|Fun and games before the main event.|
We had the privilege of attending one of their games at Mosaic stadium/Taylor Field in Regina and the spectacle was awesome.

The game itself was rather one sided, the Roughriders were mauled by the BC Lions to the tune of 37 points. In fact, I think the green clad cheerleaders were on the field longer than the Rider offensive team.
|And we are supposed to concentrate on the game!|
Despite the result the Riderville day was a true experience with fanatical fans, fireworks and beautiful warm sunshine. We walked away from the stadium amid a green wave of disappointed but passionate fans, wondering what it would have been like had the Roughriders won.

of the Rider Nation.
Here's hoping Saskatchewan make the playoffs and eventually win the Grey Cup as I am sure the province will be partying long after we have gone.

The weekend was not only memorable for the football but also for the glorious autumn (fall) scenery and weather. We had a quick look round Regina, espeically the picturesque Wascana park and stopped off in Saskatoon on the way home. Both cities make the most of their striking rivers and lakes with the autumn colours accentuating their beauty.
This is a glorious time of the year and a fitting encore to summer before the white season.
