Happy March! At time of writing: oil is sitting just above $50; Calgary is having a Chinook while the East Coast is getting hit by their third major snowstorm in a week; the Jets, Canucks, Flames and Canadiens are all in playoff contention (knock wood…) and the CSEG Symposium honouring Dave Grey is looming. I worked with Dave previously: brilliant AND a nice guy too... looking very forward to hearing people speak to his achievements.

Doodlespiel 2015 Results

The 43rd annual 2015 Doodlespiel has now come and gone and this year we had 86 teams with over 400 participants. The host town of Banff and the Banff Curling Club again created an amazing venue for the Doodlespiel that was enjoyed by all.

The A event final had the Hansen rink against the Gill rink and it was an exciting back and forth game as the lead changed hands several times. In the end, the Hansen rink consisting of Sterling Hansen, Matt Ng, Joel Kotkas, Igor Senek, and Daniel Perez won the A event. This win is the second Doodlespiel championship for the Hansen rink.

Other event winners include:

B Event:
Sandy Jenkins
Scott Law
Jeff Deere
Andrew Boland
D Event:
Victoria Joliffe
Scott Sverdahl
Grant Williams
Chris Baldwin
C Event:
Warren Murray
John Ropchan
Brian Irwin
Christian Eastham
Cathy Parr
Shawn Traxler
Geoff Castle

Team Spirit best costume awards go to:
1st Place: Mario Kart – Team Jeroncic

As Chairman of the 2015 Doodlespiel, I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of the sponsors of the 2015 Doodlespiel. Without the continued support of the industry, this great event would not be able to continue. Sponsorship and overwhelming participation of our industry continue to make this the largest curling bonspiel in Western Canada. As outgoing Chairman I am confident that next year’s Doodlespiel committee will no doubt deliver another excellent event. The committee wishes everyone a safe, healthy and prosperous 2015 and look forward to seeing everyone in Banff for 2016.
