FTLComm - Tisdale - January 9, 1999

Sixteen teams from around Saskatchewan took to the ice at the RecPlex Friday afternoon it the Northern Junior Men's provincial curling championship. From Yorkton to Regina, Saskatoon, Battleford, Prince Albert and Rosetown the teams have been battling away until the competition wraps up on Monday.

A pair of senior citizens who had spent some time watching the competition
remarked that they had seen
some good curling but so many of the games were very one sided. No doubt the long road to becoming an accomplished competitive curler has to begin at this level and emotions and stress that is so much a part of the game contribute to the uneven play.

As you can see there have been good sized crowds out to see the play including a lot of moms and dads who are there to support their players.

To give you a feel for the extent of this competition below is a listing of the teams and their locations. Players are listed in order of skip, third, second and lead.
