Jawny Bakers Bulldog wrapup

Another edition of The Bulldog Men’s Cashspiel @ East York Curling Club has come and gone.

While we had a slight glitch with the ice plant, I want to thank all teams for their patience and understanding. The ice crew did a fantastic job getting things back on track and for their quick turnaround of ice all day.

If it were not for the mishap with the ice, I may have been able to declare this year’s event the best ever. We can certainly still do better. I hope all teams will consider coming back next year for an even better day of curling.

I want to congratulate Team Mitchell (Garth Mitchell, Rob Retchless, Don Shane, Stu Moir) from the Oakville Curling Club as the overall champion. They took home the winner’s cheque of $1,000. In total, we paid out over $3,600 in cash plus hundreds of dollars in door and draw prizes. Please see below for the final list of winners.

The event would not have been possible without the support of our title sponsor, Jawny Bakers Restaurant. Please visit them if you are ever in need of some food or drink, and remember to let them know how much their support was appreciated. We hope to bring them back as our title sponsor again next year.

I also want to thank our other supporters, including Sleeman Breweries, Flemingdon Park Golf Club and Vale for donating some great door and draw prizes.

I regret not being able to be in attendance. Work has taken me away to Japan. I couldn’t have pulled it off from overseas without the help of Aidan Ritchie, Trevor Sone and Elana Sone on the day of, Robert Bunten for being my slave leading up to the event, our ice crew, bar staff and kitchen, and our facility manager Carolyn Fleming.

Lastly, I want to thank the curlers for good curling and great sportsmanship. For teams who drove tens of hundreds of kilometers (or miles) to get here, I hope you found it worthwhile.

I will be back in Canada in early December and I hope to see many of you on the ice later this season. If not, I hope to see you at the 2012 edition of The Bulldog Men’s Cashspiel.

Good luck during the rest of the season!
