GOLDLINE CURLING:

Curling Calender - September 2014 The 2014/15 curling season has arrived!  Although many club curlers do not start regular season play until after Thanksgiving, the high performance teams have already been battling it out on the ice. The first event on the World Curling Tour calendar, the Baden Masters, was held August 29-31 in Baden, Switzerland.  Twenty teams took part, and in the end, it was a contest between two Goldline ambassadors for the title.  Congratulations to Team Ulsrud who defeated Team De Cruz in the finals. At the Stu Sells Tankard in Oakville, ON Goldline Ambassadors Team Jaggi, Debbie McCormick, Team Paetz played on the ladies side while Team Edin battled on the men's side.

BOB WEEKS ON CURLING:
NB curler attempting to play 100...
Here's the story of Rob Swan who curls at the two-sheet club in Harvey Station, N.B., who wants to focus some attention on small-town curling clubs. Many, Swan says, are facing difficult times as they struggle financially with dropping memberships and much-needed repairs.;nbsp;To do this, Swan is going to try and play 100 game in 100 different clubs over the next few months. He'll wrap up at the Tim Hortons Brier in Calgary, where he'll just watch, not play.;nbsp;"I have emailed approximately 120 curling clubs across the country, asking for one game, no money, just the one game, and our supporters here in the curling club are out getting sponsors," says Swan."We don't want to lose this club. In this area alone, we have had three clubs go under for whatever...

Curling treasures
A few curling treasures discovered recently on the bookshelf in the parlour of my cousin's old farmhouse in Nova Scotia: Looking for instruction, anyone? I want one of those sweaters. Just saying. It's all about the draw, says Mr. Weyman.  And inwicks, outwicks, chaps and chips, of course. I love this so much, I don't even know what to say about it!!

USA Curling Update: Brady Clark...
It was a light weekend on the WCT circuit for Americans: 2012 USA champion Brady Clark's team was the only one participating for points. The HDF Insurance Shoot-Out in Edmonton was a triple-knockout tournament, and they started off well with a 5-3 win over Thomas Usselman, then lost their next three games, all in the eighth or extra ends, twice losing with hammer in the final end.A 1-3 record didn't yield any WCT points, but it was a strong showing. They were in a position to win every game they played. It's tough to win in Alberta â€;quot; 7 of the top 50 WCT teams hail from there. Based out of Seattle, Clark is well-positioned to play teams from Western Canada, stay high in the ranking and still contend for the US title.This weekend: There are four events on the WCT tour, with the...
CURLING HISTORY:
...
by David B SmithOn a recent surf of the internet seeking items of curling interest I was quite surprised to see in a Swiss auction house's catalogue a modest sculptured relief of a modern curling scene. The relief was said to be made of 'Englischzement' and it was signed by the sculptor Rolf Brem. It did not take long to ascertain that the piece had been modelled by one of Switzerland's most famous, popular, and prolific sculptors, whose long life had centred on the Swiss city of Lucerne. He had died in 2014. There was lots of material by him on display on the net but as far as my researches went this was the only depiction of curling. I therefore resorted to my old and faithful friend, Max Triet, who was until his retirement director of the Swiss Sport Museum in Basel,...
BEHIND THE GLASS:
Stones of Destiny!
It is 1972 and we are deep into the final of the World Championship in Garmish-Partenkirchen.;nbsp; Orest Meleschuk knows that he has to hit and stick within the eight-foot on tricky, heavy ice to score two and take the game into an extra end.;nbsp; His opponents were team USA, skipped by Bob LaBonte.;nbsp; Their round-robin records were Canada 7-0 and USA 4-3.;nbsp; Never was there such a mismatch, yet here we were - it all depended on the big fellow's last stone. Cigarette dangling from his lips, he threw his fateful stone; the sweepers give it an early bang with their corn brooms, but the stone suddenly sits back and they are called off quickly; contact is made, but the shooter rolls slowly out towards the eight-foot; and further out; and further out - helped on its way by some furious...

Morris announces curling sabbatical...
No Mo Johnny... unless... John Morris has spoken. The finalist from both the Brier and the Canadian Olympic Trials has issued a statement today on his immediate curling future, and here it is: This ad appears in our April issue After a lot of thought and deliberation, I have decided to take a step back from the game of curling next year. I had the tremendous pleasure of playing with three great, genuine teammates in Jim Cotter, Tyrel Griffith and Rick Sawatsky as we made it farther than I think anyone would have predicted for a team playing its first year together. You were all amazing, as was our coach, Pat Ryan, and our alternates Jody Epp and Jason Gunnlaugson. I am extremely proud of our squad for what we accomplished, and would like to thank my guys for helping me recover my passion and...
