On Friday’s Morning News, Jessica learns about the Moose on the Loose campaign; Kevin finds out why young footballs players from across the country are in Saskatoon; and Melissa grabs a tennis racket as the Saskatoon Futures competition is set to take place.

Moose on the Loose campaign

I think any type of prevention for hitting wildlife on vehicles is essential.

I hit a moose about two years ago, and not everyone is so lucky to walk away from the crash to talk about it.

I have seen the Moose on the Loose campaigns on highways before, and to me they serve as a great reminder to always keep your eyes peeled on the road and in the ditches for wildlife.

They can come out of nowhere.

Canada Cup football championship

This is such a cool event!

It’s definitely worth the trip to Griffin stadium to watch some of the best up-and-comers going for the big ticket.

As it’s a scouted event, some will even make that cut!

If you’re a parent interested in getting your kid out for some football, this is the event to check out.

Saskatoon Futures tennis competition

There is a lot of attention surrounding tennis right now as Canadian Eugenie Bouchard has become the first Canadian singles player to compete for the title at Wimbledon.

While there’s a lot happening at Wimbledon right now there is also lots happening in Saskatoon. The Saskatoon Futures competition kicks off this weekend and will feature athletes from across the globe.

This morning I had a chance to speak with some promising tennis player and spoke about what it takes to compete in the sport.

It was one of those mornings I wished the show went on forever as I had a great time playing tennis. I think I found myself a new hobby!
