hamps Eastside is proud to have qualified two boxers to the Canadian Nationals in March 2018 in Edmonton, Alberta. Mubeen Waheed, 14 years old, won the 50 kg junior boys (14-16 yr old division) by walk over. Brother Sahil Waheed in the 60 kg 16-18 year old boys open won his first bout against Chatham ON’s Cayden Arnot by unanimous decision. In the finals Sahil squared off with current Canadian Champ Spencer Wilcox. Experience and maturity proved the difference as 16 year old Sahil with 15 bouts against 18 year old Spencer with 50 bouts. However Sahil made a good account of himself and by placing 2nd still qualified for the Nationals. No shame here, Sahil boxed valiantly but learned much

from this bout. Sister Isha Waheed won the girls junior B (13-14 yr old 52 kg division) by walk over. Isha however caught everyone’s eye on Sunday morning at an open invitational women’s sparring. Thirteen year old Isha sparred girls 17 and 18 years old and the older girls had to give everything they had to keep the young dynamo at bay. Isha impressed everyone present as a young lady and talent to watch in the future. Last but not least the story of the weekend was a comeback performance by Joey Bowman, once two-time Canadian Champ who had not fought in since 2007. In his first fight Joey boxed Matt Milligan of Warriors Boxing. Joey shook off some ring rust and outpunched and out classed his younger opponent. In his second bout against Peter

split decision. Joe was the aggressor throughout against Carlito Reyes of Windsor and most felt he won. Joe was unable to box for Bronze on Sunday due to an eye injury. We are extremely proud of Joe and happy to have him back.

Marie Beckstead

Marie was born in Brockville but lived in old Morrisburg before the Seaway. Her Mom was from England, and in the British Air Force, when she met Marie’s Dad who was in the Canadian Army. They married and came to Canada after the war. Marie’s Dad was a carpenter. Marie attended Iroquois High School and Osnabruck District High School. Marie started her working career at Odonto in Morrisburg making toothbrushes. She married and had three sons, James, David, and Jeffery. She changed jobs and worked, for thirtyfive years, at Beaver Dental Products manufacturing dental burrs. Marie is a woodworker, like her Dad. She has donated love benches to the seniors’ centres in Ingleside and Williamsburg, made jewellery boxes, lawn furniture, bird houses, and refurbished her kitchen using reclaimed wood. Marie also volunteers as a driver for the Senior Support Centre in Ingleside. Starting in high school Marie enjoyed sports. She played basketball

first, then started curling with friends from work, and bowled in Ingleside. Then co-worker, Dawna, got Marie interested in golf at Cedar Glen in Williamsburg. She met golfer, Ann Cook, at the course. Ann introduced Marie to OSGA. Marie played in her first District 8 Golf Tournament in Alexandria where she won a gold medal. This qualified her to play in the Provincial Games in London where she won a silver medal. Next she competed in the 2010 Canada Games where she won a bronze medal. Very impressive for her first try. Marie made a wooden shadow box to proudly display her three medals. Marie was enjoying her OSGA sports experience so she decided to join the District 8 Board. She is presently the treasurer and convenor for snooker and billiards. In the past Marie has enjoyed competing in both summer and winter events by playing euchre, bid euchre, cribbage, and bocce. She plays floor shuffleboard and carpet bowling on a weekly basis and also competes in these OSGA events. Marie believes in getting full value for her annual membership of $15. She participates in as many sports as she likes in both the summer and winter events – for the one membership fee. Quite a bargain! A quote from Marie, “Being a member of the Ontario Senior Games Association has allowed me to meet a lot of very nice people, both locally and all over the province and even Canada. I ask you to become a member to join in the fun. Continue being active or become active again for the fun of it.” To learn more about OSGA please follow us on Facebook at OSGA 55+District 8 – SD&G, Prescott, Russell, and Akwesasne or contact District Coordinator, Marlene Neal at
