Wranglers, Ryder Cup championship and carriage driving windup

TOUGH TEST AHEAD

The 100 Mile House Wranglers have a tough test Friday and Saturday as they go up against the Chase Heat in a home-and away weekend. Chase is one of the heavyweights in the Doug Birks Division and will be a handful for the younger, inexperienced Wranglers squad.

The puck drops at 7 p.m. on Sept. 30 at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre.

 

RYDER CUP SILVER

The 108 Men’s Golf Club representatives took second place in the The Ryder Cup championships in Williams Lake last weekend.

Williams Lake won the cup and Quesnel finished third in the tri-city competition.

The 100 Mile team Chris Stevens, Shane Wilkie, Lynden Jeffrey, Matt Mcneil, Lee Hansen, Bill Harris, Jim Laird, Jay Scott, Vern Jeffrey, Rob Douglas, Marvin Declare and Met Boyson.

“It was a cool, wet weekend, but it was great to play with this team,” said Hansen.

 

CARRIAGE DRIVING WINDUP

The final event of the carriage-driving season is the Cariboo Trails Field Driving Trials and the Heritage Pleasure Driving Classes at Huber Farm in 70 Mile House is on Oct. 1-2.

There will be a concession on site, and those wanting more information can contact Ken Huber at 250-456-6050 or huberx3@telus.net.

Folks will want to bring their cameras to capture the action.
