Congratulations to SCC’s Team Wadland in winning the 8th Event at the Alexander Keith’s City of Ottawa Bonspiel which was held in clubs around Ottawa March 13th through 17th. This huge event took place among fourteen clubs with 128 rinks participating. Dean Wadland led his rink of Mike Stefanik, Rob Klees, and Charlie Brown to victory over Team Jamieson of Metcalfe in the 8th Event finals on Sunday. Wadland ended with a record of 7-2 after playing games in Navy, Rideau, Manotick, Carleton Heights, Ottawa Curling Club, RA Centre and Ottawa Hunt.
This was the first time both Wadland and Klees played in this event with Stefanik and Brown attending previously. Overall, all of the matches were very tight and well curled. Team Wadland battled against teams from Shawville, Pointe Claire, Peterborough and then the Ottawa area. Every one of them were great competitors and a lot of fun off the ice.
There were three other SCC teams who made the trek up to Ottawa including:
Team Brooks: Tim Brooks, Dan Machold, Ted Kreutz (of Plainfield), Jim Jordan
Team Fitzgerald: Pat Fitzgerald, Art Merkely, Kirk Wallace, Jeff Mayott
Team Rzonca: Marek Rzonca, Dion Warr, Dave Hooper, Jeff Muha
And with 128 teams involved…amazingly Team Brooks and Team Rzonca played each other! (Brooks prevailed)
Congratulations Team Wadland!
