ou’d think tricks with names like The Front Flip Loop, Air Screw and Vertical Cartwheel, would be tough enough in the air as part of a gymnastics routine, or even on the ground as part of a skateboarding routine. Now picture tackling those same gravity- defying, human pretzelcreating stunts in the water. Tucked into a canoe. Navigating merciless rapids. Not exactly something you’d attempt after a heavy lunch, admits Cornwall’s Zackary Zwanenburg.

It’s that rush that first attracted him to the sport of kayaking, at a time when most Canadian 7 year-olds are lacing up hockey skates or soccer cleats. “My first time kayaking was on the Ottawa River near Beachburg. It was so exciting going down some white water. I just really loved the rush.”

And it’s that same rush that’s kept the now 17 year-old not only perfecting his kayaking skills but also his canoeing talents too. So much so that, Zachary, under the watchful tutelage and encouragement of his dad who also competed as a youth, “You do get dizzy after a while, but earned spots on both of the Junior it’s a great rush,” says Zwanenburg.

teams. That coup came courtesy of his efforts at the 2013 Kayak and Slalom National Team Trials held the May 25 weekend on the Gull River in Minden, ON. Now, Zachary, who’s considering a career in civil engineering if a pro career on the water doesn’t pan out, is focusing on doing well in senior freestyle (next year) in the hopes it’s included in the Olympics. For the slalom discipline, he’s aiming for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. Training for those events, as for the upcoming Worlds in Slovakia (Zachary’s first overseas competition), includes “a lot of core work, crunches and sit-ups”, explains Zachary and “lots of running and jogging,” which all adds up to about five hours a day, during the summer. That timeconsuming element, he admits, is the one downside to competing in two disciplines. “But the rewards more than make up for it,” he quickly adds. “And in the winter I’ve got lots of time to spend with my friends and family and for snowboarding.” That’s good because the next few months won’t allow for much of anything other than training, travelling and time-zone adjustments. Here’s just a peek at Zachary’s commitments: June 29: Leave Cornwall for onsite training in Slovakia (along with Continued on page 3

Partnership Result Of Being A Fan Of The Sport By Tammy Larin


ince first opening in 1970, The Cornwall Motor Speedway (CMS) has been a Sunday evening ritual for many dedicated racing fans. Being just a fan wasn’t enough for Giant Tiger store owner, Gerry Oszczakiewicz. He raced at the quarter mile dirt track from 2005-2010 in the mini stock car series.

Although he no longer races, Oszczakiewicz is still a big supporter and sponsor of the Cornwall Motor Speedway, and is also a sponsor and co-owner of the Giant Tiger sportsman car Giant Tiger sportsman car was on display recently at the grand opening of the recently renovated Giant Tiger store on Pitt Street.

Well, looks like my source was correct By Richard Waldroff

The change regarding checking that I suggested would be taking place has occurred with the recent vote at the Hockey Canada AGM. I am picking up pros and cons on the issue, with most of the focus on the safety aspect of the game. I have seen some of the statistics about the occurrences of medical injury and concussion. The numbers are very strong supporting the action which has taken place. Our neighbours all around us have gone in this direction, so when you leave the local area regardless where you go, USA, Ontario or Quebec similar standards will apply. The differences will be, as with all rules, in INTERPRETATION and APPLICATION. As is the case with all sports what is or is not permitted at home will not necessarily apply away. I see this change as just that: a change. It was voted on without any offer of how it will all work, what will be the impact on the game and most importantly the players in the future. Again, it would appear to be a knee jerk reaction to outside pressures, or was it a situation such as “we have discussed it long enough, time for action.” Yes, it had been discussed, several pilots have been completed and results analyzed, so should this not be enough? Well, what will happen when players enter the Bantam level? Will this simply add to the pressures on players this age, and add to the decline at the level? One individual indicated to me that in a very few years the same conditions will be voted in at Bantam and if you are going that far, why not Midget as well. I think back to the removal of the two line pass. I don’t think any of us thought that it would speed up the game to the level it has. The original belief was that it would reduce the number of whistles, and therefore provide for reduced loss of ice time for younger players. It has never ceased to amaze me as to how fast our students of the game learn and adapt to the changes which are introduced to them. Players fly down the ice well ahead of the puck, angling for that lead pass, that’s the speed I refer to. Now, no checking will increase the speed even more. I hope we all can stop at the other end. Folks, please don’t scream and yell at the officials during the upcoming season for it will take a bit of time to separate checking from incidental contact. Keep your stick below your waist.

The Stanley Cup Playoffs now have only four teams remaining. For some fans, it has been a very exciting and enjoyable time, but for others it has been a period of sadness and frustration. In some of the series things have worked out pretty much as could be expected, but in others the winning team has been a big surprise. In your opinion what has been the biggest surprise so far in the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs? Terry Tinkess

The Canadian Press

Jim Riddell

Seaway Karate Club Robert Walker

Minor Hockey Coach

There have been a number of surprises so far. That the Toronto Maple Leafs pushed the Boston Bruins to seven games and were poised for the upset before completely collapsing was for me the biggest surprise. So close and yet so far! The rivalry that developed between Ottawa and Montreal was not a surprise in that it happened, just that it happened so quickly and to such an extreme. There was some genuine hate involved! There have been so many examples of just how close all the teams are at this point in the season. But for a deflection it would be the Detroit Red Wings playing L.A. rather than Chicago. The four that remain all deserve to be there and any one of then could end up hoisting the cup. I don’t think that we have had any major upsets this year, as the remaining teams, L.A., Boston, Chicago, and Pittsburgh are the Stanley Cup winners from the past four seasons. There have been a few surprises and disappointments. Most of us expected more from the Vancouver Canucks; San Jose swept them in the first round. The Ottawa Senators, having injuries to many of their best players over the regular season, managed to eliminate the second-seeded Montreal Canadiens. The biggest surprise may have been the Boston Bruin’s comeback in game seven against the Leafs. Trailing by three goals in the third period, they managed to score two in the final two minutes to tie the game, and then win it in overtime. The most surprising thing about the playoffs for me so far had been the inconsistent level of refereeing. I know that there will always be controversial calls and that is part of the human element, however, I don’t recall seeing so many obvious calls missed or phantom calls being made. I am not referring to the video replays that endlessly break down plays and calls but plays that happen during game speed that you can tell are either a penalty that warrants a call or not and it seems that the opposite happens and then everyone from the player, to the coach, to the fan is confused. I know that it is an extremely challenging job and that the referees are reacting in split-seconds, however, I think the NHL should provide better direction and support so that there it’s more consistency for the players and the fans.

Senior Baseball Team Off to a Good Start By Terry Tinkess


n the movie Field of Dreams, Shoeless Joe Jackson tells Kevin Costner’s character, farmer Ray Kinsella, that if he turns his corn field into a baseball diamond, a bunch of long-dead ghost baseball greats will come to play there. In Cornwall, if you were a player who had outgrown Little League, you had a ghost of a chance of finding a place to play. This year that changed, thanks to John Flanigan and a lot of interested senioraged players. “There was a league in Ottawa,” says Flanigan, “and we thought, why not put a team in it?” That’s how the 2013 version of the Cornwall River Rats, a team in the National Capital Baseball league came to be. You might think that with no existing local league it might be difficult to find players willing to play half their season at least a half-hour’s drive away, but Flanigan says he had no problem recruiting players “There was a lot of interest,” says Flanigan. “I had at least 50 guys contact me by phone or email.” At this age level, it is important to have more than enough players looking to play. “Everybody either has a full-time job or a part-time job for the summer,” says Flanigan. “We’re allowed to put 25 guys on the roster but I only take twelve to a game. I basically have 12 or 13 regulars and I draw from the spare list when I need them.” The team got of to a very good start in their first game, which came against Winchester. “The very first pitch in the

Athletics pitcher had a good move to first but not close enough to pickPhoto by Terry Tinkess off Matt Jennak,

first game in franchise history was a homerun,” chuckles Flanigan. You can’t start any better than that! The player who hit the home run? Matt Jennack, a catcher from Massena, New York. “We tied our first game 2-2 and won our second game 2-1, so we obviously have good pitching,” says Flanigan. “We haven’t had a lot of hitting.” Pitching for the River Rats are Jay Flanigan and Dylan Casselman (both pitched for the Cornwall Black Sox when they went to the Little League World Series), as well as Tyler St. Denis and Tanner Casselman. It isn’t all about the guys either. Jenna Flanigan, John’s daughter who also plays for the Canadian National Women’s Baseball Team, is a member of the River Rats as well. The NCBL is a competitive league. There are four tiers. Normally a team would start at tier four and work its way

up. Cornwall applied for tier two, based on what their lineup was. “We probably could have started at tier one, but they like you to start down and work your way up,” says Flanigan. “Being it’s our first year in the league, we’re in tier two.” There is definitely motivation to do well There are nine teams in tier two, and they play a 24 game regular schedule. The top team will move up to tier one next year while the bottom team will move down to tier three. Many adults with an interest in baseball develop it as a result of their kids being involved, but for John Flanigan, it has been a life-long interest. “I’ve played ball since I was eight or nine years old. Baseball has always been my sport.” Interest in baseball across Canada has been on the downturn in recent years for a number of reasons. The loss of the Montreal Expos played a part, but there are also so many other sports competing

for a young person’s interest as well. According to Flanigan, if you can manage to get their interest, you have a good chance of hanging on to them. “I think what happens with kids is that if they are given a chance to play baseball, they really enjoy it, but a lot of the time what happens is that parents put their kids in soccer or summer hockey, thinking that they will get more exercise, but the kids that do play, they really enjoy it. “It’s just a matter of getting them into it.” While getting a team formed and onto the field is an accomplishment, according to Flanigan it is just the first step. “Because I had 50 players contact me, there were obviously a lot who were disappointed in not making the team,” says Flanigan. “I’m hoping that it could evolve into a town league where we could have four teams of our own. We would still have a team in the Ottawa league, but for the guys that don’t make that team, or have as much playing time on that team as they would like, they would still have a league here in town to play in.” Another option would be to form a second team to play in the Ottawa league, one tier down from the current group. “It just takes someone with the time and the interest to get it organized and get it going,” says Flanigan. At the time of this writing, the River Rats have played only three games, winning two and tying one, the weather seemingly the only thing they couldn’t master. There is still lots of time left in the season, however to find a way into that top-spot that would allow them to move into tier one next season. As all good teams understand, you have to show you can go the distance.

Presents...Cornwall Royals Edition Then and Now...Mario Vien:

Switching Position Equals Great Career Move By Morley Seaver


ans of the Cornwall Royal’s star goalie Mario Vien can thank his teammate for providing the opportunity to shine. Yvon Disotell, later a skilled forward with the Royals, started out as a goalie in minor hockey while Vien was a forward. During a game Disotell took a hard shot to the head which shook him up.

It’s destiny.”

At 15, Vien found himself starting the first game of the 1971 season, after being invited to training camp by GM Norm Baril. “I guess it was a tough year for goalies on the Royals that year,” says Vien, “so I got a great opportunity. I started the first game in Quebec City against the Remparts. Our captain was Mike Ruest at the time. We got beat 8-1 but they won the Memorial Cup that year so it was not a big surprise, I guess. I only played a few games that year since I was playing Junior B Royals at the same time.”

“Yvon was very good,” remembers Vien. “He was one of our top goalies but the old masks we used to have then were not very good. After he got hurt, he decided he didn’t want Vien remembers being lucky to be a goalie anymore and went as a enough to watch Richard Brodeur up forward so I decided to take his place close and observe his work ethic.

Mario Vien, Cornwall Royals 1974 / 75 Season

Earlier in the playoffs we had lost our captain, Bob Murray, with a broken leg against Sorel in the semi-finals. I’m sure he would have been a big help.”

Vien was drafted by both the LA Kings and Toronto Toros of the WHA in 1975, and signed with the Toros, playing with NHL stars like Paul Henderson. “Well, at the time I looked at the options,” he remembers, “and they were offering a very good chance of making the lineup compared to LA. In LA, you never knew if you would end up in the

minor leagues. But with the WHA, you had a better chance of cracking the lineup and that’s what happened, I did.” After retiring from hockey, Vien went to work at Domtar Fine Papers. His memories of playing days with the Royals are still vivid. “Winning the MVP of the QMJHL was a real honor,” he admits. “But best of all was playing with all my friends that I grew up with. Guys like Mike Conway, and Yvon Disotell…so many great guys. And I loved playing in Cornwall. It was always a great place to be.”

Making Sense Out Of Numbers Pointstreak as the official scorekeeper for the Cornwall Colts for eight years. Several years ago when his daughter used to sing the national anthem before games, Prevost would help out where needed. “I have always been into hockey and computers and I like statistics, so it was a natural blend,” said Prevost, who adds that it is a great behind the scenes job. “These kids are trying to get into college,” said Prevost. “It is great to have accurate stats for them.” Pointstreak is the system used by many sports leagues to record both individual and team statistics. In 2000 Pointstreak established electronic game sheets, replacing slower paper game sheets revolutionizing the way sports statistics were recorded and conveyed. In 2008, Pointstreak incorporated their existing statistical solutions with two new systems again revolutionizing sports league management. The two new systems included an online registration and payment system, and a website content management system. Pointstreak started by concentrating on the sport of hockey and has since expanded to lacrosse, soccer, and baseball. Pointstreak also has available to its athletes a Facebook type free

now complete, movement is automatic, smooth and precise. The development of muscle memory is one of the reasons why it takes such a long time to achieve a high level in a martial art. Muscle memory is something that we seem to retain after long periods of not performing a particular skill. I have seen people return to karate after several years, or even decades away from the sport believing that they had forgotten most of what they knew. They are usually quite surprised to find themselves right back where they left off within a few months of resuming training. Whether your goal is to win trophies performing kata in a tournament, or to protect yourself in a self-defence situation, muscle memory is of the utmost importance to a martial artist.

My best hockey memory so far has been a tournament in Boston, Massachusetts, in which we had won first place and had won the tournament undefeated. At this time, I played for the Plattsburgh Roadrunners. I knew very few players on that team as the weekend began but as the tournament progressed I grew to know more and more through on-ice action. This was my best memory because we had a great team and we all played with a lot of heart and won every game that whole year. We then left that tournament as undefeated champions.

Guided Fishing Tours Ensure Pleasurable Experience

well as the Townsend fish skinner. Lauzon is particularly fond of the latter. “My dad is always so proud to take a few home with him to South Carolina as they don’t have them down there,” says Lauzon.

eems we in Eastern Ontario have gone directly from winter to summer. Although that might seem dandy for some, it is causing a few issues for local fishermen. With Mother Nature’s tardiness this year, the season is off to a late start and one must expect the fish to be on a pattern just a tad behind as well.

“The Townsend fish skinner works particularly well on small narrow fish like perch. It helps to remove skin without losing any of the meat,” he explains.

Walleye are finishing up spawning a little late and are still on the shoreline. If the weather patterns don’t change soon, bass will still be spawning as well on their opening weekend. That being the case,Adam Lauzon of ‘Fence Depot: Cornwall’s #1 Fishing and Hunting Store’ recommends it will be “best to practice a catch and release at that time. For the novice fisherman, Lauzon advises a good way to tell is if the bass have big bloated stomachs, as this means they haven’t laid their eggs yet. Fence Depot now offers a fishing guide service, which operates all year, for all game subject, of course to which season is currently open. Depending on what each individual angler is looking for, Fence Depot will cater the service to accommodate all levels of experience. From the novice to the seasoned professional they offer everything from the bare minimum to an all-out, full-service, everything you could possibly need, guided adventure. This is a new service and Lauzon is very excited about the opportunity to provide this service to the community.

The St. Lawrence is blessed with a great variety of species, the most popular in the Cornwall area being Walleye, Bass, Northern Pike and Muskie. Lauzon says they will soon be able to do carp and salmon as well. Tours usually run four or six hours depending, of course on what each particular group or individual is looking for. If you are booking a

fully catered service, Fence Depot will provide everything you could possibly need, even including a mustang suit, for those who use the service in fall or for ice fishing.

As for challenges fishermen face this year, there have been some changes in zone 18 that anglers need to beware of. These changes were made to control the spread of viral hemorrhagic septicemia (VHS) which was recently discovered in fish from the lower Great lakes. VHS is of no threat to human health, but it has been linked to the die-offs of at least four different species of fish. In order to control this issue, anglers are asked to observe necessary restrictions on the transport and use of live bait. For zone 18 that means live bait fish can be harvested and used but they can’t be transported north of the fisheries management zones. Fishing is definitely a fun and exciting experience, especially for first timers. It would be wise to use a guide for your first few outings to make sure you are following all the rules and getting the most of your experience.

Local Amateur Hockey Name Change Approved By Staff


t lasted since 1920, but now the Ottawa District Hockey Association (ODHA) has adopted a name change that will be more consistent with what other associations across the country are using. The new name, Hockey Eastern Ontario was adopted as a result of a motion passed by delegates

at the ODHA Annual General Meeting, which was held on June 8, 2013. It is believed that the new name will clearly define the area serviced and will provide for increased marketability and branding opportunities.

ODHA has jurisdiction over that part of Ontario lying East of, and including the counties of Lanark, Renfrew, and all of Leeds (except the town of Gananoque and the portion of Highway No. 32 and south of Highway No.15 in the Province of Ontario.

Fundraising Event

Saturday, July 6th

By David Murphy

The first season on Sports Energy TV on TV Cogeco is in the books. Thanks to Mike Piquette, I’ve had another opportunity to work with the talented Cogeco production crew including Calvin Killoran, Chris Rhode, Gabriel Riviere-Reid, Bill Makinson and the rest of the team behind the scenes. We ran two shows per month since last September. Regular contributors have been Scott Rogers and Thom Racine. Guests have included Tony Luis, Jorge Luis, Kirby Camplin, Rod McLeod, Brian Mulligan, Herm Rogalsky, Graham Greer, Shawna Mecteau, Wayne Thompson, Gilles Gibeau, Al Wagar, Rick Lalonde, Mayor Bob Kilger and MPP Jim McDonell (politicians are allowed their sports views).

Thanks to the guests without whom the show doesn’t exist. All the guests added their own personality to ensure a high entertainment value and water cooler talk around the workplace in Cornwall and area.

The spectrum of sports related topics included a focus on local from hockey, football, lacrosse, boxing, MMA, racing, softball and everything in between. The goal of the show is to bring the pages of Sports Energy’s monthly paper to life. I believe we’ve accomplished that several times over and in an entertaining way. We appreciate the listener feedback and hope you continue to let us know what you think. While we’ll be taking a summer sabbatical, we’ll continue to use your suggestions for future shows. After all, we could have the best production and most entertaining guests but it doesn’t work without you, the viewer. On behalf of the entire crew, guests and producers thank you for a great first season. Enjoy your summer.

Still no matter how accommodating a club like Summerheights strives to be, there’s no escaping reality.

To Stretch or Not to Stretch …

Why your pre-game stretching regime could be hindering performance and increasing your risk of injury! Dr. Kylie Draper BMSc, DipAc, DC of Cornwall Spine Care Plus

bringing muscles and joints through active ranges of motion via swift, controlled movements. This type of stretching is used to improve blood flow, temperature, range of motion and potential power output. Research has illustrated that dynamic activation prior to a workout, better prepares your body for the more intense exercise that follows. This is not only because dynamic activation warms up the muscles and joints but because this type of stretching increases excitatory signals from the brain to the muscle (and vice versa) priming the body for optimal performance.

can help decrease muscle tension, reduce pain and improve range of motion. The catch is that you need to understand what kind of stretching to do and when to do it. The two major types of stretching we will look at in this article are static stretching and dynamic activation stretching. Static Stretching


recently had a patient limp in to my office with a badly strained quadriceps muscle. He had been playing baseball and while sprinting to first base he felt an ‘agonizing pull’ in his anterior thigh. During our examination of the limb the patient exclaimed, “I just don’t get it Doc, I made sure to stretch before the game. I mean, I really, really stretched!” He was very confused when I informed him that his pregame static stretching regime was likely to have encouraged his injury! “He was very confused when I informed him that his pre-game static stretching regime was likely to have encouraged his injury!” There are many benefits to stretching. When done properly it


Static stretching involves slowly lengthening a muscle to an elongated position and holding this fixed position for a prolonged period of time, usually 20-30 seconds. Traditionally, static stretching was a main element of the pre-event warm-up. Recent studies have shown, however, that static stretching prior to activity limits your power output and results in a neuromuscular inhibitory response in muscles. This means your muscles do not operate as efficiently or optimally as they should after being “stretched out”. This can have a detrimental effect on performance and can also lead to an increased risk of injury.

“There is a time and a place for both types of stretching” This does not mean that holding your muscles in a fix positions for a prolonged period of time (static stretching) is a negative thing. There is a time and a place for both types of stretching. The emerging opinion about stretching in the scientific community is that athletes should engage in dynamic activation prior to a workout and use static stretching after their cool down. When your work out is complete and you have done a proper active recovery, there are significant benefits to static stretching. The benefits of static stretching include muscles relaxation, calming of the nervous system and a reduction of

muscular tension. “Athletes should engage in dynamic activation prior to a workout and use static stretching after their cool down.”

This is something to consider for all athletes both recreational and professional. No one wishes to inhibit performance or increase their risk of injury because they are stretching incorrectly. To learn more about proper warm up drills visit my website at or book a consultation with one of our doctors of chiropractic. Sports injuries occur for many reasons. Proper stretching and warm- up are not the only factor involved in injury prevention. It is important to note that most injuries do not resolve spontaneously. Proper treatment and rehabilitation is necessary. If you have suffered a sport injury please contact the experts at Cornwall Spine Care Plus to ensure you are getting the best treatment and rehabilitation.

Presents... The Games Are Over, The Memories Live On


Former Cornwall Royals Owner Norm Baril: “You’d have to put me in the ‘hate to lose’ column.” By Morley Seaver


inning a Memorial Cup with a mere nine years of hockey experience has to rank as a great accomplishment. When you consider prior to that, the guy who owned and operated the team was running a hardware store, without any knowledge of local talent, it’s even more impressive. Norm Baril was hard at work one day when the owner of the local junior hockey team, Red Lascelle, stopped by make him an offer to become part owner. Baril agreed with the provision that he would also become general manager. “I’m a firm believer in local talent,” he declares. “I wasn’t familiar with the area players when I started but when I landed into it, I just got up to speed pretty quick. I thought our guys were just as good. And to prove that point, Sam Pollock of the Montreal Canadians used to be up here scouting all the time. So if they were good enough to go to Montreal, they were good enough to play here.”
