March Wrap Up & Player’s Championship coming up

Tuesday, 8 April, 2014

 

March was an up and down month for Team Stoughton.  It all started at the Tim Horton’s Brier in Kamloops where we were looking to move up the podium from the 2013 Brier where we finished runner-up.  Unfortunately for us, we ended up moving the wrong way on the podium and finished the brier in 3rd place and coming home with the bronze medal.  Not quite the color that we were looking for, but we are proud of the effort we put in to prepare for the event and felt like we put ourselves in a great spot to challenge for the championship.  Special Congratulations to Mark Nichols for being named All-Star second for the Brier.

Immediately following the Brier we traveled to Fort McMurray for the Syncrude National – Grand Slam event.  We struggled to find our game during this event and finished with a 2-3 record and out of the playoffs.  We’d like to say a special thank you to all the volunteers and event staff in Fort McMurray who put off a great event even through some difficult circumstances.  We are sure future events will be held in this area and know that all competitors would love to be a part of any event held!!

Finally, Team Stoughton traveled to Grand Prairie for the Pomeroy Inn and Suites Prairie Showdown.  Here, we put together some pretty good games in a row and after 6 wins in a row, we found ourselves in the final vs. Team McEwen.  It was a back and forth game, but we fell short by a score of 6-5.  Special thanks to everyone involved in putting this event off.  It was another great event, and one we hope to have the pleasure in playing in once again.

With April comes the final event of the season – The Players Championship, which takes place in Summerside, PEI.  The Players is always a great spiel featuring the 12 best men’s and women’s teams from this past season.  Thanks to everyone for their support over the season.  It is much appreciated

 

Special Announcement from Team Stoughton

Friday, 14 February, 2014

Striving for perfection..

Team Stoughton announces that they will be shaking up their lineup for the 2014 Brier, with Mark and Reid switching positions.
 
The background is that first and foremost, Team Stoughton is always looking at ways to improve and get the most out of our game. We recognize how important it is to consistently build and manage ends from start to finish, no matter the situation. Our competition is fierce and requires you to play at the highest level possible. 

In examining our team, we came to the conclusion that we may not be maximizing the skill set everyone brings to the game. In Reid, we have one of the great touch players in the game today.  Mark has mastered the lead position in a short time yet we haven’t forgot what he’s known for most! Mark is an outstanding takeout artist and we believe this switch in roles will maximize the skill-set that these two possess. It may just add that tiny percentage that is the difference between winning and losing at the highest level!
 
As a team we have decided to make this switch because we believe it will give us the best chance to maximize the talents we each possess. It’s a commitment to our team and being the best we can be!
