Deanna (Hemstad) Rindal – Builder

A life-long love of the sport of curling has given Deanna (Hemstad) Rindal the opportunity to travel the world and be a part of many national and international events. She has become one of Canada’s top on-ice officials in the sport. It started at an early age for Deanna as her mother Muriel, father Knute and older siblings all were active curlers. Deanna took up the sport in high school making it to the provincial Junior finals in 1983. From there she has become a fixture at the Prince Albert Golf & Curling Club as not only a player, but an organizer and administrator for many leagues and committees. She completed her Level II Coaching in 1990 and became a Level III Official in 1994, and her proficiency as an official has been rewarded. Deanna has been the Head Official/Alternate Head Official at numerous Northern and Provincial Championships since 1990. From this, Curl Canada and the World Curling Federation has recognized Deanna as she has officiated at 8 National and 6 International Events, including the Women’s Worlds in Japan and the Continental Cup in Las Vegas twice. On the ice, Deanna has a professional approach that has made her a top official in the country for the sport of curling. This, mixed with her personable nature off the ice, makes Deanna Rindal a person Prince Albert can be proud of. Please welcome as an inductee as a Building into the Prince Albert Sports Hall of Fame: Deanna Rindal.
