Please meet Brig-a-doon (Brigs for short). Brigs is a loving bundle of joy and energy.
He will be trained to be a service dog in our program.
Right now he is with one of the best trainers in our program.
Special thanks to each of you that has donated to the PAWS for VETERANS program.
You are helping save lives.

Hello, all. Check out what Kamsack 024 is doing: starting a bagpipe band!
Here is a request from Jim Woodward, Branch President (and D4Z1 Commander), for bagpipe supplies:
Kamsack Legion is sponsoring a bagpipe band. We are just getting started and are in need of used bagpipe supplies. Would you mind approaching the various branches of Command to see if anyone would have stuff to part with or sell?
Branches, to get a hold of Jim, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone him at (306) 601-9024.

The Sports Committee is dedicated to making the sports program continue to be viable in the spirit of comradeship. Over the past several months we have been discussing ways to increase participation and to smooth out some of the issues that occur during the events. Following these discussions, we have made the following changes:
1) Golf and Cribbage will start at the branch level, proceed to Zone and District and then proceed to Provincials. Curling, Darts and 8-ball will start at the branch level then proceed directly to Provincials. Bowling will start at the branch, proceed to District and then proceed to Provincials.
2) For Cribbage provincials, the start times for the various categories will be interchanged. This means Singles will play one game, then Doubles will play a game and so forth until all games for each category are played. This will prevent participants from sitting all day before their game even starts and will not affect those who play in multiple categories.
3) The recent golf survey sent to all the branches brought in some good recommendations and with the recommendations, we will be working on an overall strategic plan to enhance the experience.
Last, we are finalizing provincial hosts and dates, mainly just waiting on confirmations. But to start you off...
Curling will held January 27-29, 2017, in Carlyle. The rest will come to you shortly.
The following sports forms are PDF fillable, so you can use your computer to fill them out. Or you can simply print them and use them the old way. (Note, though, that the Golf form is still in the works and will be provided as soon as possible.)
