Hutch Bonspiel enjoyed by all

It has been a long-standing tradition at Peace Arch Curling Centre to have a bonspiel during the holiday season for curlers, family, and friends. This year’s event was a great success – the draw was filled two weeks in advance – with all 16 teams enjoying themselves.  As a first timer at “the Hutch,”  I met many curlers that I don’t see during my usual league play and I found the event was an excellent opportunity to build a convivial club feeling.

Congratulations to the winning team of Ralph Chernenkoff (skip), Jane Robinson (third), Gerry McArthur (second) and Cathy Ross (lead).  An enthusiastic gallery watch the well-played final game between the Chernenkoff team and the Jones rink (Martha Weaver, lead; Diane Rollinson, second; Joel MacDonald, third, and Bill Jones, skip) who finished in second place.

Many thanks to our bonspiel chairman, Laurie Hearns for his time and effort at this busy time of year and the ever-present 50/50 master John Newbury and his assistant Pat Woodward.
