Lakefield Curling Club Battle of the Sexes

by Cathy Orr

The Lakefield Curling Club has hosted the Battle of the Sexes Bonspiel as a club fundraiser for over a decade.  The event is sponsored by M&M Food Market on Queen Street in Lakefield. Manager Denise Love was on hand for some good curling and to present prizes.

This year six women’s teams and six men’s teams played against each other for the title of Winner of the Battle of the Sexes. Enthusiasm was high but attendance did not match that of the past years so Tom Sayers says that the club will discuss a new format with LCC divisions to look at a different format for next year’s bonspiel.

The Overall winner and winner of the second draw was skip Gerald Buxton along with Ken Richardson, Dave Lee and Jim Rickard. Second place in the second draw went to skip Tom McInnis along with John Staples, Joe Barillari and Ross Cation.  Third place in the second draw went to Dan Lemon, Chris Davies, Dave McIntosh and Karl Dreidger.

In the first draw the women’s team of Susan Sayer, Wendy Fucile, Jo-Anne Dowdell-Brown came in third place.  Team Cassidy came in second place with Jude Cassidy, skipping the team of Jack May, Ian Shaw and Bruce Little.  The first place winner of the first draw was Team Scriver. Harold Scriver was skip along with teammates: Joe Ellis, Jay Logan, Randy Edwards and Tom Sayer.

Sadly, long time curler and devoted LCC member, Harold Scriver, curled his last rock at the Battle of the Sexes. Harold suffered a stoke during the last end of his first game. Harold passed away that evening at PRHC with his wife by his side.  The LCC has lost a friend and teammate and we offer our deepest sympathies to Elsie Scriver and her family.
