As many of you know, Ernie Stavert and his wife Ruth are active, long-time members of the Cornwall Curling Club. In fact, Ernie was on the original planning committee for the Club way back in 1980, was on the Charter Board of Directors, which first met in 1981, and took over as President for the 1982-83 season.
Ernie is active with the Daytime Curlers, and was one of the initial supporters of Stick Curling on PEI, becoming the longtime president of Stick Curling PEI. This sport evolved to eventually have its own Maritime and Canadian Championships, with Cornwall hosting the national event in 2013. The event introduced a Women’s championship that year, with Ruth Stavert and Gloria Clarke winning it, and a Cornwall team (Roddie MacLean and Paul Field) winning the men’s event too! Both Staverts are frequently in the winner’s circle of both the provincial and maritime stick championships.
Club members are urged to come out and support this roast!
