CARLYLE - The second annual Farmers verses Friends bonspiel was held at the Carlyle Curling Rink on March 1 and 2.

The rules to join in on the fun were quite simple.

Teams could consist of men, women or both, but the farmers side needed to have at least two agriculture producers on it.

The 10 teams that entered each played four games with six ends. It was a round-robin format with a final game to determine the winners.

Teams were entered by Dave East, Devin Brown, Kim Mclean, 306 Ag (Ethan), Devin Faber, Chaelyn Boutin, Jason Yunick, 306 Ag (Lane), Erica Easton and Precision Ag.

Games began March 1, and in the evening, supper was sponsored by 306 Ag. Weir’s Catering was on hand for the meal.

The next day was filled with games, and lunch was provided by members of the Carlyle branch of the Royal Canadian Legion.

Throughout the day, people came and went to watch the games and join in some socializing.

Raffle draws and a booze cooler were available to be won and each team went home with a prize.

There were four divisions, with the A side being won by Jason Yunick’s team and the B side being taken by Erica Easton’s group.

Precision Ag won the C side, while 306 Ag (Lane) captured the D side.

The March 2 supper was sponsored by Farm Credit Canada and E Bourassa and Sons, and provided by The Office Bar and Grill.

The Carlyle Curling Club thanks all their sponsors, as they make events like this possible.
