Our ExxonMobil and Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline Skins Cash Bonspiel finished up this past weekend. Another successful bonspiel with 8 teams competing this year with a team from the SACCC in Port Hawkesbury, Before I announce the winners I would like to thank the 2 major sponsors for this event, ExxonMobil and Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline. Without their support over the years an event like this could not happen. The donated money and prizes they provided made for a great event. Can’t thank them enough. Thanks to Lorraine and Blair Brymer who always get this together for us. Thank you’s go out to our bonspiel committee for getting us 8 teams. The 8th team was put together at the last minute on Thursday. Thank you to Ray Bates for putting all the spares together to play 3 games. Thanks to all who helped out with ice, the bar, the kitchen, the food donations, the music from Greg Favaro and Jason Wright on Friday night. And now to the games… After three round robin games the top four were decided late on Saturday. They were Team Long 1st in the ExxonMobil division, Team MacNamara 2nd in the ExxonMobil division, Team Brymer 1st in the MNEP division, and Team Sangster 2nd in the MNEP division.
