Meanwhile, back in Ontario

Ontario held its Dominion Provincial Championship over three days last week, with Ottawa's Bruce Cameron in first place at 3-0 and Toronto's Chris Rees, Ilderton's Don Bell and Bradford's Ken Gregory each at 1-2.

Rees, perpetual Ontario champion, beat Bell 9-3 in the semi-final and Gregory beat Cameron, taking two with hammer in the 8th to win 6-5.

That set up a Rees/Gregory final, with Ken Gregory's rink of Colinda Joseph at lead, Katie Paialunga at 2nd and Frank Cannarellla at 3rd running out 7-4 winners in seven ends.

Teams and line scores are available on the OCA website, and a comprehensive article by Doug Graham of the Whig-Standard can be read here.

With Chris Rees not making the 2009 Nationals, it will leave Prince George's Whitney Warren and Ontario's Frank Cannarella as the only players to compete in every multi-province National Championship.

I doubt anyone will stay with BC, if Jim gets any support at all. He is now starting to get a feel for the strengths and weaknesses of this game, and he is only going to get better himself.

Frank Cannarella has been to each national championship as part of the Rees rink and now part of the Gregory rink.

Best of luck to team Ontario. Let's show Canada that the West doesn't have the market cornered on this sport!
