Page 8 THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, JUNE 28, 2017 By Kevin Skavhaug Independence Day... Unofficially, we're at the midpoint of summer.., date wise that is. Weather wise it seems we're stuck in early May. But now that the 4th is here, summer should even- tually show itself. So, the countdown is on. School will return quicker now that the 4th is here, but there is still time to get some summer in. Here's a list of things to consider doing be- fore it's over. Grab a pole and head to the Red River. Most people I know head west for their fishing. But east might be something to consider. Last spring before school was out I ran into a couple kids from school who were buy- ing some catfish gear down in Grand Forks. At first I thought they were getting geared up for some paddle- fishing. Huge rods and reels, a spool of 30 lb test and big heavy weights. But it wasn't for paddlefish. They said they've been catfishing on the Red and their normal gear wasn't big enough. I've never gone cat fishing, might be the summer to try it. Horse Racing... If you enjoy horses and watching them run and you've never made a trip to Assiniboia Downs, there still are many opportunities to head across the border and take it in. Most of the races up there now take place at night, but they get done early enough that you can still be home by 11:00 pm. As they say, it re- ally is "Galloping Good Times." Speaking of things to do in Winnipeg and if you don't mind, this next one is not sports related no matter how I can try spin it. But if you were a fan of the TV series "Downton Abbey" and like Beatles mu-, sic, Celebrations Dinner the- atre is the place to go... should be a good way to spend a couple hours. But back to the right genre.., of course there is baseball to get to (the local team is tearing it up this summer), golfing to get in, more fishing, fling some ar- rows, paddle a river, do some camping, or if you' re not into anything that requires exer- tion, just relax in the back yard. But hurry, summer will be over before we know it. for win v. first rallies Photos: Larry Bid Top Right: Nate Zavalney keeps his eye on the ball against Fargo in the f,th Annual Jack Williams Shootout American Legion Tournament in Fargo.
