The Section 5 legion baseball tournament took up a the majority of my road time. I had to drive the nearly 40 miles to Rolette on three separate occasions.
I also drove to the International Peace Garden's for a flag ceremony.
Lastly I hit up the Lake Metigoshe are for the annual Metigoshe Ministries quilt auction.
This week I have Class B state legion baseball to cover, which will be here in town.
Here are my pics for this week:
