We've been seeing some activity on fields in Southern Manitoba as combines start to take off some winter wheat.  That pace will accelerate quickly and that's also the case with the Canadian Food Grains Bank.  The first field of 2014 special growing projects was combined at Ste Elizabeth near Arnaud. The event was captured on video

5th Annual Manitoba Fibreglass and Vintage Camper Rally

2014 08 boler

We made reference to this past weekend being a "wheels" extrvaganza. A VW rally at Killarney Lake called, Dubs on the Lake attracted some 60 entries, while another car show was held at Plum Coulee's Plum Fest. But what really drew a crowd was the fifth annual Manitoba Fibreglass and Vintage Camper Rally in the campground at St. Malo Provincial Park. On display were all makes of lightweight, fibreglass trailers with the most attention created by Bolers created here in Manitoba in 1968. A brilliant red Boler restored by Jack Klick of Kleefeld, generated a lot of buzz. Restored by Jack and daughter Kelly, the Boler arrived behind a minty 53 Mercury pickup. Jack told Al Friesen how the restored 39 year old trailer came to be - listen in to the story in the AM1250 Audio Vault.
