Saskatoon city golf courses have seen their 2014 season begin with day after day of rain and late spring snowfall.
While that hasn't kept Wildwood, Silverwood, and Holiday Park from opening up when the weather improves, many golfers have opted to stay home.
"Snow is never good for our industry, especially at the back-end of April here," Kevin Marushak, head professional at Silverwood Golf Course, said.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders continue to tinker with their roster with training camp nearing.
The team announced on Tuesday they've signed non-import defensive lineman Ryan Wellman and import defensive back Antonio Fenelus.
After one look at the weather forecast that brought wet snow, Regina Minor Softball pushed the start of its season back one week.
Armand Jeannot is the Vice President of the club. He said that the weather will cooperate for their first-planned game of the season on May 3. Luckily, the weather so far has allowed for some preparations to be made including installing the sprinklers in the field and adding a level amount of shale to the infield diamond.
"Now it's a matter of just cleaning up garbage and dragging infields a little bit," he said.
CEO Zane Hansen confirmed that the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA) will extend its sponsorship of the Dakota Dunes Open for three more years. Hansen made the announcement at a news conference in Saskatoon on Monday.
“We’re thrilled about our continued relationship with SIGA as the Title Partner of the SIGA Dakota Dunes Open presented by SaskTel,” said PGA Tour Canada President Jeff Monday. “We are also extremely pleased to have SaskTel’s continued support as the Presenting Partner and communications provider of the tournament," he said.
Prince Albert Mintos forward Dakota Boutin scored the first goal of the 2014 Telus Cup national midget AAA championship on Monday.
After Sunday’s game, Boutin can also say he scored the last.
The 16-year-old winger for Moosomin was the triple overtime hero Sunday as the Mintos beat les Grenadiers de Châteauguay 4-3 in the longest game ever in Telus Cup history—108 minutes and 36 seconds long.
Spring has teed off for some Regina golfers as the city's golf courses finally begin to open for the season.
The Royal Regina Golf Club opened up its full 18-hole course on Friday with many golfers taking full advantage, chomping at the bit to get out there and take their first swing.
“We’ve been counting the days,” said Doug Rogers.
He joked he was playing hooky to come out and hit some balls on a warm Friday afternoon, adding that he’s usually at the course three times a week. He’s quick to make fun of his skill as a golfer.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders have added another quarterback ot their stable.
The team announced on Friday that they've signed import quarterback Adam Weber. The pivot joins the green and white after three years on NFL practice rosters. In 2011, Weber was with the Denver Broncos followed by two seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
A week after the championship quarterback re-signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, there are reports out as to how much Darian Durant is being paid.
A Winnipeg Sun reporter has said Durant's new contract is worth $190,000. However, the article also reported that Durant got a signing bonus of $225,000.
If the report is correct, the Rider's quarterback's salary is far less than the top CFL salary of the B.C. Lion's Travis Lulay, reported at $450,000.
Less than 12 months after the Brodsky family sold the Saskatoon Blades to Edmonton’s Mike Priestner, the Regina Pats' Russ Parker could be the next owner passing the torch.

A little more is known about the group hoping to the buy the Regina Pats.
On Wednesday current team owner Russ Parker announced that he plans on selling the WHL team to Queen City Sports and Entertainment, headed up by Anthony Marquart. We also learned that day that former Pats goalie and current owner of Speers Funeral Chapel Todd Lumbard is also a part of the group.
