Curl<strong>Manitoba</strong>’s<br />

Strathcona Trust Senior Men’s<br />

Provincial Championship<br />

Killarney <strong>Curling</strong> Club<br />

February 21 – 25, 2013


Message from Curl<strong>Manitoba</strong> President Resby Coutts<br />

It is a privilege for Curl<strong>Manitoba</strong> to<br />

be in Killarney for one of our<br />

provincial <strong>championship</strong> events in<br />

this 125 th anniversary year for the<br />

organization.<br />

We thank the Killarney <strong>Curling</strong><br />

Club and community for the energy<br />

and imagination of your volunteers<br />

and the support of both sponsors<br />

and fans as we showcase the best<br />

50+ men curlers in the province.<br />

However, we must be mindful as<br />

we showcase the excellence of some of the finest curlers in <strong>Manitoba</strong> and<br />

Canada that our sport faces challenges across the province.<br />

As an association of member clubs, Curl<strong>Manitoba</strong> is committed to<br />

strengthening the partnership of & with clubs in renewing our sport. While we<br />

recognize our <strong>championship</strong>s as the ultimate opportunity for those curlers who<br />

set their goals at this level, we must also recognize our sport is simply a<br />

recreational and social outlet for many more people.<br />

Perhaps more than any other, our sport uniquely allows people to participate<br />

in a great game and often to cross back and forth from one end of that<br />

spectrum to the other.<br />

The challenge for each of us who loves the game is work together and to be<br />

creative in ensuring curling remains strong as a recreational or competitive<br />

outlet for <strong>Manitoba</strong>ns.<br />

On behalf of Curl<strong>Manitoba</strong> I want to express our continuing appreciation for<br />

the vision of the leaders of the former Strathcona <strong>Curling</strong> Club, whose legacy<br />

continues through the Strahcona Trust support of this <strong>championship</strong>. And I<br />

extend our thanks, as well, to our many provincial sponsors & partners as well<br />

as our many volunteers and I repeat our thanks to the Killarney community for<br />

hosting this <strong>championship</strong> in our 125 th anniversary year.<br />

A brief history of<br />

Strathcona <strong>Curling</strong> Club<br />

On a Sunday morning in 1908 after church, three men<br />

got to talking. From that casual chat of R.J. Gourley,<br />

J.T. Haig, and Walter Payne, the formation of the<br />

Strathcona <strong>Curling</strong> Club began. The contract for the<br />

building was signed December 29, 1908 and the rink<br />

was ready for curling by February 1, 1909.<br />

The five sheet club was located just north of Portage<br />

Avenue between Furby and Langside Streets. This<br />

facility served its members until the end of the<br />

1967/68 season when the club’s property was sold.<br />

The Club itself operated in other facilities until the<br />

end of the 1981/82 season.<br />

This <strong>championship</strong> is sponsored by the Strathcona <strong>Curling</strong> Club. The original trustees<br />

are Jack Callum, Lyle Henry, and Bruce M. Hudson. Bob Scales has taken Lyle<br />

Henry’s position for the 2009 season onward. The trustees are in care of the<br />

presentation of trust funds to Curl <strong>Manitoba</strong> to conduct the Provincial Senior Men’s<br />

<strong>Curling</strong> Championship in perpetuity. The Championship has been in existence since<br />

1985.<br />

The Strathcona Trophy, emblematic of the Provincial Senior Men’s Championship, is<br />

presented for annual competition to recognize the contribution to curling made by the<br />

Strathcona at the executive and competitive levels, nationally, provincially and<br />

locally.<br />

Three members of the club served as President of the Dominion <strong>Curling</strong> <strong>Association</strong><br />

(forerunner of the CCA) - Senator John T. Haig, Gordon M. Hudson, and Jack<br />

Dutton. Nine members served as President of the MCA -Senator John T. Haig, John<br />

S. McDiarmid, Robert J. Gourley, Gordon M. Hudson, Clifford R. Hudson, Jack<br />

Dutton, J. Ken Watson, Leo E. Johnson, and Bruce M. Hudson.<br />

On the ice, Strathcona’s rinks captured seven Brier Championships – Gordon M.<br />

Hudson (1928 & ‘29), Robert J. Gourley (1931), Leo E. Johnson (1934) and J. Ken<br />

Watson (1936, ‘42 & ‘49). In addition to the Brier winners, Strathcona rinks won<br />

eleven more provincial <strong>championship</strong>s with Ross Kennedy, Albert Wakefield, J. Ken<br />

Watson, Leo Johnson (2), Roy Forsyth (2), Mac Scales, Norm Houck, and Bruce M.<br />

Hudson (2) as skips.<br />

The Strathcona <strong>Curling</strong> Club has forever etched its name in the history books of<br />

curling in <strong>Manitoba</strong> and Canada and although it ceases to exist as a club entity, it lives<br />

on through its <strong>Curling</strong> Championship namesake.
