The athletic competition at the provincial Highland Gathering is like an Ironman, except in kilts.
Whether participating as a hobbyist or treating the Western Canadian Heavy Events as a stepping stone to nationals, the province's most athletic Scotsmen gathered in Regina on Sunday.
Events like the caber toss, hammer throw, and 28-lb stone throwing often elicit and hearty grunt as athletes show their grit.
Competitor Marc Morin considers the events to be much like track and field.
There's a big difference between cats, dogs and all the other animals people find outdoors around Regina.
The glaring contrast is that domestic animals belong indoors, while all other wild animals belong in their natural habitat with their parents, explained Don Simons with the Regina Humane Society.
It may seem unnatural to some people when they wild baby animals on their own, and even pique their concern to the point that they want to take the animal home.
After being the subject of a Canada-wide warrant, a Regina man was handed 23 months in a provincial jail.
Jordan Allan Bundus, a 25-year-old man was picked up along with two others in Northwest Regina back in September.
In 2011, he was found after him and another man went into hiding in Kelowna, BC. Faced with a nation-wide search warrant, the men were brought back to Saskatchewan to face charges.
But with the dry weather we've had lately, there is added danger in lighting those backyard fires.
Regina's RCMP training academy got an unexpected visitor shortly after dinnertime Friday when a small plane landed on their driving course.
The pilot said there was a mechanical issue and that he had to land in the area where RCMP officers train to drive police cars.
The fire department was called in around 6:30 p.m., but no one was hurt.

It might be a little harder to get your fishing license at a store this long weekend.
Some businesses have decided not to sell them anymore since the system has gone online. Pokey's Tackle Shop made that decision after estimating it would take $1600 for them to purchase the equipment to do it. Owner Greg Prokopetz says he only makes $1 on each license sold at $30 each.
"Other government agencies that sell licenses get all that equipment supplied to them," he said.
"Plus they get double what we do to sell it."
A big boost in the number of child care spaces in Saskatchewan but it won't be enough to meet the ever-increasing demand.
On Friday the province released the breakdown in new spaces, the result of spending in this year's budget. In all 537 new spaces will be created, spread throughout the province. Lumsden will see the highest number with the addition of a new 51-space at the local elementary school. Saskatoon will see 50 new spaces at Caroline Robins School. Regina's Kids First Day Care Centre will see one of its locations expanded to add 33 new spaces.
You should probably leave your weapons at home when heading off to the mall.
That's the lesson a pair of men learned Friday afternoon at the Cornwall Centre.
Regina police say they were called about a man with a gun tucked in to the back of his pants at the food court.
When they got there, they found a 27-year old and a 32-year old with a pellet gun.
No charges have been laid.
William Francis Noname is the most recent person arrested after a home invasion in Regina a year ago.
The 31-year-old of Regina is charged with attempted murder, threatening and break and enter.
Police say back on May 15 of last year, two men and a woman broke into a house on Bauermeister Street and assaulted a couple living there.
They were taken to hospital. The male victim is said to have had gunshot wounds.
Back in October, 31-year old Tara Lee Bird was arrested and is facing three charges, including attempted murder.
Police are warning the public about a dangerous offender in Regina once again; because he's changed his appearance.
