What's Happening Around the College?

IV Year Cadet, Brent Maurice, Earns OUA East Division Second Team Honour For 2nd Straight Year
By WJO

Brent Maurice, OUA Hockey All Star - two years in a row.

23496 Officer Cadet, Brent Michael Charles Maurice (RMC ’06) was named to the OUA Division Second Team defense last week. Maurice toiled in all 24 RMC league games scoring 6 goals (five on the power play) and assisted on 15 others for a total of 21 points. 

Maurice has been a highly respected player in the OUA for all his four years but has really blossomed and matured as a leader over the past two campaigns. He also earned Second Team All Star Honours last season. A feat never accomplished by an Officer Cadet at the varsity level in OUA hockey for the past 25 seasons!  

Last season Brent also had six tallies (three on the power play) and had 11 helpers in only 14 games. Last season was abbreviated for this two way All Star,

due mainly to a severe angle injury, he sustained during action early in the season. For a good part of his 14 played league games he pretty well competed on a “leg and a half”.   For the past two OUA campaigns, “Beamer” as he is fondly referred to by his team-mates and fans, averaged exactly a point a game – 38 points in 38 league games. (No stats are available for Years I & II.) 

Excellent numbers for a forward – outstanding for a defenseman!  He maintained this point a game pace in the play-offs, assisting on two power play markers in the two games they lost to UQTR in post season play. 

Well done, Officer Cadet Brent Michael Charles Maurice!

Pourrez-vous relever « le défi du Général »? 

Le 3 juin 2006 se tiendra à Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu la deuxième édition du « défi du Général », une compétition amicale unique en son genre, où s’affronteront des équipes amateures provenant d’entreprises diverses. Il s’agit d’une journée ludique de défis physiques et intellectuels, mettant à l’épreuve l’endurance, la débrouillardise, la logique et le leadership des participants.  Ceci devrait vous rappeler la course à obstacles de votre jeune temps. 

Cette activité parrainée par le Général Roméo Dallaire sert une bonne cause, celle du financement des activités des musées de Saint-Jean. En effet, les fonds amassés lors de cette activité seront versés à la campagne de financement Pour l’avenir de notre passé, menée conjointement par le Musée du Fort Saint-Jean (sur le site de l’ancien CMR) et Le Musée du Haut-Richelieu, afin d’aider les deux institutions à poursuivre leurs missions de sauvegarde et de mise en valeur du patrimoine de la région. Le Lieutenant-général Roméo A. Dallaire (retraité) est le président d’honneur de cette campagne, à laquelle collaborent déjà de nombreux citoyens soucieux de la vie culturelle richelaine.

L’événement aura lieu au Campus Saint-Jean et la population est invitée à venir encourager les participants sur place à partir de 8h00, et ce, toute la journée. Les équipes devront compléter un parcours difficile, croisement de Fort Boyard et d’un « Bootcamp » militaire. Elles devront traverser des épreuves physiques (comme une course en kayak sur la rivière Richelieu) et intellectuelles (comme des énigmes qui ne seront pas dévoilées à l’avance, évidemment!) et devront faire preuve, tout au long du parcours, d’unité, d’astuce et de leadership. 

Si vous croyez que vous et vos collègues pouvez former une équipe gagnante, capable de se démarquer, c’est le temps de vous inscrire. Vous aurez bien sûr le plaisir sain de vous dépasser, de vous mesurer à vous-mêmes, mais, pour ajouter un peu de piquant, pourquoi ne pas lancer un défi à une entreprise rivale ?   L’animation de cette journée sera assurée par le groupe Domisa, partenaire de la campagne Pour l’avenir de notre passé. 

Pour toute information supplémentaire, n’hésitez pas à communiquer avec l’équipe de la campagne de financement Pour l’avenir de notre passé au (450) 347-0649 ou avec Hélène Ladouceur (450) 358-6777 poste 5928.

I have just finished enjoying the March 1 version of e-Veritas, and was astonished to see a description of the last game of football I ever played, at Bishop's University on Thankgiving weekend in 1969.  From the game films we determined later that the person most likely responsible for the severe concussion that ended my "career" was Larry Smith, the fullback for Bishops.   

In the many public discussions about head injuries among athletes since then I have had the opportunity to tell people that story and the follow-up by the military doctor.  He simply said "no further contact sports."  People asked whether I followed that advice.  I have always had to explain that it wasn't "advice", and that my body, including the head part, was at the pleasure of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II in right of Canada. 

The newsletter is as interesting as ever.  Thanks for the memory, Bill.

Greetings Bill and Rolande.

You do a marvelous job of producing the e - Veritas Newsletter.  Many thanks for your superb effort.

In Issue 007/2006 "More on WOI Coggins" #4110 T.K. Morton (RMC'58) referred to Coggins oft-repeated post-parade lament.  Those of us who were at the College in the Autumn of 1952 will remember how we practised day-in-day-out for what must have been weeks in preparation for the visit of the then Princess Elizabeth and Prince Phillip.  Following our best-effort "Royal" parade on the freshly-paved square, Coggins, for the first and only time, in my recollection at least, reversed his famed exhortation:  "With regard to your parade ... O'ive seen worse, O'ive seen bettah ...but not much!"  And he made us feel that he really meant it and I believe he really did.  Great
man, he was.

Classy McGill Coach on his way to CIS Championship.


Martin Raymond

Congratulations to the McGill Redmen and in particular Coach Martin Raymond for capturing a berth at the CIS Hockey Championship later this month in Edmonton.  McGill defeated UQTR two straight, the second game in double O.T. to earn the honour.  

Readers familiar with OUA hockey realize just how tough it is to earn a spot in this championship.  While we were involved with OUA hockey for 10 years as Convenor, we had a great deal of “one on one” with all 16 coaches each season.  Some of the toughest decision we had to make involved McGill, many (most) of them did not go in their favour.  Even though he usually came up on the short end of a decision, Coach Raymond, each and every time showed his Class and respect.  He also won OUA Coach of the Year honours for the second straight season and the third time since he has been coaching at McGill.

We wish Martin and his Redmen the best of luck at the CIS National Championship.

Félicitations aux Redmen de McGill et en particulier à l’entraîneur chef, Martin Raymond, pour avoir gagné une place au championnat de Sport interuniversitaire canadien, SIC, de hockey, plus tard en mars, à Edmonton.  L’équipe de McGill a battu UQTR en deux joutes et la dernière en deux périodes supplémentaires afin de se mériter cet honneur. 

Les lecteurs familiers avec le hockey SUO réalisent à quel point il est difficile d’atteindre une position à ce championnat.  Au cours des 10 années en tant que commissaire SUO, pour le hockey, nous avons eu chaque saison plusieurs « tête à tête » avec chacun des 16 entraîneurs chef.  Quelques-unes de nos décisions les plus difficiles concernaient McGill et la plupart d’entre elles n’étaient pas à l’avantage de leur équipe.  Même si les décisions n’allaient pas souvent en sa faveur, Martin Raymond s’est toujours comporté avec distinction et respect.  Il fut nommé SUO entraîneur chef de l’année pour deux saisons consécutives et pour la troisième fois à titre d’entraîneur chef de McGill.
