2013 Womens Masters Champions - Ontario - Team Potter

image_name2

Masters Champions of Canada = ONTARIO  wins the Gold Medals
Team Potter wins Ontario's 3rd Canadian Masters Championship (Womens)
This Team from Ottawa ( Silver winner in 2012) ran up a record of 9 and 1 through the RR and the playoffs and takes home the gold medals !  Double winners Joyce and Janelle are also Canadian  Senior Champions from a few years back.
Congratulations Team Ottawa, Team Ontario, now Team Canada ! Well done !
Experience takes the day in Thunder BAy

ON
- 9-1 Joyce Potter, Diana Favel, Janelle Sadler, Jennifer Langley - Ottawa, Rideau CC 
 
   Part of a great curling article here about team Potter: Courtesy The OTTAWA CITIZEN

As a 14-year-old, Joyce played lead for her skip/sister Muriel when they won the 1964 Saskatchewan schoolgirls’ title.Almost 50 years later, which included a 15-year hiatus from competitive curling to focus on family and work, the Rideau Curling Club member has established herself as one of the top seniors (50 and older) and masters (60 and older) curlers in Canada

Since returning to curling 15 years ago, Potter has won nine Ontario championships - two in the intermediate division (1999 and 2001), four seniors (2003, 2005, 2009 and 2011), and three masters (2011, 2012 and 2013).
Her provincial achievements qualified her for seven Canadian championships, which produced two gold, two silver and one bronze medals as well as two fourth-place finishes.

She won gold at the national seniors in 2005 and the 2013 national masters in April in Thunder Bay,  Click the link for the full article . tHX OTTAWA CITIZEN for the reporting curling.

2013 Mens Masters Champions - Alberta

image_name2
Canadian Masters Champions ! - clik pic for 2014 info

 Congratulations Team Calgary, Team Alberta, now Team Canada ! Well done !
10-0 Harold Breckenridge, Don Hier, J.R. McDonald, Gord Dewar -
Calgary, Inglewood CC

Team Breckenridge goes into the record books as the first Alberta team to win the Canadian Masters Championship(M).This powerful Team from the Inglewood CC in Calgary Alberta sports a undefeated record at the 2013  Masters Championship. That record  goes really well with the Gold Medals, along with getting  thier names engraved on the  Masters Champions Shield of Honour. At least two members of team Breckenridge played well in the Soo Brier when Ed Werenich won ( 1990) so Harold,Jimmy MacD and company now have many more special memories  about Canadian Championship Curling in Northern Ontario,especially about the Port Arthur Curling  Club In Thunder Bay !  Ontario was not going to take the Canadian Championship away from team Alberta this time as Team Alberta defeated Team Ontario in both the RR and the Championship game in 2013 ! 
Canadian Championship curling  -  Where dreams and hopes can be fulfilled !

We wish team Breckenridge best of luck in 2014. A repeat the win on home turf in 2014 would be sweet,as The Masters Canadians are in Coaldale Alberta in 2014 ! See you there !

Canadian Masters Curling Championship

CANADIAN MASTERS CURLING CHAMPIONSHIPS - CCA SANCTIONED IN 1999

The Masters Canadian Championship was sanctioned by the CCA delegates at the 1999 AGM.

     Masters Curling Championships of Canada has grown to 25 plus teams each year. This Championship is guided by the Masters Championship Committee. (They meet annually at the CCA curling congress). Each year a host committee organizes the Canadian Championship and takes the responsibility for funding  and sponsorships to  help provide the annual costs of hosting the Canadian Masters Championship. The CCA Member Associations  assist with some of the uniform, travel and lodging costs.

___________________________________________________________

      The future of  Canadian Masters Curling Championship  requires the resources of the CCA, the Provincial Associations along with existing support groups . Sponsorship  development  will strengthen further as the full resources of the CCA and Member associations are applied  to the Canadian Masters Championship Event. The Masters is now a part  of the annual CCA Congress process.  
Masters Curlers thank the efforts of The Canadian Masters Committee Members and  the  Championship event volunteers , who alongside the event sponsors make this event a reality each season !
Masters Curling -Since 1987 ! - Across Canada from year 2000 to present.
