  • Start of the 2019-2020 curling season: It came down to the last draw, but Team Yellow was victorious over Team Blue
    Thanks to all participants who showed up during the week
    It was a great way to "ease" into the curling season
     
  • 2019-2020 Hudson Legion Golf Tournament: Our second annual Golf Tournament was a great success
    A total of 22 golfers participated. The numbers were down slightly as the date conflicted with a tournament at Como [better coordination of the dates for next year is recommended]

    The weather definitely cooperated to make this event a fun and memorable day

    Several extra events were also included in the event; a Chipping, Putting and Par 3 contest
    The chipping and putting contest held before the games were scheduled were very popular as it got everyone involved and added to the fun atmosphere of the event, Winners of these two events were Bill Hesketh and Barry Rowlands. Eric Cormier won the Par 3 contest. Eric generously donated his winning to the Fund-Raising event

    The Best Ball event was won by the team compromising John Coutts, Edmond [The big Easy] LeBoeuf and Jon Bazar who shot a blistering -8

    But the true winner was the Nova Organization. The event was a fund raiser for this fine organization, with all funds collected in memory of our recently lost friend Serge Berube.

    A total of $455.00 was collected for the cause;

    A special thank you goes out to Sonya Horan, Roger Lauzon and Joan Bazar who freely donated their time to make this event a truly special day

    We had 22 people who attended the hamburger dinner after the event.

    A total of $110.00 was collected, against expenses of $144.42 [which included prizes for the tournament]. The leftover food will be used in the next Tuesday hamburger event, so, in essence we may have broken even.
     
  • 2018-2019 Club Championship and season-ending banquet: that’s it, it’s over, the 2018-2019 season came to a close with a round of curling games to determine the club champions and an awards banquet afterwards. Rob MacLean and his rink comprising of John Burgess as lead, Allan Jones as second and Dan Belliveau as third were crowned the Club Champions after defeating the Jim Putnam rink skipped by Mike Normandeau. Team MacLean took an early 2-0 lead after the first end and after a blank in the second they kept increasing their lead until the fifth when Señor Normandeau did his best Roberto Duran imitation and yelled “No mas!”. Similar fate awaited the Bill Langdon rink playing against this season’s Cinderella story, a complete unknown coming out of nowhere Team Jon Bazar, with Lance Hodgson as lead, Steve Shaw as second and John Coutts as third, in the President Trophy game. Four points scored by Team Bazar in the third end gave then a cushion that even Bill Langdon’s famous ticky-ticky shots could not overcome and they shook hands after six ends. Photos of all the teams which competed in the finals are posted on the Ladder page. Photos of action on the ice, sans Mike Normandeau, have been posted in the Archives and Photos page together with some photos from the awards banquet. Now, everybody make like Les Glorieux and go play some golf.
