Durant rink wins successful Kenmac Energy Funspiel!

The annual Kenmac Energy Mixed Funspiel, with a full roster of 24 teams, came to a finish Saturday evening with the rink skipped by Paul Durant finishing on top.

Teams played one six end game on Friday evening and two more on Saturday. Off-ice, on Friday night the curlers were treated to mussels supplied by MR Seafoods Inc, plus other snack food.  Then, back by great demand, TIP-ER-BACK got things hopping for the curlers to hit the dance floor and dance the night away!

Saturday morning started with freshly-brewed coffee, and muffins supplied by Country Style as well as a few snacks provided by our own members.  A selection of pizzas was delivered at lunch time from Pizza Delight in Cornwall. During the day, a couple of word games were played, 50/50 tickets were sold, with visitor Kristen Monkley walking away with $175.00  At the end of the spiel, curlers were treated to a piping hot turkey dinner with all the trimmings and dessert, catered by Alan Carmichael.

Zach Bell, and Darcy Murnaghan along with his son Mac, from Kenmac Energy presented eight teams with prizes of Mel’s Gift Cards prizes.  The winning Durant team, which also included mate Marg Stewart, 2nd Eugene Murphy and lead Joanne Durant, were presented the coveted Kenmac Energy plaque, as well as gift cards.
