Israeli Men's Curling Team with medals

ECC C-Group Silver Medals

Congratulations to the Men’s Israeli curling team, and in particular to East York’s own Yuval Grinspun (throwing third rocks) for their silver medal at the just completed European Curling Championships C-Group in Zoetermeer, Netherlands!

The team went 1-3 in their first games, but then went on to win their 5 remaining games to qualify for the 3-4 game in the playoffs. In the playoffs they defeated Slovakia 7-6 in a tightly contested game, scoring 2 in the 10th end for the victory. The silver medal game saw them defeat Ireland 7-3 in a game which saw Israel steal or blank the first 6 ends for a 4-0 lead.

Having earned a top 2 finish, this team, along with Belgium, the gold medal winners, will play in the European Curling Championships B-Group in Champery, Switzerland November 22nd to 29th. The teams in that event include: France, Finland, Hungary, Netherlands, Estonia, Poland, Wales, England, Turkey, Austria, Spain, Croatia, Lithuania and Romania.

Good luck Yuval and team!

Little Rocks update

On Sunday, April 13th, the East York Little Rocks celebrated a successful season at our Closing Day and Family Fun Day.

We invited friends and family members on the ice to try curling (and get instruction from their own children!) Off the ice, we enjoyed food and drink donated by all the families. Then we gave out several awards and recognized our Little Rocks individually.

Congratulations to our 2013-2014 award winners!

Little Rocks Award: Gus Cousins

ELM Season Award: Dexter MacCall, Sarah Secord, Reva Weston

I’d also like to thank all our volunteers: Sandra Gabriel, Sharon Gough, Patrick Brown, Andy McLeod, Sarah Scott, Tim Gibbs, Maggie Bissett, Josh Price, Ethan Hollingworth, Warren Carruthers, Cole Walker, Ian Taugher & Duncan Melchior. This program would be impossible without their help!

Enjoy the summer and we hope to see you back in the fall!
