2016-17 Curling Season:
Welcome to the
new curling season!
Our volunteers have been working diligently
to get the ice ready for curling on Monday. Special thanks
to ice man Jim and his prime helpers Bob Gilman, Paul
Trussler and Phil Lewkoski and the team of painters that
came back to repaint the circles.
Although aesthetically, the ice will not
look as pristine as we have been accustomed, it will not
affect the playing surface.
The circles and rock boxes have been repainted but the
white could not be be touched up because of the type of
paint that is being used. The alternative was to take
out the ice and start over. While this might have been
cleaner and resulted in better looking ice, with the
continued hot weather, we would have to postpone the
season another week. We will monitor he situation and
should the need arise, we will re-do te ice when there
are colder temperatures during the Christmas break so
that here is no effect on members.
Leagues will start
next Monday for evening curling with all regular leagues
to follow. (There will be no junior curling Monday

One of our Parry Sound curlers -
Terri Weeks is doing very well in University curling. See
the news report below about the Brock Badgers and Terri!
The Brock University men's and women's
curling teams competed at the 2016 OUA Curling Championships
hosted by the Guelph Curling Club.
The Brock women's lineup, consisting of
Shelby Bailey, posted
an overall record of 7-2 to take home the OUA silver medal. The
women placed first in Pool play with a 6-1 record with wins over
Ryerson (6-2), Lakehead (8-5),
Algoma (13-3), Waterloo (7-6), Laurentian (8-2), Queen's (5-4).
Their lone pool play loss came against the Guelph Gryphons, 5-2.
In the semi-finals, the Badgers rebounded and knocked off the
Gryphons 7-1, to make it a Brock vs Laurier Gold Medal Final for
the second straight year. In the final, Brock led 4-3 after six
ends, but it was the top ranked Golden
Hawks closing out the match with three points for the 6-4

Teams that played in the Club Championship:
It was a very good year for the
women's teams in the Club Championship. Laurie Robinson's team defeated
Julie Truscott's team in the Main Event final to become the 2015 Club
Champions. Congratulations to both women's teams!
the consolation final it was April McNamara (Gill's Wed. night team) who
defeated Ron Marshall in a very close game. April's last run-back
take-out was the game winner. What a fantastic shot!
Both the second and third events were tied after 8 ends - and in a
shoot-out for each, both skips put rocks on the button or very close to
it. How exciting to watch!
Winner of the second event was Cody MacDonald's Thursday night team
defeating Bob Gilman (Scott Somerset's Thursday night team).
The third event was won by Jason Cutler (Al Bourgois' Tuesday night
team) over Bruce Shadd's Monday night team.
Congratulations to all of the competitors and the winners and
runners-up in each event. Well done all!
