Terry Braunstein has the unique distinction of a rule being
named after him. Until recently (2015), the "Braunstein Rule"
prohibited junior teams of high school ages from competing in mens
and womens Tankard playdowns. Terry, along with brother Ron,
Ray Turnbull and Jack Van Hellemond surprised the Manitoba and
Canadian curling elite by qualifying for the Brier and then making
it into a final game playoff against Matt Baldwin in 1958. In
1965 Terry would return with Ron, Ray and Don Duguid as vice and
win the Brier but fall short in the World Championship (then known
as the Scotch Cup).
Terry shares stories of his early days throwing
irregular sized stones on natural ice, to his Brier experiences and
his thoughts on the modern game.
