Winnipeg Free Press (Newspaper) - December 24, 1970, Winnipeg, ManitobaWinnipeg Mil press thursday Decilier 24, 1970 23 Rocky Road lies ahead of schoolboys Bill Mowat Tec voc skip Al Mccarrol deserts Penston it strikes by John Down it would Only be appropriate in the Centennial year i hat the Manitoba Schoolboy by Mapiel should go Down in history As the toughest com petition Ever iced. There is every indication it will. Of the 2so rinks entered in the dec. 29 affair four Are defending event champions another is the 1970 provincial finalist and one four some has harnessed the ser vices of one of the Manitoba champions. There Are also a Good number of returnees eager to improve on past perform ances in the five event Spiel that moves into the Hacks at . Saturday. For the time being How Ever there Are 10 rinks most. Likely to succeed. No. Wilson of min Nedosa is Back with the same lineup that took him to the provincial final last year. The redheaded skip who is sup ported by. The Gwyer boys Brothers Bob and Brian and Cousin Jim is in his last year of eligibility and came close last year to going All the Way. No Shackel will attempt to uphold the Vincent Massey Banner Home of the j970 Brian pension championship Crew. Shackell proved to be a Tough customer last year winning the Pepsi event and with the addition of Al Mcgarrow a member of the pension rink he won t be far out this week. No. Nye of bran Don May have a change or two on the front end but he has the experience defend ing free press event titlist and a Strong showing in the provincial test. Add to this some solid support from dad Ralph Nye and Murray could shake up the major Merchan Dise again. No. Lazar has been around Schoolboy Curling for so Long now thai his entry is almost taken for granted. Neil will be going All out to have the River East colors hoisted at the top because alas Neil is becoming of age. No. Wood Iii. A famous family name in Mani Toba Curling and naturally no Slouch on the icy tracks. Howie and two Brothers not to mention yet another two skips named Wood will be Lough to Beal and Howie should be the toughest of them All. He is skipping a Kelvin rink. No. Jamieson was perhaps lacking experience last year when he won the Dan Davidson event and lost out in provincial play Downs. But it should be Dif Ferent this year because Gra Ham and his Ham Iota front end Are one Long Curling season older. No. Mctavish is another of the up and coming graduates from the youth corps. Representing a familiar name in Curling Johnny will be trying for twice As much this time. He won the second event Tribune with his Miles Mclntyre squad in 1969 and no doubt he has the major event in mind free press. No. Barclay and his Souris brigade produced the winning est score last year a 31 -1 Triumph and that alone helps his chances so Long As he reminds opposing skips of that game and not of his elimination from the Spiel. No. Mowat of Tec voc has been a perennial con tender Over several years but has never been Able to swing the big game his Way. He too. Like Lazar is Long overdue and ready to Mold past experiences into winning ways. No. Rasmussen an athlete of ability in whatever sport he selects is returning with revenge in mind. Ras Mussen and his Sisler sup p o r t e r s gained valuable knowledge last year on a Road that took them As far As provincial play Downs. Besides the merchandise four provincial playoff spots Are also at stake in the four Day Spiel. The finalist of the free press will automatically qualify while the finalists of the other four events will and Vance to a to rink straight knockout playoff for the two the big in could conceivably be involved in the special playoffs but school boy Curling always has its dark horses. And this year there arc names like Lerner Braun Stein Ross Ledyard Wolowich Parkes Mcdonald Mann Taylor Devlin and Richard son to mention a few that could upset As they say the Appl Ecart. Headquarters will be Al the civic Caley. The yuletide season brings cheer in More ways than one and from appearances of today s mail the bowlers must be in full swing. This allows me the Opportunity to clean up All the backlog which 1 am Happy to do. Only one Bowling tourney on Lap As far As 1 know and that is on boxing Day a i the Empress lanes. Of course you remember that there will be Handicap singles for lad ies and scratch singles also beginning at 3 . You Are also reminded that the event needs storekeepers.

Scientifically yet the 1970-71 Curling season will go Down in the annals of the Manitoba Curling association As one of the heaviest.

As the first Lush of the season draws to a close after four months of warm up exercises Wilh the 40-Pound pieces of artillery 1 can t help wonder How the competitive fraternity is going to stand the remaining Pace. The schedule beginning Jan. 1, 1971, is packed with so Many Bonspiel play Downs and fun affairs that Mca Secretary Alex Williamson needed a Small billboard sized poster in list what can be termed the More glowing events.
