 18.

On Sept. 28 at 10:30 a.m., Elaine Kisby will give garden tips. Bring perennials and swap for something you don’t have. The cost is $8.

A new dog obedience course commences at 6 p.m. Oct. 10, and continues on Oct.17, 24 and Nov. 7. The cost is $60 per dog.

Minimum participant numbers are always required, so register as early as possible for all classes; call BLCS co-ordinator Gail Larson at 250-593-4351.


Cougar sighting

Mid-morning on Aug. 29, Bob Barwell called the conservation officer (CO) to report a cougar “walking down his driveway” near Cottonwood Bay Road and Highway 24,

only to be told that there had been “numerous sightings in the area over the previous six weeks.”

The CO said they “suspect juveniles that don’t know to stay away from residences,” and that he would come out and look for a possible carcass to explain the increased number of sightings.



Hot and spicy

Interlakes youth group, Teen Space, is holding its first annual Chili Cook-off from noon to 2 p.m. at Interlakes Hall, Sept. 22.
