Thirteen rinks competed in this past weekend’s oilfield bonspiel at the Carlyle Curling Club.
Winning the A event was Team AC Power. The team consisted of Chris Mass, Jim Hill, Donald Willock and Dave Wetsch.
IJack Technologies (Saturn Team) won the B event. Curling were Dave East, Brad Caldwell, Brandy East and Keira Brown.
The C Event winners were the Cliff Nankivell Trucking Team, which included Garett Makelki, Claudia Mullis, Debbie Bourhis and Dwain Davis.
The winners of the D Event were the Triton Drilling and Services foursome of Tyler McLean, Juel Sprout, Lise Reischke and Alaina Buchanan.
Included with the individual $60 entry fee, curlers were guaranteed a minimum of four games. They also had an opportunity to win cash prizes in the four events, and everyone received a great door prize.
Two suppers were also included with the entry fee. The banquet was held Friday night and catered by Rylan and Cindy Weir. Pizza and wings were served Saturday night.
The Royal Canadian Legion served the midday lunches which were also well attended. In addition to local rinks, there were curlers from Alida, Glen Ewen, Kisbey, Lampman, Pierson, Man., and a team from Alberta.
Brandy East and Laura Thompson were the organizers of the event and were pleased with the turnout and sponsorship.
“The bonspiel ran smoothly which is a tribute to all our volunteers who helped,” said East. “There was a lot of good curling out there, but the real purpose of any bonspiel is to compete and have fun. And we did just that. Also, a big thank-you to the many sponsors that made this event a great success.”
Chaelynn Boutin is on the Carlyle Curling Club executive and oversees promotions and upcoming events.
“The next scheduled event is the annual Farmers and Friends bonspiel, which will be held March 4th and 5th,” said Boutin. “Two farmers are required per team with men’s, women’s and mixed teams welcome. Please contact either Amy Rutten or Dave East to register your team.”
