The 2011 Dominion Curling Championship ends with the closing banquet

The 2011 Dominion Curling Championship ended with a closing banquet at the Hudson Legion Branch 115.

All the curlers together with their family members, the organizing committee, the volunteers, representatives from Legion Command as well as invited guests looked back at the events of the past week, exchanged souvenirs, talked about the roads they took to get to the championship and looked forward to next yearís championship which will take place in Saskatoon between March 16 and 23.

The main purpose of the event, however, was to hand out awards and to crown the new champion.

Dominion Curling Championship under way

The 55-th Dominion Curling Championship is under way.

After an impressive opening ceremony, the first draw took place at 3 pm and nearly 100 people were there to watch the action.

Reminder to everyone: each day during the competition, a 50-50 draw takes place at 7 pm. Tickets can be purchased during the day at the Legion.

Special presentation by Team Newfoundland and Labrador

At the beginning of the first practice session prior to the start of competition, team Newfoundland and Labrador made a very special presentation to one of the volunteers who is providing help that is very much appreciated.

The person whom they recognized was Norm St. Aubin who has offered to be the teamís driver as soon as the news was announced that the Hudson Legion was going to host the Dominion Curling Championship again this year. The last time that this event was hosted by the Hudson Legion branch was in 2002 and that year Norm was also the driver for team Newfoundland and Labrador, which at that time was represented by a team from the town of Carbonear. Normís family has strong roots in Newfoundland so it was very fitting that he would choose to be the driver for that provinceís team.

Dennis Byrne, the skip of this yearís team, presented to Norm a team jacket with the name St. Aubin stiched on the back. Here they are during the presentation and with Norm proudly wearing the jacket.
