Bringing the Banner Home to the Pembroke Curling Centre

In 1963 the Pembroke Curling Club team of Keith Scanes, Jim Bryson, Hamor Markus and Frank Nighbor won the Provincial Colts Championship. As a result the team was presented an Ontario Curling Association banner which was hung in the club. In 1968 the Pembroke Curling club caught fire and burned and the banner was destroyed. A few years ago we inquired if the banner could be replaced and were told it could. The cost would be about $500. No action was taken to do this. At this year's AGM this item was again discussed and it was decided to look into this again. I contacted Stephen Chenier @ CurlON and received word that they would replace the banner for FREE!! We hope to have a presentation at the PCC once we receive the banner. If you have information about these four players & would like to share it with us please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Pembroke Curling Centre would like to thank the Alice & Fraser Minor Sports Association for their very generous donation of $1000.
