Bantam Celtics Off to a Good Start


By Jennifer Gaudreau


he Cornwall Celtics Bantam Lacrosse team completed tryouts in late April, and began zone play only days later. This years line-up, sponsored by J Bernier Excavation is Jack Almond, Justin Boots, Jake Cook, Zak Coir, Taran Fiacco, Tommy Forrester, Sam Gaudreau, Jimmy Jock, Morgan Kane, Eric Leblanc, Emerson Lalonde, Cameron Marleau, Robbie Metcalfe, Mick Miller, Kolten OakesCook, Carter Tait and Noah Salazar. After not having enough players last year to field a team Cornwall was overwhelmed this year with the talented turnout as well as some great athletes who are coming from competitive hockey to join the Celtic ranks. The team is especially excited about these years coaching staff consisting of young and energetic senior “B” lacrosse players, Tyler Barnhart and Nick Sanseverino. The Bantam team began their first games both on May 3 practicing only once prior to playing two seasoned Ottawa teams, losing 4-0 to Gloucester and 4-2 to Nepean. The Celtics only two goals that day both go to two of the minors on the roster, Carter Tait and Mick Miller (both unassisted). Zak Coir was exceptional in between the pipes stopping over 33 shots in the game vs. Gloucester, and playing equally as well in the game against Nepean. The team began regular training with off-floor workouts once a week as well as two intense practices at the Benson center weekly. With insightful instruction on defense, strategies coupled with strong work ethic the team managed to win all three of the games that followed. The May 10 game in Kahnawake began with the home team scoring two goals early in the first period, leaving the Celtics to chase them in the second. The team responded by putting four in the net early in the second period, with goals credited to Sam Gaudreau, Jack Almond, Robbie Metcalfe, and, Jake Cook with assists from Tait

on the second goal and Jimmy Jock on the third. The Kahnawake team managed to score two more goals late in the second, but the Celtics shut them down in the third scoring five more goals, making the final score 9-4. Third period scoring goes to Jock assisted by Cook, Kolten Oakes-Cook assisted by Gaudreau, Almond, Cook, and OakesCook assisted by Miller. May 17 the team travelled to Kingston where they beat the Crossfire team 13-2. The Celtics team showed great passing and ball control rarely allowing the opposition to enter in the house. Goals went to Oakes-Cook (3), Tait (2), Cook (2), Miller (2), Gaudreau, Forrester, Almond, Metcalfe and assists too numerous to mention but recorded as Gaudreau (2), Noah Salazar (2), Miller

(2), Almond (2), Oakes-Cook, Cook, Justin Boots and Emerson Lalonde. The May 18th home game was highspirited and penalties for Kahnawake totaled over 22 minutes versus the more disciplined Celtic team who had only 10 minutes. Putting in the first goal for the Celtics was an unassisted breakaway by Gaudreau halfway through the first period. The next two were twin power play goals both going in at the end of the first by Cook assisted by Oakes-Cook. With one minute left in the first Celtics put in another with a running cross pass to Lalonde from Gaudreau making the score 4-0 going into the second. Period two was riddled with penalties on both sides, but nothing changed on the scoreboard. Celtics allowed the Kahnawake team one goal early in the

third but found their wind late in the same period resulting in a goal each by Forrester and Jock, with assists going to Eric Leblanc, Cook, Jock and Morgan Kane. Final score 6-1. On May 31st the undefeated Gloucester team travelled to Cornwall where they came out strong and aggressive but Celtics good defense and strong net minding by Zak Coir resulted in a frustrated Griffins team. Celtics pushed back hard for periods one and two still with a scoreless game. In the third period, Griffins gave up eight minutes of power play to the Celtics and despite equally strong goaltending for the opposing team Jimmy Jock managed to put one in resulting in a big 1-0 win for the Celtics. Bantam Celtics played in their first Continued on page 6

What’ SUP? Paddleboard Catches On

Photo supplied by Blair Bell.

The view from a stand-up paddleboard (SUP) on Lake St. Francis is breathtaking.

By Blair Bell


ondering what SUP stands for???? Well it’s one of the fastest growing water activities in recent years and it means Stand Up Paddleboard. So why all the hype? I have to admit when we first got into it I was skeptical, I wasn’t sure how it could be as fun as what people were saying. We brought in some boards and when they arrived we jumped on to give it a whirl. You would think that it would be really hard to keep your balance,

but the boards are generally longer and wider than a traditional surfboard and are pretty stable. So away we went paddling out on the river and soon realized that the sport was as fun as people were saying. The fact that you are standing up and usually have sun glasses on, gives you a great view to the bottom of the river (when the water is not too deep, which happens a lot on Lake St Francis), and seeing fish scurrying away as you pass over them is frequent. One realizes quickly that you can paddle about three to five strokes on one side of the board and then have to

switch to the other side and do the same to Jumping off the board and getting back on is easier than getting back into a kayak or canoe so if you get too hot and want to cool off, a quick dip is a breeze. Turning the board isn’t very difficult either with back paddling making this task a lot faster. If you get daring, shifting your weight back on the board and making it stand up on end, a bit like “popping a wheelie” on a bike, allows you to perform a 360 degree turn in a snap. The boards are fairly lightweight and that makes them easy to car-top to get to your favorite paddling spot.

Another way people are starting to use their SUP’s is by doing yoga on them. Yoga can be tricky enough on a solid surface so imagine doing it on a SUP while floating on the water. All in all a good way to get some exercise and spend some time on the water. If you are interested in buying or renting an SUP or if you would like to try SUP yoga, just visit us at Hybrid Marine Ltd on Hwy 2 near South Lancaster, check us out at ( or call 613 360 6501.

Presents...Then and Now Cornwall Royals Edition - Rick Plamondon Plamondon Says Hockey Career Based On “Right Place, Right Time”

By Morley Seaver


etting Rick Plamondon to talk about his on-ice triumphs is like pulling teeth. The modest former Cornwall Royal puts a lot of it down to “right place, right time.” The classy 67 year-old centre, who spent a season and a half (1965-66 and 1966-67) with the Royals is built, disposition-wise, along the lines of a Jean Beliveau or Henri Richard. “When you spend a lot of time on the ice, you get a lot of scoring opportunities,” says Plamondon. There’s no denying Plamondon made an immediate impact in his first game as a Royal. “I was cut at the start of the season,” he remembers. “But they called me back up in November. I scored three or four goals against Brockville and stayed with the team for the rest of the year.” That was the beginning of many successful games for Plamondon. The first year, he scored 22 goals, ending with 44 points. The second year he was even better, netting 51 goals and 56 assists and winning the scoring championship. One of his favorite memories is the series against Sault St Marie in his second year. “They had a good club,” he says. “They had just beat North Bay and we had a good run with them. We were losing three games to two and had to go back to their own building, so that was tough but we were able to win the sixth game up there and then the seventh game there 2-1, so it was great.” Plamondon skips over the fact he scored three goals in the sixth game and the winner in the seventh game, shorthanded, with three minutes to play. When reminded about it, he simply says, “We were definitely out to avenge the losses back home. I guess I just don’t like to lose (laughs), so you do whatever you have to do to win. But

you just have to be at the right place at the right time. Like the second goal in the last game, there was a shot from the point and I just happened to be going by and it just tipped off my stick and went into the net. So very often, it’s just right place, right time.” The next series against Thetford Mines and Rejean Houle, Marc Tardiff and Gilbert Perreault was a short one. “So those three guys killed us in that series. I think we lost that series four games to one.” Plamondon started playing hockey at the bantam level, but says he developed his skills in the backyard. “I remember playing on a creek behind our place. The creek was only about three feet wide and we had 10 guys playing on it. (laughs) It’s just like the stories you hear of old-time hockey but that’s how

you learn to play hockey. You learn how to stickhandle because you didn’t have a whole lot of room there.” From there, it was onto playing in the Juvenile Hockey League in Cornwall where he also won the scoring championship, and got the Royals attention. His scoring prowess resulted in another amazing stat, namely eight goals in the team’s 43-0 domination over Hawkesbury. “Well, those statistics never counted,” he laughs. “They threw out the statistics of that game. What happened was, there was a problem with the players on the Hawkesbury team and the regular players didn’t want to play so they sent in a lot of midget players. They didn’t want to forfeit the game because it would have cost them a fine or something. We made the national

news that night. Actually, I only played a period and a half. The second half we played all of our younger players for the rest of the game. It’s memorable in one sense but laughable in another, you know?” Education was as important to Plamondon as hockey. While playing with the Royals, he took university courses. In fact, during the Thetford Mine series, Ed Lumley (former mayor and MP) drove him to and from the game so that he could write some final university exams. “That was the toughest part,” he admits, “especially in the playoffs. I was writing final exams in April and then playing hockey in all these places where he had to travel to. That was difficult. But, hey I enjoyed the game. I had a lot of support with people moving me around. But it was stressful in some instances.” Plamondon opted for a teaching career post hockey. “I was offered a tryout with Tulsa in the Central Hockey League in the States,” he says “but I only had one year left for my university degree so I had a decision to make. I decided to go to school because at that time, I couldn’t remember any of the previous guys ever staying in the NHL. I mean some had been at minor pro leagues but none had hit the NHL at that time because there were only six teams. So the prospect of getting to the NHL was not terrific. “My father always made sure that I went to school first. That was important. I think I made the right choice. I mean, I was offered more money to play hockey than I made in my first year of teaching but in the end, it turned out great. I had a great teaching career so no regrets. I mean, sometimes you wonder what could have happened and just a few years after that, that’s when the league expanded and there could have been some possibilities but I think I made the right choice.”

or some boxers it is the possibility to enhance their boxing skills, have some good bouts with boxers from other provinces and gain valuable experience. For others, it is the possibility of winning the Canadian Golden Gloves and earning the right to compete at the Nationals this coming October in Toronto. But for all of the 2014 Canadian Golden Gloves competitors, it is without doubt, the only open international tournament of this caliber in Canada. From July 8th to the 13th on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, two boxing rings standing in a very large tent on the grounds of the NAV Centre,


will be the home of the tournament that was established in 2013 and has attracted over 200 boxers, coaches and officials. This year, Boxing Canada and the hosting venue, are expecting close to 300 participants. Cornwall, the city where the Canadian Golden Gloves is making history, is looking forward to the tournament, according to Mayor Bob Kilger. “The Canadian Golden Gloves is an important athletic competition and therefore it brings national and international attention to Cornwall. People from around the world will get to know our City a little bit better, and find out what Cornwall has to offer,” said Kilger.

For boxers like 64kg Brandon Leaman, 19, from Newfoundland/ Labrador (NL), who comes to Cornwall to defend his title, the Golden Gloves was his first major national tournament and gave him the confidence to participate in the Nationals in Regina, in October 2013. “I’ll be there, no doubt. Can’t wait,” said Leaman. “Last year it was an amazing tournament. I can’t complain about anything; accommodation, food, venue, people, the organization was awesome.” said Leaman. Robert Crete, Boxing Canada executive director feels that this tournament is a great opportunity to motivate the new generation of boxers. “Boxing Canada is pleased to once again be hosting this prestigious event at the NAV CENTRE in Cornwall,” said Crete. “The venue, facilities, area and amenities are ideal for an

occasion of this magnitude.” The 2013 Canadian Golden Gloves crowned 55 champions. 99 per cent of the boxers had at least two bouts during the tournament and 75 per cent had three bouts. “It is great exposure for the boxer, they will gain great experience,” said Daniel Trepanier, Boxing Canada High Performance Director. “It’s a great tournament for the long term development of Boxng Canada.” This Golden Gloves tournament is for both male and female boxers. Junior, youth and elite divisions will be contested and all competitors will wear headgear, however the new 10 point system will be used to score the bouts as well as the other new rules introduced by AIBA in March 2013. “We are excited and proud to have a tournament in Canada where novices and open boxers can compete in such a large scale and gain experience,” said Pat Fiacco, Boxing Canada President.

To Be Really Successful You Have To Love It By Diane Hunter


ornwall duathlete Mathieu Despatie trains every day. He runs, he bikes and he studies law. He said it’s not easy, but it helps to keep him balanced. “Being the best I can be at this sport is what really inspires me to train every day.” “When and where I train depend on the time of year. I am attending Law School at Queen’s University in Kingston, so during the school year almost all my training is in Kingston,” said Despatie. “During the winter while I am at school I generally only train once a day so depending on my schedule I will train either before classes in the morning or when I get back in the afternoon. During the four months I am home for summer I train more often. “Luckily around my house the area is quite good for both biking and running so I do not have to go far. As race season (summer) approaches I generally train twice a day, one bike and one run. For these I generally do one in the morning and then one again later in the afternoon. I also do a significant amount of training indoors, either on a treadmill or on my bike on a stationary trainer.” Despatie has been involved in competitive running and duathalons for eight years with his first race being the Cornwall Kid’s Triathlon in 2006. Not a member of any team, Despatie does most of his training alone. “The real battle is with yourself and pushing yourself to your limits,” said Despatie. Despatie was inspired to get involved in endurance sports after reading Lance Armstrong’s two autobiographies. “I think one of the most important things I do, which has played a great role in my success is to really enjoy the process,” he said. “The amount of times you actually race is so few, especially considering the amount of time that you put in to

be successful.”

Despatie was named junior duathlete of the year in 2009 and has competed in three world championships, finishing fourth in his age group twice. “My favorite memories involving duathlon, would probably be the three world championships that I competed in so far,” said Despatie. “In particular the one in 2013, being that they were in Ottawa, where I had lived for four years prior while attending the University of Ottawa. It was a cool experience to compete in an event of that level so close to home.” Despatie said there is more to being an athlete than training. “There are a lot of other things that go into it. Planning, training, organizing equipment and constantly finding and looking for ways in which to make small improvements to all areas of Insert Photo: Matt Despatie during the 2013 Duathalon World racing and training,” said Despatie. Despatie asserts that support is a huge part of success for any athlete. “If I did not have such a great support team around me, I would never have been able to be successful as I have been. There is my coach Jeff Gibbs who I have complete confidence in. I never question or doubt my fitness level going into a race and always know I am totally prepared. My girlfriend Sarah plays a huge part in my success. Her patience and understanding of the time commitment I am required to make is extremely important, but also she is always there to talk me through the tough times that come with the sport. Be it pre-race nerves, a disappointing race or any challenge I have faced I know I can talk to her and she will help me get through it. My family has also played an important part. I know they are always behind me and have supported me in this sport 100 per cent. The support I received at races is also very important. In a sport that is so individual, in both training and racing, having a strong support group

Since volleyball began in Cornwall, it has grown and players are getting better. “I have noticed the caliber of play improve locally over the last few years. Kids and teens seem to be more interested in the game and some parents are looking for a physically stimulating sport without body contact and volleyball fits that criteria,” said Haley. “Beach and house leagues have started popping up again and we try to stay current and keep the volleyball enthusiasts aware of all things volleyball through our website.” The



programs run for either six or eight weeks and include 12 hours of instruction, a t-shirt, and constructive feedback to help improve the game. The competitive teams practice twice a week and must participate in two of the four OVA sanctioned tournaments in order to qualify for provincials. The OVA tournaments are once monthly in November, December, January and February and although it is a tiered system and movement is possible, many of the tournament sites have been East of Toronto as well as Kingston and Ottawa.

However the competitive teams are not co-ed and with a shortage of coaches can only offer a few teams. “We wish to expand but we need interested coaches to contact us.

I have a difficult time maintaining eye contact with the ball thru impact. I have a tendency to want to look out ahead of the swing. What can I do to eliminate this weakness?

I have a difficult time maintaining eye contact with the ball thru impact. I have a tendency to want to look out ahead of the swing. What can I do to eliminate this weakness?

One of the many challenges in golf is to avoid “looking up” too soon. Quite often this occurs because of being too anxious in your sing. Satay relaxed, free of tension, focusing more on target (green, fairway) and less on the ball. Slow everything down, right from the take away, as well as that slow transition from the top of your backswing into the downswing. Exude total confidence in your sing, allowing the head to be pulled up naturally as you ACCELERATE SMOOTHLY thru the ball. Maintain a steady head, radiating of a full balanced finish. Get your belt buckle facing the target as you make solid contact. Admiring a beautiful shot. You’ll be finding the fairway more often. Golf is a lot more fun from the “short grass”. Have a great day on the Links!

Believe it or not you don’t have to be looking at the ball to hit it! If that were the case visually impaired people couldn’t play golf... but they do. Many of them quite well in fact. I always cringe when I overhear golfers instructing other golfers to “keep you head down”. Often this will lead to one tucking in their chin which can lead to poor posture and actually impede a good turn. Instead the key is to maintain your spine angle throughout the swing. Often when one “looks up” they also straighten up, changing the spine angle or “tilt”. When this happens one must make a compensating move in order to strike the ball effectively. The problem is compensating during the swing is very difficult and often very inconsistent. A quick drill to ensure your spine angle is maintained throughout the golf swing is to be aware of the distance between your nose and the golf ball. This shouldn’t change during your takeaway, upswing or downswing. You can even do it with your eyes closed!!

Cornwall Multisport Club Profile: Joe McNamara: Solution For One, Solution For Many

or focus.” In 2003, he got himself another indoor trainer, but his hopes of something different were quickly trashed. Something had to change, and the idea of Turbo Crank was born.

By Derrick LoRusso

For some athletes, the challenge they seek is within themselves, a desire to see how far they can push and how much they can achieve. For others however, their effort to achieve their personal goals also benefits other athletes as well. Such is the case for Joe McNamara.

Everyone has an inspirational person that keeps them going, someone who encourages them to go for their goals. For McNamara, this inspiration wasn’t a who, but rather a what. “I was taking the classes at the local gym. I would bring my bike every Tuesday and Thursday in the winter, setting it up and doing the class, then putting everything back in the car to take it home,” he says. “It was quite a hassle.”

Since he was a young boy, Joe McNamara has been around bicycles, first learning to ride in his hometown of Brockville. “As a kid, I always had a bike,” says McNamara, “and would explore the neighbourhood and trails in the woods for fun on my BMX.”

This inspiration/motivation was the jumpstart that helped plan the initial stages of Turbo Crank, “I loved the workouts, but did not like all the transport to do them. So what I wanted was an instructor (the Turbo Crank program) for my home.”

It wasn’t until he got older, when he joined a cycling club in town, that he really became interested in competitive biking, but that wasn’t his only interest. “I tried my first triathlon in 1987, and quickly found out that swimming was not my thing,” he said, “so I decided to only do road racing and a bit later, mountain bike racing.” That same year, McNamara bought an indoor workout trainer, only to discover it was more of a labourintensive ride than a proper workout. “A 30-minute workout seemed like For Joe McNamara, the development of a workout software utility for an eternity,” he says, “but would cyclist was something he did for himself, but which now benefits many. tough it out without really any goals Photo by Bob Peters.

Over one weekend, McNamara was able to create the bare-bones version of his program. “In a couple of weeks I had a functioning workout and tested it with some friends.

A private branding deal with a company in Quebec has allowed the text to be translated, enabling workouts for the French market. There are many workout programs on the Internet, in a variety of prices. Every Canadian cyclist can relate to the obstacle of the winter months, and the inability to grab your bike and head out for a ride. McNamara hopes his will be the choice for every biker out there. “It will always be the solution I turn to for a great structured workout in the winter. As long as I am having fun.” Turbo Crank is available for download at beta/. The program cost $20, and is a one-time download.

Kayak Fishing an Interesting Alternative Submitted Article


s many folks that are into fishing may know, fishing from a kayak or kayak fishing has been growing tremendously in the past couple of years. Several T.V. networks have been broadcasting kayak fishing for a while now, showcasing different types of kayaks used, as well as different techniques used while fishing from a kayak. There are several fishing tournament series that now exist, that are exclusive to, or have divisions that are exclusive to kayak fishing, namely the IFA Kayak Fishing Tour in the US and the OKFS tournament series in western Ontario. In talking with Blair Bell at Hybrid Marine, he tries to sum up what you should know about the sport. “Kayak fishing is a great alternative to shore fishing or fishing from a power boat. Being in a kayak gets you to fishing spots that you can’t get to without a boat and the cost of buying a kayak is, more often than not, cheaper that buying a gas-powered fishing boat. Stealthy silence becomes your best friend when fishing the shallows from a kayak,” says Bell. Safety First: The key to having fun all starts with safety. A basic kayak safety lesson is always a good start to getting into the sport and knowing your level of physical fitness is important also. Always wear a PFD; it only works when you have it on. Know what your capabilities are before you venture too far away from shore as weather can sometimes change fast and being able to get off the river fast or knowing how to ride out a storm can be crucial. Always check the weather forecast before hitting the water and choose where you are going to fish accordingly.

Technique may be different:

Most techniques are similar when fishing from a kayak as compared to fishing from a powerboat. Depending on the kayak you’re using you may be able to stand up, but mostly you are fishing sitting down. Casting, drift jigging and still fishing from either vessel are pretty much the same but trolling is different, as with a kayak you have to paddle to move yourself forward, thus a rod holder is a necessity. The Hobie Mirage Drive Kayaks are a great way to go, as you can pedal them so you don’t have to paddle to move around and therefore are hands free for fishing. The nice thing about fishing from a kayak is that often you can fish spots that Kayak fishing is gaining in popularity, and it is easy to see why! Photo Hybrid Marine. you can’t get to with a powerboat provided by Blair Bell, typically smaller ponds or rivers. Don’t count out big water fishing from a kayak though, lots of folks fish on the ocean and other big bodies of water with their kayaks, just remember to know your personal capabilities to reduce the risk of putting yourself in danger. The healthy, environmental choice:


Suffice to say that fishing from a kayak requires no gas thus less pollution and more money in your pocket. Kayaking obviously is a human propulsion sport so working those muscles is mandatory, but provides you with outdoor exercise that can make you feel great both physically and mentally, not to mention the pleasures you will enjoy just being out amongst nature and quietly encompassing all it has to offer. If you would like more information on Kayak fishing or would like to rent a kayak to try it out contact the folks at Hybrid Marine Ltd in Summerstown, near South Lancaster (www.hybridmarine-ltd. com) 613 360 6501, they will be happy to assist you.

Chris Ayotte: Former Colt’s College Success

definitely been one of the highlights of my life so far.”

By Morley Seaver


or some, hockey is an education on its own. Chris Ayotte, however, piggybacked hockey with a formal education and excelled at both. The former Cornwall Colt has had an impressive junior and college career that got its start right in his hometown.

Ayotte says the educational aspect of the college really helped make the experience complete. “The school is just top notch,” he gushes. “There is a lot of importance placed on the scholastic part of things. It’s not just hockey-oriented. So when you’ve graduated, you really feel like you’ve accomplished something. I can’t say enough good things about the place and would really recommend it to players who were thinking about going the college route.”

“I was always playing hockey,” he remembers. “I played with a number of minor hockey teams in the area and for me, hockey was the greatest thing in the world.” Ayotte says that it was an honour to get to play part of his junior hockey career at home in Cornwall. “We would go to the rink and it would be full of aunts and uncles and grandparents and everybody and would just make it so much fun to play in front of everybody.” Unfortunately, the right-winger came onto the Colts with a roster of older, established players, making it harder to crack the top lines. “I was pretty much playing on the third and fourth lines,” he says. “My game is about scoring and I wasn’t able to show what I could do but I’m really grateful that I had the opportunity to expand my game and get some experience doing things I wasn’t part of previously. I learned a bit more of a grinding game and how to kill penalties and that kind of thing and it really filled out the number of things that I could be called on to do in a game. It was a valuable learning experience.” After a two-year stint with the Colts, Chris moved onto the Wellington Dukes where he was able to contribute with his considerable

Chris says that the close proximity to the school was also a plus for his many relatives who would make the short trek to watch games. “There were a lot of us from Canada there,” he laughs. “In my last year there, I think there was only one American. The rest of us were from Ontario, BC and all over.”

Chris Ayotte was never the biggest player on the ice, but that never stopped him from getting to where he wanted to go.

interest from Oswego State. Chris spent the next four years there and helped the Lakers climb back into the playoffs and really make some noise. During the four years he was there, the team sailed to an impressive record of 97-17-2. “We went to the Frozen Four, all four years,” he says, “and the last two years, we made it to From his noteworthy play in the national championship game. It’s Wellington, Ayotte generated some scoring talents. Seasons of 46 and 64 points followed. “That was a lot of fun playing in Wellington,” he recalls. “The coach, Marty Abrams, gave me lots of great opportunities and put me out there with some great players. He really put me in a position to excel. I had a terrific time playing there.”

“I still play a couple of times a week,” he says. “During the week, I do my serious playing and working out and then on the weekend, I get together with my buddies and we play in Massena.

ust when you thought the Cornwall River Kings had reached the end of the road, they find new life under new ownership and are set to return to the ice for the 2014-2015 season.

“Furthermore, I am fully aware that there are people in the City that want to see me fail; both for business and political reasons. My response to them is that not only is it a mathematical certainty that the River Kings will be a success but this negativity only pushes me harder to succeed. So with that being said, I must thank these individuals for their (lack of) support.”

The team introduced it’s new owner, local real estate agent and city council candidate Brock Frost, along with it’s coaching and management team at a media conference held at the Ramada Inn on Friday, June 13. Season Tickets subsequently went on sale the following Monday. Mitch Gagne was introduced as the team’s new general manager while Al Wagar and Rick Lalonde were introduced as personal advisors to Frost. While a coach hasn’t been named, it is thought that Lalonde will receive some consideration for the position. The team has also revealed a new logo, designed by VersaCore Tech Designs. The red white and blue logo, which features a crowned lion superimposed over two crossed hockey sticks, a maple leaf and the words Cornwall and River Kings represents the strength of the ownership, the power of the players and the roar of the fans. One reason for the failure of previous

In an effort to connect with local hockey fans, the River Kings have announced the formation of a booster club that will help organize and create community events in an effort to solidify the team’s presence in the community. A 15 member executive committee consisting of the team owner, the general manager, one player and 12 members of the community will guide the club.

ownership groups to sustain a hockey team in Cornwall has been attributed to a contract between the city and the Jr. “A” Cornwall Colts, which greatly restricts the ability of the River Kings to generate any advertising revenue within the Ed Lumley Arena was addressed by team owner Brock Frost. According to Frost, he doesn’t buy that excuse.

The first Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday, July 12 at 10 a.m. at the Civic Complex, where the group as a whole will elect the team’s first executive board. If interested in serving on the board, please email Mike Crowder at no later than July 9.

“The truth of the matter is however that the Colts are not responsible for the previous two seasons of failure. Rather, and quite bluntly, the Cornwall River Kings failed due to top-down

Keeping Active: Broomball Without Ice


There are approximately 30 young people who have decided to give summer Broomball a try this year in Crysler, and they seem to like what Photo by Tina McNairn. they’ve found.


roomball is a sport that many people have heard of, but which only a relatively small number (compared to other sports) have played. It is going through a bit of a renaissance, however, as parents look for a way for their kids to stay active without having to take out a second mortgage to finance the registration fees, equipment costs, training sessions and everything else that goes into playing a competitive sport. Even with Broomball, with it’s much shorter equipment list there are costs, and of course there is always the cost of renting the ice.

“This is the first year we have run “summer broomball” program and we are proudly running the program

According to McNairn, there are approximately 30 players involved, which enables them to create two teams that play against each other weekly. The program runs for two hours every Thursday night at the Crysler Arena. Each night consists of a half hour practice, an hour game and a half hour to play against parents. (“Parents that are brave enough to play, that is,” says McNairn. The cost is 50.00 for a nine-week program for the month of June and July for children aged 9-13 years of age. McNairn says they hope to run the program again next year should the interest remain. For

What’s different about JDL Powerskating? With all the powerskating instructors and hockey schools available, you are probably wondering why you should even consider coming to one of our camps. First of all,

you need to know that this is a technique driven camp. There will be some hard skating; however, the goal is for the players to learn sound technique first by breaking the stride down, before reintegrating it into fast skating and hockey situations. Students will be pushed to perfect their stride rather than just skating hard with the bad habits that they have formed over the years. Then they will practice skating with a puck to reinforce their skating stride in a hockey context. Skaters will also reintegrate their skills into fast-paced flow drills that will allow them to apply the skating to hockey situations. Furthermore, we have a highly trained staff of instructors that have gone through rigorous training to provide the best possible instruction.

What are people saying about their experience?

JDL Powerskating Camp is very unique and different than many other ice classes I have had experience with. The instructors are very interested in their students. Not only do they teach; they work with them to help them understand their stride. In a short period of time, you can see marked improvement that will go a long way in their skating steps for the future. Unique drills and interested instructors are the difference. They make it fun and challenging. The reward is great improvement. Jim Dorey Toronto Maple Leafs Skating is a skill that is an absolute must in the game of hockey. If you can’t skate, you will limit yourself within the game and whatever your goals and aspirations may be. J-D Lussier is an accomplished Power Skating Instructor capable of teaching minor hockey kids of all ages and skill levels. Our coaching staff contacted J-D to run a series of exclusive group sessions with the Cornwall Colts Atom hockey team designed to improve balance, agility & mobility; forward & backward strides; edge control; speed & power; quick starts & explosiveness from a static position; and efficient crossovers & tight turns. We as coaches were impressed with the on-ice product. J-D is an excellent communicator. He did commendable job of explaining and demonstrating each and every drill, and providing valuable feedback to the kids. After 6 hours on the ice, there were noticeable improvements in all areas. I highly recommend you enroll your child in a series of JDL Power Skating sessions and realize the noticeable improvement. Stan Hum, Assistant Coach - 2013-14 Cornwall Colts Atom Hockey Team “My 14-year old son is very big for his age and needed to improve his quickness and overall skating ability to make the jump from A to AA. After a week with J-D in the summer there was a notable improvement, and he’s made steady progress since then. His feet are quicker, his stride is more efficient and his overall speed has improved significantly. I highly recommend J-D Lussier’s instruction, regardless of your child’s age or ability.” Rod Smith, TSN

Our son, Connor, attended the J-D Lussier Power Skating Camp held in Cornwall Ontario this summer for the very first time. The camp was fantastic! The kids were pushed to learn new skills in a fun environment. At the camp, Connor received extremely high quality, individual skill instruction in power skating, and hockey fundamentals. The instructors did an excellent job for all kids at all skill levels. The lessons were fast-paced, and we were impressed with the amount of time the players spent moving and practicing what they’ve learned. Since the camp, we have noticed a considerable improvement in Connor’s balance, stride length and power. On the ice, he says he feels stronger and more confident. The coaches were friendly, very supportive, and encouraging. Connor really enjoyed spending time with J-D and his fellow instructors; they are such wonderful role models for young hockey players! They communicated well and really bonded with the boys. We were amazed at the respect our son developed for J-D and his coaches. He can’t stop telling his friends about J-D and all he learned. No matter your current level we believe that J-D will make you a faster and more efficient skater. J-D Lussier Power Skating Camp is a great place for young hockey players to work on their skating skills. It absolutely helped our son get to the next level in his hockey career. We highly recommend the camp to any hockey player. Thank you J-D for making your camp a wonderful hockey experience for our son. He will definitely be back again. Charlie & Shelly Cruickshank, Cornwall I am currently head coach of a Bantam AA hockey team in the GTHL. Over the years of coaching, I have been exposed to many different power skating programs. I was introduced to JD in Aug 2009 when my son was enrolled in a power skating camp in Kingston run by JD. I was so impressed with JD’s technique driven program that I contacted him immediately to come to Toronto to run private and semi private lessons for players on my team. The results of his program were immediate as those that attended improved their skating immensely. As well JD Lussier is a fantastic communicator that kids of all ages respond to. In my opinion, there is no question in my mind, that JDL power skating is the best power skating program available hands down. John Ord

Presents... The Games are Over: Bob Piteau By Gisele Grignon

had parades. We had the whole deal, bringing in crowds comparable to those at the Maxville Highland Games. It was always a great weekend.” The event grew so unwieldy ---taking six months to plan and prep--that the original organizers opted to hand it over to a downtown business organization. Originally from Windsor, Piteau settled in Cornwall as a boy and later worked for a subsidiary of Domtar Fine Paper, based in Ottawa. Though now retired, Piteau admits he “has a hard time just sitting around.” But he’s not above savouring some of his sporting highlights. “When I think of the Oldtimers, I think of how old hockey players got together and we got things done. We had a very good organisation, led by Ed Emerton, and Edgar Miron, and Pete Piquette our coach, who started as a goalie. These guys were the driving force behind the club.”


ot the rapt armchair-enjoyment of the beautiful game, not a very recent medical procedure, not even his concerned spouse’s cautioning over said health hurdle, could curtail Bob Piteau’s passion for sports and his community, nor his chance to share those dual lifelong passions. The former high school punter and flanker for the Cornwall Emards (run by long-time Cornwall Dr. Emard’s son Louis), was equally smitten by basketball, playing for a number of years in the city league. He was also a long-time basketball ref at the high school level. In the 1960s he played semi-pro lacrosse. But hockey, however, may have captured his heart, sticking with the game (as left-winger) until his mid sixties. He hesitates to name some of his hockey cohorts for fear of offending someone he may have temporarily forgotten, but goes on to list Bob Bingley, Neil Burke, and Mike Germain. They helped make up The Grand Drifters, playing exhibition games with the likes of the Flying Fathers. The Grand Drifters then became the foundation for the Cornwall Oldtimers Hockey Club in the late 70s and continues to this day. “We played all kinds of tournaments, from coast to coast and everything inbetween,” chuckles Piteau. The trip to Vancouver also allowed Piteau to visit with his brother Doug, who played pro with the BC Lions. Piteau went on to become the Cornwall hockey club’s president when he had to give up the game, a decision he didn’t take lightly. “When my playing days came to an end I really missed it, the camaraderie in the dressing room, all the guys I played

with for all those years.” The enthusiasm for sports spilled over into his community involvement. “The members of the (hockey team) would pick a different charity, such as the liver foundation at different times and support them. We built the hockey team and then helped build Camp Hideaway (near Long Sault), for the mentally challenged. Over the years, we probably put in $80,000 into that (charitable organisation).” The 74-year-old Piteau is also widely regarded as one of the fathers of the Cornwall Cornfest, along with the likes of Ron Quenneville, Gerry Delaney, Bob Bingley, Henri Gregain and Nick Haramis. “We just decided we were going to do it. That was in the late 70’s. We even got a farmer to grow our corn and we held it at the old Bob Turner and brought in bands and

In addition to his involvement in lacrosse, basketball, football, golf and hockey, Bob Piteau (fourth from left, with microphone) was instrumental in the creation of Cornfest, a Cornwall summer festival.

Hype Favorites To Repeat Flag Football Championship By Derrick LoRusso


amie Carr and Tony Joseph have collected three championship titles in the Cornwall Men’s Flag Football League (CMFFL), since 2001, and they are looking to stuff another championship under their belt this year. Steve McMillan, league president says these two players, and their teammates, are incredibly hot right now, “They are a true playoff tested team,” said McMillan in an email conversation earlier this month. Last season’s top three in the regular season standings will be the main obstacles to the Hype adding to their playoff history. The Pigskins, Black Adams Law and Bayshore will be more than ready to test Carr and Joseph. It is clear McMillan has faith in Joseph and Carr will make it a very competitive season. With a strong record behind them, and a tough competition in front, this season is going to turn out very big for any flag football fan. Being the favourite is nice, but you’ve still got to play the games.

The Hype, Cornwall Men’s Flag Football League champions last season, will be looking to hang onto the Supplied photo. crown this year.

This month we’ve asked our panelists to consider the FIFA World Cup, and the growth of soccer in North America. Here is the question we asked them to consider: The FIFA World Cup is currently underway in Brazil, and for people in many countries this is the world’s most important sporting event. In North America soccer is growing in popularity, but we still have a way to go to equal the passion displayed by our European cousins. Many people would still count the Super Bowl the World Series or the Stanley Cup Finals as more important, but interest in soccer seems to be growing. Are you more interested in this World Cup than you might have been in the past, and if so, why? Do you see a day when soccer would be number one for you? I can’t say that I am anything more than a casual soccer fan. I appreciate the athleticism of many of the athletes, but the “bad actors” and the tendency of some fans to take their support way beyond what any one would consider reasonable prevents me from really embracing it. Still, there are displays Canadian Press of true sportsmanship that make you want to watch Correspondent more, and the eye-foot coordination of some of the players is simply amazing. When a low-ranking team advances farther than expected or a favourite bows-out early, my attention span grows. Unfortunately, I don’t think I will ever truly be able to sink my teeth into it! Terry Tinkess

Jim Riddell

My wife Ilona was in Germany visiting family during the time of the World Cup. I was talking with her on the phone a few hours after Germany defeated the USA. I could hear horns in the background as motorists celebrated the victory. This would be happening throughout Germany. I remember Seaway Karate Club thinking, had the Americans won, the reaction would be minimal on the other side of the St. Lawrence. Soccer is the number one sport in every European country. In Canada it has gained popularity but factoring in the winter months and the multitude of North American sports that are tradition, its doubtful that soccer ever reaches the level of popularity it has in Europe. I have not been following the World Cup very closely and although soccer is a great game, it would never become my favourite. Robert Walker

Minor Hockey Coach

My interest in the World Cup has definitely increased over the past number of years. I have always enjoyed the game as a player, a coach and a fan. The increased coverage of the event has helped bring exposure and getting more people interested and being able to watch the games live certainly helps to understand the game and the passion of the fans. Although

the sport is growing in North America and is certainly less costly for parents, I do not think it will grow larger in popularity than hockey, football, baseball or basketball in Canada or the US simply because of the roots and traditions of those sports in our culture. However, it is nice to see that the beautiful game is getting good recognition and is enjoying wonderful growth.

Summer Drills

ell, summer is upon us once again and with it comes some challenges for the martial artist. After a long cold winter, most of us prefer the warmth and sunshine of the outdoors to sweating in a dojo. Seaway Karate like many other clubs shuts down during July and August. This frees our members up for other commitments and activities, returning to karate class in September rejuvenated. At our final class before we break for the summer, we provide the students with several drills, and exercises that will help to maintain the conditioning level and enhance their skills. These drills take about one minute each and most can be done almost anywhere. 1) Plank: There are several variations of planking, but let’s keep it simple to start. Get in a push-up position with your body weight on your toes, forearms and elbows. Keeping your back straight, hold for one minute. 2) Lower half squat: Assume your usual horse riding karate stance, then lower yourself as low as you can go keeping your back straight and not allowing your knees to extend over your toes. This is where you start. Now very slowly raise yourself up to the half-way point, then slowly lowering back down to your lowest position, repeating for at least one minute. 3) Balloon drill: Inflate a round balloon approximately half full. Now working your kicks, keep the balloon in the air without touching the ground for at least one minute. 4) Sticky kick drill: Focus on a door knob or other object of similar height – execute a front kick towards your target (never touching it) and when your leg is at full extension, hold it for a slow one thousand and one count. 10 reps, each leg. 5) Kick climbers: Visualize a training partner in front of you – throw a roundhouse kick at calf level, retract into a tight chamber, then throw another at thigh level, retract and repeat at belt level, then rib level returning your foot to the floor. That’s four kicks, one rep. Repeat three times and change legs. 6) Coin drill: Placing your feet in your normal fighting stance, place a coin on the back of your lead hand and extend it. With a quick upward motion toss the coin in the air, grabbing it with your other had using the same motion as if throwing a reverse punch or right cross. Work on these in the upcoming month - a few variations will appear in the next issue of Sports Energy.

Lancaster Perch Roll Then...


he Cornwall golf and Country Club commenced a junior golf program five years ago for children ages eight to eighteen. The program has now expanded to 120 children. With the assistance of many dedicated volunteers every Monday, this program has instilled in young golfers the etiquette of golf along with the basic rules of the game. Over the past couple of years the program has developed excellent golfers and this year we are honoured to have a

team of two girls and nine boys. The team will compete in the Canadian Professional Golf Association of Ottawa. On Saturday, June 28 the team competed in a tournament in Smiths Falls, Ontario. The team has been very fortunate to have the help of a great sponsor in the form of Tim Bertrand of RBC Wood Gundy. Our program operates every Monday morning throughout the summer, followed by a Fun Day tournament along with food and prizes for the children and their parents.

Now... “The taste that brings you back” “Le goût qui vous ramène”


pparently, back in the mid-1920’s, young Jack MacPherson wanted to get into the food business. He had a novel idea and a plan to implement it. He converted a small roadside gas station on Hwy. 2 in South Lancaster to include a restaurant, which he called Jack’s Place. It wasn’t grand by any means, but no matter. What Jack was banking on was the menu. This was what he believed would attract customers and keep them coming back. It featured the “fresh mulligan roll” (its original name), a generous portion of fresh Lancaster perch, guaranteed boneless, chopped and mixed with a secret sauce, tucked inside a toasted buttered roll. Later, Jack’s father, Duncan would fillet the fish using a gadget he’d developed. It featured the “fresh mulligan roll” (its original name), a generous portion of fresh Lancaster perch, guaranteed boneless, chopped and mixed with a secret sauce, tucked inside a toasted buttered roll. Later, Jack’s father, Duncan would fillet the fish using a gadget he’d developed. During those terrible depression years, if people could afford to treat themselves to a perch roll, they were indeed happy. This was the birth of the famous Lancaster Perch Roll and put Jack’s Place and South Lancaster on the culinary map. Here at BOURDEAU’s, we pay tribute to Jack by offering you our tantalizing version of this classic creation. In fact, it’s one of our specialties – certainly worthy of Mabel’s approval! So do your taste buds a favour and savour one (or two) today!

Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School and Scores presents...

Academics + Athletics = A Winning Combination

“Always MORE at SCORES”

Name: Sophie Contant Grade: 12 Sport: Hockey


ophie is a grade 12 student with exceptional skills as leader, as an athlete and as a student. She was the captain of the Holy Trinity CSS Girls hockey team and lead them to a 3rd consecutive EOSSAA appearance. She was chosen as captain for several reasons. Her athletic ability in hockey makes her one of the elite girl’s hockey players in the Cornwall and surrounding areas. As a result, she has accepted a scholarship to attend the University of Guelph of September 2014. Sophie is one of the rare students who can take her skill set and use it to lead and mentor the rest of her teammates who were several years younger without intimidating them. She was the team’s top scorer, scored the “key” goals when needed, is the team’s MVP and logged the most ice time, but this was never done with a “superior” type attitude or at the expense of making other teammates feel inferior. She always lead by example. As a coach, she was always humble which made her very “coachable” which is not always a characteristic in elite athletes. Sophie possesses this quality. She was always open to advice and strives to take her game to the next level. Above all, she does all of this while being respectful to her teachers and maintaining her schoolwork. Finally, she was awarded the top Junior (high school) Athlete in Cornwall at this year’s 50th Lion Clubs Award Banquet.
