Youth News and Events
On our closing day, March 27th, we had a fun day of skills, pizza and awards.
TFL curlers said:
"What how can this be the last day of the season?"
"I want to make sure that I get everyone's contact info so I can stay in touch through the summer!"
"Boo..hoo, no more home made treats like Deb's lemon cranberry loaf"
Parents comments were:
"The season went by all too quickley"
"We appreciated how organized the league was, enjoyed the warm, welcoming feel of the league"
"My son level of confidence has really been nurtured in this league due to the opportunity play different positions and curl with their peers in a non-competitive arena"
"My daughter found her love of curling again"
Thanks to the OVCA (again) we have a great trophy plaque to dedicate to three award winners in our first year. It was hard to speak over the excited chatter from the curlers who had now become good friends and were sad to say good bye to 2013 season.
Our 2013 awards went to:
Josh Luckett - Voted by his fellow curlers as the "Most Improved Curler" (click to enlarge)
We want to thank the parents who eagerly stepped forward to help out whether that was shovelling the side walk during the snow storm, bringing in delicious home made goodies, cleaning up the lounge or simply stepping in to organize the games/skills - everyone's enthusiasm & energy has made it a curling community worthwhile coming back to.
We have already started receiving registrations for next season! Quite a few of this year's TFL'rs will be returning for another season of recreational curling - and that is great news for us all!
Thank you for a great season
Roz, Deb, Kent

March 24, 2013. The RCN (Navy) Curling Club team of Andrew Kelly (Skip), Connor Stonehouse (Vice), Kyle Edmond (Second) and James Stonehouse (Lead) took first place and were awarded the Glen Sage Memorial Little Rock Championship trophy. The team is coached by Travis Moulding.
Eight teams who had previously competed to represent their Zone participated in this Eastern Ontario regional championship playdown. Little Rock curlers are made up of boys and girls aged six to twelve years old. Previous winners of this Championship include Rachel Homan (2000) and Emma Miskew (2001) who recently won bronze for Canada at the Titlis Glacier Mountain World Women's Curling Championship which took place in Riga, Latvia from March 16 to 24, 2013.

The Little Rock Championship has been held in the OVCA since 1990, to provide curlers a social and competitive championship to act as a springboard for Little Rock curlers to future bantam and junior curling. The LR Championship is generally contested by older Little Rock curlers, between 10 and 12 years of age, although it is open to all Little Rock curling teams, which are made up of boys and girls aged six to twelve years old.
Previous winners of this Championship include Rachel Homan (2000) and Emma Miskew (2001) who recently won bronze for Canada at the Titlis Glacier Mountain World Women's Curling Championship which took place in Riga, Latvia from March 16 to 24, 2013. Other winners have gone on to play in numerous Bantam and Junior Provincial, National, Ontario and Canada Winter Games.
