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
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
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. The games will only be 3 innings each and if time permits there will be a
22nd game, a final between the 2 teams with the best records. 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.
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
you 55+ and Looking for Fun, Food and Laughter?
Wings of Artisans , Co-op , has attained a New Horizons Grant,
Learning From The Roots, for the Lower Laurentians to encourage seniors of all
ages (+55) to become involved in learning and sharing skills with others. They
are have having an open house at the Heritage Club on Thursday August 25 from
9:30am to 2:00pm which includes a light lunch. Space is limited so

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
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.

'Eddy' Croke Passes Away at 85
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.
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
Santa would like to see you there and if you are good, he promises to remember
you at Christmas.
Is Also Time to Think of Preschool Starting in September
Julia and Cheryl
have put together a learning program / preschool in Two-Mountains for children 3
to 5 years old. The preschool, called Little Cubs Club, is be designed to
give children two mornings a week of fun and learning in preparation for
kindergarten. 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

Legion Branch 185 Softball Team Captures
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.

Tartan Pub - Hello Pub Deux-Montagnes
NEWS - You may have heard of the temporary closure of the pub. It REOPENS
today (Thursday) at 6:00pm.
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.
Mountains Express Goes Online
an effort to reduce costs and save the environment, the municipal newsletter has

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

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.
Friday - Pedal

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

#1 at Olympia Now Officially Terrain Edwin Thomas Ewenson
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,
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 2mopaul.com). 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.

Official Renaming of Diamond #1 at
Olympia Park to Terrain Edwin Thomas Ewenson
Troy Ewenson's online petition to name Diamond #1 at Olympia Park in memory of
his father was successful. On Wednesday July 6th, the unveiling of the plaque

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
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
course was in fine shape and completely ready for the Champions Tour next week.
Here are some pictures of the action.
Flowering Deux-Montagnes Contest
The City of
Deux-Montagnes has decided to automatically register all residences on
its territory in the 2011 Flowering Deux‑Montagnes Contest, which rewards
outstanding residential landscaping. The municipality invites residents to
beautify the front facade of their homes as the Beautification Committee’s

institutional or balcony). The scoring will be recorded according to various
criteria, including overall appearance and maintenance, lawn and/or
ground-cover, integrated infrastructures such as benches, rocks, small walls (or
other), plant diversity and landscaping harmony. The winners will be contacted
in August and the award ceremony will be held in September.
“By including all residences, we aim to boost publicity for the contest,
encourage all citizens to beautify their properties and drape our city in a
pretty, fresh and colourful blanket that creates an inviting and friendly living
environment. All citizens will have a chance to win a prize. Good luck!” says
Marc Lauzon, City Mayor.

Kirk's Krew Wins the Que-Ont Golf
Challenge at Lake Placid
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.
