Results from the MacLeod Lorway Ladies Valentines FUNspiel….

Our annual MacLeod Lorway Ladies Valentines FUNspiel is complete. Nine teams battled it out to win the big trophy. Judging by the response in the end the ladies had a great time. A BIG thanks goes out to our major sponsor, MacLeod Lorway, who once again helped out financially to put this yearly bonspiel on. Other sponsors/members who helped us out on the prize table were Guysborough PharmaChoice, Cutting Loose Hair Design, Mary K Cosmetics (Mary E. A. Connolly), Oasis Massage, Coldstream Distillery, Peace By Chocolate, Con & Con Construction, Caper Construction, Bowie Electric, Alison Billard, and Elaine Wescott. Two special prizes were awarded yesterday; first was for the ‘Closest to the Pin’ sponsored by Oasis Massage. This was won by Jenna Dort who was 4.25″ from the pin. The 2nd special prize was for the ‘Hog Line” winner sponsored by Cove Quilting (Alison Billard). The winner was Tonya Pelley. Now for the trophy winner, with a 3-0 record, the team from the Highlander CC, Team Doiron, with Skip Joanne Doiron, Clarita Campbell, Lenita Hanson, and Maria Steward.  This was their 2nd straight trip to our bonspiel. Second place, with a 2-1 record, was Team Dobson with skip Paula Dobson, Kim Sampson, Marion Brow, and Elaine Wescott. In 3rd place, also with 2-1 record, was Team Pyle with skip Holly Pyle, Leona Purcell, Erin Brown, and Robin Fulford. Team Pyle also had the best ‘Team Closest to the Pin’ and was awarded a bonus of 10pts. 

A huge thank you goes out to all the guys who donated food to the bonspiel and to some of the ladies who also brought food. Thanks also go out Maurice who ran the bar; Gary, Collie, and Phil who ran the kitchen; George, Gary and Phil who prepped the ice and to Mary E. A. Connolly who went out and bought most of the prizes and helped in getting donated ones. On a sadder note we acknowledged the passing of member Gary MacMaster and community member Bobby Cook whose business, Home Hardware, is a sponsor at our club as of this year. They both will be sorely missed. Here are some photos from the event:
