Five-enders help S’Side’s Nowlan and Cornwall’s Berry win Ch’ship round berths at PEI Masters

On Friday afternoon at the Montague Curling Club, defending PEI Masters (age 60+) men’s champ Lou Nowlan and his team from the Silver Fox got off to a good start toward putting his name on the PEI Masters Champions trophy for the 16th time,  by winning the first of three men’s Modified Triple Knockout draws and a spot in the PEI Masters Championship Round with a 9-4 win over Cornwall’s Bill Hope foursome.

Lou Nowlan (in blue) delivers a rock, while Earle Proude sweeps, and Alan Montgomery keeps an eye on the line in the “A” Qualifier Game Friday afternoon

The game was actually extremely close, tied up going into the seventh end, but a steal of five points by Team Nowlan in that end gave him the lead and Hope was unable to recover.

Shirley Berry watches her rock in “A” Qualifier action Friday afternoon

The Shirley Berry squad from Cornwall won the women’s “A” Qualifier 7-3 over five-time defending women’s champ and Cornwall clubmate Sandy Hope. Berry stole a deuce and two singles to lead 4=0 after three. Hope came back with a single and a deuce to narrow the gap to 4-3 after 5, but Berry did the same, leading 7-3 coming home and ran Hope out of rocks in the eighth.

In the opening draw, Nowlan beat Clair Sweet and his team from the Maple Leaf Curling Club in O’Leary 8-1 while Hope recorded two 4-enders in a 12-4 win over clubmate Paul Arsenault in men’s play, and Berry beat Montague’s Bev Harding and her host club team 8-5, aided by a 5 point 5th end.

Play resumes Saturday with the “B” semi-finals at 9:30 am and the “B” Qualifiers at 2 pm. The “C” division games go Sunday at the same times, while the two-game championship round goes in the same time slots on Monday

Under the modified triple knockout format, a team can win more than one section, If a team wins all three sections, they will be declared champions without playing the championship round. A two-section winner will have a “double life” in the championship round, and win the event if they take either section, while their opponent, the winner of the other section, would have to win both.

The men’s and women’s winning teams, or finalist teams if they are unable to attend, earn the right to compete in the 2021 Canadian Masters Curling Championships, November 17-21, 2021 at the Pembina Curling Club in Winnipeg, Man.

Live end-by-end results from the PEI Masters are available at PEICurling.com/scoreboard

Prime Saturday ice times for rent!

iceforrent

From now until Easter we have prime time curling ice available most Saturdays for any group size up to 32!

Curling is a great way for family and friends to get together for fun & exercise!
It’s also a great “team builder” for businesses and companies.

Our facility is wheelchair accessible right down to ice level.

Pricing is similar to (and perhaps a little cheaper than) bowling. A group of 16 friends, family, or co-workers can rent two sheets for two hours (an eight end game, or a 6-end game with half an hour of practice) for $12.22 per person, taxes in!

We have a fully-stocked bar, and curling brooms and sliders are available for use. You will need to bring clean sneakers, and wear stretchy pants and a light jacket.

Pricing (call for other variations):

One sheet for two hours: $95.00+HST (Please note that we will only do one-sheet bookings if we have another sheet rented by another party or it’s a spare sheet during a regular draw)
Two sheets for two hours: $170.00+HST
Four sheets for two hours: $285.00+HST
Four sheets for four hours $320.00+HST
Four sheets for 8 hours $550.00+HST
For rental groups over 5 people, we require a $10 flat fee to cover the entire group’s rental fee for any equipment rental. That would equate to $2.00 or less (depending on your party size), per person.
 
Due to current PEI government restrictions, we can’t book groups larger than 32 (8 per sheet, 4 sheets).

Interested? Get in touch with the Club Manager Monday to Friday from 9 am to 6 pm at (902) 566-4427 or email cornwallcurling@eastlink.ca

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 approximately 15 minutes before the end of the allotted time slot. 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. 

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 (and currently prohibited under our COVID restrictions), 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.

Team Gunnlaugson with PEI’s Adam Casey again representing Manitoba at the Brier

(You may have seen Adam Casey on the ice at our Club this year — here’s why!)

Just before Christmas, CurlManitoba announced that it was cancelling their provincial men’s, women’s, and mixed doubles championships scheduled for February of 2021. They had previously announced the appointment criteria for teams to represent Manitoba at the national events in the event that provincials had to be cancelled.

Adam Casey (Curl Manitoba photo)

Last year’s Manitoba representatives at the Tim Hortons Brier, Team Jason Gunnlaugson, which includes PEI’s Adam Casey, accepted their invitation and will be making a return trip to the Brier, , Mar. 6-14, 2021, at the Markin MacPhail Centre, in Calgary, while Team Jennifer Jones will be representing the province at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts at the same venue in February. Fifth Lisa Weagle will be sitting in for Jones’ lead Dawn McEwen, who is pregnant and expecting in April, and has decided not to compete in the Calgary curling “bubble”. Manitoba’s Kerri Einarson team will also be there, as they won the Scotties last year and get to return as Team Canada.

Team Gunnlaugson had beaten Mike McEwen to advance to the 2020 Brier. In this year’s Brier lineup, Casey has moved from second stone to replace Alex Forrest at third, with Matt Wozniak joining the team at second, and Connor Njegovan again playing lead. Jacques Gauthier is alternate.

Casey is currently living in Charlottetown and keeping his game in shape by frequent practicing at Island curling clubs. As well as Manitoba, Casey, a native of Seven Mile Bay PEI, has also curled at the Brier for Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Saskatchewan.

Updated Mask Usage Policy

Cornwall Curling Club Mask Usage Policy

Current Chief Public Health Office guidelines require that individuals wear a facial covering/non-medical mask in all indoor public spaces on Prince Edward Island. Proper wearing of a facial covering/non-medical mask (covering both the mouth and nose) in the community can be an additional measure you can take to protect others around you, even if you have no symptoms of COVID-19.

These facial covering/non-medical masking guidelines set a minimum standard for businesses in PEI. The Cornwall Curling Club has chosen to exceed the minimum standards in this regard in order to ensure the continued Health and Safety of our membership.

These guidelines apply to all sports and recreation facilities, except during periods of Physical Activity. The Cornwall Curling Club in this circumstance defines Physical Activity as actively engaged in the playing of the game of curling only. Performance of warm-up activities is not included in our definition of Physical Activity. Facial coverings/non-medical masks must be worn at all times in the Club House area, including between practices and games. The only exception for wearing of a facial covering/non-medical mask is if you are seated at a table while eating or drinking.

We ask for your continued support and compliance in this matter.

Reminders to pickup your water bottles, and to claim last season’s locker items by month-end

This is a reminder to Club members to take home your water bottles after you curl — leftover bottles are located in the kitchen to the left of the bar, in the cupboard directly to the left or under it.

We also have some locker room items left over from last season. If you are missing any, check with the club attendant/bartender and ask to be let in to have a look. We will hold locker items only until the end of January, as we need to complete our cleanup of these rooms.

PEI’s Alison Griffin to compete in national Scotties again this year

While the PEI Scotties Tournament of Hearts Provincial Women’s Curling Championship has not yet been held (it goes Jan. 29 to 31 in O’Leary), one Islander is already set to compete at the national Scotties, which takes place February 19 to 28 at the Markin McPhail Centre in Calgary Alberta.

O’Leary native and former Iqaluit resident Alison Griffin (now back on PEI), who was one of our Cornwall Curling Club teams this past weekend at the PEI Mixed Doubles championship, is slated to curl for Team Nunavut again this year at the event, Nunavut did not hold a competition this year and is sending the same team as last year. This will be Griffin’s third time representing Nunavut at the Scotties.

Team Nunavut (L-R): Lori Eddy (skip), Sadie Pinksen (third), Alison Griffin (2nd), Kaitlin MacDonald (lead) Coach Donalda Mattie (not in picture)

PEI’s representatives will be either the Suzanne Birt rink, who curls out of both the Montague and Cornwall curling clubs, or Montague’s Darlene London team. Team Birt represented the Island last year.
