David Bird, Pastor of the Regina First Nations Alliance Church, and his team won the First Nations equivalent of the Briar on the weekend.
David and his team are the excited and proud winners of the National Aboriginal Curling Championship 2007.
Hoisting the trophy, David and his team of Winifred Bird, Gerald Bird and Bill Desnomie went undefeated, taking on aboriginal teams from across Canada. “In the Aboriginal world this is like winning the Briar,” David says, “we get our names on the cup and everything!”
So, he says, “Regina First Nations Alliance Church is now the home of the 2007 National Aboriginal Curling Championship. I’ll probably put that on a sign somewhere.”
