Cornwall hosting 3rd annual Masters Plus spiel Nov. 19-20

The Cornwall Curling Club is getting ready to host its third Masters Plus Bonspiel on Thursday November 19th and Friday November 20th. A Masters Plus team has three players age 60 and over (“Masters”), and a fourth player age 55 or over 55 or over (“Plus”). This year there are 16 teams entered, representing 9 different curling clubs from all three Maritime provinces. Off-Island teams are from Antigonish NS, St. Andrews NB, Truro NS, CFB Halifax NS, Sackville NB, and Moncton NB. Draws are 8:30, 11:00, 1:30 and 4:00 each day. The Diane MacKay rink from the host Cornwall club won last year’s bonspiel and will be back to defend their title. Last year’s runners-up, the Ken Nichol team from Sackville NB, are back, too.
