Today the Day League (2nd Half) final was held with Team Long playing Team Luddington. Although Team Long jumped out to a 4-0 lead after 4 ends, Team Luddington got all that back in the 5th end with 4. By the time we got to the 7th end it was all tied up at 6 with Team Long having the hammer coming home. On his final shot Paul Long needed a rock on the four foot to win the game and he did. Great game had by all. Congrats goes out to Team Long: skip Paul Long, mate Don Armstrong, second Marg Halloran, and lead Sharmaine Shea. This was Paul’s rookie season in the Day league. He plans on curling both Day and Night year.
Our end of season session for Juniors was held this past Wednesday on Mar. 30th. We organized four teams of juniors with one adult per team and played a 3 end game. Then we did our weekly draw to the button with Ryan Casey winning on the boy’s side and Vanessa Dort on the girl’s side. Congrats to both. We also did our bi-weekly pizza draw from 50/50 sales by the kids. Winners this week was Ryan Sangster and I believe Vanessa Dort. Sceles Realty donated money for us to buy pizza’s for the kids and parents who came to watch plus they will be buying the kids their suppers next week at the closing banquet. Martin Marietta again donated toques and flashlights for the kids while MODG donated water bottles. Thanks to all who donated. And big thanks goes out to Ray who organizes our sessions each week, Donalda who teaches the kids, and Jim & Phil who helped out Ray each week. Here are some pics of the kids.
Here is the schedule and team list for this weekend’s Memorial Bonspiel.
Our weekly featured sponsors Mar. 28-Apr. 1 are Ron McGillivray Chev Olds, MODG, and Sceles Realty.
We now have enough players for 8 teams. I do not anticipate anymore calling. In fact I had messages into three others but we cannot go with 9 teams and we would be very hard pressed to get 10. So 8 it is. The draft of curlers is happening tonight at 6pm at the rink by all the skips: Brian MacDonald (Phil will pick), Neil DeCoff, George Luddington, Kenny O’Leary, Don Armstrong, Shauna Brymer, Evelyne Jamieson, and Paul Long. They will then call you with your draw times. Games will start on Friday at 6pm with the 2nd draw at 8:15pm. Both are 8 end games. Saturday’s draws are 9am, 11:15am, Ice Maintenance, 1:30pm and 3:30pm. All games on Saturday are 6 end games. Lunch will be hamburger soup and roll for $3.00 from 11am until 2pm. Turkey dinner will be served from 5:30 on. We hope to have some sort of entertainment on Friday night after the 1st draw. Anyone with guitars etc… who want to play please feel free.
