1968 Don Wilson Team

Curling (1989)

Canadian Senior Men's Curling Champions


March 1968 was a time to remember for Don Wilson's curling team. Playing alongside Carson Tufts, Ivan McMillan, and Rueben Lowe, Don's Granite club reps went through the Saskatchewan and Canadian senior men's playdowns without a loss. In Moose Jaw for the provincial final, Wilson won three games to win the "A" side, then beat Tony Junker of the Regina Callie 7-2 to earn the trip to Edmonton for the nationals. 

The competition started on March 25 and five days later, Wilson's foursome had 10 wins and no losses to win the championship and claim the Seagram Stone Trophy. Along the play-off trail, Wilson's foursome lost one game.
