I won’t lie. Some families throw a pretty good party. I’m sure my family could too, but there just aren’t enough of us to make it really happen. Perhaps the best way to frame it is, we lack the commitment to do the event up right. Maybe we just aren’t big party people! That’s okay.
The Evans’ family is small. The Elliott family is wide spread and as members age or die, the cousins are less likely to go and search out their relatives. So, I consider myself lucky to have friends that include me as their “family” and I enjoy the benefits of these connections. Those benefits include: travelling to rural Saskatchewan and seeing the blues and greens of the prairies smashed together in July.
Other benefits include enjoying the company of strangers and friends while participating in games of chance or skill! I haven’t touched a golf club in seven years. And I’m sure my companions could see that. But when you’re with the reunion crowd, that doesn’t matter. Everyone enjoyed the wind blown course, that even the pros would have fun with!!! Dustin, Jordan, Tiger come and smash a few balls out in the country!!
When it comes to games of skill, you have to figure this dart game out. I’ve never seen it but playing it was a riot! You will be surprised that no one gets hurt by throwing darts at each other. The hardest part is putting the board together. Great counting game for kids and adults.
What a great time to catch up, meet some new people or renew connections with others. Things you may not know about Saskatchewan. Our people LOVE to entertain, help you out and they are always willing to share whatever bounty is laid out.
Generous, funny, caring people that go about their business daily, making time for family reunions.
(Thanks Tara, it will always be fun to celebrate any holiday or gathering with you, Kadence, Ryker and the rest of the Becker family.)
