The annual Kenmac Energy Mixed Funspiel, with a roster of 16 teams, took place on Friday, Jan 22nd and Saturday, Jan 23rd this year. Although there were changes made to adapt to our current COVID-19 situation, a great weekend of curling was had by all!
Friday, each draw was treated to pizza from Sam’s Family Restaurant and trivia by Greg Lucas following their six end game. Prizes were donated by Kenmac Energy to the two winning trivia teams: Our drinking Team has a Curling Problem and Sticks and Stones (Gill/Gallant). In addition to the regular prizes, David Fullerton won the Friday night 50/50 draw of $108.
Saturday morning started with freshly-brewed coffee, muffins, and cookies supplied by Country Style. An amazing turkey dinner lunch was provided by Sam’s Family Restaurant in Cornwall, and the best part was that it was hand-delivered by none other than Fadi Rashed himself. We are very glad to have such an amazing local business as neighbours!

After the morning games, a brain teaser “Picture Puzzle” game was played, with the winning team on each draw being awarded Cornwall Curling Club gift certificates. Jean Anderson was the winner of our Saturday 50/50 draw and she took home $119.50.
Kenmac Energy provided all prizes for the event and the top four teams were awarded Mel’s gift cards ranging from $140-$200 per team.
At the end of the day, Brent Irving, Myrna Sanderson, Jody Sanderson, and Angela Sanderson won first place.

We are very fortunate to have Kenmac Energy as our sponsor for this annual event. Their ongoing support and generosity are very much appreciated by all who participate!

In addition, we would like to thank Fadi Rashed, and his staff at Sam’s Family Restaurant in Cornwall, for providing the amazing service, food, and being a longtime supporter of the Cornwall Curling Club. Our food was amazing and was always delivered promptly and with a smile! Everyone was impressed, well-fed, and raved about all of the yummy food!

As with all our events, we have many people to thank for their time and energy in helping us make this spiel a success. We would like to especially thank Bryan Sutherland for creating the draw. Additional thanks to our manager for all the behind the scenes work and setup for the event. We are very grateful to Brent Irving and his helper extraordinaire, Angela Sanderson, for maintaining the ice on another very tight schedule. We would not have had half as much fun without Kelley Farrar and Al MacCormac tending the bar and helping us keep things clean and sanitized. Many thanks to Derek MacEwen for posting all of our updates and photos to the club website for this spiel, and every other event! And last, but certainly not least, we would like to send a special shoutout to everyone who stepped up to help us out in any way over the weekend — there were many of you – THANK YOU!
