THE 14TH ANNUAL COUNTY MARATHON Gears Up for Oct 1st Event The idea was first entertained in 2000. Organizers operated the Wellington 4 and 8 KM races to understand how a road race should be run. The Kingston Road Runners Association and Al Cantley from Runners Choice were a great help in developing the event we still use their template to deliver our races. In 2002 we had our first organizational meeting for the County Marathon - one person showed up. The next meeting drew more interest (although the first person we had at the first meeting never came again!) Of the original committee only Sally Wight and Christine Henden are still involved. We will never forget the year when Dorothy, our Committee member accountant, carried the marathon’s $20,000 operating shortfall on her credit card over the winter! She was not alone in the time, effort and financial contributions she committed to keep the race going in its early years. We want to recognize Remax - Christine Henden and the company she works for as a realtor. Remax has been our longest sponsor having been with us since our first race in 2004. We also want to recognize the Dairy Farmers of Prince Edward County for their many years of support - look for them at the finish line handing out 500 ML chocolate milk to runners! Finally we thank Prince Edward County for their support use of the County Roads and other County assets to make this race what it is - Canada’s 24th largest marathon! We do these events to support The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation (and this year have already raised $2100 in donations from our runners).

This event draws on at least 300 volunteers annually - many who have done it every year for the past 13 years - we are indebted to them. We also truly appreciate the OPP for their excellent traffic control on our fully closed cours, and Hastings Prince Edward EMS for their ambulance/ medical support during the races - every year they have to seriously assist at least one runner. We are as a result very thankful for a safety record few other marathons can claim. Because the event requires a great deal of effort we carefully chose a finish as close to the hospital as we could get - to further assure our runners of a safe event. Thank you to emergency nurses Mary Dreifelds and Mary Stever along with Dr. Stephen Blanchard and Dr. Amber Hayward Stewart - their expertise at the finish line is absolutely invaluable. So where are we now? Our next race is October 1st of this year. It will be the same course we have used for the past 13 years. This is an excellent event for the first-time runner and for those trying to qualify for Boston (the runner’s holy grail). It’s a great race for the very first time runner as the Team Challenge lets even non-runners compete. Every year we have businesses challenge each other in this event - landscaping firms, metal shops, even County councillors!

Ivy

bs Hub Rd

This event is well known within the running community. We have earned the respect of many of the top races in Canada and even a few in the USA. It’s because we do it right - every element is expertly managed by our dedicated core committee member’s. Each one has a core competency and if you ask another committee member to tell you about some other members role they really won’t be able to answer you. We do have a slow turn over in our committee with 2 new members joining this year - they are being trained to assume their own specific role - so if you are interested, please contact us. This is an ideal experience for young people looking for CV items. At least one of our key committee members secured full time employment due in no small part to their role in this event!

We feature a Boston Qualifying Full Marathon, Half Marathon for Runners, Walkers and Wheeled Athletes as well as a Team Challenge where there can be 2-5 runners - note this year the rate for this event will be per runner versus per team as it has been in the past. Race Kit Pickup will be held Saturday September 30th only from 10AM - 6PM. If you are not able to attend please find participant to collect your kit on your behalf because your chipped bib will be in your kit (no bib - no time - no medal).

For potential sponsors - this is also an ideal event to

invest in. We offer great opportunities to showcase the County and your services with a target market of largely young urban professionals.

Our website is www.thecountymarathon.ca - there is still time to sign up! Or if you want personal attention contact one of our Committee members found on our webpage www.thecountymarathon.ca/contacts or by calling 888.301.3477.

Happy Running from the County Marathon Committee, see you this fall!

SHANNONVILLE

MOTORSPORT PARK INC

Jean Gauthier to Retire After 25 Years as Track Owner - Track “For Sale” THE TRACKS

Shannonville Motorsport Park covers 146 acres and is one of the longest and most technically challenging tracks in Canada at slightly over 4 kilometres. There are multiple tracks and configurations which make it very versatile and cost effective. The pavement is in very good condition and sections have been repaved through the years.

LOCATION Shannonville has a long and rich history in the racing scene in Canada. It was built by John Nelson in 1974. Mr. Nelson came from Ireland where he was a motorcycle and racing enthusiast. He operated a motorcycle shop in Toronto and built the track to organize motorcycle races. In 1979, the track was sold to Jack Boxstrom, an entrepreneur and racing enthusiast. Boxstrom operated racing schools for car and motorcycles and eventually sold the track to Val David Motorsport Group in 1986. This company invested heavily in a big expansion of the track: Fabi track, new grandstand, new building containing offices, classrooms and a large room on the 4th floor for parties and corporate events. The track was subsequently sold to Jean Gauthier, a CPA, CA and businessman from Montreal. Gauthier has operated the track since 1992 and annually undertook new constructions or improvement projects. When Gauthier bought the track in 1992 there were 10 buildings and structures. There are 21 today. Currently the daily track rentals consist of car racing, drag racing, motorcycle racing, supermoto, lapping, testing, time attack, drifting, go-cart racing, and car and motorcycle racing schools including a truck skidding school on the skid pad. Shannonville is one of the most prominent businesses in the area, providing significant employment and a solid contribution to the local tax base. The winner of multiple community improvement awards from Tyendinaga Township, Shannonville Motorsport Park was also recently named “Business of the Year” with Hastings County as part of an opportunity and tourism initiative.

BOQTotalsportsmagazine.ca

The property is well located to meet the needs of motorsport fans from Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal in addition to many other cities, including Kingston and Peterborough. The property is conveniently adjacent to old Highway #2 and the 401. The track is also close to New York State, exit via 661 of the 401.

TRACK FOR SALE AFTER 25 YEARS!

It will be 25 years of ownership and management of the track by Jean Gauthier in September 2017. The track and its subsidiary Race Events Inc., are for sale as retirement time has come. Shannonville is ready for a new owner to take this amazing business to the next stage in its evolution.

43 YEARS OF PROFITS

Jean Gauthier is proud to say that unlike many financiallyfailed racetracks, Shannonville has posted profits for 43 consecutive years.

GET OUTDOORS Hunting & Fishing Can Be Fun For The Whole Family Ontario boasts an extensive range of climates, environments and hunting experiences, from big game hunts including moose and bear to small game and waterfowl. The diversity of our landscape has long attracted the avid hunter. Track your quarry under fall canopies of spectacular reds and oranges across the province during the fall months. Climb over the rocky terrain of the Canadian Shield, stretching from the Great Lakes north to James Bay. Paddle or wade through the lush marshes and tide-water flats. Perch amid the treetops of vast, untouched tracts of bush. There are a variety of hunting opportunities in the Quinte West area. These include wild turkey, deer, black bear, pheasant, ruffled grouse and spruce grouse, Hungarian partridge, sharp-tailed grouse, raccoon, foxes, rabbits, and squirrel, among others. Please consult the Hunting Regulations summary for more information on hunting opportunities in this area. Well known for excellent boating in the summer months, the waters of the Bay of Quinte, Trent River, and Lake Ontario are also favourite fishing grounds for local residents and visitors year-round. Fishing is a twelve-month sport in Quinte West, attracting enthusiasts of all ages and abilities. The Bay of Quinte is considered the best place to catch walleye and is also home to the elusive garpike. There are also ample stocks of large and smallmouth bass, northern pike, muskellunge, yellow perch, crappie, salmon, brown trout, and rainbow trout. The Bay of Quinte is home to some of the best walleye fishing in the world, and the best part is that you can drop your line year round. In January, the World Fishing Network mentioned the eighty-five kilometre-long waterway in its list of top ice fishing destinations. Zigzagging from Carrying Place in the west to the eastern tip of Prince Edward County in the east, the Bay is made up of hundreds of small inlets, tucked away honey holes and tributaries that are perfect for snagging walleye, as well as largemouth and smallmouth bass, salmon, pike and panfish. Although the first recorded colonists to fish these waters were likely Quebec missionaries in the mid-1600s, the bay had sustained the Iroquois people long before that.

HOTSPOTS

Four areas along the Bay of Quinte you’re sure to get some bites:

Trenton Bay

Fish: largemouth bass, pike, panfish, walleye The City of Trenton sits where the Trent River meets the Bay of Quinte, and it’s just offshore here, in Trenton Bay, and further west near the Murray Canal where you’ll find some of the best walleye fishing in the region.

Belleville Bay

Fish: largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, pike, panfish, walleye

14

BOQTotalsportsmagazine.ca

Further east, where the Moira meets the Bay of Quinte is Belleville Bay, another great location for walleye, as well as largemouth and perch. The islands and inlets around the bay make for some excellent fishing spots.

Telegraph Narrows Fish: largemouth, smallmouth, pike, panfish, walleye Continuing east, past the Bay Bridge in Belleville to Deseronto, is this long, narrow area known by locals for its large populations of smallmouth and walleye. www.www.thegreatwaterway.com

General information on fishing licenses: www.ontario.ca/page/fishing-licence-canadian-residents

Hunting licence (Ontario residents) Before you can hunt in Ontario, you’ll need a hunting version Outdoors Card, and all required licenses, tags, and/ or seals for the intended game. www.ontario.ca/page/hunting-licence-ontario-residents

FALL & WINTER TIPS For Healthy Hair By: Aldo Poropat / Capelli Salon

Hair problems are more common in the winter. Your hair can suddenly acquire static electricity or become extremely brittle as the temperature drops. Below are some healthy hair tips to keep you hair glowing and tangle-free, even during the winter months. Never allow your hair to stay wet for long. In the winter, you should never leave the house without drying your hair. Wash it at least a couple of hours before going out; this will give you enough time to air dry it properly. If you fail to do so, use a blow dryer. You should not need more than 30 minutes to blow dry. Occasional use of a blow dryer is unlikely to cause any harm to your hair, but make sure you don’t use it regularly. Regular use of a blow dryer (even if you use the best brand available on the market) will end up depleting your hair of its natural moisture. Wear styles that need little maintenance. Don’t leave your hair untied during winter. If you hair is not tied up, you may feel like combing your hair or running your fingers through it all the

time. To have healthy and shiny hair during the winter months, it is extremely important that you leave your hair alone. If you keep on combing your hair or touching it time and again, you will be more at risk of hairs falling out and developing split ends. So, instead of leaving your hair untied, choose hair styles like the fishtail braid or top knot. Cover your head with a hat or a scarf when going out. Winter is a time for dry air. Dry air can drain moisture from your scalp and make your hair strands frizzy and dry, which invites problems like hair loss and dandruff. If you keep your head covered while going out, your hair will not come in contact with the dry air, and that will reduce your chances of experiencing the above-mentioned issues. However, make sure that you don’t wear the scarf or hat too tightly, as that could hinder proper blood circulation to your scalp. Deep conditioning should be a part of your hair care routine during winter. Add two teaspoons of olive oil to your regular conditioner before application. This will prevent your hair from getting too dry. Most people do not drink enough water during winter, because they don’t feel as thirsty as they do during the hotter months. However, the body requires water to stay hydrated in both summer and winter. Water will help you counter winter dryness, and ensure that your scalp and hair stay hydrated. Stop by and see us at Capelli Salon in Trenton!

Look well. Feel well. Be well. Where style and passion are born. 79 ONTARIO ST. TRENTON, ON 613.394.3391

HIGHLAND DANCE RICH IN CULTURE IN BAY OF QUINTE See Us Sept 9th - TSIF Festival Highland Dance is now a recognized sport by the Sports Council of Scotland, and enjoyed by many the world over at Highland Games and other competitions. “Highland” has been and continues to be a big part of Quinte West’s heritage. This amazing art is enjoyed by many people at the yearly Scottish-Irish Festival, on Robbie Burns Day, and at other local events. It originated in Scotland and was usually performed by warriors. Women were then able to participate in social and solo dances. Women started competing in “Highland” in the 1940s - changing this art forever. Today it is estimated that 95 percent of competitive Highland dancers are female. Highland dance has many styles. Each genre has special costumes and shoes. Some of the more popular styles:

Fling (Mass Fling) - one of the first dances you learn in Highland; it’s one of the oldest traditional dances. The Fling was originally performed at the start of a battle. It’s usually a part of any modern performances. Dancers wear special shoes known as ghillies. Sword Dance - this dance is performed with 2 Swords.

It was performed as a celebration by the king at the end of a victorious battle.

Hornpipe

- this higher-level dance is intended to portray a sailor, and is actually performed in a sailor’s outfit.

Jig - a red and green dress is worn for this dance, and jig shoes are required. The story behind this dance is that the Irish husband would come home drunk and his wife would beat him. This dance is performed by higher level dancers.

BELLEVILLE PITCH AND HIT For the Love of Baseball! By: Merl Riehl/ Belleville Pitch and Hit

Why we came about is a simple enough answer, we love baseball, but it is the process that makes this all the more memorable for our region. It began with an idea of what it would be like to do what we love and came to life with the passion for sports in the area. The loss of the Belleville Bulls triggered a passionate roller coaster ride of exposing the sheer exuberant love of sport and community in the region. People don’t just live here, they love it here and it shows in support within the community. We only wish to emulate this passion for baseball and give the region what it deserves. That is not only to match what other communities have, but to actually be a leader. We know there is talent in the region, talent that has potential to be more, talent to develop and allow a person to represent us all in a positive light. We are an indoor training and entertainment facility, not just a winter baseball oasis, even though in the winter, we are. Belleville Pitch and Hit allows a player to train out of the cold, wet, dust and heat in a baseball-friendly indoor environment that maximizes training time. Whether you are trying to get a scholarship to a great school, training for a tournament, being introduced to a great sport or just wanting to have fun and hit the ball, we have what you want. Hello Eastern Ontario, we would like to introduce you to the future of baseball here and show the world where you can go and what you can achieve with a bat, ball and determination.

Help us give back to the community by supporting us. Indoor Baseball Training and Entertainment Facility. Stop by and check us out:

BASEBALL ISN’T JUST A GAME By: Merl Riehl Baseball began in the summer of 1839 thanks to Abner Doubleday. Little did he know at the time he would create what it would become today. A game that isn’t only a game, but dreams, friendships and lifelong memories for many players. You don’t have to don the uniform of a major league team to experience this. You only have to put on your local team uniform, feel the sun beaming down as you take the field knowing you are part of a team. Anyone who has played can think back to fond memories of time spent on the baseball field. Whether you are young or a seasoned veteran, you know when you are on the diamond the only thing that matters is that ball, big or small. You’re not thinking of school, work, or what is off the diamond, you are watching that ball, ready to make a home run swing or fantastic catch. Whatever happens your team has your back. Baseball is about backing someone up in case they miss. What is better than knowing you have someone backing you up? If you are just learning, you have volunteer coaches who are there to help you learn, coaches giving their time to help you get better. All you have to do is put that uniform on and believe in the possibilities, dream big, close your eyes and imagine the crowd chanting. Grab your glove and get out there. What follows is incredible. Find friends you haven’t met, life-long memories, and new dreams rich with possibilities.

THE GYM FALL/WINTER FITNESS

???????????

BY: Terry Boyd - The GYM Trenton

Some of my least favourite phrases: “Time’s up,” or “we’re out of peanut butter,” or worst of all, “summer’s almost over.” It was a comment made by a passerby as my family and I started packing up on our last visit to North Beach. It was a gorgeous day on the bay side - no wind, and bathtub- warm water. When it’s windy we go on the lake side, and when it’s calm and nice we would go to the bay side. Any other beach, we’d go close to the bathrooms and canteen. Not so with North Beach, as it has the worst bathrooms in the history of bathrooms (if you’ve been there you know what I mean - even the men have utilized the skill of the “hover”). Our choice was made strictly on the water conditions. But here we were packing up an old frisbee, sand buckets and shovels (one of which we accidentally lifted from another family the visit before), and yes, summer indeed was almost over. Given the weather this year, was it ever truly here? It’s the first time that my Irish skin color went from white to red to tan to white and back, all in two days. I watched the same flock of Canada Geese change direction 6 times, and finally give up and nest in Smithfield. They say that time flies when you’re having fun. That’s not it. They also say that as you get older, time goes more quickly. I’m guessing that’s it. Could this be why this summer went so fast? The end of summer isn’t all doom and gloom however. It’s the start of school for children. It’s a time when kids are anxious to get back to friends and school, and parents are just as anxious to get back to routine. It’s the start of

hockey season, and the start of fall - one of four amazing seasons that many countries don’t enjoy. It’s also the start of the busy season for Gyms. It used to be that the busy season was January, but times have changed. The rule of thumb for Gyms a number of years ago was that January, with people making all kinds of resolutions, resolutions, was the time to get a gym membership. Gym regulars would brace themselves for the onslaught of new members. This migration of sorts lasted usually a couple weeks with the “very committed” few staying on as regular members. Similar to “yo yo” dieting, people found the results to be disappointing, and some never came back. As people became more educated, they understood that consistent training and activity was the key to success. A lifestyle change with consistency and commitment did breed success - and people’s thinking changed. This is why September is so important. September became the new “January.” When people could get back into regular routine, they made the gym a part of their lives. Rather than start off the new year in January with unrealistic goals, they now sign up at the gym in September as part of a lifestyle change. When the kids are in school, the parents are going back to the gym. More more realistic goals are the result, leading to success, which spawns more success. The closer you are to your fitness goals, the easier it is to maintain a commitment. There’s no “yo-yoing”. While we register our kids for sports, programs, activities and walk them to their first day of school, our minds should also be considering getting back into the gym, or heading there for the first time - for ourselves. Another way of looking at it - if you start now, how much closer to your goals could you be in January? Are you going to make this September, your new January?

CELTIC PUB TRENTON All Things Celtic Fundraiser By: Bay of Quinte Total Sports The Celtic Pub in Trenton will kick-off their Thursday evening “All things Celtic” fall and winter fundraising initiative beginning Thursday September 7, 2017 with the celebration of another annual start to Trenton’s Highland Games weekend. In collaboration with Bay of Quinte Total Sports, the Celtic Thursday’s will include fundraising for local organizations including the Trenton Scottish Irish Festival, dance clubs catering to highland dance for children who wish to take lessons but may not have the financial resources to do so. The fundraiser will also support our local pipe bands that are always in need of funding for new uniforms, instruments, travel and more. The Celtic Pub will feature Scottish and Irish music and entertainment, Celtic food, highland dancers, drink specials and prizes every Thursday throughout the fall and winter months beginning at 4pm until close. 10% of all food sales will be donated to our local Scottish/Irish organizations along with fundraising initiatives taking place during these fun-filled events. A sport is not always considered to be a game of hockey, soccer, basketball or golf. A sport to some is to participate in the sport of highland dance, heavy events and all things Celtic including highland games and parading throughout the streets of our communities in their beloved pipe bands. Yes music in this respect is a sport, a hobby loved by so many. Like any other club or non profit organization, funding is scarce and fundraising a necessity.

THE UB CELTIC P For 27 years, the Trenton Scottish-Irish Festival has been a highly-anticipated start to the autumn season throughout the Bay of Quinte region, as thousands of folks converge on the picturesque Centennial Park for two days of Celtic culture, music, games, dancing, food, sport and family fun. For this reason, Eva from the Celtic Pub says they look forward to giving back to these local clubs who are part of our Quinte West cultural history. We hope you will come out on Thursdays this fall and have some Celtic cheer, bring your friends and make some new ones. Enjoy some homemade Scottish and Irish favourites, drinks and music while supporting a great cause.

THE WORLD’S MOST EXCITING SPORT Team Building, Confidence & A Whole Lot of Fun! Paintball is one of the newest and most exciting sport sensations to sweep the world

Paintball started in the early eighties with pistols used for marking cattle. It began as a discussion between businessmen about who had better instincts for survival, country boys or city boys - and he rest is history. From that small discussion, a whole industry has quickly grown. It is now an organized team sport, with independent manufacturers of markers and related equipment, regular playing fields and recognized tournaments. Major tournaments offer prize money of as much as $100,000. The game is played with gas-operated markers that shoot biodegradable gelatin capsules filled with a water-soluble, non-toxic paint. Although paintball is sometimes referred to as a “war” game, the sport does not promote or glorify war. In fact, it does the opposite. Once you experience the sport of paintball, you will soon realize that any real combat zone is definitely not the safe place that the movies make them out to be, even if you are an invincible hero. Paintball is not violent despite its appearance to the uninitiated. Paintball players wear camouflage clothing only because the game is played in the woods and they don’t want to be seen by their opponents. Paintball is a sport where men, women, and young and old can compete equally. Size, strength or gender are not as important as intelligence and determination. Paintball is played throughout the world by people from all walks of life. Players learn the importance of teamwork and gain self-confidence while developing valuable leadership skills. Players who pay attention to their senses and develop good team-oriented strategy, and planning and communication skills will overpower their opposition easily and quickly. Paintball is now played in nearly every country by millions of people every weekend. Almost every city and small town in North America now has an organized paintball field. Once the adrenaline starts pumping, you can’t help but love the thrill of the game!!! PAINTBALL FACTS: The First Game • In the 1960s the Nelson Paint Company created a gelatin sphere filled with oil-based paint. It originally manufactured paintballs for marking trees and cattle. • The first marker was the Nel-Spot Paint Pistol • In the 1970s a group of friends - Hayes Noel, Bob Gurnsey, and Charles Gaines - talked for years about surviving in the woods, and got the idea for the game when someone saw a Nel-Spot pistol in a farming catalog. • The first official game ever played was June 7th 1981, near New Hampshire, with 12 players; Charles Gains, Bob Gurnsey, Hayes Noel, Lionel Atwill, Bob Jones, Jerome Gary, Ritchie White, Bob Carlson, Ken Barrett, Ronnie Simpkins, Joe Drinon and Carl Sandquist 24 BOQTotalsportsmagazine.ca

• • •

Each player had a Nel-Spot pistol, extra tubes of paint and shop goggles The first game was called “The Survival Game.” Flag stations were placed over an 80-acre field and each station had 12 different coloured flags. The player first to collect all 12 of his assigned flags, or the last player standing, was the winner.

HOW PAINTBALL LAUNCHED • In 1981, Sports Illustrated published an article about paintball, followed by Time Magazine and Sports Afield • Gurnsey, Gaines and Noel saw an opportunity to start a business, so they started to sell paintball starter kits (Nel-spot pistol, paintballs, goggles, and rule book) • The first commercial field was opened by Bob Gurnsey in March 1982 in New Hampshire • Gurnsey branded it the National Survival (NSG), and signed a contract with the Nelson Paint Company • Over time, more paintball companies emerged, including Pursuit Marketing Incorporated (PMI), and Tippman Pneumatics. This created competition, and the paintball industry was born. • The first NSG field was opened in London, Ontario by Steve Ingles in 1982 • The first NSG National Championship was in 1983 and London’s “The Unknown Rebels” took first place and became the first world champions of paintball . • By 1989, more than 75,000 people were playing paintball every weekend in the United States, and thousands more in Canada, Europe, and beyond. • Over the years the sport of paintball has gained more media exposure, both positive and negative. When played correctly, it is a safe sport. • Paintball is a community of amazing people who always help each other. The sport brings people together and makes everyone forget about problems in life. “Paintball is great because it’s so versatile. There are only so many ways to play football, or hockey, or most other organized sports. In paintball it’s always changing. It stays fresh and it’s constantly competitive because (especially for recreational players) you rely on teamwork and luck just as much as individual skill.” -Trey Darak “For me, it is because it transcends age, race and gender barriers. You simply get on a field with strangers and by the end of it you have developed an unbreakable bond, strong teamwork and a new sense of community. The best compliment is when those ‘strangers’ return the next weekend because now they are teammates.” – Allie Militky “It’s awesome how many people you meet . Also getting outside and being active, especially with my friends. Plus when I’m in the game I let all my life’s problems go and just live in the moment.” – Brandon Kim FOR MORE INFORMATION ON PAINTBALL CHECK OUT CAMP XTREME PAINTBALL

ANDREW SHAW At just 26 years old, Belleville’s Andrew Shaw has achieved a lot. BY: Tim Durkin @rock107durkin News Anchor and Reporter Rock 107, Mix 97 and CJBQ Photos: Darlene Shaw

For most, an OHL title and a pair of Stanley Cup titles would be seen as a successful career, however there could still be more than a decade left of hockey for the former Quinte Red Devil. Shaw spoke with us while on his way to Montreal to prepare for his second season with the Habs. Q: What is it like to play for the Canadiens and in such a historic hockey market? “Going into Montreal on the road was always a tough game. It’s good to be on the home side now. They love the game; they love winning. I enjoy it. We had a really good season last year, winning the division. We fell short in the playoffs. We know the fans will be there for us and we have to give them everything we got. There’s a lot of things you’ve got to get used to, the language for one. The best thing about it is, it’s a hockey city. They treat us like gold. Q: You don’t get much time off in the summer. What is the goal when you come back to the Quinte region? “You try to get over the sorrows of the season. You try to rest and let the body recover. I usually take a month off from the ice. You need to let your body recuperate. Later in the summer you have to be in the gym five days a week, on the ice three times a week. “I do a bunch of charity golf tournaments during the summer and it’s nice to give back, but there’s a lot of requests. That’s why going to the cottage is nice. Spend my time with family and friends. When I first come home, I don’t leave the cottage for about three weeks.”

BOQTotalsportsmagazine.ca

Q: Chicago and Montreal are hockey markets. Is it tough to be yourself, when you are always in the spotlight? “Hockey players like to joke around, have fun and even be idiotic. When you’re in focus, you represent your team, a company, a group. You have to behave. That’s why I like going back to the cottage, where I get to be that idiot kid I was growing up. No one is going to judge me.” Q: You got married this summer. What was the planning like while you were in the middle of the season? “I got to marry my best friend. The wedding went by way too fast. She (Chaunette) had a lot of the year to get everything set in stone. I helped out more than I wanted to and more then she wanted probably.” Q: You are not an old guy by any means, however you have experience in big games. Do you see yourself as a veteran now? “It’s tough coming in as a young guy. You have a lot of people telling you what to do. I just try to make sure the new guys feel comfortable. When you’re being yourself and having fun, you’re playing your best hockey.” Q: How do you feel things will go in Montreal in 2017-18. “I think we’re a team that needs to learn. We are a huge depth team. We don’t have one line that scores. Everyone needs to chip in and spread the wealth. Depth on D, depth on forward and we obviously have great goaltending. We’re going to get much better as the season goes on.”

BELLEVILLE SENATORS

Hockey Operations Meet The Staff

The American Hockey League may be new to Belleville, but there are a lot of familiar faces in the team’s hockey operations department.

The Senators are coming to Belleville from Binghamton, New York, and many of the people who will run the hockey operations side of the team have made the trip from New York State, giving the Senators a wealth of AHL experience to draw from. Belleville’s staff will once again be led by General Manager Randy Lee and Head Coach Kurt Kleinendorst, who are both coming over from Binghamton in their same roles. Rounding out the inaugural season staff will be Paul Boutilier as Assistant Coach, Jeremy Benoit as the team’s Strength and Conditioning Coach, Dylan Crawford as Video Coach, Kory Cooper as Goaltending Development Consultant, Craig Belfer as Athletic Therapist, Matthew Mitchell as Equipment Manager and Michael Boyes as Assistant Equipment Manager. Furthermore, Shean Donovan, the Ottawa Senators’ Player Development Coach, will hold the same role with the Belleville Senators. “We’re excited about the staff we’ve assembled for our inaugural AHL season in Belleville,” Lee says. “We have a wellrounded group with plenty of experience and success in the American Hockey League and we know that they are eager to begin the next chapter of development in our organization.” The Senators’ hockey operations staff comes with a wealth of previous AHL and professional hockey experience, and there are even a couple of Belleville Bulls connections as local hockey fans will no doubt recognize. Lee has been with the Ottawa Senators organization for the past 23 years, and was named the Binghamton Senators’ General Manager in January, 2014. Kleinendorst has previously coached the Albany Devils, Iowa Wild and the Binghamton Senators, where he led the team to a Calder Cup title in 2011. Boutilier, who won a Stanley Cup in 1983 as a player with the New York Islanders, played 208 games in the AHL and joins the Senators for his first professional coaching position from the Saint John Sea Dogs of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Donovan, a veteran of 951 NHL games who retired after the 2009-10 season, will work alongside Lee in overseeing the progress of prospects in Belleville. Benoit worked the past two seasons as an Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach for both the Ottawa Senators and the Binghamton Senators while also being responsible for player development for the Wichita Thunder and Evansville Icemen of the East Coast Hockey League.

Crawford will begin his second year with the Senators franchise after spending the 2016-17 campaign in Binghamton. He continues the tradition of having a Crawford family member involved in hockey in Belleville, a local tradition for sure! Marc Crawford, by the way, is Assistant Coach of the Ottawa Senators, so the Belleville link continues at the NHL level as well. Cooper is also in his second year with the Senators and has previously worked in the Ontario Hockey League as goaltending coach for the Kingston Frontenacs and Mississauga Steelheads. During his playing career Cooper spent three seasons as a goaltender with the Belleville Bulls, posting a record of 68-64-10 over 156 games. Belfer was previously the head therapist for the Belleville Bulls and has also worked with the Frontenacs in his career. Mitchell has spent 12 seasons in the AHL working for the Binghamton Rangers, Lowell Devils, Oklahoma City Barons and Binghamton Senators. He has also spent time in the NHL with the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils as an assistant equipment manager. Boyes will enter his second year with the Senators having previously spent time as the head equipment manager for the OHL’s Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. His father Bryan Boyes has been the Head Trainer with the Oshawa Generals for several decades. All in all the Senators have a deep and experience staff that is ready to bring the American Hockey League to local fans at the beautifully remodeled Yardmen Arena in a few short weeks! The Belleville Senators will open their season on October 6 against the Laval Rocket at Place Bell before playing their inaugural home opener at the Yardmen Arena on Nov. 1 against the Syracuse Crunch.

Season tickets are the best way to enjoy the American Hockey League’s debut in Belleville at the best possible price with great seats still available for the inaugural 2017-18 AHL season.

CHIROPRACTIC: The Key to Performance and Recovery Submitted By: Dr. Stephen Lippitt D.C.

Today’s greatest athletes invest massive amounts of time, money, and resources into bodily performance and effective recovery. Chiropractic continues to escalate in importance to both the world’s top athletes and local recreational enthusiasts. Chiropractic empowers novice, amateur, and elite athletes with better healing, performance, and recovery. Most of the world’s greatest athletes utilize the benefits of chiropractic including athletes like Tom Brady, Sidney Crosby, and LeBron James. Every NFL team currently keeps a chiropractor on staff for their players. Most Olympians employ the benefits of regular chiropractic care to improve performance and speed recovery time. The benefits of chiropractic adjustments spread from humble beginnings to the global spotlight as performance-driven professionals discovered the positive impact of nervous system care. chiropractic care delivers an edge in professions where fractions of seconds and inches determine the difference between world championships and defeat.

The outcome of athletic competition directly relates to the

condition of the human body. Equipment certainly plays a role in comfort and performance, but the conditioning, flexibility, and coordination play much larger roles. The impact of human performance makes sports and recreational activities attractive to people as both spectators and active participants. A deeply satisfying element exists in watching and experiencing human beings successfully think, move, and react to adversity and challenge. A wellfunctioning body serves as the greatest piece of equipment in any playing arena.

The most important aspect of scientifically-engineered chiropractic care is that it is available to everyone. Chiropractic began as a health care alternative to drugs and surgery for all people, including weekend warriors on the golf course and on-the-go moms taking care of young children. Science and research prove that a chiropractic adjustment improves mobility, range of motion, muscle strength, coordination, and recovery. These benefits go hand in hand with minimization and prevention of pain.


Chiropractic adjustments improve mobility and remove stress from the nervous system.

A

recent study showed that athletes who received a chiropractic adjustment to their pelvis had a 3.6 centimeter improvement in their vertical jump compared to a 0.5 centimeter improvement in those who experienced a regiment of stretching alone. Such a specific study emphasizes the impact of Chiropractic care in even the smallest movements. Chiropractic adjustments improve mobility and remove stress from the nervous system. The nervous system helps run and regulate all functions in the body. An adjustment begins with the spine and radiates throughout all organs and systems in the body. Golfers on the PGA Tour or at the local golf course can all experience decreased tension and stress in their spine and body through Chiropractic. The same benefit awaits joggers and exercise enthusiasts of all shapes and sizes. Improved performance and recovery time begins with maximization of the spine and nervous system. Human beings love to be active and Chiropractic cannot wait to help.

The Belleville Chiropractor, Dr. Stephen Lippitt Practicing in Belleville, Ontario, Canada since 2002, Dr. Steve has been a chiropractor since 1996. Originally from Calgary, Alberta, Dr. Steve attended the University of Calgary for his undergraduate studies. Following that he received his Doctor of Chiropractic from Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon, USA. During his chiropractic career he has witnessed many incredible healing miracles in people’s lives as a result of chiropractic. A chiropractic patient since he was a child, Dr. Steve knows first-hand how vital a clear and healthy spine and nerve system is for our wellbeing. When not educating and adjusting patients, Dr. Steve loves to spend quality time with his family, training for triathlons, and enjoys writing and recording his own original music with his band ‘Atomic Spirit’.

REMEMBERING BELLEVILLE’S HOCKEYPAST BY: Jack Miller BY: Jack Miller is the Sports Director of CJBQ – MIX 97 and ROCK 107 What community was once home to the Black Hawks, Eagles and Rockets? Here’s a hint. It’s not Chicago, Philadelphia or Houston. In fact these hockey teams and many more have called Belleville home at one time or another at the senior and junior levels since 1942. And now as a new hockey era in Belleville and the Quinte area is about to begin with the Senators it seems like a fitting time to look back. Think of hockey in Belleville and the OHL “Bulls” will be the first team to come to mind for just about everybody which makes sense. Not only did they represent the most recent era of hockey in our city, the Bulls were also the deepest rooted of their ten predecessors spanning almost two generations. The first two years were spent in the former Provincial Junior “A” Hockey League before a 34-year run at hockey’s highest junior level. Before the Bulls came along the Metro Junior “B” Belleville “Bobcats” ruled the local hockey scene commanding full houses on Friday nights at the Memorial Arena. Those games included the long standing tradition of “bootlegging” it up Market Street to the nearby Queen’s Hotel to belt down a drink or two between periods. And before games patrons of the day will remember the site of team owner Jim “Snipe” Mathews sitting at a table just outside the doors to the rink with two decks of playing cards and a paper bag. He used them as raffle tickets for a chance to win one of two “large samples” from the LCBO. The “Bobcat” era ran from 1972 until they re-located to Trenton when the Bulls joined the OHL in 1981. The team did return to Belleville in 1987 before relocating to Wellington two years later to become the “Dukes”.

32

BOQTotalsportsmagazine.ca

Of course the other significant hockey era belonged to the Belleville “McFarlands” from 1956 to 1961 - a well documented Senior “A” amateur team playing in the Ontario Hockey Association. Their five-year run included an Allan Cup (Canadian Senior Hockey Championship) in 1958 and a World Championship a year later. The “Macs” disappeared two years after that pushing Belleville off the hockey map for five years. Belleville would re-join the Senior loop as the “Mohawks” in the fall of 1966 followed by the “Quintes” in 1970 before the “Eagles” made a one-year appearance in 1973. Belleville’s first junior team was called the “Rockets” (194950). It wasn’t unusual for teams to incorporate their sponsor’s name into their nicknames. McFarland Construction was the most obvious. The Belleville “Reliance” was the city’s first OHA Senior team in 1942. They were sponsored by the Reliance Aircraft and Tool Company. Even the “Bobcats” were named for their principal sponsor, local lawyer Bob Temple. However of the ten different names carried by Belleville senior and junior clubs over the decades there is one that stands out for its peculiarity - the Belleville “Memos”. They were a senior team that operated in 1954-55. I have no idea where that name came from. Perhaps they were sponsored by a stenographer.


BELLEVILLE & DISTRICT SHRINE CLUB 73 Years Helping Children With Disabilities Reach Their Dream In Sports By Stephen D. Shirk, Public Relations Director, The Belleville & District Shrine Club

Shriners have been easily identified for many years in parades by their red fez’s, funny bikes, mini-cars, and much more. The first Canadian temple was built in Toronto in 1888. The Belleville & District Shrine Club was formed on 14 April 1944 when they separated from the Kingston Shrine Club. They initially met in different locations on Campbell Street in Belleville until they finally bought a house that was built in 1880 at 51 Highland Avenue around 28 July 1945. where they currently reside. Throughout these years the Belleville & District Shrine Club has been totally involved with fundraising to cover the costs for the care of children who have required orthopaedic, cleft pallet and burn care at either the Montreal Shrine Hospital for Children in Quebec, at the Erie Shrine Hospital for Children in PA, or at any of the three burn hospitals in the U.S., the main one being the Boston Hospital for Children in Massachusetts. Shriners campaign for these operating and transportation funds through their various fundraising activities by attending parades throughout the region, selling chocolate bars and Christmas cakes, bingos, golf tournaments, curling bonspiels, BBQs, or by running special events within the community.

Many stories have been published locally about famous Ontario junior players, including Wayne Gretzky, Steve Yzerman, and Brendan Shanahan. A 1972 hockey program booklet lists Belleville hockey names like Bobby and Dennis Hull, a legion of Crawfords, the Meagher boys, Jeff Smith, Willie Skillitor, and Cory Stillman. In the 1972 Hockey Program booklet it was mentioned that the following hockey players had participated in the rinks in Belleville to include: Bobby and Dennis Hull; Bobby, Marc, Louie, Peter, Mike , Todd and Eric Crawford; Rick, Terry and Tony Meagher; Jeff Smith and Willie Skillitor; Toy Sweet; and Chris Longo. There are probably many more that could be mentioned. The Belleville and District Shrine Club needs the community’s help to support kids with disabilities, and to help sponsor children in local sports activities.

Since 1994 the Shrine Club has sponsored local soccer teams for children. They have also supported local youth hockey teams since 1950 and between 1957 to 1961 they organized hockey tournaments between the police and the firefighters called the Shrine Annual Police-Firemen Hockey Game. In 1962,the Belleville Shriners began sponsoring minor hockey tournaments at the peewee and bantam levels, to the delight of young hockey players and their families.

EXCITEMENT IS IN THE AIR - DUKES Operations Team Assembles Excitement is in the air in Prince Edward County as a new operations team assembles the 2017-2018 edition of the Wellington Dukes.

After long-time head coach and G.M. Marty Abrams resigned to take the reins of the rival Trenton Golden Hawks, it was announced that former Dukes captain and current Associate Coach Ryan Woodward would serve as the new General Manager and Scott McCrory, former Whitby Fury coach, will be the new head coach for the Dukes. Local businessman and former player Randy Uens will be the vice president of hockey operations, while Kyle Hawkins-Schulz and Ryan Kitchen are the 2017-18 assistant coaches. The new regime plans to be active in the community. “It all comes back to the kids and trying to get kids to want to become Dukes,” Uens said. “We’ll be helping out with hockey practices and trying to get the Dukes brand out there as much as possible.” The County of Prince Edward Mayor Robert Quaiff extended a warm welcome to the new hockey operations group of the Wellington Dukes. “The Dukes are an integral part of our community, and this group recognizes the passion many people in Wellington and across The County have for this team,” Mayor Quaiff says. “I am particularly pleased that the group, led by Vice-President (Hockey Operations) Randy Uens, has pledged an increased focus on the local community.” Under the guidance and leadership of McCrory and Woodward, the Wellington Dukes are fully committed to recruiting and developing the most talented and determined student athletes in the province. Woodward said, “We believe that winning and development go hand in hand. Our program will offer players the best opportunity to maximize their potential and reach their goals. We promise to assemble a group of highly motived, highly skilled players that will attract the attention of scouts at the NCAA and Major Junior level.” The people of Prince Edward County and Wellington are a deeply passionate and proud hockey community. Woodward said without hesitation that expectations and the standards of success in Wellington will remain extremely high. “Ultimately our quest is to bring a championship to Wellington. We are dedicated to maintaining our status as an elite hockey program and our fan base is the best in the league.”
