The Community Bonspiel was a huge success for the Vankleek Hill Curling Club this year. The spirit of the bonspiel is to introduce the game to curlers with little or no experience. Teams are typically composed of two experienced curlers and two less experienced/new curlers. This year we received 30 entries from various businesses within the community. Teams played two games during the week and 12 teams qualified for a final game on Saturday. While the spirit of the bonspiel is to have fun and initiate new curlers, we still crowned a winning team based on a point system. This year Sproule Power Line took the honours with their win over the Sweeping Beauties. Along with those two teams, ten other teams qualified for the finals on Saturday; Trophy Hill, Cronus Farm, Advanced Home Design, PCPS#1, St-John’s 21A, Cassburn United, Cliftondale, VCI, Conways, and Bonnie Brae Farm. The club would like to thank every team who participated this year and hopes to see all of them again next year.
