Extra Innings | Manches supplémentaires

billrolande.gifCongratulations to Coach Adam Shell and his hockey Paladins for two well earned victories in the Toronto area last weekend. Friday, the Paladins earned a rare RMC victory at York University – 2-1 (shoot-out). On Saturday they were dominant in a 5-1 drubbing of the first year OUA team from UOIT (Oshawa).

In the first game Matt Hartney in goal blocked 43 shots while Ian Miller with help from Matt Fetzner and Luke Pierce tallied the lone RMC marker. RMC prevailed in the shoot-out (no details available at press time).

On Saturday, II Year Michael Soros equaled his goal output for the entire 2005-06 season by scoring four times in the 5-1 win. Luke Pierce scored the fifth goal and added two assists. Paul Bradley is on pace to top his season high 37 points from last year. Bradley assisted on all four of the Soros scores to extend his total to five points for the season – all assists. Jeffrey Oke chipped in with two helpers; while goalie Adam Briggs, equaled the performance the night before by Matt Hartney stopping 43 of the 44 shots fired his way.

After three regular season OUA games the Paladins sit a top the Mid East Division tied with Queens both with two wins and a loss. RMC swings right back into action at home this weekend: Friday, 7:30 Guelph will be at Constantine while Brock Badgers will provide the opposition on saturday night – face-off time 7PM.

Our small army of e-Veritas workers grew by one last week. II Year 24587 Ian Boughton has volunteered – honest; it wasn’t a “shaft” – to help us out. Regular readers are aware that IV Year 23439 Kayne Carr has been holding our hand and getting us through all the intimidating snares associated with producing this type of e-Newsletter. The bad news Kayne is due to depart RMC within the next couple of months. The good news is, he is due to graduate in December. Consequently, his discretion time to help us with e-Veritas is very limited.

Welcome aboard, Ian.

Bill & Rolande Oliver

    Dear Peter (Dawe)

    re: your apology (and Tim Sparling’s) for the dinner. Your reasons for delegation, Peter – for me anyway – are entirely understandable. But as a class member who came back for his 30th reunion, I do NOT feel as negative about the evening as many of my peers seem to be.

    First of all, I view the function as one where I can meet my friends from other classes…and that would include those from the Old Brigade. (no, I’m not ready to join just yet!) So seeing them eating at another location and perhaps not joining the rest of us at the end of the dinner would be a disappointment to me. The dinner is a time I use to revisit old friends from all years. No, the various parades have too many civies mingling around to afford the same opportunity. The SAM means you can walk from one end to the other and visit/talk with more buds than is likely possible in any other venue at RMC.

    re: the food. I’m not looking for gourmet. (and if you are, do an off-site thing with your buds on the Friday nite) We ate at the Confederation Hotel and the food wasn’t materially better there either! Reverberating music from a live band? Go with the DJ next time.

    I think may Ex-Cadets are becoming very picayune in their old age. And I think they’re missing the REAL point of the evening. It’s one nite in five years, guys. Lighten up! With public sector pensions about twice the national income average, most of these tightwads can afford one so-so meal anyway.

    If you can’t take a joke, you shouldn’t have joined!
