2005 - Keith Mallette was recently named Instructor of The Year for 2004 - 2005 by Curling Quebec. In addition Curling Quebec recognized Pointe-Claire's (Keith's) Junior Program as Program of the Year. The Montreal Barbarians loss has certainly been curling's gain. An honor well deserved.

2005 - Guillaume Klein - "Still playing rugby although I might get surgery on my shoulder this summer (dislocated it twice). I'm just coming back from stade Jean Bouin where they are playing the Paris IRB sevens and had a chat with Shane. I will probably meet him tonight at the Stade de france where there is the final of the french top division championship (and then probably out for a couple of beers). I took a picture of us with my Barb's shirt on to show the barbs actually are represented all around the world. Say hi to everyone."

2004 - Eric Saulnier - "The barb's are not the only ones who know how to win! Mossley Hill are doing good this year. I've got a regular spot at 1st team scrumhalf and we are killing everyone. We beat the Police 29 - 0 today and it had to be one of the funnest games I've ever played in!"

2003 - Ray Cornbill (New York, New York) former USA Eagles Coach and current Marines coach..

"Congratulations to everyone who made the Barb's 50th such an enjoyable event. It was very well conceived, striking a great balance between the informality and casual attire (not to mention very affordable) with a serious note for a historical perspective. I enjoyed every aspect and was very honored to present the awards to the International Athletes of the club. I wish more "veterans" had attended -- it was their loss. It was great catching up with the Barbs of the Eastern Champs years. Needless to say I would like to maintain my membership, so please tell me where to send the appropriate boodle. With thanks, and best wishes for another great year.."
