Congratulations to Darryl Neighbour for his induction into Canadian Curling Hall of Fame. Speaking of awards, uh hm…  Here he is with a bit of olympic gold bling.

From the Curl BC website:

Ina Forrest, from Spallumcheen, near Armstrong, and Darryl Neighbour, from Richmond, join Earle Morris, Bob Weeks and Pierre Charette to be formally inducted into the Canadian Curling Hall of Fame at the Hall of Fame banquet during Tim Hortons Brier week in Ottawa.

“All five of our 2016 inductees have made huge contributions to the sport of curling, on and off the ice, and their achievements deserve to be recognized,” said Scott Comfort, Chair of Curling Canada’s Awards and Hall of Fame Committee. “As always, the challenge for the committee is making the tough decision with so many worthy nominees, but I feel like this year’s group made our decision easier based on their amazing accomplishments.”
