It was a very busy weekend from Feb. 3-5 at the Alida Rink when the annual Alida Oilmen/Farmers Bonspiel was held with eight teams participating. After evening draws on Feb. 3, a Calcutta with auctioneer Dellan Mohrbutter was held. On Saturday a beef supper with all the trimmings was served to approximately 150 guests. The final games of both the A and B-events were played after supper, resulting in the A-event being won by Competition Transport of Carnduff, and the B-event winner Shaw Earth Moving Team of Gainsborough.
The Calcutta winner was Kristopher Potapinski and second place was Parry Peet. Two benches by the ice with an engraved plaque in memory of Lynette Peet were purchased by the club from the proceeds of bracelets made by Heidi Magotiaux and sold at the funeral gathering at the Peet farm.
Later in the evening, the silent auction winners were announced and prizes were picked up to bring this event to a close. Congratulations to all winners.
Kitchen Group 4 was back at the helm and they set a new Breakfast Challenge record of serving up 65 breakfasts. Appreciate all our local regulars who attend this event as well as all guests from the surrounding area, especial those from Redvers. Kitchen Group 1 is in charge next on Feb. 12 from 8-10:30 a.m.
