Special to The Standard
Port Perry’s Bill Kennedy skipped his team of Roy Faulkner, John Malloy, and Bob Byers to win the seventh annual St.Andrew’s Battle of the Clans Senior Mens Bonspiel at the Port Perry Curling Club. Kennedy scored big in his first game taking all ends and then took five ends in his second game on his way to a convincing win. Bob Kochan from Oshawa Golf finished second while Uxbridge’s Murray Ferguson finished third. Thanks to the Trading Post Quality Foods for their sponsorship of the event.
Tim Hortons Scugog Cup hits the
ice this Weekend
The Port Perry Curling Club will be hosting sixteen mens competitive teams at the eighth annual Scugog Cup Cash Spiel. The organizers are very pleased to welcome Tim Hortons Durham Region aboard as the event’s new title sponsor.
For most teams, this Ontario Curling Tour event is the last spiel on their competitive schedules, so their last opportunity to fine-tune their shotmaking before play downs start in early December. The competition will be fierce, with many local teams competing, including Uxbridge’s Rob Houston, Port Perry’s Don Beaton and Glenn Evans. Teams from North Bay, Grimsby, and Listowel are also making the trip. All will be competing for their share of the $8,000 prize purse.
Play starts Friday night and runs all weekend. Event Finals will be held Sunday at 3 p.m.
