Curling Canmore Nov 1/3

A good time was had by all, Sherwood Park was well represented by three teams. The hotel in Canmore was great and the Saturday supper was super by all accounts. Unfortunately Lloyd had to cancel due to pneumonia so we picked up a recruit from our Senior Curling group at GARC. Dave Rozack joined us and is now quite interested in joining Gyro. We only came away with two trophies this year, with the Bill Austin team defending their rights to the B event trophy (Jim Mallot, Al Govenlock, and Ted Ewanchuk). Ray Davis was able to hang on to the D event trophy for Lloyd with his team of Dave Rozack, Terry Bajer, and Don Greig. Milt Lanes team ( Dick Caddey, Dorne Hunt, and Art Merrick) did not quite make it even though it was them who put the Davis rink down into the D event.
After the Saturday evening meal and before the poker game Terry Bajer was invited to the mike and entertained the group with a few good jokes and was well received, good job Terry.
The poker game was rather small this year only eight players joined in (three from Sherwood Park) Ray came away as the runner up in the winning event walking away with a cool $60.
Of course there was crib games and with out Lloyd there someone had to channel Lloyd, so Ray took on that task losing many games much to the delight of Dorne and Dick. Unfortunately Ray took down the guest with him, sorry Dave.

Cheers Ray
