25 Years Ago
Curling Club celebrates 25 years: The Shawville Community Bonspiel is being played with a touch of nostalgia this year. January 1993 marks 25 years since the Shawville Curling Rink was built.
The original construction committee was at the Shawville Curling Club’s Bonspiel opening which consisted of Doug McLean, Watt Taylor, Don Dods, Bill Hanna, Bill Orr and René Latreille.
Doug McLean was chairman of the building committee 25 years ago.
He spoke fondly of the days when the Curling Club decided it needed an indoor facility.
“The outdoor rink was built in the 1920s,” he said. “The ice was not the best, on number two ice, the rock would take a curve over a bump, then another and finally the rock would end up on the right side of the house.”
