June Trueman is ready for her 21st Grey Cup

By Ashley Martin

KICK-OFF June Trueman lights up as she recalls that night six years ago in Toronto after the Saskatchewan Roughriders won the Grey Cup. As the snare drummers cut their instruments loose from the railings where they were taped for support, Trueman, alto saxophone around her neck, and her fellow Rider Pep Band

members regaled the crowd with the jaunty tunes of the Green and White. On Roughriders, on Roughriders Plunge right through that line. March the ball on down the field A touchdown every time! When they began their march out of Rogers Centre, they gathered a following. They didn’t have a parade permit — this was just a “walk,” says Trueman, air quoting the word with her hands. The crowd grew as it followed

the band. “By the time we got to our hotel, I think we had about 2,000 people following us. That was so fun,” says Trueman, who, at age 84, is the eldest member of the pep band. Along the way, they’d walk into a bar, play through and walk out again. At one bar they heard: “You can’t play in here.” Instead, everyone went outside to hear the pep band. The fact that the CN Tower was lit

up in green stands out most in her memory. That same trip, she met one of her many friends from Grey Cups past — Brett Sylvester, a Blue Bombers fan and co-owner of All-Star Tours in Winnipeg. The two were walking down the same street and got pulled in by a TV camera, as fans of the league’s two finalists. They shared a kiss and made national news. Trueman’s memories from the

past 20 Grey Cups can fill a book. Actually, they fill 20 books. Trueman is the unofficial record-keeper of the Saskatchewan Roughrider Pep Band, of which she’s been a member since its inception in 1993. Interspersed with typewritten captions describing dates, places and people, and articles and photos clipped from the Leader-Post, are photographs of band members — scrapbooked behind the plastic flaps of old-fashioned photo albums.

Little did I know ... that that beat-up old saxophone was going to take me to every major city in Canada. — Trueman

Seniors discounts! ❘ Fully Licensed!

Trueman isn’t as spry as she once was — osteoporosis in her back keeps her from marching with the band anymore — but she can stand for a while and can play sitting down: Her lungs aren’t a problem. She plays in Section 16 every home game, a spritzer bottle along for those dreadfully hot games, and bundled up in layers underneath her pep band jacket for the cold ones. She’s one of only two pep band members who have travelled with the team to attend every Grey Cup across the nation. Rhonda Kerr-White is the other. This year is their 21st. The band has a different Grey Cup experience than most fans though — or even most volunteers, who are required to serve a minimum of 15 hours. “We put in more like 100 hours or more,” says Trueman. In 2003, when Regina last hosted Grey Cup, the pep band posted 73 official performances. In Toronto in 2007 it was 80. Those numbers don’t include the impromptu sets they play any chance they get.

Whether it’s entertaining fans waiting in line to get into a venue, or a 5 a.m. wake-up call to appear on CTV’s Canada A.M., they relish the opportunity to play. “We don’t go to Grey Cup to sleep,” she says laughing — a word about June, she laughs a lot. “Mind you when you get back it might take you 10 days to recuperate. “It’s so nice to be treated like celebrities,” she adds. “At the venues … when we come in, everybody starts yelling and cheering.” Though the Riders’ is no longer the only pep band in the CFL (Toronto’s ArgoNotes have been around since 1995), the band is still treasured across the league. It was once called the official band of the CFL by the league’s commissioners, for obvious reason. “They celebrate not just Saskatchewan but every other city, which is great,” says Sylvester. “Without them I think (Grey Cup) wouldn’t be the same. It’s nice when they come from Saskatchewan and do their songs about Winnipeg and about every other team.” The pep band livens up the crowd at Mosaic Stadium during every Roughriders home game.

Without them I think (Grey Cup) wouldn’t be the same. It’s nice when they come from Saskatchewan and do their songs about Winnipeg and about every other team. — Brett Sylvester

“I think it means a lot to the various party rooms and the fans,” adds Kerr-White. “I think we are a huge part of the Grey Cup festivities wherever we are, because we promote the CFL. “A lot of comments are made on the Thursday night, ‘Oh, the pep band’s here, now Grey Cup can start.’ We’ve built that reputation over the years.” And Trueman is a big part of that. “Overall, she’s like an ambassador,” says Kerr-White. “Everywhere we go … (there’s) three or four people coming, ‘Where’s June? Where’s June?’ Because they recognize her. She’s just a sweetheart. “She’s synonymous with the name pep band.”

June Lane, born in 1929, got her start playing soprano saxophone in

the Melville town band during high school. That experience ended when the town, looking to make some money, decided to sell the less necessary instruments, soprano sax included. “But at that time we had no money. We were dirt poor in Melville,” says Trueman, whose father had a lowpaying job with the provincial government in Regina. Likewise, there was no money for piano lessons, which is her only regret about her childhood. “It was pretty hard times but I’m kind of glad we were brought up when we did because we appreciate everything a lot more.” When June married Clifford Trueman in 1950, they moved to Regina and had three children. A longtime Rider fan, Trueman named her firstborn after Glenn Dobbs, a Roughriders player/coach from 1951-53. Two daughters, Marjorie and Diane, followed.

Everywhere we go … (there’s) three or four people coming, ‘Where’s June? Where’s June?’ Because they recognize her. She’s just a sweetheart. — Rhonda Kerr-White

When Diane joined, then quit, the Lions Band, it was Trueman’s reintroduction to music. “I missed all the excitement, (the) band going here, there and everywhere.” Her solution was to join the Lions Adult Band.

SECOND QUARTER In 1993, director Bob Mossing had the seed of an idea to start a pep band like the ones he’d seen in American football stadiums. Trueman was all for it. It started with 27 members, and has grown to 40-plus, with musicians like Dustin Guest, the youngest at age 22, and Trueman, the oldest. “There’s no age barrier to music.” Joining the band meant attending a game in person for the first time in her life, at age 64, and her first Grey Cup that November in Calgary, a matchup between the Edmonton Eskimos and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The Saskatchewan Roughrider Pep Band is a staple for many fans at the CFL’s biggest celebration. Because even though they wear green and white, they celebrate the entire league and its players. This year the band has taken to learning the fight songs of Rider players’ alma maters — Weston Dressler’s University of North Dakota and Darian Durant’s University of North Carolina among them. They know the songs of every team in the league, from Roar Lions to the Alouettes’ Fight On. For the teamless Atlantic Schooners, they’ve learned Newfoundland folksong I’s the B’y. “With us when we started, if they didn’t have a song, we made one up,” says Trueman. “Mind you, it wasn’t always complimentary.”

THIRD QUARTER For Grey Cup this year, they’ve got a few new ones to learn — the TSN theme and Paint the World Green among them. Trueman had the sheet music set up in her kitchen on a small stand, across from a rack of green shirts and jackets emblazoned with an ‘S’. She was working on memorizing the songs, though, “This computer at

this age isn’t all that great,” she says, pointing at her head. Actually, her mind is as sharp as ever, but her body may hold her back this year. “(I hope) I can manage to get through it,” she says, ever laughing. She needs a painkiller to get through the games now; that never used to be the case. She no longer stands at the front of the band because by the time she gets there, everyone else is ready to play, so she takes her spot at the back of the group. If their gig requires standing too long, she’ll take a chair, but it’s not her preference. A past member once told her, “June, even if I have to push you in a wheelchair, you’re still going to be with us in the band.” But Trueman doesn’t want that. She prefers to sneak away if she needs to sit. “I don’t like the attention drawn. I don’t want to be that old.” But she gets attention if seated, anyway. Kerr-White recalls in 2011 in Vancouver, they found Trueman a chair next to an information booth, then marched away to play. “We come back, who’s got the people around? It wasn’t the information booth,” she says. Trueman’s ever positive attitude makes her a people magnet. She gets a little flirty with the men, too. Even though a caricature by local artist Hugh Fry proclaims her SAXiest Grannie, “Everybody knows I’m so old, I’m no danger to any of the wives,” she says, laughing again. “But I just have so much fun. I really lay on the dog sometimes. “I’ve been a widow for quite a while. And I wouldn’t have it any other way, when I hear the stories that go around. I have too much fun this way. I don’t have any husband to say at the door, ‘Where the hell have you been all this time?’” “She’s got so many boyfriends. I’m one of her boyfriends, did she tell you that?” says Sylvester, chuckling. “I think she called me one of her specials.” In Calgary in 2009, Trueman gave a not-so-traditional hello to another friend, Jason, one of the kilt-wearing Box J Boys from Hamilton.

We don’t go to Grey Cup to sleep. Mind you when you get back it might take you 10 days to recuperate. — Trueman

“He’s swishing his fanny with his kilt, forgetting that there’s other saxophones; my hands don’t have to be busy. I just stepped forward and (lifted his kilt),” says Trueman. Her answer to the obvious question? “Here he had some white shorts with a big maple leaf on them.” That incident will go down in infamy for her. Last year, a Winnipeg piper warned his compatriots, “‘You watch out for June, she’s the kilt flipper,’” she recalls. “I’ll never live that down. But it’s fun.” Of course, Jason forgave her the indiscretion. He still brings a gift for her each Grey Cup. “She’s just an amazing woman,” says Sylvester. “Very nice lady, and I don’t know how she does it boy, but she still gets around.” When she retired in 1989 from her 25-year job as a cashier at the Sears Bargain Centre, Trueman had more time for all her hobbies. Aside from band (she’s also a member of the Prairie Winds Concert Band), she plays cribbage, enjoys the slots at Casino Regina, and visiting with her many friends. She’s an avid volunteer, working bingos to fundraise for the Bethune Lions and CNIB. She’s a top seller of the Rider Pep Band’s Grey Cup pool tickets — it’s not cheap to send 40some people to Grey Cup every year; the band’s budget is around $80,000. She also sponsors seeing-eye dogs for the Lions. At $6,000 apiece, she’s sponsored seven so far; it’s one of her favourite charities. Her work with the Lions earned her a trophy this year for Lion of the Year. Travelling is another great love. She’s been to far-flung places like Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Belgium, Scotland and Italy. In Rome, she found a Rider shirt pinned to the Sistine Chapel. She’ll never forget hearing the birds in the Amazon rainforest at the Panama Canal, a trip she recommends to anyone. “It’s so educational to travel,” says Trueman. She loves road trips, too, to visit Diane, who lives in Ohio. She last went in 2011, driving her new Camry right off the lot. “It takes me four days to get there.

But I love to drive.” Two trips remain on her travel bucket list: A Rhine River Cruise and the Branson Christmas light tour. She’s not sure she’ll ever experience the latter, though — it’s during Grey Cup. “I don’t think I’m ever going to get there or else I’m going to be too old and too decrepit to ever think of going on a tour. But that’s still on the bucket list. Who knows, hey?”

FOURTH QUARTER Trueman is a collector. She’s got wall displays full of pins, and has now been to many of the countries whose stamps she’s collected over the years. It’s a little unreal for her; growing up in Melville, she never got anywhere. “We didn’t even have a car. We maybe got to the lake on the back of a truck if you had 10 cents to carry to go the beach for a Sunday. “I guess that’s where I got my lust for travelling.” Buying a second-hand saxophone from her daughter’s friend in 1972 contributed to her travel too. “Little did I know ... that that beatup old saxophone was going to take me to every major city in Canada.” After separating from her husband, Trueman bought a house in 1974 for $22,000. She painted it mint green; the colour compliments the Riders Rule poster in the front window. As she’s physically slowing down with age, people have suggested she move into a condo. She detests the idea. “Can you see me when I have to memorize the music at home, start playing the saxophone at midnight? I don’t think so.” But she knows her life will change eventually. She can’t march anymore, and housework takes twice as long. “I can see the end coming, that’s my problem,” says Trueman. “The day I have to give up pep band, the day I think my life is over.” But they insist she’ll be involved forever. “She’s there ’til she can’t do it anymore,” says Kerr-White. Pep band wouldn’t be the same without her. “If you asked anybody who is the standout, I would be tempted to say they’re going to say June.” amartin@leaderpost.com

GREY CUP ART PROJECTS

Local artists get sporty for Grey Cup

Tackled: A Football Play stars (front row) Garland Headley, Brenda Milligan-Davis, Geoff Hughes (back row) Tiffany McGough, Don Monk and Dawn Alexis Suchoboki. QC photo by Don Healy

By Ashley Martin Sports and the stage largely exist in separate realms. Sports are played on a field or in an arena, enjoyed by people who like to cheer. Theatre is set on a stage, enjoyed by people who like to intellectualize their experiences. These stereotypes are ones Colleen Sutton is trying to break. The former Saskatchewanian will be performing her one-woman show, RiderGirl, during Grey Cup. Her first show is tonight.

She recognizes sports and arts do not usually go hand in hand. Until she wrote this show, Sutton had never acted in a sports-themed play before, but it was an easy connection for her to make. The 2009 Grey Cup game bridged the two areas for the avid Rider fan. “By being at the game, I recognized why we’re all there. Why we’re all there is to be taken somewhere emotionally ... Well, that’s why we go to the theatre,” said Sutton, who quit her job with the Canadian Forces to pursue acting.

THEATRE RiderGirl Nov. 20, 21 and 23, 7 p.m. Nov. 22 and 23 at 2 p.m. The Artesian, 2627 13th Ave. Tackled: A Football Play Nov. 21-23. Applause Dinner Theatre, 1975 Broad St.

That game also cemented her need to write about being a Rider fan. Rider Nation has helped her through hard times and home sick-

ness. It’s given her a lift when she’s been down. Through RiderGirl, she wanted to connect with fellow fans. “Every time I looked at those stands, I just felt like I was home,” said Sutton, who lives in Ottawa and is attending her 15th Grey Cup this weekend. Brenda Milligan-Davis’s process was a little different in writing her musical, Tackled: A Football Play. She wanted to celebrate Grey Cup’s return to Regina. “I made a conscious effort for art to meet football,” said Milligan-Davis,

who also directs and acts in the play. Tackled combines sports and theatre on a different level: The head coach of the Saskatchewan Roughriders must direct a play in order to receive an inheritance from his friend’s will. The story reflects Regina and Rider history. The newspaper critic is named Murray Vanstone (do those names ring any bells, Leader-Post readers?), the millionaire is Ron Reed and the head coach is Eagle Austin. Continued on Page 11

Heather Cline’s sport-art idea was also inspired with the advent of the home Grey Cup. Cline usually plans years in advance for her exhibitions, but she thought of Inside/Outside Fan on a whim this summer.

A longtime football fan — she grew up in a Saskatoon household wherein the Roughriders were relegated to Regina’s team, not Saskatchewan’s, when they were losing — Cline had been thinking about Grey Cup coming up, and Mosaic

Stadium coming down. The idea blossomed into a series of paintings looking at Taylor Field from all angles. Audio interviews add a fun dimension to the acrylic images of the stadium, exploring fans’ memories and

opinions about the Riders and the sport. “It kind of covers all the aspects of being a fan. You’ve got passion, you’ve got heart, you’re serious but also you can be completely goofy,” said Cline, for whom arts and sports

Jason Bond: Gold is the colour for this Bomber fan By Ashley Martin When Winnipeg Blue Bombers fan Jason Bond attended his second Labour Day Classic in 2004, his friends donned blue garbage bags. He was unimpressed by their effort, especially when compared to the quirky characters he witnessed in Rider Nation. It got him thinking about his own crazy costume idea, inspired by his walk to work. When Bond moved to Winnipeg from Portage la Prairie in 2003, he got a job near the Manitoba legislature, a domed building on top of which stands a golden statue of a boy. “After experiencing a few Labour Day Classics, I always thought ‘that would be the perfect costume,’” says Bond. He became the Golden Boy for the first time in 2007 and adopted the character sporadically since. But this year, Bond decided to fully embrace the persona. He attended each home game this season — as well as the Labour Day Classic in Regina — painted gold. The costume has evolved since the first time. Bond has nearly mastered the intricacies of applying body paint, and the props have improved with time. As he attends his first-ever Grey Cup this weekend in Regina, Bond won’t look exactly like this. Saskatchewan weather in November is not known to be kind, after all, and next-to-nudity would be an invitation for frostbite. But in addition to his layers (winter coat, long johns — all the standard winter game wear) and a Bombers jersey, he’ll have his trademark golden face, mug and wheat sheaf, so there’ll be little confusion. Bond prefers the extreme cold to the alternative, anyway. Hot-weather games are the worst games to be the Golden Boy — and it’s not just about his comfort level. When he sweats, the gold paint turns that most despised of colours for a Bomber fan: green. “I hate it so much because I don’t want to look green. I’ve always kept tissue and napkins inside the beer cup for moments where I start sweating,” says Bond. “Heat is the enemy of the Golden Boy.” You’ll likely catch Bond in all his golden glory at some point during the festival. And if you recognize him, let him know: His favourite part of this get-up is being noticed.

1.

TORCH MUG: “I turned it into a beer mug as a way to have fun with it.”

2.

CROWN: “I did have a real crown; lost it during Labour Day Classic. ... I found some fake leaf, which is also spray painted gold.”

3.

BODY PAINT: His preferred brand is Mehron gold paint, which was hard to come by this year. Winnipeg’s Harlequin Costume store is perpetually out of stock, so people outside the province have shipped it to him. “It’s a theatre makeup paint so it’s also combined with a waterproof mix. If fans try to destroy the costume, there’s not a greater sense of doing that than by pouring liquid on me.”

4.

WHEAT SHEAVES: Until this year, his brother would take wheat from a farmer’s field and spray paint it gold.

5.

SHORTS: Spandex from American Apparel. “In 2007, I took a blue Speedo and I spraypainted it gold. It was the only thing I could think of.”

6. FLIP FLOPS: “Mike’s Hard Lemonade is sold with a pair of sandals every summer. I make them my ‘Golden Boy’ shoes.”

pa r e n t t o pa r e n t

Each week QC gathers advice from parents to share with other moms and dads. This week we asked:

Did you (or will you) put your child in sports?

REG00183309_1_1

“The older boys were involved in soccer, taekwondo and hockey. The older two had expressed an interest, the younger one was to keep him busy and out of trouble. The little ones have taken swimming lessons. We recently acquired a hot tub and wanted them both to feel comfortable in the water. If and when they express an interest in a sport, I will definitely look into it.” — Carla Contreras “Probably, kids need an energy release. I am going to put them in something (I’m) just not sure yet. They are still quite little.” — Melissa Meaker “My oldest daughter is in gymnastics and starts skating in a few weeks; my youngest is too little for sports in our area.” — Ashley Pratt “I want to, but I don’t agree with taking away the winning/losing thing.” — Katelynn Sherwood “My children are very involved in sports. My son is seven and does baseball in the summer and hockey in the winter. My daughter is 12 and is very involved in dance as well as badminton and cross-country and volleyball. I think having children involved in sports is good for them.” — Crystal Robertson “My boys asked to play T-Ball when they were four. They played this past spring and will do so again in May. They absolutely loved it. I think involvement in sports is important for children to learn turn taking, the importance of team work, character building and cooperation.” — Michelle Grodecki “I would like my child to be active. I’m thinking (I’d like) to put her into gymnastics later on; she can get good skills for cheerleading, as well as hip hop dancing.” — Iryna Fedyk

“Physical activity is important for children, so, yes we did put them in sports. Both of our kids played soccer at five to six years old, then field hockey from about Grade 6 through first year university. Our son also played hockey seven days a week from Grade 1 through Grade 12. Today, they both remain active young adults pursuing a variety of sports.” — Judy S. “Yes we do and will continue to put our other children in when they get old enough. Sports teach kids so many good things; fun, hard work, teamwork, winning/losing, listening and exercise. It’s great that our children have to take direction from someone else! I think sports bring confidence and build self esteem. We have tried out a few different sports and found what not only suits our kids but what they also enjoy.” — Alysia Czmuchalek

Garage is a game-day party room By Ashley Martin WHO? Don Beck and his wife Dianne. WHAT/WHERE? The backyard garage of their southeast Regina home. WHEN? The couple has been together for 25 years and moved into this house 21 years ago. They converted the garage five years ago and have since expanded twice and insulated the space. WHY? As former Saskatchewan Roughriders season ticket holders, they used to go to a lot of the games. But when they weren’t at the stadium, they’d get together with friends to watch at home. People gravitating to their garage to smoke eventually led to the party space. “Our garage was never used for much but storage,” says Dianne. Since their basement was always sports-themed, with Riders and Canadiens memorabilia, they just moved the Rider stuff outside. “He’s a collector of crap,” says Dianne with a laugh. “You want to make 26 years?” Don replies. “Piffles Taylor just rolled over in his grave.” Since adapting their garage, Don has continued to collect things. “He just went crazy the last four years buying pictures, jerseys and helmets,” says Dianne. The space is a reflection of their lifelong Rider fandom. “I’ve been a Rider fan since I was six years old. I know nothing different,” says Don. “It’s bred right into you. You don’t have a choice.” HOW? Today, with two TVs and wall-to-wall-to-ceiling Riders memorabilia, “Clubhouse 23” is a Rider fan’s dream. The items range from quirky (bobbleheads and clocks), to vintage (archival photos and a 1994 water bottle), to autographed (a signed Kerry Joseph jersey and dozens of player photos), to unique. An autographed Plaza of Honor helmet with a watermelon slice painted on is Don’s favourite, while a steel autobody-painted two-dimensional helmet is Dianne’s. The infamous No. 34, Don’s favourite player of all time, is ubiquitous in this place. “You’ll notice there’s more George Reed than anything else in here,” he says. Even some furnishings are related to football: The two extra-wide couches came from the University of Regina Rams clubhouse, and some stackable chairs are courtesy of the Green and White Lounge. The fridge displays signatures of visitors from across the continent. Famous guests have included Dan O’Toole and Jay Onrait, formerly of TSN. For all its quirks, the garage reserves some functionality: The belowcounter drawers and cupboards house Don’s tools. In the summertime, the space expands outdoors. Actually, it does so in winter as well, with a Rider-etched firepit alight to keep the smokers warm. Though Don and Dianne plan on checking out the Grey Cup Festival this weekend, for the big game they’ll be right here. “It’s more than just a place to watch. We build a lot of good memories,” says Dianne. “We have a lot of good times here.”

To ensure there are no hassles at customs before leaving for Minot, here are a few tips: • Remember to bring proper identification. Make sure everyone travelling with you has proper documentation for leaving Canada. Birth certificates, passports and visas are the best insurance against problems at the border. • Visit a Canada Customs office to identify any valuables you may want to take to Minot from home.

recorded so that there are no problems coming back across the border. • Also, remember to check with Canada Customs if you plan to change or improve any part of your vehicle. If your vehicle breaks down while in Minot, the repairs must be declared at customs and you may not have to pay the duties. But if you improve your vehicle with special modifications (in other words, increase its value) Canada Customs law will no longer consider the vehicle Canadian.

Pick Minot State for size, cost; stay because you love it As a young athlete in Lethbridge, Alberta, Nigel Atwood knew he wanted to play football after high school. During his senior year, his athletic prowess caught the attention of several college recruiters. However at the end of the day, Atwood inked a deal with Minot State University (Minot, N.D.) to play for the MSU Beavers.

Lethbridge to Minot is more than 600 miles and a time zone away. It takes 11 hours to drive to Minot, but Atwood had his reasons for choosing MSU. “Logan Jones (MSU senior and defensive lineman) went to my high school (Lethbridge Collegiate Institute), so it was nice to know someone here. But it’s always been my

dream to play football in the United States. Over the years, I’ve gone to multiple football camps in the U.S. and found the level of playing is better,” Atwood said. For two years beginning fall 2010, Atwood was an offensive lineman and tight end for the Beavers. Then a back injury derailed his dreams, forcing him to take a year off from training and football. “Coach (Paul) Rudolph (MSU head coach) sat down with me and said ‘I don’t want to see you in a wheel chair someday, but I want you to be a part of the team,’” Atwood remembers. So in addition to working as a Canadian student assistant in the

Office of International Programs, Atwood became the tight end and full back student assistant coach. He reviews films, tends to equipment needs, reviews details and travel itineraries and coaches weight workouts. His eye for detail and proper form stem from his own football experiences on and off the field. A year to reflect and recuperate hasn’t been all bad for Atwood. In that time, he switched from strength to cardio training and lost 90 lbs. He also found his career: physical education. “I like fitness and I like kids,” he said. “For the past three years, I have helped with football camps in Minot and Lethbridge and decided I would like to teach high school and coach football.” Atwood will graduate in spring 2015. “I wasn’t sure how I’d like it coming down here,” he said, “but I‘ve loved it. Minot State offers a great opportunity.”

Make it a Hockey weekend

— Watch the stars of tomorrow at a Minot Minotauros game

Visit Minot!

For L-P Specialty Products Although the Minot Minotauros were able to get the franchise its first two ever playoff home games last season, they were unable to win it all. Fear not, the Minot Minotauros of 2013/2014 hope to give their loyal fans another shot at the gold this year. Although the Minotauros are a newer team, Minot is no stranger to junior hockey. From 1994-97, the Minot Top Guns were members of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League and in 2000-01, the Minot Muskies played in the America West Hockey League, which merged with the NAHL in 2003. The team may be American, but have always been Canadian friendly. Not only do they encourage their neighbours to the north to come watch a game or two, they also have a couple of Canadian players and a Canadian Head Coach. Originally hailing from Lyleton, MB, Marty Murray leads the team down in Minot. His professional playing career lasted a span of 15 seasons, and he is one of the most dedicated hockey men both on and off the ice. A former Western Hockey League All Star, Murray played four seasons with the Brandon Wheat Kings, where he was named the WHL Player of the Year in 1995-1996. During this time, he also represented Team Canada twice at the World Junior

Championships, winning Gold both times. At the 1995 World Junior Championships, Murray led the tournament in scoring, was named to the all-star team, and named Top Forward in the tournament. Murray was drafted by the Calgary Flames in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft and went on to play with the Calgary Flames, Philadelphia Flyers, Carolina Hurricane’s, and the LA Kings. He also played in the American Hockey League and captained the Saint John Flames to a Calder Cup Championship. Throughout his career he spent four seasons playing in Europe (Austria, Germany, and Switzerland) and was selected to play in four Spengler Cup tournaments representing Team Canada, winning three Gold Medals. Although making the transition from player to coach is a hard one, Murray looks forward to every minute of it, and invites Canadians to come witness his latest accomplishment. The Minot

Minotauros may currently be in second to last place in the NAHL Central division, but spectators and encouraging cheers could turn their season around. Get out and support Junior Hockey at its finest. A special $89.00 per night rate for fans, family, and friends of the Minotauros will even be available at the La Quinta Inn and Suites. Fans will even have a chance to win prizes. The 8 Puck Shootout is back once again this year. It will be a single elimination tournament during the first intermission of 15 Tauros games and include 16 of the Tauros’ biggest fans battling it out to win the grand prize. Fans should keep an eye on Facebook to enter.

If you want to get your loved one that high ticket item they’ve been dreaming of, Black Friday is the day to buy. Traditionally, Black Friday marks the beginning of Christmas shopping and the holiday season in the U.S. “Black Friday is probably the biggest shopping day of the year in the U.S,” explained Wendy Howe who works with Minot Conventions and Visitors Bureau. “Retail stores know that and plan for that, so major sales are expected, anticipated and planned for that day.” Walmart and J.C. Penny will be opening their doors to consumers the evening of Thanksgiving at 8pm and the majority of other retailers will be opening between midnight and 2 a.m. “It’s kind of a tradition for people to get up very, very early in the morning to try to be at the stores when the doors open, to try to get some of the best deals,” said Howe. This year, Thanksgiving falls on November 28, so shopping madness will

occur on November 29. Make sure to book your room now and go online to visitminot. org/coupons to check for Black Friday hotel specials. Canadian shopping outlets have now begun competing with the U.S. tradition by offering their own Black Friday sales. Of course there are still advantages to crossing the border. “No matter where you live it is always fun to go and shop somewhere else. And get a chance to go to some stores you don’t normally get to go to,” said Howe. “What we hear from Canadians is that they love to come to Minot and shop, especially on Black Friday because the deals are so good. A lot of times with our stores down here, even just during regular times, they are offering prices that are significantly less than what they see in Canada.”

Nov. 22 Hairball North Dakota State Fair Center Hairball is the world’s ultimate 80’s rock

impersonation act, recreating the goodtime party atmosphere of the decade with unmatched authenticity. The group weaves Guns ‘n Roses, Whitesnake, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Ozzy, AC/DC, Journey, Poison and more into the show’s set list. Hairball’s unique dual frontman assault, featuring veteran vocalists Bobby Jensen and Kris Voxx, sets them apart from all other 80s tributes. They copy the personas of the era’s legendary frontmen while rapidly changing elaborate costumes, then complete their transformations with dead-on visual and vocal performances. Alternating stage time, the two bring new characters to the stage every five to ten minutes. For instance, while Jensen has fans questioning whether or not he really is Paul Stanley from KISS, Voxx is backstage preparing for his insanely accurate Twisted Sister spot. This relentless, rapid-fire style is constant, enabling Hairball to represent more than 20 of the 80s’ biggest and most colorful

Sometimes the best part of a weekend away is the fact you don’t have to cook and can try new foods. Crossing the border means having the opportunity to experience restaurants that haven’t made it to Canada yet. “LongHorn’s Steakhouse is one of those places that just opened and is receiving rave reviews,” said Vanessa. “We have a Panera Bread that is supposed to open this winter which has everyone really excited. There isn’t an exact date announced, but it is coming. We also have the first Sonic DriveThru in North Dakota, so even though that opened a few months ago people can’t stop talking about it.” For those who are looking to visit a local deli, the family owned Dakota Market just opened its doors and is ready to serve clients and array of sandwiches and soups. They also have unique specialty foods store right in their café. Once your appetite is catered to you can work off the carbs by doing laps around the Dakota Square mall or some of the new department stores. “People seem to be really excited about all the new businesses opening, especially

places like Gordmon’s, they have a mix of everything.” said Vanessa “ We also just got a shoe carnival, which offers a wide variety of shoes at discounted cost.” For those who have never heard of the retail giant, it is a discount department store which sells name brand items at discounted prices. Their items include Of course, if you are looking for something a little more unique, you can always visit one of Minot’s locally owned boutiques. “There’s a new clothing store downtown called Michele F’s which offers a very unique selection of western boots and clothing. They offer brands you aren’t going to find at the mall or in any chain stores,” she concluded. “They really have something about them that you won’t find anywhere else in Minot. All their jewelry is handmade by the store owner herself. It is a family owned local business run by Michele and her two daughters. It is a very personal experience.” There is never a dull moment when visiting Minot. As the oil boom continues and the population grows, new businesses are needed to keep up. Each time visitors return to Minot, they can be sure to find something they have never seen before.

M Y FAV O U R I T E P L A C E

Stadium’s charm hinges on fans’ presence By Ashley Martin In 1995, Steven Flynn fell in love at Taylor Field. It was his first Saskatchewan Roughriders home game, and he’s been a fan of the team ever since. He’s hasn’t missed many home games since graduating from high school in 2003. The atmosphere and people make this the ideal spot in Regina for Flynn, who makes the trip regularly from his home in Swift Current.

Q: How long have you been a Rider fan? A: Since the day I went to my first game, which I think I was about 10. I remember coming back and I was just so pumped. It was in ’95 when they had the expanded seats for the first Grey Cup we ever hosted; it was the biggest game ever attended, so it was just big, and we upset Calgary that day. It was good. Q: How often do you come to Taylor Field? A: Whenever I can get a chance I go. I don’t have season tickets because I have about four or five groups (of friends) that have season tickets, so I just circle around and whenever there’s a ticket available I jump in on it. Q: What’s your best memory from Taylor Field? A: There’s a lot of them. Probably ’02 Labour Day when Rocky Butler, our third-string quarterback — no one had ever heard of him — came in and beat Winnipeg. And then there was also ’07 when we hosted our first playoff game in God knows how long and our first play was to DJ Flick for about 50 yards and a touchdown. I went to the Grey Cup that year and it was just a great start to the playoffs. I actually went to the game by myself because I couldn’t find tickets, so I bought one ticket off eBay and went by myself. And even though I went by myself, there was probably 30,000

friends that I had with me.

Q: What do you like about the stadium as a place? A: It’s not the most fancy place in the world, but it has character. I just like the people that are there; it just makes it a good experience. I like driving up from Swift Current always looking, seeing the stadium, the two pillars with the old players.

Q: Do you have a pre-game tradition? A: I like to get there way before and watch warm-ups, but some people I go with don’t like that. I’ve got to be there for when they say, ‘Bring ’em out, bring ’em out, bring ’em out.’ Q: What do you wear to the games? A: I have a mid-’90s Adidas jersey. I need a new one actually, but I have worn this jersey since I remember,

so I don’t like getting rid of it. (It’s a Rider jersey) but when Adidas was sponsoring the CFL. It was the best Christmas present my sister ever gave me was that jersey. It was I’d say ’97, ’96 ish.

Q: Do you ever think it’s not worth it to make the trip from Swift Current? A: No. Game days are the best time all year. Even (the regular season finale), it was a nothing game, might

have been cold, but it didn’t even cross my mind (not to come). This site has been the home of the Roughriders since 1910. In 1936, a grandstand was built and in 1947 it was renamed Taylor Field, after Neil (Piffles) Taylor, a former Riders coach. In 2006, Mosaic sponsored the stadium, which altered its name once again; it’s now known as Mosaic Stadium at Taylor Field.

CITY FACES #

G R E Y C U P F E S T I VA L V O L U N T E E R s

Pettigrew’s team is 3,000 strong By Ashley Martin Before Dave Pettigrew moved to Regina from Saskatoon in 1989 for a job at IBM, he’d only ever visited his new city to attend Saskatchewan Roughrider games. He recalls a playoff game in 1988, the year before he finished his mechanical engineering studies at the University of Saskatchewan. It was the first playoff game the team had had in years, and Pettigrew and his friend “froze our butts off.” The team didn’t fare too well either. But it was a big deal to come down to that game. “Just in general I think my memories and thoughts of Taylor Field are the absolute passion that the fans have,” said Pettigrew, the chairman of the 101st Grey Cup Festival Committee. “I’ve been a Rider fan as long as I can remember.” As a high school student at Saskatoon’s Aden Bowman Collegiate, he attended his first Rider game. In university he’d road trip to Taylor Field with friends to sit in the “university section,” Section 28. At the last Grey Cup Regina hosted in 2003, he sat in the temporary stands, scrunched too close for comfort to everyone around him for lack of space in the north end zone seats. In 2007, after the team brought home the prize, he and his wife Joann pulled their three children — Scott (now 16), Connor (13) and Nicole (11) — out of school for the parade. The family braved the cold, along with hundreds of other fans, and were there as the team hoisted the trophy on the steps of the Legislature. The moment was captured in one of the family’s most treasured photos. This year when Pettigrew attends the game with his wife, he’ll be a little worse for wear. For two years, he has put in hundreds of hours in his volunteer role helping organize the Grey Cup party. It’s all led up to this week. “I’m sure that sleep will be at a bit of premium,” said Pettigrew, who

will have committee meetings first thing every morning, and events to attend throughout the day and night. “But I’ll probably be more behaved than I’ve been at past Grey Cups.” At Pettigrew’s day job as president and CEO of Harvard Western Insurance, he’s used to leading large groups of people — though not quite as large as this weekend’s group, 3,000 strong. A keen volunteer, Pettigrew has been involved in Junior Achievement. He chaired the United Way campaign in 2001, spent six years on the board of the MacKenzie Art Gallery, and spent three years on the Sask Sport board of directors. He was vice-chair during the World Junior Hockey Championship, co-hosted by Regina and Saskatoon in 2009. “My wife says I’m somebody who has trouble saying no ultimately, but I think our city and our province

Joann and Dave Pettigrew and their children (left to right) Nicole, Connor and Scott stand in front of the Legislature after the Grey Cup celebration parade on Nov. 27, 2007. Photo courtesy Dave Pettigrew

are built so much on the backs of so many folks that give of their time,” said Pettigrew. “I do it because I think we all need to, and I also really

enjoy it. I have fun doing it.” For Celebration in Rider Nation, the 2013 incarnation of the Grey Cup festival in Regina, volunteers are working in lots of different areas — organizing downtown events, safety and security, hospitality and pageantry, CFL and formal events, and much more. About 350 volunteers spent months on subcommittees prior to the festival, and an executive committee of 30 people (including Pettigrew’s vice-chair Mark Stefan) met biweekly to plan. Regina’s is a different kind of festival than the past two Grey Cups in Vancouver and Toronto, which were largely staffed by professional event planners with far fewer volunteers. “Saskatchewan, that’s how we roll here. We’re a very volunteer-cultured province,” said Pettigrew. “We’re just blessed with that culture. ... Whether it’s curling or hockey or any kind of sport, cultural, community event,

Junos — people show up. They give tirelessly of themselves.” Because the staff and volunteers are so skilled, Pettigrew didn’t feel much pressure leading up to this week — except to ensure that the party is a celebration of the league, not just the home team. We all know Rider Nation is pretty dominant. When Pettigrew was in Toronto in 2007 to watch the Riders defeat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, he estimates the ratio of green to blue was 20 to 1 in the streets. “Ultimately I’m sure that 90 to 95 per cent of the fans here for the Grey Cup Festival will be Rider fans,” said Pettigrew. “We want it to be a CFL celebration. It’s a league celebration, so even if the majority of the folks are wearing green, we want them to go and celebrate with the Blue Bombers and with the Toronto Argonauts and Edmonton Eskimos and B.C. Lions.”

H o r t i c u lt u r e i n R i d e r n at i o n

Growing your own melonhead By Jackie Bantle Every year in Saskatchewan there is a strange phenomenon that occurs throughout the growing season. On hot summer days, families shopping at the local grocery store for a plump, refreshing watermelon (Citrullus linatus) find the bins empty. Meanwhile, in an urban centre known for its ‘pile of bones,’ 30,000plus humans gather to worship green-clothed men running around a grassy field chasing a brown, pointy egg-shaped object. Most of these spectators are also dressed in green-coloured clothes including green head coverings. Alas! The mystery of the mass evanesce (Latin for ‘to vanish’) of watermelon is uncovered. The Citrullus linatus are sitting on the heads of Roughriders fans. So instead of contributing to a province-wide watermelon shortage (or conversely to assure yourself of a supply), why not grow your own watermelon next summer? First, start with a cultivar that will mature during our growing season. Watermelon loves hot temperatures and sun. When searching for seed, look for cultivars that will mature in at least 75 to 80 days. Watermelons must be started indoors as transplants. Vine crops usually do not like to have their roots disturbed and watermelon is no exception to the rule. Start seedlings indoors approximately two to three weeks before transplanting out in Jiffy 7 Peat Pots. You can have your very own homegrown watermelon helmet in time for the Labour Day Classic. Photos courtesy Saskatchewan Roughriders and Jackie Bantle Cover the peat pots with a clear plastic. Don’t water until the seeds you intend to plant. Mulch may be the plastic and transplant the water- pollinate flowers.

ASK ELLIE

A crush is a fantasy, it’s time to come back to reality Q. Please help me… How to get my crush out of my head? Besotted in Brunei A. A crush can be a powerful fantasy that motivates you to look and act your best, and imagine a great romantic adventure. But it IS a fantasy. That’s because there’s some obstacle between you and the person you dream about… especially since you want to get rid of your constant images about this person. Perhaps he/she is much older, or already attached. So it’s an impossible dream, and eventually becomes unhealthy. Bring those same heightened feelings to someone available. If you’re already married, warm the link between you with some of your “crush” imagery… taking time to compliment, hug, and get re-connected. Q. My girlfriend of two years (we’re both in our mid-20s) cheated on me a year ago. I’d told her that I was OK with her having a (solely) sexual affair, as I think I’m quite open-mind-

Ask Ellie

ed in that regard, but that I wouldn’t want to know anything about it. However, three months later she met another guy at a university field trip, and confessed that she’d fallen in love with him and slept with him a couple of times. She said she wanted to forget about him and that such an event would never happen again. I’m certain that she’s serious about it. However, I cannot forget. It’s been hanging like a shadow over our otherwise happy relationship. How can I cope with this? Want to Forget A. You’re open-minded, which is mostly a good thing. But you’re not a fool. The fact that she “fell in love” so easily while still in a relation-

ship is what’s keeping you stuck with the memory. You need The Talk. Two years together shows commitment, but you’re both still young, she’s in university and meeting others, you may be too. She may be restless even while still caring deeply for you. You’ve had your trust shaken. Take a break. There’s no gain in forcing yourselves to pretend this never happened. It’ll still cloud your relationship until you take time apart, and possibly re-commit later, when you’re both more certain of what you want and can accept. Make it a clean break (no sleepovers) for six months before you discuss the future.

Q. I’m just 19, and in first year university. My boyfriend and I have always planned that I’d transfer to a closer university in my second year so we can live together. I want to move in with him but I’m worried about how my parents will react. They love him, but may think

this is too permanent for my age… I might be a little worried about that too, even though we have a great relationship. Currently, I get to see him because I go home on weekends, but it’s not really ideal. Part-Time Love A. Don’t blame your parents — thank them. You’re not certain of this move, but don’t want to hurt your guy. Still, you have the maturity to question whether moving in together next year at 20 is really right for you. Consider your education goals as well. If your current university is a good place for your interests, stay put. For now, weekend romance is a great balance to a life of new experiences, new people, and academic demands. Staying at your family home may not provide the privacy you want, but living together would be a muchbigger adjustment beyond having more time together. Stay with your own good instincts. Explain all this to him, stressing that it’s better to delay until sure,

than rush too soon.

Q. I’m 15, and have never had a boyfriend or been kissed. I feel so ugly sometimes, like no guys would ever like me. I’m totally obsessed with boys but don’t know what I would say if someone asked me out… I’d probably say No. I don’t think I’m even allowed to date. But do you think there is something wrong with me? Never Been Kissed A. Countless girls who once thought they were “ugly ducklings” later become attractive “swans” as they develop inner confidence over time. There’s nothing wrong with you. Your parents are protective, that’s good. Dating in early-teen years can be very upsetting, as many young people are fickle; they kiss and run. Your parents know you’re not ready to handle those swinging emotions. Work on friendships with other girls, and guy pals, too. Focus on school, getting good grades, and knowing you’re smart and have value to lots of people.

SWEDISH HOT SPICED WINE

Glug glug: Wine to keep you warm during the game

By James Romanow

A friend of mine found love overseas and ended up bringing home a Swede. She was homesick her first Christmas and made mulled wine for us, a popular Swedish beverage called Glögg. Delightfully, it’s pronounced ‘gloog’. (Gee, I wonder where they found that name?) Combine the ingredients in a sauce pan, warm it to just below boiling, then flame the alcohol off. This leaves you with a warm tasty drink, but not particularly alcoholic, allowing for drinking throughout the festivities. (When the kids are asleep then you pull the Akavit from the freezer for shots with beer.) Many adjust the alcohol levels by making the Glögg and adding a shot or two of brandy, rum or another liqueur after it has steeped. Spicing is typically cardamom, cloves and cinnamon. Ideally, it’s served in a mug with a cinnamon stir stick while hot. If you would say, be taking your Glögg to spend three hours sitting outside to watch some nameless football game, I’d suggest reheating to about 120 F and adding it to a thermos without the cinnamon. (Not that I would ever encourage anyone to drink in public. It’s against the law.) I’d go easy on the addition of liqueur or brandy. Somebody has to drive home and your kid will be too tired.

More wine in Monday’s paper or on Twitter @ drbooze. Glögg (Mulled Wine) INGREDIENTS: — 1 apple, chopped — 1 orange, unpeeled and quartered — ½ cup sugar — 3 cloves — 1 tsp. ground cinnamon and/or cardamom — 1 bottle red wine (I use Henry of Pelham Baco Noir. Avoid highly tannic reds like cabernet sauvignon; most Portuguese wines work beautifully too) METHOD: 1. In a non-reactive, 2L saucepan, add all the ingredients and warm, stirring constantly. 2. If you want some alcohol to remain keep the temperature well below boiling. If you prefer to reintroduce alcohol later, bring to a boil for 10 minutes, and then let steep on the counter overnight. 3. Strain and warm slowly, and decant into the thermos or mug of choice. A mug enjoys a wheel of orange and a cinnamon stir stick. Add vodka, brandy, calvados or liqueur to taste. 4. If you’ve left it overnight, rewarm, strain, and then add up to a cup of alcohol of choice or not.

Food fit for football

Delicious Grey Cup party food By Jenn Sharp Nachos, wings and mozza sticks — sounds like game day food, right? Kick it up a notch this year at your Grey Cup party. Impress your guests with these unique and easy-to-make appetizers. It’s not hard to put a healthy spin on the recipes, too (just don’t tell anyone — they’ll never know the difference). Pillsbury Pizza Crust is the fastest way to make the Pizza Bites, but if you want to make your own whole-wheat crust that works too. Pizza Bites can be stuffed with anything from veggies, to ham and pineapple. Chorizo sausage and mozzarella are the best tasting in my opinion. The Jalapeno Popper Dip tastes very similar to the deep fried bites many bars serve, but better. Sub in Greek yogurt and low-fat cream cheese to make it healthier.

3. If you like, add a thin layer of breadcrumbs to the top before baking. 4. Put dip in an oven-safe bowl and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. 5. For an extra element in the dip, spread thinly sliced, palm-size layers of Parmesan cheese on a wax-coated cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes or until cheese begins to brown and harden. 6. Garnish dip with a few jalapenos and parmesan crisps. Serve with crostinis or sliced baguettes for dipping.

Jalapeno Popper Dip

INGREDIENTS: — 1 cup sour cream (or Greek yogurt) — 1 cup cream cheese — 1 to 2 tbsp. finely chopped jalapenos (more if you like it hot) — 127 ml can chopped green chilis — 2 tbsp. grated mozzarella — breadcrumbs (optional) — Parmesan (or any other cheese you like) METHOD: 1. Preheat oven to 350 F. 2. Mix all of the above ingredients together (and don’t touch your eyes after you cut those jalapenos!)

INGREDIENTS: — 1 tube Pillsbury Pizza Crust — 500 grams chorizo sausage — 250 grams mozzarella cheese — 1 tbsp. olive oil — 1 to 2 tbsp. Italian seasoning, basil or parsley — 1 small jar marinara or pizza sauce METHOD: 1. Preheat oven to 350 F. 2. Cut small (thumbnail-sized) chunks of sausage and slightly smaller pieces of cheese. 3. Tear off a small piece of dough. Place a piece of sausage and cheese in middle of dough and close edges to form a round pocket. If the dough is too thin in spots, you need a larger piece. 4. Place the individual bites close together in an oven-safe dish. 5. Brush the top with olive oil; sprinkle with herbs. 6. Bake for about 20 minutes or just until the edges of the dough begin to brown. Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.

Your Grey Cup party will be a hit with these dishes. QC photo by Jenn Sharp; food styling by Laura Donovan
