Minnesota rinks move on to quarterfinals at Mixed Doubles Championship in Bismarck
(BISMARCK, N.D.) - There will be a new team wearing USA gear at the upcoming World Mixed Doubles Championship as two Minnesota rinks survived the quarterfinals this morning at the 2013 USA Curling Mixed Doubles National Championship at the Capital Curling Club.
St. Paul Curling Club teammates Tim Doherty (St. Paul, Minn.) and Carol Strojny (Mendota Heights, Minn.) defeated the defending champions Brady and Cristin Clark of Washington, 8-5, to move on to the semifinals.
Todd Birr's team with Granite member Greg Romaniuk as well as Tom O'Connor and Kevin Birr won the the Seattle Cash Spiel Thanksgiving weekend. Brady Clark, Sean Beighton, Darren Lehto, and Steve Lundeen were the runners-up.
Thanks to Betty Kozai and company for preparing food. Thanks to Chris Rimple for sponsoring the entry of two Junior teams. And congratulations to Brady Clark for pulling off yet another successful cash spiel.
Team Johnson (Mark Johnson - skip, Jason Larway - third, Joel Larway - second and Chris Rimple plays lead) went undefeated in the Wainright Roaming Buffalo Classic with a total purse of $55,000.
On Saturday, November 17th GCC will be hosting a Level I and II officiating clinic to train new (and refresh current) officials on everything you need to know to officiate at a USCA curling event. This is also a great opportunity for newer curlers to help the club out, and to learn the ins-and-outs of the rules of curling. We really will be needing timers for many of the events coming up, it's fun and you get the best seats in the house to watch the games.
Brady Clark, Sean Beighton, Darren Lehto, and Steve Lundeen made it into the money round of the Vancouver Island Shootout. After posting a 3-0 record in the qualifying round, they lost the semifinal in an extra end.
