CARLYLE - Seventy-two golfers participated in the second annual Carlyle Curling Club fundraising tournament this past weekend at the Carlyle Golf Course.
The event was a four-person best ball and the entrants enjoyed warm but windy weather.
“We were extremely pleased with the turnout, and everyone had a great time,” said Carlyle Curling Club treasurer Mike Lothian. “Thank-you to all of those who came out, to our sponsors and to Terri Field and her accommodating golf course staff.”
The net proceeds from the golf tournament will go towards the installation of air conditioning to the curling club building.
“The curling rink has seen a marked increase in being rented out for various functions during the year, including oilfield safety meetings and the like. We have needed air conditioning for the meeting room upstairs for years now and we are looking forward to its installation,” said Lothian.
Wi-Fi was also added to the building this summer.
With pandemic issues waning, the curling club is looking forward to a full year of regular league curling and several bonspiels. Flooding of the ice surface will begin in October.
The president of the Carlyle Curling Club is Justine Kyle. Lindsay Broccolo is the secretary and Lothian the treasurer. Board members include Robin Brown, Natalie Bloomfield, David East, Zach Brown and Chaelynn Boutin.
