Ontario Blind Curling Championships

Gold Medal

l to r: Bill Harrison (vice), Murdie Campbell (second), Darlene Woods (coach/guide), Bill Rizzo (spare from Kingston – lead), Steve Reavley (skip).
Our Team 1 were gold medal winners in the Recreational Division defeating our Team 2 by a score of 5 – 2. Both teams entered the game 2- 0. Team 1 played extremely well and were the only team in the 8 team field to go 3 – 0.


Bronze Medal

L to r: Bill Watson presents plaque to Sharon Ladd (skip), Eric Bourgeois (second/vice), Keith Doyle (lead), Bill Malcolmson (guide).
Our Team 2 won their first two games in convincing manner to advance to the final. It is a remarkable feat as both Keith and Eric are totally blind. Rookie skip Sharon Ladd is only in her third year of curling and Eric is a second year curler. A final huge shout out to coach Mary Malcolmson whose work behind the scenes made the whole trip much more relaxing and comfortable. Congratulations to both teams on their excellent showing!
