Ryan Dahmer named all-star skip at College Curling Championship

Dahmer and his Red Deer College (RDC) Kings curling team captured bronze with a win over Humber College of Toronto in Camrose last week.

HALKIRK HERALD — Tony and Clara Nibourg arrived home last week from a three-week tour down under, where they attended the wedding of Tony’s nephew, David Baltimore and his bride, Meghann in her hometown of Canberra, Australia. Following the outdoor ceremony they were able to watch the kangaroos hop all over as the sun set, then it was into the city for the dinner and dance. But prior to the wedding they started their holiday in Sydney, a beautiful, large and busy city, then on to Cairns where they went snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef and toured a Brangus (Brahma and Angus cross) cattle ranch, explored caves and drove through the tableland where a big percentage of Australia’s food is grown. A flight to the West Coast and the City of Perth, which has an amazing riverfront area, a boat tour of the main port on the Indian Ocean and then a ride on the Indian-Pacific train through the southern part of the country gave them a four-day, three-night journey, where they viewed and toured winery country, the real outback, mountains and rain forests. A 34-hour, door-to-door fantastic holiday.

Red Deer College (RDC) Kings skip Ryan Dahmer and his curling team captured bronze with a win over Humber College of Toronto at the College Curling Championships in Camrose last week. Congratulations to Ryan who was named all-star skip. Ryan is a fourth year business student at RDC and the son of Rocky and Louanne Dahmer.
