BORDEN — The Borden Fire and Rescue had two teams playing in the provincial firefighting curling bonspiel in January and winning the C event was the team of Ian and Conner Wainwright, Dan Gunsch and Luke Walker. Also playing were David Dolsen, Jamie Brandrick, Sean Steacey and William Berg. The winning team was Greg Tarasoff’s team from Saskatoon/Swift Current and would have gone to the March 24 Canadian championship in Prince Edward Island but on Jan. 31 they decided to cancel it for 2022.

Bryan Pidwerbesky, son of Lorraine Olinyk, who has lived in Christchurch, New Zealand since 1986 with his wife Helen and son Nikolai, has been recognized as a distinguished fellow for his contribution in advancing the science and lifetime performance of pavements and surfacing materials.

Engineering New Zealand Fellowship recognizes the most highly experienced professionals who have achieved outstanding results. Bryan’s depth of experience and professional competency has seen him recognized as New Zealand’s go-to person for everything to do with pavements, and he has led and authorized many technical papers.

His knowledge and ability have enabled considerable advances in the construction and performance of thin flexible pavements that underpin New Zealand’s transport network. Bryan has developed and mentored many young and mid-career engineers in all aspects of pavement design and use in applications ranging from airport runways, container handling, maneuvering and hard-standing areas.

Highly respected by his peers in New Zealand and internationally, Bryan exemplifies the hallmarks of a distinguished fellow in terms of eminence, sustained leadership, professional behaviour and profile.
