He was a member of St. Mary’s & Wanderers Lawn Bowling clubs in Halifax, winning several Provincial titles and representing N.S. at the national level. He belonged to the Mayflower Curling Club where he became a proud member of “the 8 enders” club. In later years he enjoyed curling at the Barrington Curling Club as well.
