Letter From the Editor

Looking back on the summer of 2013, it was surely one to remember. Being involved in the Westman Ultimate Frisbee League, Brandon Barbarians, and the Manitoba Mud Run was an experience I will never forget.

Our team the “Disc Monsters” of the Westman Ultimate Frisbee league had a great year.  With most of our players having two years or more experience really showed on the field.  We were 12-2 for the regular season and won first place by shutting down the Finger Flickin three year winning streak.

The Brandon Barbarians are continuing to play the regular season until the end of the September.  The season is coming to an end and it looks good for both the Division 1 and 2 teams to make the playoffs.  The Manitoba Rugby finals are being hosted by Brandon, so if you are interested or curious about rugby, come on down to the pitch (Reilly’s Field) on Saturday, October 3 and experience the excitement.

Dauphin’s first Manitoba Mud Run was a huge success. They were thrilled to report that the grand total of pledges raised for the MS Society of Manitoba was a whopping $42,521.34!
It was a 10k run with 20 obstacles which sounds grueling but wasn’t.  The support you received from other teams or individuals at each obstacle made it possible for anyone to complete.  I’m going to be there next year and I’m encouraging everyone to come out and get dirty.

We at Design Your Home would love to hear or see (pictures, videos) what you did this summer.  We will share it on our facebook, twitter and may post it in next summer’s issue of Design Your Home magazine.  We like to share events and activities available for the public.  Please send your emails to or post it on our facebook page.
