Today I Right a Wrong

And it takes an obituary I will post after my words to complete. The subject is Errol Klinck - a guy who competed hard in Winnipeg & Manitoba curling for the better part of 4 decades, perhaps 5.

He was better known as Colonel Klinck - and for all the nicknames I have ever conjured up for curlers, builders, media, etc. that is the single best nickname EVER in curling circles.

Errol even came within a couple games of getting to the 1985 Brier - the manitoba championships degenerated into a mish-mash of no names and never weres. One of them was Errol Klinck, the Colonel. The other was eventual winner Lloyd Gunnlaugson - who pioneered a team of plus 50s into the Brier including the wily craftsman of the ice lanes, Albert "The Plasterer" Olson and Toro Suzuki who as a sidenote built my family home in the late 50s in south winnipeg.

Errol was the epitome of the roarin' game - he played not because of medals or high honours but because he loved the game. Today, I hope that the game loves him back - even if its just for a quick glance and nod to The Colonel.

Colonel never got to The Big Show. Until today. He was one of those guys who easily might be categorized a "Never Was".

But tonite the light shines brightly as we, the curling community honor the life and times of Errol Klinck. Rest in Peace, Colonel. Rest in peace!

so rude, after a gentlemen's obituary and certainly not called for. Just trolling.

I, too, see nothing wrong with ML's post. It's respectful of the gentleman's passing.

It should be added that the Colonel spared for Woody with Don Duguid and won the MCA Grand Aggregate in 1971, and won it skipping his own team in 1974. His grandfather Ozzie Barkwell skipped the first Western team to attend the Brier in 1927.

We recorded a Curling Legends Podcast in a while back...
http://curling.libsyn.com/episode-6-errol-klinck

Curled with two of his sons over the years and still good friends with both of them. One of the great characters of Manitoba curling. He will be missed.

We have a tendency to forget the legends of the game as time marches on. Thank you ML for this tribute.

While it is certainly befitting to
pay tribute to fellow curlers who have passed, I do not believe this belongs anywhere in the general curling chat forum called "Rock Talk". CurlingZone did establish a forum to accommodate this specific kind of a situation: it's called "Obituaries".

It wasn't trolling. It was in response to the title of this thread. What wrong did he right? Once again, he tried to make something else about himself.

it was rude and trolling. This is not the type of thread to nit pic on. ML posts on many threads, I am sure you could have found a different one. It is a man's obituary!

Nit picking about the title, the forum....so immature and stupid. Perhaps the heading of the thread was something to do with Errol and ML.

There are better things to do in life AND on forums than nit pick at a respectful post.

Rest in peace Errol!
