As we move into March & April our Zone sports will be slowing down. However, there are three events in May & June – Horseshoes in Brechin May 25th, Washer Toss hosted by Omemee on June 8th and golf hosted by Lindsay on June 22nd. Once again, check the sports board for sign-up sheets and check dates for District and Provincial events to be sure you can move on.
