Here are the results from our annual Edgar Sceles Memorial Bonspiel… after a 3 game round robin schedule the top four teams out of eight played in a 1 vs 2 and 3 vs 4 game to decide the champ and 3rd place. In the end Team Luddington won the trophy and donated sterling silver pins from the Sceles family. They beat Team Brymer for the hardware. In the 3 vs 4 game Team Long beat Team Connolly. Our closest to the pin winner was Junior curler Vanessa Dort who was 13.5″ from the pin. Our 1st 50/50 Draw winner, with help from Little Rocks curler Carly Sangster and President Ray Bates, was member Mary E. A. Connolly taking home $182.00. Thanks go out to the Sceles family for thier donated pins, to the MODG, CIBC, Robin’s Donuts, Maker Yer Own Wine & Beer, Big G’s, and MacDonald Chrysler for the donated prizes. Other prizes were bought by the club. Thank you Paul Long for picking those up. As always we like to thank all the members who donated food and their time to make this a great event for the club. I personally would like to thank Maurice Landry, Mary E. A. Connolly and Paul Long for helping me organize this event. Finally thank you to Neil DeCoff who played us some great tunes on Friday night.
Our annual Edgar Sceles Memorial is happening soon on Jan. 25/26th. As of now the games will be 8 end games like last year. It may change to 6 ends if we get more than 8 teams. I will attach the poster and the sign-up sheet for teams for the spiel will be up at the club tomorrow. Please do your best to not have, for instance, 2 skips on a team or 2 mates on a team. Makes it unfair to other teams. A list for donations of food will soon be posted. Entertainment on Friday night the 25th will be provided by member Neil DeCoff. Please pass the word around for this spiel and for people to come on out on the Friday night to hear the music. Please note that anybody can enter this spiel. Prize donations are also needed. We, the bonspiel committee, will be approaching our sign sponsors for donations of prizes plus we will be purchasing a token few to make the prize table more attractive.
