Would love to see the Brandon Brier committee bring in as many folks from the 63 and 82 Briers. Hackner won't be too tough to track down, nor the Manitoba rep - Mel Logan, who put up a heckuva fight battling pneumonia and made playoffs before succumbing.
'63 reps will be harder to find - Ernie Richardson (event winner) is still alive but he'd be around 89 when the event convenes. Ron Northcott, playing in his first brier (I do believe) is still alive but I wonder if his '63 skip is too, Jim Shields. Glenn Harper was the BC rep - don't know his status. Hersh Lerner is probably the sole surviving member of the Manitoba team - Cole Staniloff passed away nearly 25 years ago - Bob Lemecha & Mr. Dudar may still be alive.
Would also love to see homage paid to Matt Baldwin - but Matt would be around 94 or 95 when the event goes!
I'm one of the good guys now!
