Moose Jaw Express.com - - 2018 Year In Review -

The 26th An­nual Kins­men Celebrity Sports Ban­quet fundrais­ing event was a huge suc­cess, fea­tur­ing a star-stud­ded line-up of sports speak­ers – Saskatchewan Roughrid­ers cen­tre Dan Clark, Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Joe Bi­agini and Hockey Hall of Famer Lanny McDon­ald. Sport­snet’s Jamie Camp­bell was once again the Mas­ter of Cer­e­monies for the night.

The evening also saw a trio of an­nual awards pre­sented: the Penny Barker curl­ing rink was named the Coun­try 800 Team of the Year af­ter their im­pres­sive run through the pro­vin­cial cham­pi­onships to the Scot­ties Tour­na­ment of Hearts; Brier-win­ning curler Pat Sim­mons re­ceived the Kins­men Sports Achieve­ment award for his on­go­ing legacy of win­ning on the ice; and long­time lo­cal coach, player, Kins­men Ban­quet or­ga­nizer and KidS­port Moose Jaw founder Cory Olaf­son re­ceived the in­au­gu­ral Moose Jaw Ex­press Sports Builder award.

Lanny McDon­ald and Dan Clark look on as Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Joe Bi­agini re­gales the crowd with one of his many hi­lar­i­ous tales on the evening.
