We are pleased to again represent the Oakville Curling Club & Zone 8 at 'The Ontarios'! Our 2nd, Michael Skafel leads our team with a record setting 8th consecutive GM appearance. WOW! Also, Don Moseley tossed winning skip rocks in 2019 ( Bob away on family affairs). Our team will enjoy the hard training needed to face the opportunity and challenge of winning a 3rd consecutive GM's Championship and fourth G-Masters Banner overall! This year Team Oakville Z*8 is a 5 person team due to family historical celebrations w some date conflicts. Note: We can only take 4 players to the provincial finals to be held March 18-20, 2020.

Another great senior bonspiel came to a close on Friday December 6 with team Lawton on top again this year. Many thanks to outgoing organizer Mark Partington and his team, and a special mention to Bill Findlay, 100, who was there to present the trophy. Also many thanks to Rob Melhuish who filled in at vice for our final game. We had fun playing a mix of outside and Oakville teams.
