M.T.S.E.P.C.A. Provincial Report 2013
The MTSEPCA held its play downs the weekend of February 1 – 3, 2013 at the Thistle Curling Club. We had 8 teams competing for our provincial championship and a chance to represent Manitoba at the 50th TCTECA National Championships. The ice and the competition at the Thistle were great with many close games. Congratulations to the Reimer winning squad, consisting of Warren Reimer, Kevin Meadows, Nickie McKim, and Mike Mainman.The Reimer rink went through the weekend undefeated. They defeated the defending champion Murray Woodward team, comprised of Murray, Gary Shibata, Blair Smith, and Ashley Meakin, in both the A-Final and the B-Final to earn the right to represent Manitoba. The Reimer team is thrilled to be going and really looking forward to the final National competition in Regina. We are expecting a small contingent of fans to make their way west to enjoy the 50th festivities.
It is a bitter sweet win as this competition marks the end of an historic era in Telecommunications curling. Your current Manitoba team representatives for 2013, the Reimer team, past team representatives, current and past executive and Manitoba fans and many volunteers take this opportunity to say "thank you" for 50 fantastic years. The amount of time and dedication it takes to run provincial competitions is no small feat and most certainly the ability to run a National championship is monumental. The competition, camaraderie and memories will continue for years to come.
Since Warren and Mike are both on the MTSEPCA executive, at this time, the sole delegate for this year will be Don Van Achte.
