The annual gathering of the Lefthanders' clan was April 5th - 8th this year.
Over 180 Lefties and Leftie Wannabes gathered together for the 45th Men's and 39th Women's Lefthanders World Curling Championship. Participants from all over Scotland, Canada, and the US participated for a weekend of competition and comradery.
New World Champions were crowned on the weekend with Terry Golphin from Port Perry CC and his team of Rob Thompson, Martin Buschbeck, and Larry de Brouwer winning the Men's event and Ruth Alexander and her team of Miolyka Steele, Dana Schoales, and Sue Aubin winning the Women's event from the Highland CC.
The Lefthanders' event is a proud supporter of the Special Olympics Curling here at the OCC and they raised $5,430. for the SO athletes. A truly worthy cause!
Special thanks to all the OCC staff and the Leftie volunteers that made this event such a great success!
