Curling is full steam ahead at Whitlock Golf and Country Club. All draws have commenced and the volunteer committees need to be congratulated on a job well done.
The Ladies Curling Association held their first competition of the year October 31 at the Pointe Claire Curling Club. The St. George is a competition for those players who are not rated as Skip; Whitlock entered with the Team of Ingrid Thunem - Skip, Sylvia Mauri - Third, Suzanne Sonnel - Second and Brigitte Blais - Lead. Team Thunem, who won both morning and afternoon games, was victorious and received a lovely pin.
In the spring at the Awards Luncheon, the team will be presented with the lovely silver tea service. Congratulations ladies!
Our All-Star competition is well underway and Whitlock has four teams competing this year. This league will wrap up at the end of November.
The Centennial-Mary McGuire was played at the Town of Mont Royal Curling Club November 7. This competition is for players over the age of 55. Whitlock's teams were as follows: Team #1- Barbara Olejnik - Skip, Diane Gignac - Third, Mary Whittall - Second, and Maria Geiring - Lead.
Team #2 - Marilyn Cummings - Skip, Lynne Dumaine - Third, Nancy Lucas - Second, and Louise Aiken -Lead. Team #3 - Maxine Perra - Skip, Inga Lawson - Third, Sylvia Patrick - Second, and Pat Patterson - Lead.
Team Cummings and Team Perra made it to the District Finals, Marilyn in the Centennial and Maxine in the Mary McGuire. The Championship final saw Marilyn Cummings and her tour de force become runners-up in the Centennial after a very exciting game.
Team Perra came away with the Mary McGuire event. Whitlock is getting ready to host the annual Tobin Earle competition which is for players with five years or less curling experience. This brings out the best in all and the games are very exciting.
We encourage all to come and cheer on both Whitlock teams Tuesday, December 6. There’s lots more curling before the holiday break.
Until next time, good curling.
