Final Draw Results and photos are posted here. / Les photos et les résultats sont affichés ici.


The Senior Men and Women Fun Spiel was held Dec 18 2019 with 35 competitors attending. The 2 game 6 enders mixed the curlers socially and in each game positions were rotated. With the luck of the draw and solid team mates in both games Lise Duguay had the highest total points. Congratulations Lise.  Denis Rossi 's total points set him up as the mid point winner. Unfortunately Donna Carty had to leave prior to the second round and consequently scored as the bottom competitor. We missed you in that second round Donna!

The draw to the button was held between the two games and the winner was Anne Jamieson being just 3.5 inches off the pin. Congratulations Anne.

The 50/50 draw winner was celebrated with a round of applause. It was Cindy MacAskill. Don must be smiling. Cindy donated the $79.00 winning to the developmental teams. (This under the old naming system is Bantam curlers.) The Club thanks you Cindy for the donation of your winnings.

In closing many thanks to the personnel in the background who prepared and ran the event, to make it a success.

Don (Mac) MacAskill
         It is with sadness and our deepest condolences to his family that the Club executive announces the passing on December 6 of long time member and past president Don MacAskill.

        Don moved to Kapuskasing from Kirkland Lake and became a local entrepreneur in various businesses. He quickly was taken by the sport of curling. He enjoyed the social aspect of curling as well as placing his rocks at the right place. In the early 1950's as a winter pastime he curled in the two sheet club attached to the arena and became a member of the East End Merchants team. When the four sheet club was built adjacent to the arena in the mid-1950s (now better known as the Park Inn) Don eventually had his name on a trophy, the Seagram KCC Annual Year Champion 1964/65 trophy. His teammates were A. Kott (skip), R. Faust (second), A. Belanger (lead) with Don holding the position of Vice. When he was not curling Don helped serve up " Morning Class" to fellow 'hurting' curlers in the marathon bonspiels of the era. Don was known by many in the district as the provider of the magic potion that would allow curlers back on the ice safely.
       In recent years Don curled in the Seniors League until like all older curlers his knees let him down. This did not stop Don. By becoming wiser with age, Don assisted the Seniors with morning coffee replacing " Morning Class" beverage and volunteering his time with the never ending club chores. Don held club executive positions over the years and in his senior years became the unofficial 'official' Ticketmaster. Don sold his last 50/50 tickets at the November 18 Spaghetti Dinner event, It was in 2019 that Don finally sold himself a winning ticket after so many years of selling. Mac, you have touched many hearts in your lifetime, your smile will be missed.

We will Miss You 'Ticketmaster'

A message from our president

It is with great sadness that I must inform you that our curling community has lost another longtime member. Wes Szyjka passed on Thursday, Nov 28.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family.  His contribution to the club activities over many years was always appreciated.
