Rather sad if they don't...clubs love to have them and the curlers love seeing them.

That would be the biggest mistake they could ever do. im sure for the little cost of it, its a drop in the bucket.
It would take away anything that is left for someone to want to try and win a provincail event. Outside of the scotties or tankard you dont get anything in return for winning colts, silver tankard, intermidates etc. Execpt of course a large hotel bill and some hung over mornings. The banner is what people talk about and point to when friends and family show up at clubs.
If they go the way they have and say it up to the curlers to pay for it, then it will be tarnishing the feeling, if i have to pay for it then what stops me from just making my own banner and putting whatever i want on it.
Total bad idea.

There's a picture on the team Homan twitter account showing them holding a 2017 provincial championship banner after their win.

The provincial women all receive their banners at the Scotties.

Hi everyone ... Stephen Chenier OCA Executive Director

I really would love to know how these rumours and innuendo start and why so many people are so willing to bash the OCA on this site instead of asking the question first.

The OCA has never and will never consider not awarding banners for ANY of its Provincial Championships. This long tradition is a cornerstone of Ontario curling and will not be discontinued anytime soon.

The Scotties banners that were produced by Kruger for all the winning teams have been discontinued by Kruger and the OCA now prepares those banners for the winners as evidenced this year in all photographs of the Champions. (We also prepared a banner for last years Champion after being notified that Kruger was not supplying a banner).

Honestly if you want an answer just ask - it really is that simple. My email address is steve@ontcurl.com do not hesitate to contact me first before posting such fallacies and outright falsehoods.

As I have said Steve, the worst thing about curling is the condemnations which come from curlers who do not know what they are talking about.

It is such a great game but all we hear is the negatives, which in most cases are not true.

This thread came to an abrupt halt with no mention from the OP of the source.

I guess that was their 15 minutes.
