A small contingent from this area represented our District 7A Senior Games Association very well at the 55+ Winter Games at Huntsville on February 26-28,2013. Four Ten Pin Bowlers and one skater competed in tough weather conditions with the bowlers winning a gold medal in close competition against 10 teams. They had to travel to Barrie to play while George Wilson skated in a “predicted time”competition at Huntsville.
Over 900 seniors who stayed at the Deerhurst Skyline Resort ,competed in 10 winter sports which had to be played in many different venues. The Closing Ceremonies were held at the Deerhurst Skyline Lodge.
Guy Chaput, President of our local senior games association reported the bowlers bowled 286 pins above average to win the 2 day competition. Members of the team are Ray Henderson,Ken Brown, Brian Truelove and Guy Chaput. Congratulations for bringing home honours to our rural municipality.
