We begin this week by saying that we have finally broken the seal on the wonderful season of spring.
By Jake Kulland
As we write, temps are in the 50’s, and are expected to be at least, stretching out to near 70 degrees by the middle to latter part of next week. To say that the moods of everyone in the are is a large understatement. A huge shout out and thank you this week goes out to Rodney Agnes and Marty Tetrault. Rod donated use of his tractor and snow blower to clean off American Legion Field, and get it a lot more closer to being playable. Rod and Marty did the work to get most of the snow blown off, and their efforts are much appreciated by everyone involved in the program. Langdon-Edmore-Munich is scheduled to have their first home game of the year on April 30, and hopefully getting the snow off plus some warm sunshine will make everything work out. Thanks again fellas!
Spring sports go from idle to overdrive
With the nice weather, things will really be kicking in for spring sports. The Cardinals hardball team got their season started at St. Thomas on April 19, and will be going strong, as in the week ahead they have games at Walhalla versus Pembina County North on April 23, at Grafton April 26, and a makeup game at Park River-Fordville-Lankin in PR at 12 Noon on April 28. Meanwhile the Cards track team will finally get outside for some outdoor meets at Devils Lake on April 23, and at Cavalier on April 24. The Cardinals are still also scheduled to host a meet in Langdon on April 28. And finally the high school golf season will get underway on April 23, with the boys at Grafton and the girls at Cavalier. These are just a tiny sampling of the insane amount of activities that will be going on in the weeks ahead, so buckle up.
Langdon Country Club spring meeting April 24
We will leave you with a couple of notes from the Langdon Country Club. Their Spring Meeting will be held on April 24. Among the items of business that will be discussed are filling the position of board member and current club president Cody Pengilly, who is stepping down after seven years overall on the board. Also the issue of a water source for the club, which becoming a big concern, also will be talked about. All members are encouraged to attend the meeting, which begin sometime after 6:00 p.m. The kitchen will be open, as Sabrina Marcelin is and will be doing her usual fantastic job running it again this year. Also Randy Hill, secretary of the Tuesday Mens League at the course, tells us that he is now taking registrations for 2-Man teams in both the 3:30 p.m. and 6pm shifts. To get your team signed up, just call or text Randy at 701-370-1118. The league will begin on May 22.
