YOUR OPINION PLEASE re PAYMENTS
I thought that you might be interested in these photos..The one with the
men was taken in 1929 having received a Burnstein trophy.(??).One of the men is my Grandfather Victor Mann
,, the other is Alex Darou.. the other two I don't know
a little background----- When I retired in 2002 , I began curling with the afternoon.ladies
and was placed on a team with others that I didn't know ,, including Ruth Crispell who had just retired and moved
back to the Soo from southern Ontario .Ruth and I struck up a friendship .Sometime during the winter I was at her house
and noticed this old photo on the wall..I found out that Alex Darou was her Grandfather and that our Grandfathers had
curled together..Here it was many years later with their grandaughters being randomly placed
together on the same curling team..
This year Ruth's cousin, Vivian Shuttleworth joined our team with Ann Paradis
as our skip..The second photo was taken this past January at our curling club during the ladies bonspeil..The
theme was curling fashions through the ages..WE decided to dress up as our grandfathers and pose in the same positions.
