Reds win Countryview Closing Spiel on final round
Posted Monday, April 6, 2009 by derekm
Once again, the Countryview Golf Course Closing Bonspiel came down to the last round - Blue could have pulled it out, but they couldn't get their act together during the final pressure games, so Red won again. Pictures will follow later and (apparently) explain all. Elmo and Cookie made a re-appearance, after being absent last year. The battle of the mascots was back on in full force! Many are still nursing bruises today after a few scuffles broke out. It was like a game of Hoser Hockey, off the ice. Lots of fun once again. There was a big goodbye and a standing ovation for bartender Connie, who is leaving us this year. Thanks to Countryview Golf Course and other sponsors, to icemaker Lance, bartenders, volunteers, and participants.

Jhn DeLuca, Paul Horne, Danielle Girard, Helen Verhulp
Karen Currie, Leita Chisholm, Mike Lafontaine, Monique Gauthier

Blues, with help from Rob's hat, pull into narrow lead at Countryview closing spiel
Posted Saturday, April 4, 2009 by derekm
A great time was had by all on Friday night at the Countryview Golf Closing Spiel - spinnin' tunes on the old record player. The winner of the "best interpretation of your hat" went to Rob Young from the BLUE team. From his "little boy" sailor hat - right down to his striped socks, swim shorts and thongs (the kind you wear on your feet!) - he was dressed for the event - all in "little boy" blue. PICS to follow later (unless his lawyer intervenes!)
By the way, the BLUE team are now ahead 83-77 - but all that is needed is one RED win, with all ends to Red - and RED can be back on top!
Drop by the Club today and see all the fun! Don't forget the Karaoke this afternoon!
Posted Friday, April 3, 2009
After the first round of play at the Countryview Golf Course Closing Spiel, the red team are leading the blues by a score of 46 to 42.

Countryview Golf Closing Spiel details
Posted Wednesday, March 25, 2009
Sign-up now for the Countryview Golf Closing Bonspiel, April 2-4. Single-entry, red vs blue: all teams will have a colour. Points from all teams will be accumulated by colour, with the winning colour winning the prizes.
This year's theme is "Hats off to Curlers". Create yourself a wonderful costume based on your HAT of choice, making sure it reflects your team colour - red or blue!
For example, if your hat is a sombrero, come as a Mexican Senor/Senorita. If you wear an engineer's hat, come dressed as a train driver.
Use your imagination!
Here's the tentative agenda:
Thursday evening (if enough teams): Curling, Munchies, Games
Friday: Curling, "Bedtime Snack", tickets go on sale for reverse-draw for a one night membership for next season
Saturday: day will start with morning treats. Lunch from noon-1 pm will be from the barbecue (weather permitting).
Other entertainment will take place throughout the day, and a supper will be served (menu TBA).
Don't forget to wear your team colour proudly!
2008 Report:Well, the curling year at the Cornwall Curling Club ended with a bang - Blue Rocks beat Red Rocks in the Countryview Golf Course Closing Spiel. The spiel began with Red ahead on Thursday night, but Blue pulled out all the stops on Friday night to take the lead, and they held on until the end. Friday night - what a party!. We were treated to fabulous food from the chefs at the Culinary Institute, and the music from Moovin' 'N Groovin' got everyone in the mood for a great flashback to the 50's and 60's. Many Thanks to Karen and Carl Currie for their continued support of the club, to the participants for joining us in the fun, to all members who volunteered their time in any way to help us out, to Lance for the great ice (as always), and to the bartenders for putting up with all of us. See you all next year!

Reds win Countryview Golf Closing Spiel
Posted Sunday, March 25, 2007 by derekm
Click here for even more photos from this event, courtesy of Heather Mair from U. of Waterloo, who was a special guest of the Club for this event.The Red team defeated the Blue team by a score of 168 to 159 to win the annual Countryview Golf Closing Spiel. The Blue team pulled out all the stops in the final games, staging an on-ice pep rally, and winning several games to narrow the gap, but the Reds prevailed in the end.

The reverse draw for a free one-night membership next season was won by Gord Peters, while the Gordie Hermann rink won the potato peeling competition, peeling a tray full of spuds in just 48 seconds, and helping greatly in supper preparation! Speaking of supper, the roast chicken was wonderful (as was the strawberry shortcake dessert)!
