You mean Saskatchewanians?
Or Saskatchewanites?

Here in Regina the highest point of land is the city landfill!

And yes, we have downhill skiing here. It's just over really fast.

Yeah, we had a PILE Of snow-covered garbage they tried to make into a ski hill- Blackstrap...now closed. I guess we'd all rather go to Fernie!

OK well here's one more, so that makes 3....getting close to a plurality, if not a simple majority?

And talk to me about flatland....I hail from Illinois. We have to make our own topography out of steel and glass.

Yeah, we've got downhill skiing here in Manitoba. But if you're tall, the front end of your skis are at the bottom of the hill while the back end of your skis are still on the top.

Nope, Uno- she is not my friend, but Sask is a very funny place...I bet within three posts we would discover we know people in common...let's see. I am originally from Balcarres/Abernethy, and I now live in Martensville- now you go.
LOL yes, that is the way things work isn't it?!

I am originally from Bethune, went to high school in Lumsden. Now in Regina. My sis and her hubby and family live in Saskatoon, and I have quite a few relatives up there

Haha if there is one thing those of us from Saskatchewan love, it's to complain about the weather

My SO is in Mexico right now for a convention and I am so envious. He is actually attending meetings but also getting a little time to enjoy the beach and sun. I'd take it over being here right now

CJ- yup, I am sure the 6 degrees of separation thing would apply.

I love heading up PA way and tooling around on the Beemer. Those who don't know think all of SK is like the south here- flat and crops. I get up there 2-3 times a summer at least.

Isn't that against the law in Canada?

Is it okay to skip the game IF you're out fishing?

Radio is the only approved substitute. Law also applies to CFL games.
