The West Kildonan Curling Club is working hard to bring
you the best curling experience possible.
Last year we added a reverse osmosis water plant to make
curling ice from pure water. This year the club will
also enjoy reconditioned curling rocks. The rocks at
WKCC have been in use for some fifteen years and have
lost their edge. To have consistent play we have sent
out all the rocks to Canada Curling Stone for running
surface and strike band reconditioning.
I am sure that with the purest water for ice, freshly
reconditioned rocks, and Joe's ice making skills, we
will enjoy quality curling ice this season and for many
seasons to come.
We have several new leagues joining the WKCC community.
I would like to welcome the following leagues who will
be curling their first time at WKCC this season;
Manitoba Junior Women's Super
Health Sciences Curling League
Winnipeg Steelers Curling
Winnipeg Musicians Curling
I am looking forward to seeing everyone on the ice this

Matt Dunstone's Manitoba rink won the
men's title at the Canadian junior curling championship on
Saturday night with a 4-3 victory over Alberta's Thomas
Scoffin in Fort McMurray, Alta.
Tied in the 10th end, Alberta got a
break when a Manitoba peel attempt on Dunstone's first
delivery nudged one of Alberta stones in the house to bite the
button, corner-frozen to a Manitoba rock.
Scoffin froze to his own frozen rock,
and Dunstone played a peel-weight double takeout for the
It's Manitoba's first gold medal since
2002, when Winnipeg's David Hamblin claimed the Canadian title
at Summerside, P.E.I., and the seventh Canadian junior men's
title won by a Manitoba team.
Dunstone, 17, was backed up by third
Colton Lott, second Daniel Grant, lead Brendan MacCuish, while
Scoffin teamed with lead Bryce Bucholz, second Landon Bucholz
and third Dylan Gousseau.
Dunstone reached the final after a pair
of must-win games Friday — over Saskatchewan's Brady Scharback
in the last game of the round robin and against Ontario's
Aaron Squires in a third-place tiebreaker — before winning 9-4
over Nova Scotia's Stuart Thompson in the semifinal earlier
The loss ended a bid for back-to-back
gold medals for Alberta at the tournament.

Kildonan’s Brian Leskiw not only scored an
eight-ender on Saturday night against Morris’

curling feat, which took place in the fourth end
of what turned out to be an 11-3 Leskiw victory at
the Granite, might have been historic,
Bonspiel officials haven’t had an eight-ender
reported in at least 10 years. Another official
said it was at least 25 years.
