Media Muscle: Media Training Workshop with Chris Dornan

MEDIA MUSCLE WITH CHRIS DORNAN
August 13, 2019 @ Royalty Centre 9:00 am – 12:00 noon

FINDING YOUR STORY, UNDERSTANDING THE IMPACTS, NAVIGATING FOR SUCCESS

Chris Dornan has come a long way from his days of play-by-play commentary of the games and exploits of his siblings and friends on a quiet cul-de-sac in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, to becoming one of Canada’s most prolific sports PR consultants. The common thread? Storytelling. And creativity. Chris Dornan has provided media and public relations support over the last 20 years, specializing with many of Canada’s amateur and professional athletes and sport organizations.

Having represented Canada at seven Olympic and four Paralympic Games, along with countless major international events, Chris opened his own communications consulting company in 2008 — High-Performance Public Relations – where he provides communications support to Own the Podium along with five of Canada’s summer and winter sport organizations. He has played a key role in building brand and media opportunities for two of Prince Edward Island’s most successful athletes: Heather Moyse and Mark Arendz. In addition, Chris is also the media director for two of the PGA TOUR’s leading Champions Tour events: Insperity Invitational (The Woodlands, TX) and Shaw Charity Classic (Calgary).

A journalism graduate of Ryerson Polytechnic University in Toronto, Chris spent two years in a public relations agency with a client-base that included: Molson, Nike Canada; and Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment before moving west to Calgary to take on the role of director of communications with the Calgary Olympic Development Association (now Winsport) for six years. Chris got his start in the industry with Golf Canada. He has also worked as a news reporter with CTV, and as a freelance writer for numerous magazines and newspapers across the country. Chris has done work for the Canadian Olympic Committee, Canadian Paralympic Committee, Alberta Government, WestJet, Edge Sport School, Canada Winter and Summer Games, Hockey Canada, Swimming Canada, and Haywood Securities.

He and his wife Lisa are raising two “Texadians” – born in Texas and now enjoying life as dual citizens – who have fallen in love with Prince Edward Island where they come to visit Chris’ PEI-born-and-bred mother’s family that still resides on the Island.

PEI Curling Hall of Fame member D. Alex MacDonald named Summerside citizen of the year (Guardian)

SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. — A prominent Island businessman was awarded Summerside’s 2019 George Key Sr. Citizen of the Year Award. D. Alex MacDonald, 92, received his award as part of the Canada Day celebrations at Spinnaker’s Landing.

Mayor Basil Stewart praised the choice.

“The committee has made an excellent choice with D. Alex MacDonald. He has made a tremendous contribution to Summerside over many years through business, creating many jobs; serving as a councillor, through the sports of curling, and with the Silver Fox Curling and Yacht Club.

Maple Leaf Little Rocks Car Wash and Barbecue fundraiser

The Maple Leaf Curling Club in O’Leary is holding a Little Rocks car wash and barbecue fundraiser on Saturday, June 29 from 11 AM to 2 PM at the Club (426 Main Street), to help finance a makeover for the Club’s Kids Room, which they use in their school program that has been running for about 20 years. Please come out and help give them a better space!

June 30 is For The Love of Curling Scholarship application deadline (Curling Canada)

Canada’s future stars on the ice have the opportunity to also further their ambitions in the classroom, thanks to the Curling Canada Foundation’s For the Love of Curling Scholarship program.

Eighteen participants in the 2019 New Holland Canadian Junior Men’s and Women’s Curling Championships were past recipients of the For The Love of Curling Scholarship.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2019 For the Love of Curling Scholarships, which are funded through the generous support of the Canadian curling community.

A total of 10 $2,500 scholarships will be awarded to male and female curlers who best demonstrate athletic and academic prowess as well as community leadership.

“It’s always exciting to see the results of this Curling Canada Foundation program, because it produces such a tangible outcome,” said Maureen Miller, Chair of Curling Canada’s Board of Governors. “The scholarships will give young curlers across the country an amazing opportunity — not only to continue improving as athletes and students, but also as citizens, and that’s truly gratifying.”

At the 2019 New Holland Canadian Junior Curling Championships in Prince Albert, Sask., there were 18 former recipients of the For The Love of Curling Scholarship, including two-time reigning world and three-time reigning Canadian junior men’s champs Tyler Tardi and Sterling Middleton.

Another former recipient, Karsten Sturmay, will be a member of the 2019 Selection Committee.

All of the 2019 scholarships will be awarded to deserving young athletes from across Canada to help post-secondary athletes cover some of their education and curling costs.

Emphasis will be placed on athletes who have competed at the provincial/territorial level or higher, who have maintained a good level of academic standing, while showing a strong commitment to their community through involvement in coaching, instructing and volunteer activities. Athletes must be under the age of 24 as of Dec. 31, 2019, and not have received the For the Love of Curling Scholarship previously.

The application process runs from May 1 to June 30, 2019. Scholarships will be awarded in August.

Birthright added to Curling Canada residency rules (Curling Canada)

The residency rules that determine eligibility for the national men’s and women’s curling championships has been updated, it was announced by Curling Canada. Players can now use birthright status to represent the province or territory they were born, even after moving away.

For a summary of the update, click here.

For the full residency rules, click here.

For frequently asked questions about birthright, click here.

This decision was made by the Curling Canada operations team after discussion with the Board of Governors and Member Association presidents.

Birthright will be implemented nationwide as of the 2019-20 curling season and in effect at the Tim Hortons Brier, Scotties Tournament of Hearts and all provincial/territorial playdown events leading up to the national men’s and women’s championships. This means all teams can still consist of one free agent and the remaining players may be bona fide residents or have birthright.

“Ask any Canadian curler about their dreams as a young player and they’ll tell you it’s competing at a Tim Hortons Brier or Scotties Tournament of Hearts and wearing the colours of their province or territory,” says Curling Canada CEO Katherine Henderson. “This update gives all curlers the opportunity to keep that dream alive no matter where they live in the country, while continuing to celebrate the traditions of inter-provincial/territorial competition that makes our sport special.”

This move provides curlers with more freedom in their personal and professional lives while achieving their athletic goals and aligns curling with best practices of other National Sport Organizations.

“I think it makes sense. Today in curling we’re going up against such strong competition at the world level and we need to make sure our best team is representing Canada. This allows players more leeway to live their lives and still have a strong team at worlds,” says Ben Hebert, lead for Kevin Koe.

The decision also benefits Member Associations (MA) that can feel the impact of curlers moving away for school and work opportunities. MA’s spend a lot of time, money and resources on developing young curlers and birthright provides these athletes with opportunities to represent the region they were born even if they move away.

“The way the world works many people are required to move because of circumstances,” says Jennifer Jones. “Whether it’s a job, school, a relationship or family there are many reasons why people move. In many cases, curlers end up having to make a difficult choice between where they live and their goals playing the sport which is unfortunate.”

He is a national college champion with the Fanshawe Falcons. (Photo, Curling Canada/Rob Blanchard Photograph)

Birthright removes that difficult choice for some curlers, such as Brady St. Louis, by providing more options. St. Louis, from St. Marys, Ont., plans to use his birthright and make an immediate impact for his home territory of Nunavut. The 22-year-old could inject the territory with new talent that it otherwise would not receive.

St. Louis spent the first nine years of his life in Iqaluit and learned to curl there. He moved to Ontario with his family and eventually played for the Fanshawe Falcons where he won a national college curling championship and was named an all-star twice.

He hopes to follow in his father’s footsteps (David St. Louis skipped Nunavut at the 2018 and 2019 Tim Hortons Briers). If he does, he brings no shortage of skill to Nunavut: strategy, clutch draw weight, strong sweeping and experience on arena ice – to name a few.

“Having this is really phenomenal for me and other kids,” St. Louis says. “It’s a dream come true to go to the Brier for any curler. To have that chance while not being a permanent resident is just amazing. It gives me and other people that move away – because of working parents and other reasons – a chance to prove themselves. I still see Nunavut as being home for me. And to get a chance to represent a place where I grew up makes it that much better.”

The update to the rules leave a lot of possibilities on the table for curlers who have moved away, including some well-known names. Ben Hebert (born in Regina) playing for Saskatchewan again? He doesn’t rule out the possibility in the future.

“I have a great team here in Alberta now, but down the road if there was ever an opportunity for me to play for my home province and to play for Saskatchewan, I think that would be a very welcoming system,” says Hebert.

It’s welcoming because even though Hebert spent the first 22 years of his life in Saskatchewan, he has established his home in Alberta with a career, wife and kids. It’s very unlikely he would move back to Saskatchewan to play for the province.

It’s the realities of life for himself and many others who play the sport, but he doesn’t believe it should prevent a curler from representing the province or territory they identify with.

“For example, Rachel Homan just had a baby. For her now to play out of Ontario, that’s where she’s from and she’s put a lot of time into that association, and move out to Alberta with her husband and have their family here and not have to move back, I think that’s outstanding for curling and a step in the right direction,” Hebert says.
