Wee Dram Society strikes again!

Friday April 5 at the RHSC lounge was the scene of libation and other life-shortening activities, as the WDS (Wee Dram Society, a.k.a. We’re Drunk, Sir) staged another in its legacy of brilliant whiskey tasting nights, perennially hosted by the dynamic duo of John Harron (dram-master extraordinaire) and Peter Hunchuk (banquet-master supreme), with supporting cast. Jeff Ho maintained his iron-man (iron-stomach?) record of attending every single one of these events over the years. Noticeably missing (and dearly missed) again was Malcolm Lander, who has among other talents always ensured that all appropriate dues were collected. Malcolm was able to attend our distillery field trip a few weeks ago. Get well, Malcolm, and we look forward to seeing you again at the Friday events.

Thanks to the hosts and all the attendees for a truly enjoyable evening!

Congratulations, Jann Taylor!

This past weekend in between running her Junior clinics on Fridays and her weekend adult drop in clinics, Jann was competing in the Ontario Doubles Championships. With her new partner, Leslie Freeman, they won their 50+ category only dropping 1 game at the start of their Sunday final, hosted by the TRC racquet Club.

Earlier in the season, Jann won another Ontario Championship. In November she entered the Ontario Masters 40+ Singles Championships, her 1st singles tournament in almost 2 years, again only dropping 1 game in the finals.

Earlier in January, Jann along with her partner Kirsteen Burton, lost a tough 5 game final at the Buffalo Invitational Doubles Tournament and in 2 weeks she and Kirsteen will be defending their 2012 title at the Lee Hanebury Doubles tournament in Pickering.
After that, Jann will be training for the Canadian Mixed Doubles,Canadian Ladies Doubles and then the Canadian Masters Singles Championships.

So far a great start to her competitive season!

Jann is avaialble for lessons for singles or doubles througout the week and will try to accomodate time requests wherever possible. Contact her via her personal page on this web site (you must be logged in).
