1975 Manitoba Consols Curling
Never forget that one. We were the university champions and drove out to Brandon from Winnipeg to see some great curling. Weren't disappointed.
Rod Hunter (the hero) was down 3 coming home in the semi-final to a rambunctious group of pot-smoking yokels skipped by Magic Mark Franklin, 3rd Steve Decter, 2nd Ian Staniloff & lead Mark Malkin.
3 up coming home - my teammates wanted to go back to the hotel (or bar) and I begged them to stay - as I couldn't believe Hunter would concede against these misfits. We weren't disappointed. The bongers screwed up and Rod hung up a BIG 4 on them to advance to the final vs. Barry Fry - eventually won by Hunter.
Here's the personnel sheet from the Wpg Free Press - see if you can find Old Pablo El Diablo (Fresca) on the sheet. Perhaps he'll give you his memories of the event?
I'm one of the good guys now!
