What an amazing week it was at the Evergreen Centre in Nipawin as it was host to 192 young curlers from across the province! A lot of fun, laughs and good times were had by the campers working to improve their curling game with some of the best instructors from around the province as well as guest instructors from around the country! Thank you to all campers, parents, staff, and other helping hands around the town of Nipawin that made the 31st Annual Prairieland Curling Camp a success. Another thank you to New Holland as they stepped in as the new title sponsor for the camp this summer, which simply could not have been possible without their generosity and support along the way! Let us take a look at this years award winners:
Junior Star Awards: The Junior Star Awards were handed out to one individual in each coloured group that demonstrated great leadership, skill, and spirit to all members of their group throughout the week.
New Holland Camp MVP: The instructors for each colour group gather and select one individual as the camp Most Valuable Participant for each camp.
Laine Peters Award & Honourbale Mentions: The Laine Peters Award required campers to submit applications based on their thoughts and beliefs towards the game of curling within teamwork, sportsmanship, community involvement and leadership skills. Laine donated $250 to two campers (one per camp) to reimburse a portion of the tuition to attend the 2017 New Holland Prairieland Curling Camp! Thank you for your donation Laine!
Past Presidents Awards: The Past Presidents of CURLSASK donate money to one lucky curler each camp that contribute to the tuition fee for this years camp!
CURLSASK Staff Award: Each year, the camp staff contribute money for each camp that assist in the tuition cost for one lucky camper each camp! Thank you to all the staff for your donations!
