UPDATE:   Winner of the Jersey is ........ Emrys Moffette.    Congratulation!

The Results Are In!

Thanks to all participants. We got awesome responses from all of you.

First of all I'd like to thank Lisa, Joanne, Emma and Rachel along with Pacific Exploration & Production for supporting youth curling development in Ottawa.  We must strive to make better, more complete athletes and continue to improve our sport.  We encourage all curlers to continue to set personal goals and not to be afraid to invest time in practices and training.  Curling camps are fun, educational and play an important role in developing better curlers.

We'd also like to say thank you to our panel of 4 judges who selected the 10 winners.  The panel was made up of 4 directors from the 2017 Ottawa Roar of the Rings committee.  Their choices were based solely on answers provided to the 3 curling development questions in the application.  All papplicant names were removed during the review and selection process.  Our judges provided comments highlighting what stood out for them as they made their choices.

Team Homan has also selected a lucky participant who will win a autographed Team Homan jersey.  Winner will be announced by them after this weekend’s Canada Cup competition.
