But between now and then, he will probably give considerable thought to one of the strangest weeks he has spent at the game since he became a competitive curler almost 20 years ago. Duguid, lead Woody Wood, second Jim Pettapiece and third Rod Hunter, all from Winnipeg's Granite Club, won the Canadian curling championship for the second-straight year .Saturday. they did it by defeating Bill Tetley, the Northern Ontario representative from Thunder Bay, 11-6 in the second game of a three-rink, two-game playoff Saturday-the first three-way playoff for the Macdonald's Brier trophy since 1962. The victory by Duguid marked the 18th Lime Manitoba representatives have won the trophy since 1927. By the same token, Duguid's victory was only the sixth time the same skip had won the national title two years running. For awhile it appeared Tetley would go all the way to give Northern Ontario its first championship since 1960. He led 2-0 after three ends as he counted singles in the first and third. But Duguid came back with two in the fourth end to tie the game. The Manitoba skip went aliead 3-2 in the fifth when he stole the end, only to have Northern Ontario count two in the sixth. But Duguid then broke the game wide open with a three-ender in the seventh. Northern Ontario got its other points in the eighth and 10th ends while the Manitoba skip continued to roll with another three-ender in the ninth and two more in the 11th. "That was the turning point," Duguid said, referring to his seventh-end three-count. "Once you're ahead, it's not too hard to hit the other rocks, but once you're behind, its hard to bury them." Duguid, a 35-year-old assistant marketing manager, was one of several skips who complained about the stones used during the championship. "The way the rocks were acting, it was hard to make them work properly," Duguid said. Saskatchewan's Bob Pickering from Avonlea, whose rink was third in the three-way playoff and who was dropped when he lost the morning semi-final by a 10-9 decision to Tetley, was more specific. After he was eliminated, Pickering had some stones brought in from a local club to test against the rocks being used in the championship. After the test, Pickering said there was a tremendous difference between the club stones and the reconditioned ones he Thunder Bay Hurricanes 4 Man* 5 Marrs leads best-of-seven final 8-1 Manitoba Junior Wast Klldonan 3 St. Boniface t St. Boniface leads best - of  seven quarter-finals 3-1 Winnipeg 7 St. James 4 St. James leads best-of-seven quarter-final 3-� Selkirk 4 Portage la Prairie 4 Selkirk leads best-of-seven quarterfinal 3-1 Saskatchewan Junior Humboldt 4 Saskatoon 3 Saskatoon leads best-of-seven semi. final 3-2 Weyburn 7 Melville 1 Weyburn leads best-of-seven �em|. final 3-2 British Columbia Junior Kamloops 3 Chilllwack 1 Vancouver 8 Penticton 7 Western college British Columbia 7 Manitoba 4 B.C. wins best-of-threa final 2-0 SATURDAY National Montreal 8 Los Angeles 1 Toronto 2 Chlcaao 2 New York 2 Detroit 2 Rt-sion 6 Pittsburgh 3 Minnesota 3 Vancouver 1 California 4 Philadelphia 4 American Cleveland 3 Horshey 1 Springfield 5 Baltimore 2 Western Portland 4 Salt Lake 2 San Diego 5 Phoenix 3 Eastern New Haven 4 Clinton 4 Long Island 5 New Jersey 3 Jrhnston 5 Syracuse 2 Charlotte 13 Jacksonville 1 Central Dallas 8 Amarillo 3 T'llsa 5 Fort Worth 4 Kansas City 7 Oklahoma 1 InlTnation^l Dayton 1 Port Huron 0 Des Moines ?.

"There was a difference like day and night between the rocks," Pickering said. "The club rocks pulled normally on this ice. The Brier rocks went down the ice like a snake." Earlier in the competition, Pickering and Kevin Smale of British C o 1 u m b i a's Prince George rink, complained that the ice was unsatisfactory and stones were reacting in a strange fashion. However, a curling official said Wedmesday the claim of poor ice conditions was not valid, and that more than likely the reconditioned stones were causing the snaking movements from hack to house. At its annual meeting Wednesday the CCA voted to employ a permanent ice-maker starting with the 19/2 competition at Edmonton. 30,000 MILE WRITTEN GUARANTEE ON SUPREME 150 TIRES Full 4 ply - Polyester Cord 8.25x14 or 8.25x15 33" Other sizes priced comparably ELRICH TIRE LTD.
