The Ice Queens hit the rings for a weekend of FUN!!! The Ladies Bonspiel was held November 13th and 14th with 10 full teams participating.
Matos Winery donated a beautiful basket filled with wine, chocolates, and other goodies. Tickets were sold on the basket with Bernie Field being the lucky winner. Bernie won this great prize by participating in a card game of “Chase The Queen Of Diamonds”, not Chase the Ace!!
Many lucky ladies went home with door prizes but 1st Prize in the bonspiel was awarded to the team with the highest points. That team was Gloria Clarke, Elaine Hughes, Etta Reid and Carolyn Crockett.
The FUNspiel showed its true colors by awarding the 2nd Prize to the team with the lowest points. Nola Murphy, Melissa Creighton, Janette Frazer and Clare Mullen were recipients of this prize!!! This was a great twist to the normal flow of presenting prizes and was graciously accepted by all present.
This, which included lots of great food and good times could not have taken place without the help and generosity of many. A big thanks goes out to those who provided food and prizes. A special thank you to the home club ladies who prepared the tasty dishes for our Saturday evening meal.
Events at our club could not be held without the continued support of Bev our Club Manager, Lance the Iceman, Ray our custodian, and our bartenders who for this event were Kelly and Al.
A job well done by all!!!!!
