About Me :
Darryl lives in Cupar, SK, a town of less than 600 people located 75 kilometres northeast of Regina. It is most famous for the Cupar Gopher Drop, a unique lottery held every summer. Stuffed toy gophers (Richardson's Ground Squirrels) labelled with numbers are dropped from a hot-air balloon along with numbered gopher holes. The "owner" of the gopher that lands nearest Hole 1 wins first prize, and so on.
