Awards

Betsy Whitefield Award

The Betsy Whitefield Award is awarded to the champion team of that season. Betsy had donated the bowl for the trophy since the Lake Placid Curling Club did not have a trophy for the season’s winners. Betsy was a very enthusiastic former member of Lake Placid Curling Club. Betsy passed away in 2012 and the trophy was renamed in her memory.

Barbara Brandt Award

The Barbara Brandt Award is awarded to the most improved player for the current season and the recipient is chosen by past recipients. Ed and Barbara Brandt moved to the Adirondacks already being avid curlers. They were asked to start a curling club and, Lake Placid Curling Club  was accepted into the GNCC (Grand National Curling Club) in 1981. Both had a strong love for curling and wanted to teach new people how to curl. The award was named after Barbara after she passed from a car accident.
