1985, Win Shandro (Curling)

Winshandro1985Win Shandro was inducted to the Hall of Fame for her contributions as an organizer and administrator of women’s curling in the Yukon.

Win’s passion for curling began in the Prairies. When she arrived in the Yukon she organized women curlers into the Ladies Curling Association and served as the first president. She also helped in writing the first constitution and bylaws that have been the foundation of the association since that time. Win saw a need for the Yukon to align with a provincial organization so that they could compete at the national level. B.C. accepted Yukon into their association.

Win’s efforts were rewarded with an honorary life membership to the Yukon Curling Association and in 1983 she received the Outstanding Service to Curling award from the Canadian Curling Association.
