Team Tim Shields scored an 8 Ender during their Thursday night Men's game on October 22nd.
"We were down 4 after 6 ends and needing to generate some points. Fortunately, with luck on our side, some great draws and sweeping by the front end, we managed to score 8 in the 7th end, and eventually the win."
The team consists of Tim Shields (skip), Gary Miller (Vice), Chris Stafleu (2nd), and Mike Jones (Lead and a first year curler).
The Ontario Curling Association is excited to announce the inaugural Hit, Draw & Tap Championship during the 2015-16 season! Hit, Draw & Tap or “HDT,” as we like to call it, is a youth skills competition where kids age 6-13 compete as individuals. HDT will group kids into three different age categories, and perform three different shots – a “Hit,” a “Draw” and a “Tap.” The difficulty of the skills are modified based on the age of the child.
This "Hit, Draw & Tap Championship" is for club members and non club members,... even non curlers... so anyone in the community, schools etc. can participate. Spread the word... bring your

As many of you know, York hosts a great school program on Thursday mornings. We have been giving local students the chance to try curling in conjunction with their physical education programs at school.
In order to host these groups we need volunteers to help with basic instruction. Our goal is to have one volunteer at each end of the ice. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE AN EXPERT!! We just cover the basics and get the kids into a game so they can see what fun our sport is and perhaps decide to take up the game.
Your help would be greatly appreciated and would allow York to continue a unique program we have offered for more than twenty years!
