A year after winning the Nova Scotia Men’s Master Curling Championship another team out of the Middleton Curling Club capped the Nova Scotia Mixed Curling Championship. Hosted by the Middleton Curling Club, the first rock at the official opening of the Nova Scotia Lotta Truck Senior Mixed Curling Championship was delivered by Club Past-President Lawrence Aldred. Little did Aldred or anyone else realize what harbinger this was to be in less than a week!
Six days into the Tournament, with the other eighteen teams eliminated, the Championship game featured the host Middleton Rink versus their arch-rivals from Greenwood. The Middleton Rink was skipped by none other than Lawrence Aldred, capably joined by Marie Phinney Mate, Doug McKeil Second, and Diane Martell Lead.
With a boisterous standing room only crowd in attendance, at the end of the eighth end it was all tied up at 4 all. Middleton scored two in the ninth end to take a 6-4 lead coming home. With the Middleton Rink counting but with two of his own rocks in the rings, the Greenwood Skip attempted a double take-out but only succeeded in removing one, resulting in a savoury 6-5 Middleton victory.
The Sports Heritage Wall of Fame is honored to induct the Middleton Rink of Lawrence Aldred, Marie Phinney, Doug McKeil and Diane Martell, the Nova Scotia Senior Mixed Curling Champions – 1995.
