Beach-themed ladies’ bonspiel participants had a blast

The recent Burntwood Curling Club ladies’ bonspiel gave the 18 participating teams a chance to escape the winter by revelling in the event’s beach theme.

The team of Brenda Davidson, Donna Sitco, Lucy Mayor and Brenda Saunche took the top prize while bonspiel chair Courtney Reeves, Ashley Derbowka, Adrienne Spence and Nicole Marques won the B event. Brenda Laycock, Karen Ceppetelli, Carmen Hepp and Ashley Romanow won the C event, with the D event title going to Jenn Thackeray, Amy Portey, Tammy Parobec and Deanna Kondakor.

“I think it went really well,” said Reeves, who was organizing a bonspiel in Thompson for the first time.  “There was a lot of good feedback from people. Everybody had a good time. The meal was great. We did have a few new teams so that was nice to see. There was a junior team that came from Gillam.”

In addition to beach-themed games like a hidden seashell that earned whoever found it around the club a free shooter, there were also prizes for the biggest end and the first team knocked out.

“It didn’t discourage people that have never curled before because they were going to win something regardless,” said Reeves, who thanked all the people and businesses who helped her to make the event a success. “The event wouldn’t be possible without all the sponsors.”
