  • a multi-generational gathering of curlers took place at Hudson Legion on Saturday, February 7th, to help warm up our seemingly never-ending winter. Thirty-four curlers ranging in age from 9 to 79-plus participated in a series of curling matches held throughout the day, under the ShiverFest banner.
    Players were assigned to either Team Putnam or Team Maclean, with points accumulated in each competition contributing to the overall scores. Players pitted themselves against each other in events such as Juniors v. Seniors; Doubles; Men against Women, and regular, mixed play. Two challenging curling trivia sessions helped even out the scores prior to the event-deciding Skins games.
    It was a great way to beat winter, bringing together curlers of all ages who were cheered on by many spectators. Hot-off-the grill pancakes were served up for breakfast, followed by toasted hot-dogs and wonderful home-made tourtières and chili for lunch all made possible by co-organizer Lisa Krebs. An amazing variety of delicious cupcakes were available to bolster players' energy levels as the day progressed.
    Shown in the photo are some members of the victorious Team Maclean, proudly displaying their ShiverFest curling rock trophy carved out of ice. Many thanks to everyone who helped make this successful event one to remember.

Important curling news and information

2014-2015 Hardy Rocks Belliveau Trophy winners

The Belliveau draw was a tight race all the way to the last day of competition, but Team Langdon ran away with the final two games of the playoffs. The whole team was shooting over 90% and when they missed their called shot the result was even better! (Does this sound familiar ?)
Congratulations to Bill Langdon, Dorothy Gauthier, Gilbert Berthoud and Richard Little.

2014-2015 Hardy Rocks Winnie Normandeau Trophy Winners

It was real nail biter right to the last draw today. Three teams were very much in contention.
Team Hesketh won in the morning putting them temporarily in first place.
Team Timm could become champions with a win or a tie and Team Hart needed a win against Team Lauzon.
Team Timm fell to Team Poulter that couldn't miss a shot.
Team Lauzon put up a magnificent battle but final succumbed to Team Hart.
Team Hart ended up tied with Team Hesketh at 20 points but was the overall winner in the tie breaker with 20 points to 10 points on the draw to the button!
