Snow, hockey and the end of football

As one sport ended another began this past week in Bottineau.

I started out tuesday enjoying the glorious snowfall and coaching the white team in the annual Green/White, Media Cup game. We lost 5-4 in overtime, but I had a good time.

Wednesday I went on the radio to talk about the game for a couple minutes. I had a pretty tough time getting there due to the approx. six inches of snow on the ground. In all we ended up getting about eight inches.

Thursday I travelled to Rugby to take pictures of the opening round of the District 11 volleyball tournament. It wrapped up Monday as the Bottineau Stars took home the title and the Newburg-Westhope Eagles failed to advance to regions.

Friday was the DCB hockey opener against the NDSU Bison at the Lumberdome, so I photographed that. They won 8-5.

Saturday was what turned out to be the Westhope-Newburg-Glenburn Sioux's final game, as they fell to Mott-Regent 20-8 to end their season in the quarterfinals.

Saturday night I went out for Halloween, dressed as a modern vampire. I had a lot of fun (maybe a little too much?).

Monday was a really long day, with all the hullabaloo that went down with the city council meeting. Didn't get out of the office until after 11:30 p.m.

I suprisingly went 10-3 on my NFL picks this week, maybe things are turning around?

Anyways I have a drastically large amount of pictures to share. Hope you Enjoy.
