A Change In LTHC Venue and Time, Again
The LTHC Friday Hockey league is back in its old surroundings in its old timeslot. Starting this Friday, the boys of winter will return to the last year's hours and venue, thanks to some artful negotiation by our fearless leader(s). The 4:00pm start at the Boisbriand facility proved to be too much for all those unlucky folks who are not yet enjoying the retired life. The new time was forcing out some of our younger blood which is there to keep us old folks on our toes. So we are back at the old arena but the days of the Patinoire Deux-Montagnes are counted. As the building sits on prime business real estate, it is ready to be developed for more lucrative enterprises as it is now owned by Gestion Benoit Dumoulin (GBD) and that firm is busy developing many projects. So to everyone playing Friday hockey, please refer to the link on the left for the new time, schedule and payments terms which have changed considerably and are not firm yet.                 

A Very Interesting Article in La Presse
One of my readers, pointed out a very interesting article that appeared in the CyberPresse of September 2nd. It makes for a very interesting read since it involves a prominent Two-Mountains resident. I will let you read and judge it for yourself since the English press didn't seem to pick up on this. If you read French, here is the link and if you read English, here is a link to the computer generated translation which actually makes a funny read since not everything is translated properly. Be patient as the translation takes a few seconds to be done and make sure you scroll down because the page appears blank on top but the article shows up underneath the picture. As one of my good friends says all the time, 'money follows money'.

Legion Branch 185 Softball Tournament Raises Over $2900
The local Legion's Annual softball was a great success as it raised a record high of over $2900 and still counting. The weather was perfect and all the teams had a blast. Doug's All-Stars from Morin-Heights once again took the crown edging out the Lac Barron by beating them head to head as both teams ended with a 5 and 1 record. The Legion 1ab's had a 4 and 2 record and were the only team that defeated the champions. Once again a big thank you to everyone who participated and help raise money for the St-Anne's Veterans Recreation Fund. Many pictures can be found here. Also if you have pictures you want to share you can use this link and I will include them in the album. If someone found a baseball glove with the letters "LOU" on it please contact me and I will return it to its owner.

On Saturday September 10th, the Legion will be hosting their 4th Annual Softball tournament starting at 9:00am at Olympia Park. All proceeds of this tournament go to the St-Anne's Veterans Recreational Fund which has received over $10,000 in the last 3 years. This year there are 7 teams competing including 4 teams formed by our friends from Morin-Heights. The format will be a 6 game round robin for each team which means there will be 21 games with 2 games on at all times.

Everyone, will be invited back to the Legion for a chicken supper and prize presentation. There will be food and beverages available all day at the park along with a half and half draw. Come support the Vets and cheer on your favourite team.

Important Note to Friday LTHC Players
The management of the arena where we will be playing Friday hockey were apparently forced by the city of Boisbriand to move our 4:30 time slot to 4 o'clock until Christmas. After that, it will return to 4:30 for the rest of the season. Check the LTHC link on the right for the full schedule and payment details. Stay tuned as more developments are coming on Wednesday Sept. 7.

Irene Blows in Two Mountains

Hurricane Irene, the storm that never lived up to its name, made it's way into Quebec on Sunday and departed, leaving a trail of moderate destruction. For the most part, we were spared any major damage. In Two Mountains, many leaves prematurely fell off the trees which will make autumn cleanup about 2% easier. Other than the destruction depicted in the above photo (which, if I did not know better, may have actually been caused by Irene who lives down the street in South Two Mountains), there was a Maple tree on 18th that did not stand the force of the wind. Click here for a picture of the tree that fell on 18th avenue just north of Normandie. Thanks to Geoff for letting me know.

Pub Deux-Montagnes Hosts Labour Day Weekend Golf Tournament
On Sunday September 4th, Two Mo Pub (formerly the Tartan Pub) will be holding its first golf tournament at the Deux-Montagnes Golf Course. The format will be a best ball/Vegas teams of 4. This golf tournament will break new ground in the history of the Pub in all its formats as it will be open to all. In other words, the 4 man Vegas will be the 4 person Vegas. If you want to enter your own team of 4 or simply want to join as a single and be paired with one of the Pub's avid golfers, you are sure to have a good time. Teams will be determined on Friday and will be balanced as best as possible. The entrance fee $75 and will include golf, a cart and a half chicken dinner at the Pub following the tournament. There will be prizes and surprises. Tee-offs times start at 11:00am so there should be no excuses that you slept in. Please register ASAP by dropping in or by calling Tracy, Tina or Amy at 450 598 6998.

2mopaul Qualifies in Golf Town's National Amateur Series
Yesterday, August 22, I entered my first ever 'official' golf tournament. I signed up only a month ago on a lark because it looked interesting and they had a senior's division. Having just turned 55, I (wrongly) figured there might be a slight advantage being one of the youngest guys in the competition. I wasn't the only one that figured that as it ends up that there were many golfers born in 1956. Plus there are a lot of 60+ golfers out there who can still whoop ass. Anyway, I thought I would give it a shot. On a very windy day at Fontainebleau, I struggled along with 83 other people in various 'flights' and ended up on the winning the Senior A flight. That qualified me for The National Championships in Niagara Falls in late September. They provide the airfare as the series is sponsored by Westjet. I now have to decide whether I will bring my talents to the Falls to eat humble pie. The full story on how I managed to squeeze in the victory is on my golf page link on the left. Warning: The story is really only for avid golfers and those people that need something to fall asleep to.

Are you 55+ and Looking for Fun, Food and Laughter?

Canada Wins 10th Wyder Cup
Team Canada cruised to victory in this year's version of the Wyder Cup. The Canadians took an early lead and never looked back. The golf highlight of the weekend was a double eagle by Matt Wall of team USA on the first hole during the first round of the competition. Matt holed out from 190 yards to get a 2 of the par 5. Round one is a stableford format giving him 16 points out of the gate, basically clinching the match after the first hole. Canada dominated round four by taking 16 of the 21 points in the 'mano/mano' matches. The American ladies however crushed the their Canadian counterparts in the Ladies Cup on Saturday. The highlight of the women's golf was an eagle by Debbie Neely on the par 4 3rd hole as she sank her approach shot from the 100 yard markers. The entire weekend was great and the weather was impeccable for all 3 days. Thanks to Adryth and Robert for organizing this event once again. Thanks to Art Abdelahad for bringing the sound system for the party on Saturday. Also many thanks to Dana Weekes (Inn and Events Manager) and Trevor Howard (General Manager) and all of the staff who go out of their way to make us feel welcome at the Maplewood. Many pictures and videos are posted using the link below or the Wyder Cup link on the left. Also, Michael Curtis has posted many pictures here.

All Set For 10th Annual Wyder Cup
Back in August of 2002, on the day before Robert Wall and Adryth Waybill tied the knot, the golf glove was dropped as Robert's gang from Boston challenged our boys to a golf match. Back then it was an 18 hole affair with 28 guys fighting over 14 points to earn the golf bragging rights. Robert's Team USA won 7 1/2 to 6 1/2 and it was the start of an annual battle for the Cup and the bragging rights. Called the Wyder Cup as both the players and the Cup itself is getting, this will be the 3rd year that it will be settled in New Hampshire. From the second year, the competition has spanned 2 days with 4 different matches resulting in many more points to be fought over. The Ladies also started their own cup in year 2 and are still battling for it in a somewhat more civilized and less aggressive manner. This year, Team Canada will try to keep the cup for a 3rd year in a row to go to a 7 and 3 record as 21 men from each side hit the links at the Maplewood Golf Club in Bethlehem NH. The tentative pairings have been posted. Use the Wyder link on the left side.  

The End of an Era for the LTHC
The Laval Teachers Hockey Club has lost their home of almost 30 years and as of September 9th they will be playing in a new home. Without getting into details, the 5 o'clock time slots at the Patinoire Deux-Montagnes that the LTHC as held on Mondays and Fridays since the opening are gone. This could have spelled the end of LTHC hockey for many players however in a stroke of extreme luck, the organizers of the 40 plus year LTHC tradition managed to find an alternate venue with a slight change of schedule. The new venue is a newly opened state of the art sports complex situated on the old GM plant grounds in Boisbriand. It is called the Centre d'Excellence Sport Rousseau and is where the new major junior team, the Armada, will be playing it's inaugural season in September. The schedule change is not too severe on Fridays as the starting time is only 30 minutes ahead of the old 5pm start. It will be a further trek for us but it might be better for players coming home from work. For Mondays however, we could only secure the 3 o'clock time slot. This means that some of our non retired players will not be able to escape their employment obligations in time to join us. This will also mean that there will be a call for some new players to join us in this great new venue. Our challenge will be to fill the 3000 seat arena just once this year. One slight drawback to this move is that some our dates have been previously reserved cutting our 30 week schedule to 26 games only. A full schedule will be posted on the LTHC link. Also if you are interested in joining full time or as a spare on Mondays, please contact me and I will give you the details. The average age is over 50, therefore is not too late to get back on those skates.

Edward 'Eddy' Croke Passes Away at 85
On Sunday July 24th, Edward Croke passed away although he had successfully battled cancer for many years.  Whenever you were around 'Eddy', as we all knew him as, you were sure to be having a good time and surely laughing at his many jokes. Every March, he was a staple of the Two Mountains Irish Society's participation in the St-Patrick's Day Parade. Many people also knew him as Willie Nelson because of uncanny resemblance to Willie right down to the pony tail. The parade won't be the same without him. Rest in peace Eddy. A memorial service will be held in August. Stay tuned for more details.

Not Too Early To Think of Santa Claus
You may find it a bit premature to write about the 42nd Annual Two-Mountains Santa Claus Parade that will be held on December 4th. Actually it's not too early because a key element to holding the parade is the money raised at the parade's annual golf tournament. According to parade organizers, there probably would not be a parade anymore without the money raised at this event in the last 8 years. The 9th annual tournament will be held on the Lachute Golf course on Thursday September 15th and the community and local businesses are encouraged to support this cause so that the parade can go on for years to come. For more information, please visit the parade's website by clicking here. Santa would like to see you there and if you are good, he promises to remember you at Christmas.

It Is Also Time to Think of Preschool Starting in September

The program caters to both English and French speaking children. There are currently openings for this September and there will be an open house and registration in August. For all the information please contact Julia (ECE) at 514 609-6499 or Cheryl at  514 945-4777. You can also send an email to

Sunday Morning Fire in Ste-Marthe-Sur-le-Lac
This house fire on 29th avenue was digitally captured by Kevin Deschamps this morning. I believe there was no injuries but the newish construction was heavily damaged as you can see. The house next door suffered some damage as you can see. Thanks Kevin. I invite everyone to send me any breaking local news and pictures and I will be happy to publish them.

Legion Branch 185 Softball Team Captures Morin-Heights Pineapple
On a very hot Saturday July 16th afternoon, Morin Heights Legion Branch 171 hosted their annual canoe trip softball tournament. A
largely revamped Two-Mountain Legion Br. 185 softball team came back from a 3 run deficit in the final inning to win their first game against Lac Barron in their first game to start the tournament on a positive swing. The tied the next game 1-1 against Comforts Bar then conitnued on to defeat the host team, Br. 171. The tradition is that when the canoe filled with various beverages is empty, the tournament ends. At that point, the Two Mountains Legion had the best record with the largest run differential. However, in order to avoid an extra game in the stifling heat, Team Captain Rollie Fiset conceded a tie with Comforts Bar. We shared the first prize which is a fresh pineapple while knowing in our hearts that we had really won the tournament outright. Regardless, it was a fantastic day thanks to the people of Morin-Heights and the beverages that were provided to keep us from over heating in the 30 plus heat.

Bye Bye Tartan Pub - Hello Pub Deux-Montagnes
BREAKING NEWS -  You may have heard of the temporary closure of the pub. It REOPENS today (Thursday) at 6:00pm.
The Tartan Pub as we knew it closed its doors on Sunday June 26 only to open the next day under the new ownership of Yvon and Tracy. At first, nothing seemed to have changed but under the covers a lot had and there will be plenty more. The first real noticeable change was that by Wednesday of the first week a new air conditioning system had been installed. This was a welcome sight as the dog days of summer are sure to be here soon and the old new Tartan had a reputation to be very hot when the temperature outside was up there. There was also a change in the name which some people are not aware since no new signage has been erected yet. Perhaps the biggest immediate change, was an extension of the hours of business. The pub is open everyday now from 11am to 3am so no matter what time of the day or night you want to see a friendly face, the doors will be open. Although everyone is still calling it the Tartan, its unofficial name on the inside is 2MO Pub. The Tartan had the same identity crisis when it opened in 1989. People called it the Marquise for years and even worse the Pit. When the Tartan moved to its new quarters in April 2010, it soon shed its Pit nickname.
On the use of 2MO...I am not sure that it is the result of this website, but the use of acronym 2MO has become very popular in the last years. Some people have been saying 2MO for years, but now it's catching on. Watch for more 2MO Pub announcements on new happenings and events.

Two Mountains Express Goes Online
In an effort to reduce costs and save the environment, the municipal newsletter has gone online. Although a limited amount of of printed copies will be available at specific locations* for people who are not reading this right now, the city encourages you to read it online and if you want it as soon as it's available you can register to receive it in your mailbox. I hope the email only contains a link to the express as sending the full content would overload the mail server of the sender as more people register. There goes my technical background again. To register simply use this link and enter your e-mail address. This means that you ex-Two-Mountaineers around the world can register too and see what you are missing. -* Locations that you can the printed copy: municipal services, convenience stores (deps as we call them), Pharmaprix, IGA, the Cascades and Manoir Grand-Moulin. The next issue comes out August 13th and will contain the fall sport and recreation program. Remember the link to the Deux-Montagnes website is always available on top of my this page.

This Friday - Pedal for the Cure - Edition 4
Once again, for the fourth year, Carla Hoger and her dad, Rick will be pedaling their way from Ottawa to Two Mountains to raise money and awareness for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation of Montreal. Carla was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2006 while attending university. She is determined to fight this disease and wants to help find a cure. This year she will be putting her new bike to the test along with herself. The date of the ride is THIS Friday July 15th and there is still time to show your support by donating now. As usual, a BBQ will be awaiting the riders and supporters when they arrive in Two Mountains around 6pm. All the info can be found here

Diamond #1 at Olympia Now Officially Terrain Edwin Thomas Ewenson
On Wednesday July 6th 2011, one of the ball diamonds officially was christened the Edwin-Thomas Ewenson Field. In a ceremony and presentation by Mayor Marc Lauzon and counsellor Tom Whitton, the field will now stamped with two plaques like the ones on the left. The ceremony was followed by a game featuring a selection of DMSA players against 94.7 Hits FM, a fundraiser for the Childrens' Wish Foundation. The attendance was pretty good and the canteen was doing a hot business with the proceeds going to CWF. After the game, a draw was held and some lucky person went home with a top of the line iPad. Thanks to the participants and all the supporters. Thanks to city for honouring 'Eddy' who was part of the fabric of softball for many years. For pictures of the presentation and some of the game, click here.   

Feng Shui This!
In the past couple of months, I have received many emails regarding at thing called Money Bags. It claims that some month (which has to have 31 days) will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. It claims this only happens every 823 years and that you will receive money if you pass it on. It seems many of you believe in Feng Shui which has nothing to do with the calendar but has everything to do with how crazy people arrange the furniture in their house. In my opinion, the only alignment needed in a house is where your TV is pointing and how far apart your surround sound speakers should be. The rest of the Feng Shui is crap. (This does reflect the opinion of all the people working at If you do believe that it takes 823 years for a month to have 5 Fridays, then I will gladly be your accountant for a very modest fee. Also if you believe that Mars will rise one night to be the size of the moon, I would like to be your travel agent and send you to the moon for a close up. This is yet another plea. Chain e-mails are ALWAYS designed to clog up mailboxes and make you feel guilty for not forwarding them. Not only do they clog up our mailboxes but they show people how gullible you are and someday your name and e-mail address may appear on a list of the Nigerian government who want you to help them claim an inheritance were you will get a percentage. Now that's easy money. Let me forward that Feng Shui email to the 429 contacts in my address book.

Holy Family Golf Tournament A Success Even with the Rain
On Saturday May 25th, 72 golfers set out to slay the Oka Golf Course in the Holy Family tournament. The weather was not great but most people hung in there and the sun finally came out for the last 3 holes. The steak supper was also very good as many non golfers came out to support the cause. Here are the pictures from the golf course and the supper.

Drive For the Cure Results and Pictures
Mother Nature almost cooperated fully with the Danny Klimas Drive for the Cure 11th Annual Golf Tournament. Most people had 16 or 17 holes finished when the skies opened up and drenched everyone for the last 2 holes. Nevertheless, spirits were high and wallets were loose as the tournament raised the 2nd highest amount since its inception. Over $35,000 was raised and will be going to cancer research. The Fontainebleau course was in fine shape and completely ready for the Champions Tour next week. Here are some pictures of the action.

Kirk's Krew Wins the Que-Ont Golf Challenge at Lake Placid
Kirk Duguid's Team Quebec came back from Friday's loss to Phil Roberts' Team Ontario by taking all the points on Saturday at the Whiteface Resort Golf course. The Saturday sweep captured the coveted trophy after team Ontario got an early lead on Friday on a windy Saranac Inn Golf course. Representing Quebec was Kirk along with his players, Paul Goyetche, Mike Carpini, Roger Sawyer, Jim Dunne, John Bartholomew, Steve Dwyer and John Hughes. The runners up team was made up of captain Phil and his teammates, Frank Ercolanese (a last minute trade), Jody Scott, Steve and Kevin Doucet, Jamie Macdonald, Harry Smith and Gary Kirbyson  (lent to team Ontario for the weekend). The conditions at Whiteface Resort were ideal except for thunderous mob of flesh eating black flies that surrounded us for the entire 2 rounds play on Saturday. The still air made for low scores on the tight track as compared to Friday's first round at Saranac where the wind was a major factor in boosting the scores. Click here for pictures. Scores for people in my foursomes are posted here. A highlight was watching the 11 second overtime Canucks win and, as someone put it, Canada beating the Bruins to take a 2 nothing lead in the Stanley Cup finals.
