29 Mar 2009 – The 2007 Mixed Doubles champions Sean and Bridget Becker won the opening event of the 2009 season when they won the Open Doubles tournament hosted at Naseby's Maniototo Curling International on Sunday 29 March.

They beat a field that included the 2008 title-holders Scott Becker and Brydie Donald as well as the Australian champions Gerald Chick and Jenn Thomas.

24 Jun 2008 – Local teams again proved too strong for the Aussies, with Peter Becker's team winning the final of the Earnslaw One Trans Tasman against the previously unbeaten four skipped by his son Sean.

The Earnslaw One Trans Tasman Tournament is an "unofficial" international curling tournament held annually between teams from New Zealand and Australia.

13 Sep 2007 – The Mixed Doubles Tournament scheduled for this coming weekend, 15th & 16th, is now an "Open" doubles tournament!  It will still be played under International Mixed Doubles rules, but now 2 men or 2 women can play together, if they wish to. Entries are accepted up until Friday lunchtime!

Maniototo Curling International are looking for volunteers prepared to help out during some weekends, & also during some week nights. Membership of the Curling Rink is on offer, to those willing to assist!
