Looking for an Oil Boom in Sarnia
After finishing with a 1-3 record in the season opening Stu Sells Oakville Tankard, and then a month and a half away from the competitive circuit, we return to action this week at the 3rd annual Huron ReproGraphics Oil Heritage Classic in Sarnia, Ontario. This is easily the best ‘new’ event on the Ontario Curling Tour, as the ice conditions and hospitality at the Sarnia Golf & Curling Club are on-par with the best in the country. With another strong field that features teams like Balsdon, McCormick, Frans, Rumfeldt, Prebble and more, we are looking forward to a stern test in our return to the ice.
This event is also near and dear to our hearts as it is run by original Game of Stones member, Ian Parker. This all-around beauty runs a great event with strong club and sponsor support, and even finds time to play in the bonspiel with a strong rink that this year features Jason Young (1993 World Junior Champion) and Viktor Kjell (2012 World Champion – Sweden)! We have no doubt that the 2014 edition will only continue to cement this event as a must-stop on Tour.
