The Burntwood Curling Club held its last bonspiel of the 2018-19 curling season March 14-15.
The men’s open bonspiel was won by Team Schumann, who beat Team Antila in the A event final.
Team Miscavish beat Team Fell to claim the B event title. The C event final saw Team Brown defeat Team Adams, while it was Team Kennedy prevailing over Team Sime in the D event final.
Twelve teams competed in the bonspiel, says Sam Antila, about the same number as last year
“Everybody seemed to enjoy themselves,” Antila said. “We had really good support from the sponsors.”
He also said the two-day format, which works for up to as many as 16 teams, seems popular as competitors don’t have to dedicate their whole weekend to curling.
Curling leagues are wrapping up their playoffs this week and the ice plant will be shut down after the last set of games are completed March 22. Off-season work to be completed includes completion of new trophy cases, which still have to have glass installed.
“We’ll be able to display all of our trophy history for sure,” said Antila.
One more fundraising fish fry will be held in April and the club’s annual general meeting will take place in May.
