The Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network Stick Curling Tournament, hosted by Charlie and Etta Reid, was held here at the Cornwall Curling Club today, with a full draw of sixteen teams – half from Cornwall and half from other clubs, taking part. When the delivery sticks were put away and the results were tabulated, there was a four-way tie for first, with four Cornwall duos – Barry and Myrna Craswell, John Dunsford and Myrna Sanderson, Ruth Stavert and Gloria Clarke, and Etta Reid and Elaine Hughes emerging as winners.
