Over 80 Club of 2018
 
Nice to see this event continuing as an annual event. Mayor Steve Black and local media were in attendance. We were all entertained by Steve's participation and demonstration of his curling skills.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Over 80 Club of 2016
 
This is the forth time we have held this event (March 24, 2016) and it seems to be gaining in popularity and enjoyment. We had media coverage, the mayor attended and the teams were really into the game (won on final shot). Thanks to organizers Ray Schizkoske and Noel Arbic fun was had by all. Ray had placed the 10 participants into two teams and had them rotate at each position after each end so that all took part in the event. Mayor Steve Black, Gervais Pelletier, Noel Arbic and Wayne Jaszan helped with the sweeping. A cake was provided. Jim Hall provided some Boost and the players boasted.

Over 80 Club of 2015
 
For the third time since 2007 the New Horizons Curling League had a special game on March 19, 2015 at the 10:30 am draw. This year we not only had the eight curlers who participated who were over eighty, but we also had five spares ready to participate. Norm Beaudry introduced the team and commented on their achievement and introduced Mayor Steven Black and councillor Mike Doody who also commented on the historical meaning of the event. Mayor Steven Black  not only attended the opening ceremony with Mike Doody but he also participated as a volunteer sweeper for the two teams. Both skips were very impressed with his sweeping ability (could mean changes at council meetings perhaps).

The Good Eighties of 2007

Eight of our senior club members participated in a challenge curling game against each other on a regular curling day of March 28, 2007. The teams did not attract much attention at the time.  Though the winner of the game is not known, what was special about the game was that all eight members and one spare were all over the age of eighty years of age with some approaching ninety. What a feat!
Members were:
Dan Chenier           George Coupland
Tony Delost           Basil Libby
Barney Spence      Al Marcassa
Georgina Steep     Peter Skrumeedy
Spare: Tremain Banks
