FIDDLE & STEPDANCE CHAMPIONSHIPS

Canada Day weekend in the park

The 33rd Annual Southwestern Ontario Fiddle & Stepdance Championship was another year of three's. Greg Henry of Corunna won the Open Fiddle category for the third year in a row; Diana and Andrew Dawydchak of Etobicoke won the Duet Fiddle class for their third year; and All Reel Drive, a trio from the Sebringville area won their third Open Group Stepdance trophy. "Our competitor numbers were approximately the same as last year, but we had a lot of new competitors this year that had never competed in contests before and that is encouraging," said Marianne Huitema, competition secretary. Top fiddler Greg Henry took home the Graham Townsend Trophy and $1,000 as well as the new Don Carswell Memorial Waltz Award and $200 as the Open Fiddler with the highest points awarded for his waltz. Greg, who works at a refinery in Sarnia, has been taking home awards from the Tavistock event for the past 10 years. He was second in 2012, third in 2007, 2008 and 2009, and fifth in 2013 and 2006. Greg has also been successful in

the Duet Fiddle category taking home first place with Tom Fitzgerald in 2012 and 2013; and with Chuck Joyce in 2005 and 2006. In the group of seasoned fiddlers making it to the Open final this year were Celine Murray of Dorchester in second place earning $800 and the Ed Gyurki Trophy, Paul Lemelin of Val Therese in third with the Bickle Farms Trophy and $600, Emily Yarascavitch of Oshawa in fourth winning $400, and Andrew Dawydchak of Etobicoke in fifth taking home $200. Andrew Dawydchak and his sister, Diana, also won the Duet Fiddle class for the third year in a row. They won the Bob and Betty Tanner Trophy and $300. Emma and Will March of Pembroke were second winning the Cook Family Trophy and $200, Samuel and Jackson Corry of Red Deer, Alberta were third winning $150, and fourth place went to Fiona McCairley and Cassandra Swan of Kitchener receiving $100. On the stepdancing side of the competition, Becky Reid of Arnprior won top marks over the full slate of competitors in the Open category. It was quite a feat

BILL GLADDING / TAVISTOCK GAZETTE

Greg Henry won the Open Fiddle category for the third straight year while Becky Reid won her first Open Stepdance championship here in Tavistock this past weekend. Both earned $1,000. for the 33-year-old mother who is currently 5-months pregnant and due in November. Her 8-year-old daughter, Addison, was extremely excited about her mother's win, the $1,000 prize money and the Cliff Adams Memorial Trophy. “We’re rich!” Addison exclaimed as her mother came off the stage with the prize. Second place, the CJCS Trophy and $800, went to Charlotte Clare of Orangeville; third place to Emma March of Pembroke; and fourth place to Courtney Rosso of London; and fifth place to Chelsea Mott of Stratford. All Reel Drive, the trio of Miranda DeWetering, Katie Paradis and Katie Luckhardt also won their third straight Open Group Stepdance championship.

The girls, from the Sebringville and Mitchell area were given top marks in the class, $500 to share and the Nieberlein Family Trophy. Second place, the Korner Shoppe Trophy and $400 went to The Reel Deal - Maria Peppler, Grace Laceby and Charlotte Clare, all of Orangeville; third place of $300 went to All About That Step from Chelmsford; and fourth place of $150 to Tavistock's own Danen Quad. Miranda DeWetering also took home the 19 to 29 years of age Stepdance trophy for the second year in a row, placing second in 2014. This earned her the Larry Stacey Trophy. Every category was full this year with prizes up to 8th place in the 12 and under and 9 and under

categories. The youngest fiddler in the competition this year was 6-year-old Adlai Martin of Waterloo. The youngest stepdancer was Jannie Lemelin, 4, of Val Therese. Judges for the weekend competition included Ian Hamilton, Tyler Beckett and Scott Woods for the fiddle classes and Tiffany Fewster Salt, Sarajayne Dekker, and Chad Wolfe for the stepdancers. It was quite a sight to watch a pregnant Tiffany Fewster Salt as she danced with the other stepdance judges as they opened the Saturday evening show. Her baby is due in two weeks; plus she is scheduled to judge the upcoming Dorchester contest in four weeks. Next year’s contest is June 30th and July 1st.

Tavistock Public School (TPS) will see some big changes next year. After five years as Principal, Mrs. Laurie James will be moving on to Central Public School,Woodstock. At the year-end assembly on Wednesday morning, June 29, 2016, Mrs. James said, “What a special place TPS is. You don’t realize,

it’s absolutely phenomenal … not only the staff, but the parents, students and volunteers. They want you to achieve and they give you the opportunity to do the best you can.” Mrs. James taught for her first 10 years at Tavistock School before moving on to serve other communities. She has 6 years remaining before

retirement. “If I say my prayers and find a four-leaf clover, maybe I can come back,” she said. For the remainder of the day she asked for tissues and “lots of hugs.” Nicola Bankes, who has served at Plattsville Public School will be the new Principal. (more on page 6)

The Tavistock Juniors are, from the left, kneeling: Justin Wagler, Travis Hyde, Bryn Wagler, Jake Wiffen, Deven Kropf, Travis Ramseyer, Angus Rowland, Carson Lamond; standing: Coach Paul Hyde, Dylan Taylor, Derek Wagler, Liam Laforest, Tristan Hohl, Jesse Deweerd, Alex Vandervoort, Tyson Zehr, Derek Hyde, Coach Chad Harmer, and Coach Kevin Zehr. The Tavistock Juniors are poised to host the 2016 U21 Men’s Canadian Fastpitch Championship in Tavistock from August 2-7, 2016. Although they are a Junior team, they will be playing against men’s teams from all over the country. Leading up to the tournament the team has made it to the finals in all four of their tournaments to date. They won the Peter Hallman Memorial Junior shoot out two weeks ago and finished fourth at the Provincials this past

weekend. As a result of the Provincial Eliminations, New Hamburg will be Ontario 1; Stratford will be Ontario 2; and Oshawa will be Ontario 3, joining the host Tavistock Juniors at the National Championship. With two teams from communities so close to Tavistock “this will certainly increase attendance throughout the day making the need for volunteers even more crucial,” said coach Zehr. Next week the Juniors

play the Czech Republic Jr. National team in Tavistock. They then play in the Cephas Roth Tournament in Tavistock starting Thursday, July 14 against the New York Gremlins.

Friday they play the Scarborough Force. These are two of the top five men’s teams in the world. Monday, Tavistock will play the Australian National Jr. team in Milverton at 7 p.m. Only 3-1/2 weeks remain and things are gearing up for the Nationals in Tavistock August 2-7. “We are expecting a very high fan turn out. We are very excited,” said co-coach Chad Harmer. The team is sponsored by Aberfoyle Snowmobile Ltd., Guelph. Good luck boys!

BRINGING WILD ONTARIO TO THE TAVISTOCK FAIR

The Tavistock & Area Horticultural Society will be bringing Wild Ontario to the Tavistock Fall Fair on Saturday, September 10th from 1:30-4:30 p.m. in the Queen’s Park Pavilion. Wild Ontario is a liveanimal, environmental education program based at the University of Guelph. Wild Ontario delivers quality, fun, educational programs throughout Ontario. All of their programs include a visit from their live, non-releasable birds and their enthusiastic, knowledgeable volunteers and staff. Their birds arrive at the program as a result of a negative interaction with humans, and with them they serve the important purpose of educating and exciting people about nature and conservation. The afternoon promises to include many “mouth to beak” encounters. Whether it’s the beautiful, yellow eyes of an owl or the bald, wrinkly head of a vulture that captures your imagination, you’re sure to have a memorable experience.
