Updated: CanAm Cup USA Men’s Curling Tour to Canada stops here Nov. 16. Come on out and cheer on our teams!

The inaugural CanAm Cup of Curling kicks off this month, and PEI, including the Cornwall Curling Club, will be part of it. In 2017 at the World Men’s Curling Championships in Las Vegas, Peter Inch of Curling Canada and Rich Lepping, chair of the US Curling Association, met for the first time, and charted a path leading to the first Canam Cup of Curling tour, designed to foster fellowship and tradition between American and Canadian curlers. The tour will alternate between the two countries every five years, with Canada acting as the first host.

This month the United States team—led by Captain Steve McKee— will take to the four Atlantic Provinces and, for almost three weeks, play for the Lepping-Inch Trophy. Also known as the Chairman’s Cup, the trophy was donated by the chairmen of the respective curling associations. The trophy is an antique George V English sterling silver presentation bowl dating from 1919. Valued at $10,000 US, it will travel between the two countries and be engraved with the winning team’s name and country.

USA Men’s Curling Tour rolls into Cornwall on Nov. 16 – looking for 4 competitive teams to play them

The USA Men’s Tour is coming to the Cornwall Curling Club!

This is similar to the USA Women’s Tour that was here last year, and previous visits we have had from curlers from Scotland.

Curlers from various regions on the United States will travel to Canada to curl against their northern neighbours.

The tour will take place from Friday November 8, 2019 to Sunday November 24, 2019. The Eastern tour will start in Halifax, travel on to Newfoundland, back to Nova Scotia, then on to P.E.I, then to New Brunswick, and will finish back in Halifax.

There will be twenty curlers from the United States in the Eastern Tour, with four teams playing each draw and one having a bye, so each club will be expected to ice four teams for their particular draw.  Normally the US teams are welcomed into a club by some means such as an “arch of brooms”, and there will be an exchange of pins prior to the game, and lunch after.

Similar to the Canada/Scotland Strathcona Cup that some of our members have participated in, this event is based on total points scored by Canada and the U.S., so each game will be played to full completion of eight ends, regardless of the point spread.

Their stop here at the Cornwall Curling Club is Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 9 am, followed by lunch and social time

They are looking for four competitive men’s teams to play against them.

The signup sheet is now up at the Club. If more than 4 teams sign up, a draw will be made to choose the teams that will be competing.  It will cost each competing Cornwall team a total of  $40, which includes one eight-end game, lunch, and the opportunity to meet some fine American curlers!

Water bottle initiative to reduce single-use plastics a success!

We are pleased to report that, thanks to our environmentally-conscious members, our initiative to reduce the use of single-use plastic cups in the ice house has been a great success so far, with far more reusable plastic or metal water bottles and far fewer single-use plastic cups on the shelf by the curling sheets during games. It will, however, take a few weeks for curlers to get in the habit of taking their bottles with them when they go. We are collecting the leftover bottles after draws and putting them in the kitchen area in the first cupboard to the left, if you are looking for yours. It might be a good idea to mark them on the bottom with a label or a Sharpie, (or put nice vinyl letters on the side like in the picture) for faster identification!

Former Cornwall member Lauren Lenentine and Team Zacharias win OVCA Jr. Superspiel in Ottawa area

The MacKenzie Zacharias rink from Winnipeg, which includes former Cornwall Curling Club member Lauren Lenentine, has won the junior women’s section of the 16-team Brokerlink OVCA Junior Superspiel in the Ottawa area.

 

Team Zacharias. Lauren Lenentine is on the right

Team Zacharias lost their opener but picked up four straight wins going before losing 8-7 in an extra end to the Selina Witschonke squad from Switzerland in a Saturday night “B” qualifier. Zacharias then beat Ottawa’s Lindsay Thorne 8-7 in a 10 am Atlantic Sunday “C” qualifier for the semi-final round. Zacharias beat Team Gabrielle Lavoie of Quebec City 9-6 in the semis, and starting filling the scoreboard early in a 9-0 championship game in only four ends against the Kira Brunton squad from Sudbury. 

Charlottetown’s Tyler Smith team, which includes Ryan Abraham, Jake Fleming, and Ryan Lowery, and the Katie Shaw rink, also from Charlottetown (and former Cornwall members), which includes Alexis Burris, Meghan Sherren, and Lexie Murray, were also in the event, with Smith finishing with a 4-3 win-loss record and Shaw going 0-4.

Upstreet Craft Brewing Tuesday night draw. Note: Seeking one more team!

Here is the first round draw for the Tuesday Evening Competitive League, sponsored by Upstreet Craft Brewing.

Note that there are currently 15 teams signed up, so there will be a weekly bye. The league would like to have a full draw of sixteen teams to eliminate the bye. If you would like to put a team into this competitive league, contact our manager at cornwallcurling@eastlink.ca

Description of draw: find your team and the date you are playing. The ice number is designated for 2 teams to play on that sheet of ice. For example: On Oct 29 in the Do Gooder Division, O’Rourke plays on ice #3 against Creighton, Schut against Spence on ice #4, McInnis against MacDonald on ice #2 and MacLean against Rhodenhizer on ice #1.
The BYE game (Commons Division) sheet is reserved for the team playing against the BYE for practice time, so DO NOT change your game to that time as we are still looking for a new team to fill the slot.
Notice the ice time rotates from 8:45pm to 6:45pm each week. This allows for consistency and equal early and late draws.
At the end of this round we will reset the teams according to points gained (TBA) during this round and start round 2 on Dec. 17.

Wednesday Ladder League Round One Draw and Schedule

Following Qualifier Night, the A and B pools have now been determined for the first round of the Wednesday Evening Ladder League, brought to you by new sponsor Charlottetown Bottle and Metal (A Pool), along with Sam’s Cornwall Restaurant (B Pool). The teams were numbered in random order within each pool for the first round using the Random.org List Randomizer

A Pool teams

  • A1-Kim Nicholson
  • A2-Peter Joostema
  • A3-Mark MacDonald
  • A4-Landon Warder
  • A5-Rob Gallant
  • A6-Kelly Watts
  • A7-Josh McInnis

B Pool teams 

  • B1-Greg Robertson
  • B2-Kellie-Lynn Younker
  • B3-Hank Kamphuis
  • B4-Clara Jack
  • B5-Dave Younker
  • B6-Greg Groves
  • B7-Paul Neima

As we have an odd number of teams (7) in each pool, we will have a crossover game each week against the same-numbered team from the other pool, which will always be scheduled at 6:30 pm. It is very important that you pay attention to this, as your pool may have the 8:30 draw on a particular week, but you may be in the crossover game at 6:30 (and you don’t want to miss it!).

The sheet that was used for the crossover game at 6:30 will not be used by this draw at 8:30.

The “B” pool (plus the crossover game) gets the early draw the first week, as they had the late draw for the last week last season.

We will be using all four sheets and the above 8 team, 4 sheet draw from Curling Canada, eliminating the game against “Team 8” at 8:30, and pitting the team in the early draw that was to play “Team 8” against the late draw team of the same number at 6:30 pm.

Help the environment by cutting down on single-use plastics with a water bottle!

Hydration is important during any sport, and the Cornwall Curling Club is happy to provide complimentary ice water for use during your game. With the current focus on cutting down on single-use plastics, starting with the huge success of eliminating single-use carry-out bags at PEI stores, you may want to consider getting a reusable plastic water bottle. Plastic cups cost a few cents each, and some PEI hockey rink canteens provide free water but charge a dime for the cup. We have no plans to charge for cups, but water bottles hold more, won’t break or spill water onto the ice if you drop them, ensure that you aren’t drinking from someone else’s cup, are environmentally-friendly, and look professional, too! Of course, when you get off the ice, it’s time to put the bottle away and continue your hydration at the bar!

Another Lenentine curling in Cornwall!

Club President Bryan Sutherland (left), with Hazen Lenentine

Welcome Hazen Lenentine – one of our new members this year!

Hazen participated in our three-day Learn to Curl sessions last week and has signed on as a Daytime Member. The Lenentine name is well-known at our Club, as former member Lauren, now curling in Winnipeg, is a World Junior Champion, so we’ve got high expectations for him, and, by all reports, he was a fast learner at the curling school!

If you are interested in signing on as a Cornwall Curling Club Daytime Member, please contact the Club at (902) 566-4427,  and we can explain our daytime leagues to you!

50 X 50 draw (with new annual payment option) starts next week!

The sign up for our weekly 50/50 is now OPEN. Members can pay at the bar (Cash only – no Debit or Credit for this) two ways:
(1) Pay $46 for the whole year (covers 23 weeks of curling). This makes them eligible for all draws for the year, even if they are not at the club. They do not have to sign the book.
This must be paid in full by November 7th.

(2) Also, you can still participate the same way as last year:
Drop your Toonie in the jar at the bar and sign up for that week.
Unlike previous years, others may now pay the Toonie, and sign in for you.
Draws are made on Thursdays evenings weekly (or the next day if we’re closed). Winners get half the pot, including the portion from those who pay annually. The pot continues to grow each week until a name is drawn AND the person is signed in or is an annual purchaser.

The draw for Thursday October 31st will take place Friday November 1st as we are not holding curling that evening due to Hallowe’en.

Storms and other cancellations will not affect the draw – it will now be held weekly, rain or shine!

Sign in weekly or buy an annual signup, and spare yourself the anguish of having your name drawn, but not being able to bring home the cash because you didn’t sign in!

Beat the Buzzer! A few simple tips to speed up your game

The Cornwall Curling Club, like most curling facilities, tightly schedules its draws so that curlers don’t have to curl late at night, or right after work. Because of this, we allocate 15 minutes per end of curling, or 2 hours for a normal eight-end draw. In order to ensure that this happens, we ring a buzzer 15 minutes before the end of the allotted time slot. (Note: a Board of Directors decision last year has moved the buzzer time to 10:25 from 10:15 for 8:30 draws, as they do not always get going on time due to ice preparation between draws). When the buzzer sounds, we ask you to finish up the end you are on, and then take the rocks back to the home end if necessary. In other words, you have to be in the hack throwing your first rock in your last end by 15 minutes before the end of the allotted timeslot in order to get all the ends in. In order to keep things fair, we do this on the late evening draw as well as the early draw, to ensure that everyone is treated equally and you aren’t here too late at night. Whenever possible — i.e. there is a bartender on duty — the Board of Directors has voted to use the buzzer for all draws. You may not have heard the buzzer yet this season as we normally don’t activate it during opening week, to give you some adjustment time.

Here are some tips to help you get eight ends in:

Other suggestions:

– don’t waste time on easy-to-decide shots such as single hits. Save your strategy sessions for the tough shots with many rocks in play.

— NEVER set up rocks for the other team. This is an old “courtesy” that is no longer practiced, as it can be dangerous if the rock is not where the member of the other team expects it to be, and can actually slow down the game, especially if they, for example, want to throw their rocks out of numerical order. Use your time instead to get out of the other team’s way as quickly as possible, so they can set up and deliver their rock.

Teams set for Round One after Wed. Ladder League Qualifier Night

It was a great start to the Wednesday evening ladder league, with some closely-fought matches last night. In the early draw, it took three draw-to-the-button attempts before the Peter Joostema rink got one touching the button to advance to the A pool in their game against Greg Groves. Mark MacDonald won over Greg Robertson in another close game, while new (to us) curler Landon Warder, down a couple of curlers for opening night, picked up a win over the Clara Jack junior rink with the help of spare Sharon Campbell. Kelly Watts, with Joe Callaghan sparing for Paula Ling, won over Kellie-Lynn Younker and her new team. 

In the late draw, Josh McInnis advanced to the A pool with a win over the Hank Kamphuis rink, who were a man short for opening night, Kim Nicholson beat Dave Younker, and it came down to the last rock in a very evenly-matched contest between the Paul Neima and Rob Gallant rinks. Gallant had that rock and made the shot for the win.

Here are the teams for Round One. The draw/schedule will be posted in the next couple of days.
The B pool will have the early draw next week, as they had the late draw the final week of last season (apologies to the A pool teams that have two 8:30 weeks in a row!).

Note that each week there will be a crossover game between the two pools. This game will always be at 6:30 on ice 4, so, when the schedule is out, pay attention to which of your games is the crossover to avoid showing up at 8:30 for a 6:30 game

Pool A skips:

Mark MacDonald, Landon Warder, Peter Joostema, Kelly Watts, Josh McInnis, Kim Nicholson, Rob Gallant

Pool B skips: 

Greg Robertson, Clara Jack, Greg Groves, Kellie-Lynn Younker, Hank Kamphuis, Dave Younker, Paul Neima
