About the Legends of Curling Honour Roll Committee
Since the committee’s formation in 2004, the CURLSASK Legends of Curling Honour Roll has recognized the best in Saskatchewan’s curling history. The Legends Committee, a volunteer group of Past Presidents of the Saskatchewan Curling Association (SCA) and Saskatchewan Ladies Curling Association (SLCA), meet twice a year to determine the award recognitions and helps to coordinate the CURLSASK Annual Gala Awards Evening.
CURLSASK would like to thank the Legends of Curling Committee of Jerry Shoemaker, Brian Hill, Liane McLean, Del Jones and Barry Whitehouse for their work over the past year and look forward to continuing to promote Award recognitions for the outstanding accomplishments of club volunteers and athletes alike in the years to come.
