Karin walked and had a sack lunch Welcome back to the Laiken and Taylor Column. The boy's and girl's golf teams finally got to "tee off" after a long wait for Spring weather. On Thursday May 9th the boys traveled to Larimore to first compete on the very nice, but very challenging, golf course. Leading the team was junior Grant Schumacher with a 99, followed by sophomore Tim Blawat with a 127, and seventh graders Gaven Prigge and Thomas Blawat with scores of 133 and 142 respectively. On the same date the girls attended their first golf meet at Cavalier. The team played 9 holes and seniors Baylie Karboviak shot a 63 and Ashlynn Betz finished with a 69. At their very first golf meet three seventh graders had their Dahl shot a 87, followed closely by Taylor Stegman's 88, and Laiken Larson's 89. On Monday May 13th the boys played at Cavalier and again were led by Grant Schumacher's 86. Grant missed qualifying for the State Golf Tourney by 7 strokes and has two more chances with the Regional and the Park River Qualifier coming up soon. Thomas Blawat and Gaven Prigge shot 148 and 145 respectively. On the same day the girls went to Park River and both Baylie Karboviak and Ashlynn Betz shot 68 for the 9 holes. Laiken Larson improved 13 strokes from her first meet carding a 76, and Karin Dahl improved 7 strokes from her first meet with a score of 80. Last Wednesday some lucky elementary students got to tour our local Blessing Museum. The students picnic. Also, some of the elementary classes even got to go on a field trip to Icelandic State Park near Cavalier this past week- although Jr. High and High School have been more focused on studying for final exams and last assignments to finish up the year. Final tests were Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Friday is the last day of school, so the kids are all excited for summer! The Drayton public pool will be opening soon for the summer for all ages (although small children will need adult supervision).

C. Gardner, Jr. 1895 An announcement on January 11 said that the government fleet of steamers, dredges, and barges on the Red River would be demolished, broken up, and reduced by half, down to one complete dredging outfit, steamer, dredge, mud screws, etc. February 26--Another load of Washington lumber arrived in Grand Forks for the new steamer and barges. By March 6 the hulls of the new Red River Transportation Co. steamer and barges were nearing completion at Grand Forks. By March 26 the new Red River steamboat was nearly ready for launching at Grand Forks. The wheel would be seventeen feet in diameter, and there would be an upper cabin extending for nearly the entire length from the pilot house to the wheel. It would accommodate four hundred people. Two large scows were also almost ready. April 4--An announcement said that the City of Grand Forks had been remodeled and had a larger wheel. J.H. Bird had chartered the vessel and would make excursions a specialty. April 5--The little excursion steamer Mermaid was being fitted up for the season at Grand Forks. April 9- -The new steamer Grand Forks was launched a little past two p.m. at Grand Forks. It was 124 feet in length. The stern wheel was eighteen feet in diameter. It had a "light draft" of twenty-two inches. The captain was Bruce Griggs, the pilot was A. Perro, and A.J. Hutchins was the chief engineer. An announcement said "She is the largest steamer ever upon these waters..." That was an exaggeration: the Northwest was 200 feet long, the Manitoba was 165 feet in length, and the Minnesota was 128 feet long. April 10-- The demolition of the Alsop was almost complete at Grand Forks. April 13--Steam was up on the Grand Forks for the first time. April 16--The Grand Forks was inspected and passed. April 17--Captain Perro arrived from Stillwater, MN, and the Grand Forks made its maiden voyage. The excursion steamer City of Grand Forks was being readied; it would also haul a little freight. April 23--The Grand Forks returned from its maiden voyage back to Grand Forks from downriver with 8000 bushels of wheat in two barges from the Big Woods Landing. April 24--The City of Grand Forks made its first trip under Captain James Bird; it steamed to the Turtle River and brought back two barges. The Grand Forks came in that night with wheat from downriver. May 8--The City of Grand Forks made a trip downriver for wheat and returned May 9. May 14--The Grand Forks returned to Grand Forks from downstream. :iS:iii:iiiiiii:!ii:i: : !! Class of 2013 Continued From Page 1 grandmother Vivian Maurstad Emanuelson was a 1954 graduate.
