2016 Champions Declared

After a great weekend of fun, camaraderie and competition the NOFFCA has declared a new champion.

The rink from Oliver Paipoonge Fire Department, led by skip Dale Dubinsky defeated the Guy Langlais rink from Dryden in the final. The team is a father son affair with Mike Lamers and son Andrew on the front end, and Dale and son Rob at skip and third respectively.

Dubinsky came through the B side of the 15 team event to qualify for the playoff round then once again came through the B side to make the championship final. The team made few mistakes in the final winning after 6 ends. The team will now represent Northern Ontario at the Canadian Championships to be held in Truro, Nova Scotia to be held April 7-17.

Good luck boys! Enjoy and have fun.

The Dream is Over!

CFFCA Draw 10

posted Mar 26, 2015, 10:28 AM by Cam McMillan

A big win for the boys this morning over 1st place Manitoba leaves their destiny in their hands for the last round robin draw of the event. The win was decisive ending with a 8-1 score after only 6 ends of play. Nice!

It will it get easier though as the last game has them pitted against 8-1 Alberta and a win for them would lock in first place for the playoffs.

Good luck boys, go gettem!
