Yvonne Martin of Coldbrook and the Glooscap Curling Club is among the most recent inductees to the Nova Scotia Curling Association Hall of Fame.

Martin will be inducted at ceremonies today, April 26, at CFB Shearwater.

A celebration will be held locally in her honour next Saturday, May 3, at the Glooscap Curling Club.

Martin was a competitive curler for many years, playing on a number of championship teams at a variety of levels. However, it wasn’t until she qualified for the senior women’s division, however, that she really hit her stride.

Over a 10-year period, Martin skipped four provincial senior women’s champions and three provincial Masters women’s champions. On two different occasions, she won both the seniors and Masters titles in the same year.

She has represented Nova Scotia several times at the national level and always competed with skill and fair play, gracious in victory and classy in defeat.
