The Northern Ontario Curling Association has honoured Randy Ronnebeck of Kenora.

He received a coaching award on Wednesday, in part for helping wheelchair curlers.

“I'm just very honoured and pleased that the curlers that I'm coaching are so good to work with and try so hard,” Ronnebeck said. “It's a real pleasure to work with, the wheelchair team especially.”

Ronnebeck has been coaching for more than 20 years, the past five of those with his wheelchair team.

The passion for the sport runs in the family, as wife Andrea coaches team Fleury, and his daughter Katie may qualify for provincials.
