Volume XIX Issue II The Ogden Valley news Page 5 April 15, 2011 2011 Ogden Valley Basketball Tournament Dates Announced Mark your calendars! It’s time for the annual Valley Tournament, which has been scheduled for April 26 through April 28 with games being continued the following week of May 3 through May 5—all at Snowcrest Jr. High. Games will begin at 6:00 and 7:00 p.m. starting on a Tuesday. This basketball tournament has been an annual event in Ogden Valley for over 50 years. Team participation is open to any current or former Ogden Valley resident. Every year the tournament has some great teams participating, and offers a terrific opportunity for local “hoopsters” and their fans to enjoy some competitive and intense basketball. Co-Tournament Directors Vern Iverson & Kathy Allen are expecting some talented players to participate again this year. In past years, there have been some awesome players from the high school and college levels, along with those who’ve become famous for playing good old-fashioned “church ball.” Team rosters and fees are due April 15, and can be dropped off at the Iverson Dental office. All games will have certified officials, and all proceeds benefit Ogden Valley Recreation for the community tennis courts being built at Snowcrest Jr. High. For this purpose only, the fees have been raised per player by $5.00, or $220 per team. Remember it is for a good cause. If you are interested in volunteering, or for more information, contact Vern Iverson at 745-0641 or Kathy Allen at 745-2709. We do need scorekeepers to run the clock and the score sheets. But wait . . . it gets even better! There is no entrance fee to attend and view the games this year! It’s all FREE, and we’re working on having some super half-time entertainment for the championship game. If you have an entertaining program and would like a chance to perform, please call Kathy at 801-391-9880. We will certainly accept any donations for the Tennis Court Project at Snowcrest Jr. High. If we have enough participation of Jr. High teams, we will offer that division as well. We had that division awhile ago and would like to bring it back. We may offer other activities of competition as well—also for a fee—such as 3-man teams. Maybe a spoon race with a ping pong ball? Who knows? Any suggestions? Please plan on attending an evening or two enjoying one of the community events of the year—the Annual Ogden Valley Tournament! Willson Greenhouse Prepares for Opening on May 3 Willson Greenhouse is up and running, preparing for its official opening on May 3. This is the business’ fifth year in operation. Owner Jami Willson states, “We are excited about this. Thank you for your support; we have enjoyed serving you. “We now have a large variety of plants, including vegetable plants, and many beautiful hanging baskets. This year we are inviting Natural Rock Designs to add to our offerings. They have a large selection of designer materials for yards and patios, and rocks for flag poles, fire pit boulders, and headstones.” As stated, the business will open May 3 for the 2011 season. Operating hours will be Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Jami adds, “We will carry garden mix and soil prep items—professional garden mix, turkey mulch, and garden A-Z garden vitamins. Our Garden Prep can be used when the snow is gone. Apply preemergent on flower areas and garden beds early to stop weeds from germinating.” Jami’s Garden Tips It’s important to start with good soil. Work your soil with organic matter, such as manure, poultry mix, etc. Plants need good soil. It also makes weeding easier. Be sure to plant items that are proven to grow in our area. Check where vegetables and flowers come from, since some come from out of state where the climate is warmer than ours. As soon as the snow is gone from your grass, put pre-emergent on to stop the germi- nation of unwelcome weeds. Be careful with the Preen around your flowers though, it stunts their growth. The best thing that I have found—spray flower beds early with weed killer, near the end of April or the beginning of May. Then, let it sit for a couple of weeks. Some Like it Hot, and Other Tips A few more tips: • For small gardens, look for smaller areas that can take advantage of the full sun. • Grow rows close together. • Start thinking about hot spots around the yard where tomato plants tend to thrive. • Start thinking about a drip system in your garden areas. • Plant a new pot this year. • Plant herbs and dry them for winter use. • In Ogden Valley, start planting at the very end of May or after June 1; however, you will still need to watch for late frosts. We’ve had heavy snow in the middle of June before. Willson Greenhouse is located at 5626 N. North Fork Road in Liberty. Watch for it on the right side of the road on your way to North Fork Park.
