Macdonald - In April 1959 the Macdonald Tobacco Company offered a trophy to the LCA for annual competition. This trophy was discussed at length and at one time it was suggested that it be played for on an intenational basis. No definite decision was reached. Finally, late in the 1962 season, invitations were sent to 50 clubs and play started with an entry of 32 rinks. The competition was run on a knock-out basis with Main Event and Consolation - giving each entrant at least two games. Mrs. Billings (Three Rivers), President of LCA accepted the trophy on behalf of the Association. Mr. Fortier and Mr. Geary of the Macdonald Company attended the finals held at the St. George Curling Club.
