The Senior Men and Women
was held Dec 18 2019 with 35 competitors attending. The 2
game 6 enders mixed the curlers socially and in each game positions
were rotated. With the luck of the draw and solid team mates in both
games Lise Duguay had the highest total points. Congratulations
Lise. Denis Rossi 's total points set him up as the mid point
winner. Unfortunately Donna Carty had to leave prior to the second
round and consequently scored as the bottom competitor. We missed you
in that second round Donna!
The draw to the button was held between the two games and the winner
was Anne Jamieson being just 3.5 inches off the pin. Congratulations
The 50/50 draw winner was celebrated with a round of applause. It was
Cindy MacAskill. Don must be smiling. Cindy donated the $79.00 winning
to the developmental teams. (This under the old naming system is Bantam
curlers.) The Club thanks you Cindy for the donation of your winnings.
In closing many thanks to the personnel in the background who prepared and ran the event, to make it a success.

Don (Mac) MacAskill
It is with sadness and our deepest condolences to his family that the
Club executive announces the passing on December 6 of long time member
and past president Don MacAskill.
Don moved to Kapuskasing from Kirkland Lake and became a local
entrepreneur in various businesses. He quickly was taken by the sport
of curling. He enjoyed the social aspect of curling as well as placing
his rocks at the right place. In the early 1950's as a winter pastime
he curled in the two sheet club attached to the arena and became a
member of the East End Merchants team. When the four sheet club was
built adjacent to the arena in the mid-1950s (now better known as the
Park Inn) Don eventually had his name on a trophy, the Seagram KCC
Annual Year Champion 1964/65 trophy. His teammates were A. Kott (skip),
R. Faust (second), A. Belanger (lead) with Don holding the position of
Vice. When he was not curling Don helped serve up " Morning Class" to
fellow 'hurting' curlers in the marathon bonspiels of the era. Don was
known by many in the district as the provider of the magic potion that
would allow curlers back on the ice safely.
In recent years Don curled in the
Seniors League until like all older curlers his knees let him down.
This did not stop Don. By becoming wiser with age, Don assisted the
Seniors with morning coffee replacing " Morning Class" beverage and
volunteering his time with the never ending club chores. Don held club
executive positions over the years and in his senior years became the
unofficial 'official' Ticketmaster. Don sold his last 50/50 tickets at
the November 18 Spaghetti Dinner event, It was in 2019 that Don finally
sold himself a winning ticket after so many years of selling. Mac, you
have touched many hearts in your lifetime, your smile will be missed.
We will Miss You 'Ticketmaster'
