1968 Don Wilson Curling Rink

CANADIAN SENIOR MENS CURLING CHAMPIONS

Don Wilson (skip), Carson Tufts (third), Sid Buckwold (Mayor of Saskatoon), Ivan McMillan (second), Rueben Lowe (lead).

March 1968 was a time to remember for Don Wilson's curling team. Playing alongside Carson Tufts, Ivan McMillan, and Rueben Lowe, Don's Granite club reps went through the Saskatchewan and Canadian senior men's playdowns without a loss. In Moose Jaw for the provincial final, Wilson won three games to win the " A" side then beat Tony Junker of the Regina Callie 7-2 to earn the trip to Edmonton for the nationals.

The competition started on March 25th and five days later, Wilson's foursome had 10 wins no losses to win the championship and claim the Seagram Stone Trophy. Along the play off trail Wilson's foursome lost one game. Wilson and his quartet were inducted into the Saskatoon Sports Hail of Fame in 1989.

We hope that you have enjoyed reading about some of Saskatchewan's sports heroes.

If you have a photograph of someone or a team listed in Prairie Gold that we do not have a photo for and are willing to donate it, please contact us.

Due to their nature and sometimes ambiguous origin the photographs seen here and those on file at the Local History Room are continuously being updated with new information. Some of this information comes from dedicated research done by Local History staff. However some of the biggest 'breaks' have come from the public... Those that remember the people, places and events in the photo are our biggest informational resource and we ask that if you have any information about the photos to contact the Local History Room at lhstaff@saskatoonlibrary.ca or phone (306) 975-7578.

Come and visit the Local History Room the next time you are at the Frances Morrison Library.

Thank you.
