It’s been another great year for the Open League and I wanted to quickly re-cap the events of the season!
50/50 Brier Challenge
This was the first season we ran our Brier Challenge and it was a great success! In about a week we managed to get 59 participants and we were very impressed to see that the curling knowledge at Dundas Valley is very high!
Big congratulations to our winners, Dan Schellenberg and Dave Gaylor, who topped the list with a whopping 53/68 correct answers.
A big thanks to Lori from Team Coe who ran the challenge and make sure to play next year when we make it bigger and better!
For the second year we ran our popular Team Hot Shots competition to see how you stack up against other teams. Based on the final overall standings we award one winner from A and B Flytes, and two winners from C Flyte.
Congratulations to our 4 Winning teams:
Team Goll (B Flyte – 41 pts – 6th OVerall)
Team WInslow (C Flyte – 46 pts – 4th Overall)
Team Snell (A Flyte – 48 pts – 2nd Overall)
Team L. Blonski (C Flyte – 50 pts – 1st Overall)
And, while there is no official prize except for the title “Best Curler at Dundas Valley”, congratulations to Paul Winslow for the highest individual points with 23!
Welcome Peter Kastrau, Brian Olson, and Brian Snell to the 200 Lifetime wins club!
Congratulations to Team K. Blonski for their record breaking season. They officially took possession of three long standing league records: 19 Wins (previously 18), 198 Points (previously 182), and 17 Game Winning Streak (previously 10). Check out how all the teams stacked up this season on our Single Season Team Records page.
Club Champions and Travelers Club Championship Representatives
Congratulations to our Club Champions this season: Kris Blonski, Russ Gray, Peter Kastrau, and Pete Child. Another congratulations go to our second place team, Team Coe – Candace Coe, Lori Eddy, Kristi Ahokas, and Roxane Dunmore: Both teams will represent our club at the Travelers Club Championship in October this year. Great job everyone!
FINALLY, great job to all the teams that made the finals this year but there can only be one winner in each flyte! So congratulations to the following teams for winning the playoffs:
A Flyte Playoffs: Team K. Blonski
B Flyte Playoffs: Team Maslin
C Flyte Playoffs: Team Sedgwick
D Flyte Playoffs: Team L. Blonski
Final 2015-16 Season Thank Yous!
I want to thank Todd for his fantastic ice throughout the year – without a doubt we have some of the best ice in Southern Ontario and we’re all lucky to have someone so dedicated to the club.
I also need to thank our sponsor, McNally Construction, without whom we couldn’t provide all the fantastic prizes at the end of the year.
As usual I’ll be making some tweaks to the league and the website over the summer, and I’ll see all of you again on September 28th at the Open House!
Thanks Everyone for another fantastic season here at Dundas Valley!
