It was double the teammates and double the action this weekend as CurlON hosted the Silver Tankard and Women’s Tankard Championships at the Annandale Golf & Curling Club in Ajax, ON.
The Silver and Women’s tankard is a peculiar format of curling where teams of eight players play two standard matches simultaneously on separate sheets. The collective score of both matches combine to declare a winner after 8 ends. Think of it as a mega curling mashup with 7 of your best pals versus another cohort of curlers!
For example: Team A faces Team B in a hotly contested matchup. The scores are as follows:
Sheet 1: Team A – 5, Team B – 7
Sheet 2: Team A – 9, Team B – 2
Combining the two sheets, we have a final score of Team A besting Team B 14-9. Team A would be declared the winners!
Now that we have the lesson out of the way, let’s celebrate our provincial champions! Congratulations to team Chilvers/Hogle of the Oshawa Curling Club consisting of Mary Chilvers, Stacey Hogan, Suzanne Miller, Mandy Aston, Lisa Hogle, Stephanie Van Huyse, Lori Spray & Krista Pace who stormed their way through to the provincial title.
On the Men’s side, it was a clean sweep for the gentlemen from the Cataraqui Golf and Country Club. Congratulations to team Beuk/Staples comprised of Luke Johnson, Mike Hull, Matt Mills, David Staples, Andrew Inouye, Wesley Forget, Scott Chadwick and Jon “Beukie” Beuk.
