A Bit of History: The McLellan Cup

This is the oldest continuously challenge trophy in North American curling. This year marks its 112th year. It was first competed for in an inter-Provincial Bonspiel between the New Brunswick and Nova Scotia clubs at Moncton in 1887. It was the gift of the Honourable D. McLellan, Provincial Secretary of N.B.,1883, and Member of the Legislative Council to 1890.  Travelling along with this trophy are massive record books that document each game that has been played in the competition over the years. Included are club represented, team player names, and game scores.

Could we have had a better weekend? I don't think so! First, the reason we hosted was to crown the winning teams for the province. Little did we know we would claim both of them! Our winning teams, Team Sanford (Holly, Kim, Lynda and Nancy) and Team Anderson (Scott, Ian, Shane and Alan) did us proud as they claimed the titles. We're looking forward to seeing your provincial banners hung in the ice shed:).

No event can be staged without the help of many and this one was no exception. Alena Turnbull organized our registration and we missed seeing her smiling face greeting the teams. Hope you are feeling better. Keeping the players in order, doing coin tosses and gathering signatures was capably handled by Ryleigh Lake and Bruce Turnbull. Long days were put in by both.2019 Club Curler Alan Marshall Scott Anderson

Talking about long days, our ice crew (Perry Graves, Peter Milne, JP Boudreau and John MacDonald) led by Tony Stirling did an amazing job keeping the ice competition worthy!
