Jake’s take on sports

Basketball camp time


Posted on 6/20/15

By Jake Kulland

We start this week by apologizing for not getting with you last week, but we are back in the saddle.  There is a basketball camp starting in Langdon June 22-25.  It is for boys and girls in grades 3-8 and will be held at the Langdon High School.  It is open to any boy or girl in the area.  Contact the Langdon High School for more information.  Hopefully this will be well attended, as this should be a great opportunity for kids to work on their skills and get some good coaching on the fundamentals of hoops.

School Foundation Tournament is coming June 27

Chalmer Dettler, one of the organizers of the Langdon Area School District Foundation Golf Tournament tells us that there are still openings for two more teams.  Currently there are 20 four person teams signed up for a total of 80 golfers.  To sign up your team, contact Chalmer at 701-256-5431.  It can be a mens, womens or mixed team.  This is one of the highlights of the season at the Langdon Country Club, and a good time is always had by all.  Congratulations also go out this week to Langdon natives Justin Carlson and Matt Bachman, who won the Cavalier County Memorial Hospital Foundation Charity Golf Tournament held June 13 with a two person scramble team score of 65.  Complete results and pictures from that event can be found in this weeks paper.

It’s street dance time

The street dance season is upon us, and two big ones are coming the weekend of June 26-27.  Munich will have a dance June 26 with Andy Wakeford (yes, that Andy Wakeford) and Optimum Sounds pumping out the tunes on main street. The Munich Fire Department will also draw for their annual raffle that evening, and they will be cooking up brats and hot dogs throughout the night.  June 27 is a huge day and night in Langdon with a number of events planned including a street dance sponsered by the Langdon Eagles Club and Sporty’s, featuring the great music of the Downtown Horns from Grand Forks on the Boyd Plaza stage.  Let’s hope for some awesome weather for both events!

A great story coming next time around

We always love hearing about the good things that area athletes are doing, especially when they have strong ties to our area.  Well, next week we will tell you about two such people who are related in some shape or form to much of Cavalier County and beyond.  Look for that next time we visit.

“See ya!” next week!
