  1. Hi Peter
    My name is René Geiser and I wash the Swiss skip of the junior team 1975….
    Just went browsing about our time at the 1975 Uniroyal Junior Championship in East York, Canada. I still remember the game against you…We on 7 to 3/4 and I think this was the best match I and my team ever played…..I remember that after first round we were in the statistics way above 95 % which was in thouse days phenomenal.
    I tried to find some pictures or even some TV pictures as I remember that those games ere live on TV….Though I never found anything…..
    But I found you…..
    So wish you all the best.
