Wednesday’s Juniors hot shoots, camera technology, and pizza certificates….

At the conclusion of last Wednesday’s session there was the usual “hot shoot” draws to the button for chocolate bars as rewards for the closest girl’s and boy’s rock to the pin.  The winners of the bars were Hanna Manthorne (4″) and Cody Carter (41″). Congratulations to Hanna and Cody. On Wednesday Donalda was back from coaching her Nunavut team in the Canadian Juniors Championship (won by Nova Scotia girl’s team from Chester). Phil O’Regan and Jim Muise were again pitching in to assist us to give the youngsters a good session. Thank you Phil and Jim.

Thank you also to the MODG Recreation Department for purchasing the Juniors’ snacks.

Next Wednesday Donalda plans to go technological with her instructions and use a camera to record each Junior as they slide our of the hack so as to let them see how their postures appears and to assist with instructions for sliding corrections where necessary.

As usual — parents are invited to attend to see the youngsters have their instructions.

Also on Wednesday, February 3, we had our awarding of pizzas to two of our Junior curlers for their successes with the selling of the rink’s 50/50 tickets.

The pizzas are being donated to Chedabucto’s Junior Curling League by AA Munro Insurance, Antigonish.  AA Munro Insurance’s much appreciated generosity and assistance is definitely serving as an incentive to encourage the Juniors to sell 50/50 tickets. The Juniors who received a Big G’ large pizza for selling the tickets (as awarded by books/tickets sold and selected by random draws) were Jenna Dort and Ryan Casey. My thanks goes to the Juniors, their parents, families and friends who assisted with the selling of the 50/50 tickets — and also to AA Munro Insurance for making our awarding of pizzas possible.

Because we missed a session due to a snow storm we will get back on our pizza-draws schedule by making the next selections on Wednesday, February 10. Parents are requested to ensure that the youngsters submit all sold tickets at next Wednesday’s session because our next 50/50 draw will be held on Saturday, February 13. My sincere thanks and best regards to all.
