Jake’s take on sports

Can it really be almost July

Posted on 6/28/14

Let’s start this week by mentioning what we always seem to talk about this year — Where has the summer gone.  Here we are on the brink of Independence Day, where did June go?  Well it went at warp speed like usual, and July seems to fly by even faster.  Get out and enjoy the short summer months while you can.  There are lots of great activities coming up, the Fourth of July weekend in Walhalla, the Pembina County Fair in Hamilton and of course Musicfest in Langdon, just to name a few. There never any shortage of fun things to do in our area, so have at them!

Basketball camp goes well
Kyle Knutson and Ethen Askvig, organizers of the Langdon Area Basketball Camp, wanted us to thank all of the kids who came out for it and for everyone who helped make it a success.  There were 53 boys and girls in grades 3-8 from all over Cavalier County that participated in the camp.  All around good times for area kids to improve their skills and fun was also had by all.

Langdon Red Sox looking for games
You may notice that there are no stories about Langdon Red Sox American Legion Baseball this week.  The reason is they just haven’t played a lot of games as of late.  They played at an invitational tournament in Bottineau June 21, losing to Bottineau 6-4 and to Renville County 6-5.  Coach Dylan Crockett said the team played well in both contests.  Langdon was to play at an invitational in Carrington June 28, but due to some weddings they had to cancel. For now Langdon’s next game is at home versus Larimore in two league games start at 5:00pm at American Legion Field.

New bricks at Boyd Block Plaza
If you good people get the opportunity we invite you to the check out the new personalized bricks at Boyd Block Plaza in Langdon. They recognize a variety of things, families, memorials, businesses — you name it.  It is actually pretty neat to look at them.  You can buy a brick for yourself by calling Langdon City Hall. And we want to give a huge shout out to Langdon Fire Chief Jeremy Schuler for installing the bricks.  It’s one a the many behind the scenes things that Jeremy does for Langdon and the area.  Great job Shoob, and many thanks from all of us.

Before we leave, we want to wish Tom and Jayne Parker best of luck in their move to Fargo, you will be missed!  “See ya!” next week!
