The Cornwall Curling Club is getting ready to host its 5th annual Masters Plus Bonspiel on Thursday November 23rd and Friday November 24th. Masters Plus teams include three curlers age 60 and over, and one who is at least 55. This year there is a full draw of 16 teams entered — representing six different curling clubs from Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Off-Island teams are from Antigonish, CFB Halifax, and Sackville NS. Island teams are from Montague, Crapaud and Cornwall. Draws are 8:30, 11:00, 1:30 and 4:00 each day. The Judy Burgess rink from Truro, who won last year’s bonspiel, will not be back this year to defend their title, so there will be a new champion.
The Host Committee would really appreciate if anyone can voluntarily give up their locker for Thursday and Friday during the bonspiel and also want to thank the daytime, stick, and junior curlers at the Club for their cooperation as they will miss some regular curling draws and junior practices.
Curling fans are invited to take in the action as many of the teams have curlers who have won provincial titles. There is no charge to watch the curling.
