A tremendous effort was put forward once again by another 36 Humber Seniors curlers, joined by 4 equally wonderful Mississaugua curlers to compete for our bi-annual Knight Trophy.
Two 6 end games were played with coffee service between games. A rolloff skills competition was also held between games to serve as a tie breaker and for additional glory to the highest team. The rolloff format was slightly altered this year to allow each team to alternate drawing to the button with each stone being removed between each shot. In one instance two teams were tied after game 1 in (rocks, ends and rolloff score) and so two additional skip stones were drawn to the button to determine the game 1 winner.
Three teams were tied for first place after game 1 with 26 points and the two teams with the higher rolloff were also tied in that regard. A coin flip was called to determine the top seeded team.
In a field of 10 teams the highest ranked team played the highest ranked loser from game 1. 2nd played 5th, 3rd played 4th, 7th played 10th & 8th played 9th place.
At the completion of play the top three winners were as follows:
3rd place – Team – Larry Wright, Sandy Gray, Gord Burrell, Earl Nixon
2nd place – Team – John Rudd, Gary Halpenny, Bill Lynes, Joe Pace
1st place – Team – Lou Scaglione, Jim Jennings, Marilyn Rudd, Craig Franklin
The high rolloff winners – Team – Joe Caruso, David Kitchen, Marc Leger, Alex Grant-Henderson
50/50 winners – Team – Michael Battaglia, Greg Waterman, Warren Baker, Dolly Murray

Hal Dickout was on hand this morning before our Wednesday league matches to make a special presentation to Skip, Hugh Chesser. Hal was able to obtain from St. George’s Golf & Country Club the banners that were won by Humber Seniors during the playing days at St. George’s.
Thank you Hal! It is wonderful to see these banners once again!
