Tisdale: Tuesday night there was a good crowd on hand to cheer on the Trojans against the Saskatoon Contacts. It was also time to recognise the achievements this past month of Mitch Neumeier who was pick player of the month and top scorer at the Mac Tournament in Calgary during the Christmas break.

Tisdale: You may think you are doing okay, understanding the essential things that you see about you each and every day but you and pretty much everyone else is living in an illusionary world. Seeing and hearing what you think not what is.
