West Point Weekend – a great reunion and social event for many Ex Cadets

By: WJO

The main event for ‘West Point Weekend’ was the 80th version of the hockey game. Once again, as like two years ago, the RMC Club under the leadership of Bryan Bailey and assisted by Mary Darlington organized and hosted a highly successful pregame social at the Officers Mess – Fort Frontenac – right across the street from the game venue, K-Rock Centre.

A light meal was served and the bar was open for a large group of mainly Ex Cadets – some of whom travelled in from Toronto, Ottawa and south of the border. A gret time was had by all – MORE photos here

In addition the Class of 1990 filled a ‘box’ at the K-Rock Centre to cheer and enjoy the game. Spotted in the group were: Ted Bennett; Rob Boetcher; Marc Brouillard; Derek Buxton (main organizer); Sharon Donnelly; Scott Guild; Carole Jenkins; Greg Losier; Marcel Losier; Kirby Mcburny; Gary McMullin; Dave Rudnicki; Todd Smart; Andrew Vignuzzi; and Kevin Webster.

There is talk that many of them will make the trek to West Point this time next year. MORE photos here

Earlier in the afternoon there were two alumni games pitting ‘alumni from both institutions in a 40 & over game, followed by an under 40 age group. The RMCC ‘seniors’ won their affair by a count of 6-3 while our younger squad went down by a 4-1 score.

This was a first-time try in matching the two alumni groups in this type of completion(s). All signs indicate that it was a ‘winner’ all round and there will be a repeat off the Hudson River next year.

Included on the team rosters: (seniors) – Sebastien Bronsard; Mark Brouillard; Pat Dray; AJ Ellis; Sean Friday; Andre Labrie; Rory MacLeod; Don McLeod; Al Meinzinger; Steve Molaski; Gordie Plue; Lance Webb; Jamie Williams; George Wissler; and Shayne Wizniewski;

The under 40 squad: Paul Bradley; Colin Cook; Anthony Farrow; Andrew Flemming; Josh Fudge; Marc Granlund; Matthew Hartney; Andrew Hawkins; Scott McDonald; Jeff Oke; Ryan Thebault; David Thebault; James Thomson; Ryan Thompson; and David Wood.

The honorary coach for both RMCC teams was Andy Scott who was helped on the bench by Karl Michaud and Mike Jackson.  Rob Riley travelled in from Boston to do the honours for the West Point alumni.

We likely missed a few names. We certainly were pleased by the turnout of Ex Cadets and other Alumni.

A special mention and tip of the cap goes out to Jeff Oke. He led the charge and the organizing a committee to not only get it done but set the bar very high; and added a touch of class which will help to ensure this event has legs for years to come.

For reasons beyond his control our photographer Erik was unable to make it to the K-Rock in time for the 40 & over game.  Tks to Karl Michaud for this one team(s) photo.
