Happy New Year! There are a couple of things that I would like to highlight this month. First up, HUGE congratulations go out to the Canadian Team of Adrian Smith (U of Calgary) and Darragh O’Connor (Dalhousie) who beat out a team from India to win the Seventh Annual SEG Challenge Bowl. We are very proud of you! And secondly, I would like to congratulate the Athabasca Oil Corporation’s MOvember Team who were ranked #2 out of 22670 teams (in Canada and Worldwide) raising funds for Prostate Cancer research! The “Athabasca Oily Strands” have raised over $188,000! Congratulations also to the team from MEG Energy (“The Big Mo”) who are ranked #4/22670 and the team from Tourmaline (The ReiMo’s) who finished #5/22670! GREAT work Gentlemen… now please stay clean-shaven for a while.
41st Annual Doodlespiel!
The 2013 Doodlespiel will be held on January 24th – 27th, 2013. The committee is already working to ensure that the 2013 event will carry on the success of last year's return to Banff. However, because of a conflict, the committee has had to make alternate accommodation arrangements. For 2013, the Banff Caribou Lodge and the Fox Hotel will have rooms blocked for all curlers.
Please visit the Doodlespiel website (www.doodlespiel.com) for more details about the 2013 event as well as registration and sponsorship forms.
