#8 – Little Leaf Linden – in recognition of Terry & Ron Braunstein

Terry and Ron lived in Binscarth from 1945—1955, the sons of a doctor
who practiced here. They developed their skills as a result of the terrific
sporting environment that Binscarth offered in the 1940’s and 1950’s.

When the Braunsteins moved to Winnipeg, Terry began to curl at the
Maple Leaf Curling Club with his uncle, a very successful Manitoba
curler. He also joined the Granite Curling Club junior program where he
skipped a team which included Ron and his good friend Ray Turnbull.

In 1956, Terry entered his junior team in the Winnipeg bonspiel and won
a spot in the Manitoba Provincial Curling Playdowns. They won the 1958
Manitoba championship and were the youngest team to compete at the
Brier. They finished runner-up with a record of 8 & 2. In 1965, Terry’s team
of Don Duguid, Ron and Ray, won the brier with a record of 9 &1
