Jamie Newson rink wins third consecutive PEI Mixed Championship

It’s a “three-peat” for the Jamie Newson rink from the Silver Fox Curling Club in Summerside, capturing their third consecutive PEI Mixed Curling Championship, edging Crapaud’s Nick Blanchard team 7-6 this afternoon at the Maple Leaf Curling Club in O’Leary.

L-R: PEI Mixed winners Jamie Newson, Melissa Morrow, Andrew MacDougall, Miranda Ellis

Blanchard won the first of three triple-knockout section qualifiers in the event, while Newson captured the next two, and the first of two possible championship games. Had Blanchard won the game, there would have been a sudden death game Monday evening, but a win in the first match gave Newson the title.

(L-R): PEI Mixed Finalists Nick Blanchard, Stephanie Schnare, Jamie Stride, Terri Wood, with Bill Smith, Curl PEI Treasurer

Blanchard led the game 4-3 at the fourth end break, but a pair of Newson deuces gave him a 7-4 lead. Blanchard was kept to singles in ends seven and eight, giving Newson the 7-6 win, and a return trip to the Canadian Mixed Championship, to be held Nov. 7-15 at the Canmore Golf and Curling Club in Alberta.

Nine teams representing five curling clubs took part in the PEI Mixed Championship.

Jamie Newson wins B and C qualifiers and needs just one more win for a 3rd consecutive PEI Mixed title

It was a super Sunday for two-time defending PEI Mixed champion Jamie Newson and his Silver Fox team, winning both the B and C qualifying games, over “A” qualifier Nick Blanchard of Crapaud, for the Monday championship round at the PEI Mixed Curling Championship in O’Leary. By winning two sections, Newson will have  “double life” on Monday, winning the championship if he takes either the 2 pm or the 6 pm Championship Round games, while Blanchard would have to win both games to be declared champion.

In Sunday morning play, deuces were wild for Newson in the “B” qualifier, where he scored four of them (including a steal) and kept Blanchard to singles for an 8-3 win.

In the 2 pm “C” semi-finals of the modified triple-knockout draw, Blanchard eliminated Charlottetown’s Alex MacFadyen squad by a 6-4 score, while Newson got off to a fast start in his game against Philip MacDonald foursome, following a first-end triple with a stolen second end single to lead 4-0 after 2 ends. MacDonald was kept to a single point in three and a pair of Newson deuces in ends four and five put him into an 8-1 lead. It was handshakes after MacDonald took 1 in the sixth, with a final score of 8-2 for Newson.

The 6 pm “C” qualifier game saw Newson blank the first two ends, and score a deuce in the third. Blanchard blanked the fourth and Newson stole a single in the fifth end. Blanchard was kept to a single in the sixth and a Newson deuce in the seventh put the game out of reach with a 5-1 final score.

The PEI Mixed championship team will advance to the 2021 Canadian Mixed Championship, Nov. 7-15, 2020, at the Canmore Golf and Curling Club in Alberta.

Nine teams representing five curling clubs took part in the PEI Mixed Championship.

Meet Uttara Deshpande, curling’s unlikely champion (CTV News)

Uttara Despande

Uttara Despande and Sandra Walker posing as 2019 Canadian Women’s Stick Curling Champions in Cornwall, P.E.I. 

HALIFAX — Everyone has a story and Uttara Deshpande’s is truly a remarkable one.

Spoiler alert: it comes with a uniquely Canadian twist.

“I’m proud of myself and my family,” said Deshpande. “They’re the ones pushing me.”

Her modesty aside, Deshpande has always pushed herself; in life, in her travels and on the ice.

Deshpande’s Canadian story begins in 1983. Born in India, she immigrated with her husband to Canada, where they raised their two sons in Nova Scotia. She says as a family, they quickly adapted to life in their new country. They made friends, enjoyed the culture, her husband carved out a successful career and as a family they quickly adopted an appreciation for local sports. One sport that caught Deshpande`s attention was curling.

“It looked easy when I saw it on the TV,” said Deshpande. “But ice made me nervous.”

She decided to try it, without much initial success.

“As soon as I saw the ice, I was just frozen. Literally my coaches were holding me up to get up,” said Deshpande. “I knew this is not going to work for me.”

Pushing those doubts aside, she persevered. Deshpande signed up for curling lessons and she joined her husband for early morning practices — always striving to improve. In time, her peers began to take notice. Deshpande was getting better. Her hard work was starting to pay off.

“She never gives up,” said Sandra Walker, who curls with Deshpande at the Glooscap Curling Club in Kentville, N.S. “She practices and practices and practices and always wants to improve.”

Sport stories often come equipped with turning points. Deshpande’s pivotal moment in curling was being introduced to Stick Curling, which allows curlers to use a stick to send the rock down the ice, instead of the traditional method of delivering curling rocks while sliding low to the ice. The switch to the stick was a game-changer for Deshpande.

Adult Learn To Curl in PEI – a Curling Day in Canada story from Cornwall member Chris MacDougall

In January 2017 I started curling with my spouse and six other friends. Having not curled before we signed up for an 8 week learn to curl program facilitated by Curl PEI along with 44 other participants. The program was hosted on alternate weeks by Cornwall Curling Club and the Charlottetown Curling Club. There we learned the basics techniques of throwing and sweeping rocks, the game rules and curling culture. It was well run with lots of knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteers.

We enjoyed the game, people and culture so much we joined an end of year bonspiel at the Cornwall Curling Club called the Red / Blue. Our first full games and experience with the club members! The Cornwall Curling Club members, executive and staff made us feel welcome, had encouraging words for us newbies and were just a lot of fun.

So, in October 2017 I promptly registered for Monday and Thursday Mixed Recreational leagues. Sometimes on Thursdays I played a second game as a spare for the next draw and we were practicing on Sundays. After Christmas I joined a team for the Wednesday Semi-Competitive league when a spot opened. Curling three nights a week was great fun and exercise. For the 2017 / 2018 season we played in the KenMac Spiel, Mixed Doubles, year end RED / BLUE and I joined the Club”s executive board.

Before the 2018 / 2019 season I injured myself. I had to back off on my curling schedule and intensity. I played Monday and Wednesdays when I felt up to it. We played in the KenMac Spiel, Club Championship, Curl for Cancer Spiel, Year End RED / BLUE and Melt the Ice. For the Club I Chaired the Fundraising and Sponsorship committee and volunteered for the club spiels and events such as ParaSport Curling and the U-13 Fun Spiel. What I learned more than anything this season was that curling is great for all abilities, young or old, recreational or competitive there is a place for everyone.

After spinal fusion surgery in the summer of 2019 my curling future was in doubt. I was fortunate, it healed well. I worked on the ice making crew in October and I joined the Monday Mixed League. Since I physically couldn’t get down in the hack or slide I started curling with a stick and limited my sweeping effort because I wasn’t to stoop or bend. After the first week I felt good so I joined the Wednesday Semi-Competitive league and started regularly sparing on Thursday Mixed League. After a couple of weeks, I moved my delivery from the stick to a stabilizer. Six more weeks and I found I was delivering with a broom again and my sweeping was progressing. After Christmas this year I was able to rejoin the Thursday Mixed League as well.

Curling has been a journey the last three years. I’m continuing my club Executive Board work and volunteering. I have met many new people and I am proud to call them friends. Curling has also given me an opportunity to give back to my community.

‘Amazing’: Two Maritimers (including Cornwall member Lauren Lenentine) celebrate world women’s junior curling title (CBC)

Two Maritimers are part of the top junior women’s curling team in the world.

Truro’s Karlee Burgess and Lauren Lenentine of New Dominion, P.E.I., represented Canada on the Manitoba team skipped by Mackenzie Zacharias.

They beat South Korea 7-5 in the gold-medal game at the world junior women’s curling championship on Saturday in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. South Korea was undefeated entering the final game.

It’s the third world junior title for the 21-year-old Burgess, who was playing third stone, and the second for Lenentine, the lead.

In a text message from Russia, Lenentine, a student at the University of Manitoba, said “the entire event was amazing.”

“The arena was like nothing I have ever competed in before, it was absolutely breathtaking. Without a doubt, the best event I have ever attended.”

Without a doubt, the best event I have ever attended.— Lauren Lenentine

Lenentine’s parents, Robbie and Jennifer Lenentine, were in Krasnoyarsk for the final and celebrated with the team afterward. Though the celebration was quick, she said.

“When the game was over, the closing ceremonies [were] immediately after so we got our medals then, which was amazing. Then, the closing banquet was immediately after that, so we haven’t had much time to let it sink in.”

Dolan, defending men’s champ Gorveatt both unbeaten and 1 win away from 2020 PEI Seniors titles

Play continued Sat. and Sun. at the PEI Seniors Curling Championships here in Cornwall, with eight men’s and four women’s teams competing to advance to the 2020 Everest Canadian Senior Curling Championships, March 16-22 at the Portage Curling Club in Portage la Prairie, Man.

The Kim Dolan rink from the host Cornwall Curling Club and the defending champion Phil Gorveatt squad from Charlottetown remain undefeated with 5-0 and 6-0 records respectively and have captured both the A and B sections of the modified triple-knockout draw as well as advancing to the “C” qualifier games at 10 am Monday, against Cornwall’s Shirley Berry and Charlottetown’s John Likely rinks, respectively.

A win in either the “C” Qualifier or one of the two championship round games Monday at 2 pm or Tuesday at 10 am would give Dolan and/or Gorveatt their respective titles, while Berry and Likely would have to win all three of their games to be declared champion.
