Team Ryan qualified in their fourth consecutive MCT event this past weekend, qualifying through the “A” side at the Atkins Curling Supplies Classic.
In the Quarter, the team lost a tight, extra end, last rock battle against Team Lott.
Team Ryan would like to thank Rob Atkins for sponsoring the bonspiel, and for sponsoring our team. Without support from people like Rob, curlers would still be looking for jam pails and waiting for rivers to freeze.
Next up is the Junior Men’s Fall Berth Bonspiel in Morris. This will be our first Junior Men’s event of the year. And our most important test to date because two Provincial spots are up for grabs.
Breaker breaker good buddy. Looks like we’ve got ourselves a convoy.
In long distance trucking, three semi’s count as a convoy. And for the third week in a row, Team Ryan qualified and made it to the semi-finals.
At the Man Curl Classic this week, Team Ryan qualified through the “B” side with four wins against one loss. Ryan came out on top in a tight contest in the Quarter vs Team Dennis Bohn, but lost an even tighter, extra end contest to twin David Bohn in the semi.
Team Ryan is now looking toward the Atkins Classic next week. Atkins Curling Supplies is one of the team’s sponsors, and we are thrilled to play in a sponsors event.
No, but a really good weekend all the same, qualifying two weeks in a row.
Team Ryan rode the power of the hammer this weekend, going undefeated in their Pool, winning each game with hammer in two extra end games, and scoring two in their third at the KKP Classic held at the Fort Rouge CC.
The semi, vs Team Dennis Bohn, was a close one, but a quiet raise take-out for two by Bohn in the 7th end, put the game out of reach.
Next week, the MCT Classic at the Thistle. Three semi’s in a row are a charm.
For the third year in a row, Team Ryan qualified at the MCT Mother Club Fall Classic, held at the Granite in Winnipeg.
A convincing 3 – 1 record in their Pool was followed by a somewhat sloppy Quarter-final 5 – 4 win vs Team Muntain.
In the semi, their opponent, Team Simmons, made no mistake and earned a berth in the Final with a comfortable 6 – 1 win over Team Ryan.
All in all though, Team Ryan had much to celebrate, and are looking forward to next week’s KKP Classic at the Fort Rouge.
Team Ryan stepped onto the 2017/18 ice at the Spider Performance Icebreaker spiel held Aug 25 – 27 at the Granite in Winnipeg.
However, a comeback win in their first game was followed by two close losses and an early exit, back to fairways and greens.
Next up, the Mother Club Classic being held Sept 21 – 24 at the Granite. The team has qualified in this event the previous two years and they are looking forward to their usual strong September push.
A fabulous week of exceptional curling in Victoria saw Team Manitoba fall in the tie-breaker game vs Team Ontario. Tied without in the extra, Ryan’s draw failed to catch the curl, leaving Ontario victorious. Ontario made the final but fell to Team B.C. as the eventual national champs.
Thanks again to our sponsors, fans, parents and well wishers.
Next up, Team Ryan starts their run at a provincial Men’s championship at the Viterra beginning February 7th in Portage la Prairie.
Team Ryan won a hard fought 10 end victory against Team New Brunswick Tuesday night to finish the preliminary round undefeated at 6-0 in their Pool, and advance to the Championship round.
They will play a four game set against the qualifiers from the second pool, with the top three of eight teams advancing to the playoffs.
The team is thrilled to have carried the Buffalo this far, and are looking forward to representing Manitoba the rest of the way.

Barely eighteen hours after winning the Province in Juniors, Team Ryan got back on the ice to compete in the Winnipeg Regionals for a berth into the Viterra Men’s Curling Championship. Seems like there was plenty of gas left in the tank, as they won all three games on January 7th and qualified for one of the “A” side berths.
The Viterra Championship will be held Feb 8 – 12 in Portage la Prairie. This will be Team Ryan’s first experience attempting to win the provincial men’s title.
JT, Jacques, Graham, and Brendan finished their Provincial run with a thrilling 10 end victory against a very tough Team Calvert in the 2017 Canola Growers Provincial Junior Men’s Curling Championships on January 6th.
A 30 minute YouTube Video of the final can be seen at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_6n5v_uGLg
The boys are proud to be wearing the Buffalo and are excited to be representing Manitoba at the Canadian Junior Men’s Curling Championship, Jan 21-29 in Victoria, B.C.
A solid performance in their four games this weekend, except for the rare miss at the wrong time, led to Team Ryan failing to qualify in this weekend’s MCT event.
On an up note, the team’s journey continues in Dauphin next weekend where Team Ryan has qualified for the MCT Tour Championship.
Following the Christmas break, it will be on to the Canola Provincial Junior Championship.
