Defending Champ Wayne Ficek 1-1 after 1st day

Wayne Ficek
In a day of surprises and close battles Wayne Ficek defending NOCA Champ, came away with a 1 and 1 record. Carl Levesque was a bit of a surprise leading the pack with a perfect 2-0 record, these two will meet tomorrow in rivalry which dates back to the beginning of wheelchair curling in the NOCA. With Wayne losing his third to Manitoba it seems to have had somewhat of an impact on the team will Wayne be able to collect it and move on tomorrow which shall be a long day with three games to be played.

Next Draw of MediChair NOCA Provincials right here starting at 10:30am.

Quick question - With the Northern Ontario Playdowns being held this weekend, will the top two teams be coming out of this region (i.e. Winner & host)or now that New Brunswick will be fielding a team, will only the top team be advancing to the Nations?

Good luck to all the teams.

Hi Reader;

The second half of your comment is the fact. Now that , Mike Fitzgerald has moved to New Brunswick and started a program. We are able to meet the require 10 provinical teams. This follows the main rule requirement for a provinicals.

We mentioned this in an older posting at: http://wheelchaircurler.blogspot.com/2012/01/national-championships-finally-reaches.html

The only reason we allowed to teams from the "Host" city was becuase of numbers making up teams.

Hope this answers your question.

Which points out the obvious problem we have with Team Canada.

A team can represent their province simply by showing up, or at most, playing a very few games.

Compare that to AB, where you play for weeks through zones, provincials, alternate qualifying, etc.

And we think a national champion will be a real challenge to Tema Canada, with training, coaching, etc?
