Ontario Provincial Blind Championship
Ontario Blind Curling Championships
The provincial blind curling championships were held in London from March 23 – 25. Hamilton Blind curlers had two teams entered, one on the competitive side and one on the recreational side. Although neither team was successful in repeating their success from last year, both groups performed well. Our competitive team lost their final game to Toronto 1 by a score of 6 – 5 or they would have repeated as provincial representatives. Our recreational team finished 1 – 2. We would like to congratulate Eric Bourgeois who participated in his first provincial championship and thank Geoff Hodgson for stepping in to spare at second. Plans are already in place for next year’s provincial championship to be held in Ottawa from March 22 – 24. Finally, a big thank you to our coaches and guides – Darlene Woods, Laurie Gunderman, Phil Howarth, Mary and Bill Malcolmson and our principal cheerleader, Bonnie Saxon, for all their work including chauffeuring us all weekend.
Our competitive team consisted of: lead - Murdie Campbell, seconds/sweepers - Amelie Beauchamp- Grandmaitre and Geoff Hodgson (who stepped in at the last minute to spare), vice- Steve Reavley, skip - Bill Watson, coach - Mary Malcolmson, guide - Bill Malcolmson.
Our recreational team consisted of: lead - Eric Bourgeois, lead/second - Gary Saxon, second/skip - Sharon Ladd, Vice - Joy Mayor, skip - Bill Harrison, and coach/guide - Darlene Woods.
