SPORTSNET: Jones stays golden to win Manitoba Scotties
Reigning Olympic champion Jennifer Jones ran Kerri Einarson out of rocks in the 10th end and captured her seventh career Manitoba Scotties Tournament of Hearts title with a 5-2 win Sunday in Winkler, Man. The Winnipeg team of Jones, third Kaitlyn Lawes, second Jill Officer and lead Dawn McEwen stayed golden throughout the tournament finishing on top of the Asham Group in the round-robin stage with an undefeated 7-0 record and beating Einarson 9-6 Saturday night in the page playoff 1-vs-1 game. Einarson, who went 7-0 in the Extreme Force Group, held off Barb Spencer 5-3 in the semifinal earlier in the day to set up the rematch. Jones opened with the hammer and already held shot stone before throwing her final rock and looked to score two. However, her rock had a little too much heat on it,...
CURLINGZONE: Hogline violations taint Junior Final
Watch for yourself and tell me this shot should be a hogline violation. This was not even close and someone needs to answer how this could happen. Danielle Greenlees throws lead stones for Ontario’s Team Brandwood and had two stones pulled early in the Championship Final against Alberta’s Kelsey Rocque.

OTTAWA CITIZEN: Speed skaters De Haitre and Blondin win top awards at Ottawa sports dinner
At the age of nine, Vincent De Haitre decided to retire as a speedskater. He had lost interest. But his parents insisted he find another sport to remain active and fit. So, he snapped on some alpine skis and was introduced to competitive racing through the Nancy Greene Ski League. Well, that only lasted one year. “Something was missing and I went back to speedskating. I missed the competitiveness of bringing together speed skating and going fast,” De Haitre, 20, said about his return to the oval. “I went back to the (Gloucester) Concordes and told myself that if I go back, I have to give 100 per cent. You can't do something if you're not going to be the best at it.” Related Awards winners, the complete list

THE CURLING SHOW: Steve Laycock of Saskatchewan, 2015 U.S. Open of Curling champion.
He showed his savvy ways as a currency trader when he led his team to a win at the U.S. Open of Curling in early January, securing a wad of American cash to spend on a vacation in Palm Springs. But Team Laycock has done more than just win in the USA â€;quot; they've made big strides this year and are consistently in the hunt at major events. A runner-up finish at the Pinty's Grand Slam of Curling Canadian Open indicates that this team has moved into the top tier of elite teams. I hope you'll pay attention to the introduction of this podcast and think about making a donation to support web streaming of the US Men's and Women's Nationals. If you've been a fan of this podcast for a number of years, I would really appreciate your support of this effort. If you don't want to donate here, you...
BOB WEEKS ON CURLING: Tartan Club: Hip to be cool
So how do curling clubs attract potential new players to the game? If you're the age-old Tartan Club in Regina, you open the doors up to rockers according to;nbsp;this story;nbsp;on club, in a strategic location, has opened its doors to a regular Friday night event called The Blender. Most of those attending are part of the local live music scene including the organizer, Piper Burns, a drummer who worked at the club as a teenager. He's put together a pretty good deal.;nbsp;Many are more comfortable playing rock music than throwing rocks, but all of them have shown up to learn a new sport, drink a few beer, and hear some good music. Ten bucks gets you a drink, two hours of curling and a local band. No experience is needed, no special equipment required, and you don't...

GRASSROOTS CURLING: Five things I learned from hanging out with Team Glenn Howard
The Team Glenn Howard Fantasy Curling Camp wrapped up at the Guelph Curling Club on Sunday afternoon, ending three days of - of - of what? Learning, laughing, and a fair bit of pain (delivery, after delivery, after delivery....!) Moments of illumination, moments (long ones!) of frustration. Good times with new friends. Lots of failure. A few successes. And a long list of "Things I'm going to do
COACH BILL: Had it! Lost It! How Do I Get It Back?
In most, if not all sports, there's a "critical skill/element" that can't be bottled up, stored, and taken off the shelf when needed. We hear about a gifted pitcher who, for reasons unknown, even though he's applying the same mechanics as always, steps to the pitcher's mound and his pitches don't move the way they should. Great pitchers don't jump off tall buildings when it occurs. Or the elite basketball player whose free throw shooting percentage is in the high 80's or low 90's but on a given night, couldn't throw a table tennis ball into a trash barrel from 3' away.Frustration soon sets in. "Why can't I do what I know I can do when I need to do it, because I usually can?" Well, one thing's for sure. You're...
BEHIND THE GLASS: Pipelines and Things
It is fair to report that our sport has enjoyed great success at recent Olympic, World and European events.;nbsp; You may well argue that it has never been healthier and that we live in a golden age of success.;nbsp; If you look at the international achievements of the likes of Anna Sloan, Greg Drummond, Michael Goodfellow, Scott Andrews, Tom Brewster, Claire Hamilton, Vicky Adams, Lauren Gray, Eve Muirhead and David Murdoch - to name but ten, and in no particular order - well, you cannot really argue.;nbsp; These people have been prepared to commit wholly to their sport; they have given up huge amounts of time and effort and, yes, they are living their dream. But the rest of us should never forget that they didn't achieve this success by accident: they visit the gym regularly; they put...

BELFRY CURLING: Something to think about with Ontario men's playdowns
Brother and Sister curlers, When I first started The View From The Hack a little over two years ago I always knew that the time would come when I could no longer devote as much time to the blog as I would like – one other thing that I was certain of was that I never wanted to walk away from or give up on this project entirely. It is with these two thoughts in mind that I write this post today. As of Monday 17 November I will be starting a new job as a Reporter with the Dunfermline Press – a publication that I am sure many of you will be familiar with and one which you can now expect to feature curling on a regular basis! Working full-time means that I simply won't be able to dedicate as much time and effort to writing for TVFTH as I have enjoyed in the past. But this is not the...
CURLING HISTORY: The Gilmour Trophies
by Bob CowanIn a previous post (here) I wrote about Lady Henrietta Gilmour, a pioneer of women's curling in Scotland at the end of the nineteenth century. In this article we move forward to the season of 1912-13. Her husband, Sir John Gilmour, above, has just completed his year as President of the Royal Caledonian Curling Club. Although suffering from rheumatism, he still curled at Montrave whenever he could.Sir John had wished to present a trophy to commemorate his year as Royal Club President. It was suggested that he might consider presenting a trophy for women's play. Hence at the Annual Meeting of the Representative Committee of the Royal Caledonian Curling Club on Thursday, July 24, 1913,in St Margaret's Lecture Hall, Dunfermline, the following was announced:"Sir John...
EDMONTON JOURNAL: Kevin Koe, Jeff Stoughton advance to Direct Horizontal Drilling Fall Classic semifinals
Kevin Koe stole a point in both the seventh and eighth ends to defeat Saskatoon's Kevin Marsh 9-7 on Sunday night in the quarter-finals of the Direct Horizontal Drilling Fall Classic at the Crestwood Curling Club.

Koe, Stoughton and Laycock all have perfect 4-0 records this weekend. The final is set for 2 p.m. Monday. At the Curlers Corner Autumn Gold...
MIKE THE CURLING GUY: Dear Santa - Don't put me on the naughty curler list
Dear Santa;Once again, I am writing to you with a set of wishes for Christmas for me and some of my fellow curlers. I realize that I was on the "naughty" list last year, which explains the autographed Wayne Middaugh shirt I found under the tree. Unfortunately I have not been able to find a good home for it on eBay yet, but I am still trying. I feel that I have been particularly nice this year; my broom slamming and throwing was limited to but a few thoroughly justifiable occasions (I think even Mrs. Claus would have whammed something if her draw had stopped an inch short of shot in an extra end); hardly enough to warrant inclusion on the infamous "naughty curler" list.So here are some gift suggestions:;nbsp;- For Mark Dacey; a postcard from Charlevoix - saying: Come Back...
