Labor Day weekend

For most, Labor Day weekend is the last weekend of summer. It's a time to relax, spend the last weekend by the pool or lake and spend time with one's family.

For a sports journalist, it's just another weekend at the office. Saturday I worked all afternoon and into the evening. I began setting up the layout of the Courant, covered Bottineau football and finished up with taking pictures at the high school rodeo competition.

Sunday I came in after church to work for a few hours in the afternoon. Monday I wrote stories and did layout all afternoon and most of the evening.

Although I did get a few more hours off than normal (and suprisingly all the evenings) I still put in plenty hours of work while the majority of the rest of the country got to sip their favorite beverage and lay in the sun.

Here are some pictures from this weekend that I didn't publish in the paper:
Bottineau sophomore Trevor Wettlaufer catches a pass in warm-ups Saturday.
Wettlaufer carries the ball up field against Belcourt in Belcourt Saturday.
Bottineau junior quarterback Justin McCloud scrambles away from trouble Saturday.
