    Inducted 12 April 2011

    Nominated by: Birgit Pearson

    Information

    Fern has been a member of the Huntley Curling Club for as long as I can remember. Fern was a member of the original start up Founders Club committee that worked hard to get our Club in place. In the early days of the Club and ever since, she has been a staunch supporter, always ready to help out with whatever needed doing. She spent many hours in the kitchen on Carp Fair weekends cooking breakfasts and entertaining us all with her stories and warm sense of humour. While she may not be remembered for her curling prowess, she nevertheless has all the right equipment! Her broom is famous, as is her feisty “up and at ‘em” philosophy. There is at least one buck that we know of who couldn’t keep a step ahead of her – ‘Gordon’ will always have a place in our Club thanks to Fern’s steady eye! True to her family values, she was a driving force in instituting the Clan Spiel, which is still going today.

    Fern reminded us again this winter at the Gore Mutual Provincial championships why she is so admired. She wowed the kids and audience by throwing the ceremonial first rock, but didn’t stop there – she took time to meet and talk to all the young people, holding court and charming them with her humour and spirit. The kids all loved her, as do we! I hope you will agree that Fern richly deserves to be named an Honorary Member.

    Inducted on April 9, 2017                    Nominated by:  Murray Pearson

    INFORMATION

    Members who have recently joined HCC may not have met Tom or Wayne, unless they have been to an event catered by Stu, Tom and Wayne's famous roast beef dinner. 

    Both accomplished curlers, they retired from the game a few years ago, but their story goes back a long way.  A year prior to the construction of the club, City View Curling Club offered their old ice plant to HCC. The guys generously used their big truck to pick it up, store it on their White Lake property, and deliver it to HCC when the building was ready.

    In the ground breaking year, both Tom and Wayne were on the work crews installing the reinforcing mesh prior to pouring of concrete over the insulation slab.

    During Carp Fair, they both did Friday morning breakfasts and, from 1998 to 2001, Tom worked all 3 days both morning and noon, including acquisition of supplies for both kitchen and BBQ tent.

    During the “Carp Classic” years, both were involved in the kitchen at each event and often at the closing Banquet, whenever their famous  “Hip of Beef” was on the menu.

    Wayne served on the Board of Directors for a couple of seasons, assuming the role of Draw Master.

    In 1998, Tom worked hard with others for over a week installing all of the chair rails and decorative base boards, and a year later, he, Wayne and Stewart Hitchcock replaced the rotting sink tops in the kitchen that had been installed without a water tight seal.

    They both were both a driving force in getting the Club off the ground, serving as Founding Members, making significant monetary donations, followed by many years of contributions to the Club. We owe them a debt of thanks - no one is more deserving - I am honoured to nominate them to our Honourary Members Club!

    Inducted on April 2015   

    Nominated by:  Murray Pearson

    INFORMATION

     

    When people ask how long Stewart and May have been curling, they answer "forever".  May grew up in Saskatchewan, where everyone curls.  She started with wooden rocks or jam pails on the skating rink ice, and over the years has curled in many clubs in Saskatchewan and Ontario.  May is not as interested in competitive curling and prefers club curling and the fellowship it provides.

    Stewart started curling at age 14 on natural ice at the Prince Albert Curling Club, where he won a spiel, a box of chocolates, and was hooked for life!  He honed his game at Saskatchewan's College of Agriculture, missing classes to curl, but graduating with a B.Sc. (Agriculture).

    Stewart returned to the family farm, and curled in P.A., serving 4 years as rink manager, managing 15 sheets of ice.  He also served as secretary-treasurer of a rural curling League with 32 teams, one year winning the championship. May also curled in P.A. at the club he managed, renting a broom from Stewart for 10 cents a game!  It took him three years to ask her out, but she knew a good thing when she saw it - they were married in 1958, have three daughters and 5 grandkids.

    In 1957, Stewart joined the Farm Credit Corporation, moving around, but curling at clubs in Tisdale, Prince Albert, Yorkton and Regina, and at the Tartan Curling Club for ten years, where he served on their Board of Directors.  

    Stewart was transferred to Toronto in 1973 to become Ontario's FCC Branch Manager. He and May joined the Richmond Hill Curling Club for 5 years, and in 1977, moved to Guelph, curling at the Guelph CC for another 5 years. 

    In 1983 they moved to Ottawa, curling in the DARA league at Lansdowne CC.  In 1987, Stewart retired, and he and May joined HCC, which then was a 2 sheet club.

    Ever ready to serve, in 1988, Stewart joined HCC's Board of Directors, working on various projects, and serving as President in 1989-90, after two sheets were added, effectively managing the onerous and ongoing challenges the expansion presented.   

    Stewart and May started curling afternoons, and through his leadership, grew the daytimers league.  In 1993 he organized and coordinated the fixed teams league for Monday afternoon and later donated the Give'N Take Trophy for annual competition (now held on Tuesday).  He arranged for the annual Daytimers Come and Curl Champions trophy.  He and May also started the annual  invitational Funspiels in 1993, organizing volunteers to run these for 21 years, raising about $1000 annually for our Club and improving HCC's public image.  They also initiated a program of friendly exchanges with 4 or 5 neighbouring clubs, which continues to be popular.

    Stewart was invited to enter a team (one of the first 4 to join) when the Senior Valley League started in 1992, and still skips a team and serves as HCC's representative - an activity he considers one of his favorites.

    Over the years, both he and May have been active volunteers at our Carp Fair Booth, selling Nevada tickets for the youth group and golf discount books to members, as well as many other contributions.

    Throughout his curling career Stewart has competed in numerous competitions and bonspiels.  In Ottawa, this includes the City Men's Spiel,  the Masters, the Gord Perry at the Ottawa Club, 222's, Senior Men's Spiels at Valley clubs, always enjoying every game, win or lose!  May has always been quick to volunteer whenever needed, an unsung contribution that is typical of her quiet, friendly nature.  

    Stewart and May have been goodwill Ambassadors for HCC for years, inviting guests, welcoming curlers and encouraging new members at every turn.  They hope to "keep right on rockin' and brushin' " as long as possible, and we welcome them to do so as Honourary members!

    Bob Hahn

     Inducted April 2015  Nominated by Murray Pearson

    Information

    Evening members who have recently joined HCC will not likely have met Bob Hahn, as he retired from active evening curling a few years ago, and only played daytime until retiring fully from the game in 2013. 

    But over the three decades, Bob has been an active member, curling at the Club, serving on the Board of Directors as Building Director, working on several projects (a list as long as your arm!) that improved our facility. 

    He served on the Ice Team for several years, using his technical skills as an electrical technician at CRC to build specialized boom & hand sprayers, house circle routing jigs and pump systems - whatever was asked of him - that contributed to the Ice Team's ability to perfect their ice making skills.  

    Being an avid curler, Bob saw the value and need for better viewing capability for those watching in the lounge, so he and his family donated and installed cameras that helped improve the curling experience.

    But that is only part of Bob's story and history with HCC. 

    Not many members would know that Bob was initially, one of a small committee of local enthusiasts - people such as Locks & Dixie Trenholm, Stu Hichcock, Keith Roe and Dave Lemke - who in the late '70's, launched efforts to convert a dream of a curling club in Carp into a reality. 

    A number of early meetings were held at the Hahn residence, where plans were made.  As you can imagine, the process was not without issues and challenges.  Eventually, with help from a Wintario Grant and lots of locally donated volunteer labour (his and Kurt's included!), the HCC was born.

    Bob's many contributions over such a long period show the kind of determination and strength of character for which he is known, and we hope he will continue to return to his 'alma mater' many times as an Honourary Member to watch his grandkids carry on the tradition!

  • Stewart Hitchcock

    Stewart Hitchcock

    Nominated by: Murray Pearson

    Inducted April 2009 

    Information

    Stewart was in search of a curling facility that was easily accessible to where he lived.  In the early stages of discussion regarding the possibility of a club, Stewart became an active supporter.  Soon, he volunteered to be secretary to a couple of committees whose primary mandate was to get people interested and committed to the development of the club.  Stewart holds the prestigious title of being the first member of the Huntley Curling club.

    In his own words:

    “When we began the conversation about a club in Carp, there was a friendly rivalry between South March versus Carp.  Lucky for me, Carp won.  I was always interested in seeing the club develop.  I liked the social aspect of the club; it is the people who make a club.

    The great thing about the Huntley Curling Club is what we can do! In recent years, the club has become more than a curling rink. We host many weddings, parties, hip-of-beef nights, socials, and other events, meeting every specialized need.”

    Off the ice:

    Stewart was an active curler in the men’s league. However, in 1999, Stewart became a member of the board and received the title ‘Kitchen Director’.  The club’s signature meal became a hip-of-beef cooked in an old washing machine that Stewart had taken apart and redesigned.  This ‘new oven’ was capable of cooking 110 pounds of beef at one time.  Fundraising activities were always part of Stewart`s thinking and when people  became interested in renting the space for weddings and parties,  Stewart tells the story of a professional wedding planner becoming distressed about what he was going to do with the ‘black holes’, referring to the viewing windows.  Stewart came to the rescue and designed and organized the production of window coverings that could be put up and taken down in minutes.

    What others say about Stewart:

    “Stewart wasn’t a competitive curler, but he enjoyed the camaraderie and the club social events.  He and his friends would cook the meat for one of the events every year.  Their oven was an old remodeled dishwasher.  They served up a fantastic meal.  At the end of the evening, they would wrap up the leftover beef and hand out packages of beef as door prizes.  It was great.”

    “With Stewart in charge...believe me, it will happen.”

    Activities Outside of Curling:

    Stewart is an inventor and enjoys creating solutions to household problems.  Stewart can make your kitchen into a user-friendly dream...adding a few moving parts to cupboards...garbage bags can open, saran and foil can be separated, and flour can be at your fingertips.

    Stewart’s Advice: “Help everyone feel welcome, and want to return.”

    Ken Pesket

    Nominated by: Murray Pearson

    Inducted April 2009 

    Information

    Ken and his wife Jackie wanted to curl; it was their passion.  Ken was responsible for securing and organizing the work crews required to build the Huntley Curling Club and in 1980, he helped lay the concrete foundation for the club. Jackie made sandwiches and coffee, and she kept the crews working.   

    Until 2008, Ken actively curled in the mixed and men’s leagues, locally and provincially.  Ken broke his leg in 2004, but it was when he broke his second leg in 2008 that his curling days came to an end.

    In his own words:

    The reason I love curling so much is that it is an intriguing mental game, there is so much to think about.  Curling is also highly competitive.  I like that.

    Curling is the thread that ties the community together...we had a house fire and lost everything.  It was the members of the curling community that helped us through that difficult time...they were unbelievable. 

    At the club, I became known for my Stetson...I always curled wearing my Stetson.  Over the years, I collected pins from various rinks and bonspiels. These pins decorated my hat... this hat is very special to me.”

    Off the ice:

    Ken and Jackie were heavily involved in the Scottish tours.  In 1988 and 1992, they help host Scotland’s Lord Elgin teams and in 1990 and 1998, they were on the team that represented the Huntley Curling Club in Scotland against the Scottish teams.  Ken speaks fondly of the time spent with Lord Elgin and Lady Victoria...and the Stetson.

    Ken spent many hours teaching beginners and novice curlers the intricacies of the game.  He willingly helped anyone with their delivery and took pride in teaching the newcomers the art of falling. 

    During special club events, Ken enjoyed his time helping out in the kitchen.

    What others say about Ken:

    “Ken curled with me for quite a few years, and we had our share of success.  He was always very serious and competitive...a great asset to the team.”

    “Ken enjoyed a good party...we had some wonderful times."

    Activities Outside of Curling:

    Ken enjoys an active lifestyle, and golfing is one of his favourite pastimes.

    Ken’s Advice:  “Get involved.”

  • Jill Rivington

    Jill Rivington

    Nominated by: Murray Pearson

    Inducted 12 April 2014

    Information

    In 1998, the HCC needed someone to take the lead in developing a curling development program for youth. Jill had started curling in 1988 and had taken the NCCP Level 1 Coaching Course to learn more about the technical aspect of curling to help her improve her game and that of her own kids. Her enthusiasm was noted, and she was asked to assume a leadership role for youth curling development.

    The first year, she and another parent worked with 8 children, growing to 12 and 20 kids in subsequent years, requiring her to attract more volunteers/instructors. As part of her commitment to excellence, she insisted that volunteers take the necessary training to become certified coaches who could deliver a quality program. She convinced HCC Board members to fund this training, and worked with her team to oversee the coach training and youth program to ensure every child received the same instruction.

    As they say, the rest is history! Under her leadership, she developed a strong team of certified coaches and a Little Rock, U-18 (Bantam), and U-21 (Junior) curling program that has delivered beyond expectations. Her 'graduates' have excelled at Zones, Regions and many have made it to Provincial and Canadian championships. Attached is a listing of her girls 'graduates' and their accomplishments. There have been many boys ' graduates' as well, many making their way to OFSAA, Provincial, and National Championships. Since 1999, she has personally coached many Little Rock, School, Bantam Girls, Bantam Mixed and Junior Girls Teams, coaching at least one team per year, and lots of times, two teams. Last year she had over 100 youth members between the Sunday Program and Evening Student Leagues.

    As is her style, Jill is quick to point out that the success of the program turned on having a very dedicated group of parents and enthusiastic, talented youth who succeeded, mainly because of HCC's consistent, high-quality teaching program. She relied heavily on parents such as Dave & Lidia Cormier, Ross & Laurie Cotten, and Steve Au, and when their kids graduated ,she has been able to attract more dedicated instructors such as Bill Vance, Kurt Hahn, Donnie Campbell, and the Lyon-Hatcher family. She and her team often put in 400+ hours a year with Sunday instruction time and coaching competitive teams. As her program grew, it attracted competitive kids to our club from across the Region.

    Jill was also instrumental in getting a Trillium Grant to buy Lite Rocks for the Little Rock program. The grant covered only part of the cost, so she and her team ran fundraising bonspiels and raffles, succeeding in raising enough money to cover the entire $12,000 cost. Her team also took over running a Junior Spiel, never missing a year since 1995. 

    Jill's overall philosophy has been to be respectful, accountable, and sportsmanlike, to give kids a good work ethic, a sound technical base and a love for the game, all delivered in a positive manner - never talking about winning or losing, but about shots, relaxing, and enjoying the moment - having some fun !

    Jill has spent many hours learning and developing her own skills set. She has completed NCCP level 1&2 training and should complete her final level 3 NCCP training soon, which will make her one of the finest coaches in Ottawa. The Youth Program we now enjoy at HCC is a direct result of her dedication and leadership. Thank you and congratulations on a job well done Jill!

    Lynn Sabourin

    Inducted 12 April 2011

    Nominated by: Murray Pearson

    Information

    Lynn Sabourin was an early and strong supporter of the Club. She was a member of the original Founders Sponsors who contributed money to get the operation off the ground, and time - countless hours of service to the Club.  She was the mainstay of the kitchen committee for many years, running the kitchen for bonspiels, and anchoring the Carp Fair breakfast and lunch details.  I think she lived at the Club while the Fair was on! 

    She played an influential role in starting up an early ladies league and Friday night league, curling of course, but demonstrating leadership and patience as she helped develop curling skills in new and existing members.  You can imagine that when the Club started, there were not many experienced curlers to take the lead in training, and while Lynn was never a formal OCA trained instructor, she never hesitated to give generously of her time to work with anyone who asked for help. 

    Symbolic of her passion for excellence and desire to establish HCC as a bonefide curling club, she generously donated the Ray Sabourin trophy for the men's league. This trophy has morphed over the years into a symbol that now recognizes the Club Champion team, a fitting honour. 

    Quite frankly, I can think of no one more deserving of this special recognition than Lynn, and I know she would be deeply moved and honoured to receive this recognition.

    Locksley & Dixie Trenholm

    Nominated by: Murray Pearson

    Inducted 12 April 2014

    Information

    During the 70's, the rural community of Carp was growing, adding new housing developments and residents. Locksley and Dixie Trenholm saw the need to integrate new residents with members of the established families through sports, particularly youth, who could benefit from sports facilities that would grow the community. Locks and Dixie had been curling with a small group from Carp, supported by several local curling clubs, leading them to the idea of establishing a curling club in Carp that would serve to support community development.Locks sought the help of Keith Roe, an established community leader, to approach the Carp Fair Board, who were considering new buildings, to seek support for cooperation on Locks' idea for a future curling club. When the Fair Board asked ”How many people would be interested?”, Dixie took the initiative to organize a survey of Huntley Township residents, 150 of whom said they would join if one was built, with 55 willing to help make it happen.

    In June, 1978, Locks and Dixie called a meeting of the 55 volunteers to organize the HCC executive. In December, 1978, Locks succeeded in incorportating the Huntley Curling Club as the first step in seeking grants to fund the project. Locks Trenholm and Keith Roe co-chaired the first year. Locks continued as President for the second year. Locks applied for many grants and in February, 1980, the Huntley Curling Club received a Wintario grant of $132,280.93, matched by local fund raising. The Ottawa Valley Curling Association also helped finance building costs. Dixie served on the HCC executive for 5 years, in charge of publicity. Construction of the Huntley Curling Club started August, 1980 and Locks Trenholm threw the first rock at the Official Opening Ceremonies on February 28, 1981.

    But Locks and Dixie didn't stop there. Both were active curlers, always ready to help with club events, involved in bringing Curl Canada instruction to develop curling skill levels, and Dixie was the first skip at HCC to record an 8 ender, and to win HCC's first major bonspiel - the Stanley-Gauthier for curlers with less than 5 years experience.

    Locks was inducted into the Governor General’s Curling Club in 1993, promoted to Emeritus status in 2007, and served as president in 2003-04. The main focus of this Honorary Curling Club has been to recognize those who have made a significant contribution to curling, whether it be locally, provincially or nationally, not only as competitive curlers, but also as builders and administrators. Dixie too, continued her active role as Founding Chair of Publicity. She wrote weekly Curling columns for local newspapers, promoted the club at fundraising events and Carp Fair, and organized the Official Opening of HCC in February, 1981, as well as the 25th Anniversary celebration. She was instrumental in organizing the production of 4 HCC Cookbooks, represented Huntley Curling Club at two Friendship Tours of Scotland, and was on organizing teams at Scott Tournament of Hearts and 2 Labatt Briers.

    Both Locks and Dixie demonstrated vision and perseverance in their quest, building a strong team of volunteers, leading by example to make their dream come true. Their vision, dedication and hard work is the reason HCC members and the community now enjoy the many benefits of a world class curling club. The Huntley Curling Club owes these founding members a huge debt of gratitude for their vision and passion in making a dream come true. Congratulations on a job well done!

    Inducted on May 16, 2017                        Nominated by:  Murray Pearson

    INTRODUCTION

     

    Les and Judith Waddell have been long time contributors and Founding Members of this Club, attending the very first meeting held in the Carp Community Hall where HCC was borne.

    Judith and Les contributed in many ways to HCC. For example:

    - Judith served on the Board, contributing 2 years each on Membership and Kitchen, as Vice president, as President and finally as Past President 

    - Les worked on the Ice Team for 5 years, helping make and maintain our ice and assisted with various events, including teaching Little Rocks along with Judith. 

    - Judith served as HCC's LCA (Ladies Curling Association) and OVCA representative for 5 years, attending zone and OCA meetings around the province, and as HCC's Zone representative to the OCA for 8 years, helping to organize OCA events

    - while on the Board, Judith was instrumental in securing Trillium Grants for the roof replacement and Little Rocks stones

    - they both helped organize the 25th Anniversary events and party, several mixed and ladies skips events and the Past President's bonspiel

    - she and Les led and taught Little Rocks for 3 years in mid 80’s and both helped deliver the “Learn to Curl” program to beginners

    - Judith organized and managed the Wednesday Ladies and Monday Mixed curling leagues

    - she introduced a rating system to promote curling and advancement opportunities and organized and taught the “Smart Serve” program

    Les and Judith were both well known as goodwill ambassadors for HCC.  Both curled in OCA Intermediate and Senior playdowns, winning Zones and Regionals. Les took many teams to the City of Ottawa spiel, and Judith the same to the Crystal Pebble Bonspiel (Judith's name is on three trophies). They played in several OVCA and other mixed bonspiels in the Ottawa area, making many new friends (Les is the consummate story teller - it's hard not to like the guy!)

    Notably, both Les and Judith were very proud to invite Huntley members to competitions and friendly bonspiels. Looking back, they feel that apart from their significant and long-serving contributions to the Club, being ambassadors for the club was their greatest achievement and contribution.  We all learned from their ongoing demonstration of team play and sportsmanship, and I am proud to nominate them as Honourary Members - an honour well deserved!

    Inducted on May 16, 2017                           Nominated by:  May Given

    INFORMATION

    Gord and Lorraine Wright have been members of HCC for more than twenty five years, during which time they contributed significantly to the success and growth of our club.  Gord served as a Club board member in the early 1990’s.

    When the Board asked for volunteers to organize day leagues to make better use of daytime curling opportunities and attract new members, they both got involved and were instrumental in establishing the Daytimers league. Gord also started the "Stick League" on Friday mornings and continues to this day as league convenor.  Through his involvement and work to train members on use of the stick, he has contributed to the enjoyment of many members who might otherwise have given up the Roarin' Game.  

    Gord has curled in the Ottawa Valley Senior Men’s Competitive League since it was formed, and continues to serve on the management team as score keeper and statistician for the 36 teams.

    Not to be outdone, Lorraine figured that if the men could have such a league the ladies should have one too.  Through her leadership the Ladies Valley League evolved that continues to this day.  The original trophy donated by them is still within our Club.  

    As an offshoot of daytime curling, Gord and Lorraine ran a 222 Bonspiel for several years (2 men and 2 ladies whose combined ages must total 222 years).  They called their bonspiel the White Elephant Bonspiel because the prizes were items donated by the Daytimers (white elephants).  This was a very popular event that attracted teams from many other clubs and raised a significant amount of money for our Club over several years.

    In 1998 they ably represented our Club when they took part in an exchange of curlers to Scotland.  They participated on the various committees planning the itinerary, gift selections and presentations.  They were part of a Curlers Court in the Village Ha’O’Dunlop on October 31, 1998 and qualified as a bonafide Canadian curler. Scotch drinking was introduced to Gord and many a “wee dram” was enjoyed.  Don't ask him about his burning shirt! 

    In 2002, they were part of a Tour Committee representing the Huntley Curling Club to reciprocate a curling tour of 24 curlers from Scotland.  They established contacts and scheduled games within several Valley Clubs ie, Smiths Falls, Carleton Place, Arnprior, Renfrew and Huntley.

    Both have always been willing volunteers at the Club, contributing their time and effort in the bar, the kitchen and at the Carp fair, where they helped with F&B duties as well as taking a turn on our booth to promote our Club..

    Their friendliness and good sportsmanship make them very good ambassadors for the Club, as witnessed by how well known and respected they both are in curling clubs in the Valley. They are worthy candidates for this Award, and I recommend they be so honoured at our closing banquet.
