And we’re off !!
Club spirit is alive and well here today at the Cornwall Curling Club!!
And our hearts are full!
This morning the first game of the Red and Blue event~ Junior Division took place and there have been some great shots !!
We have a total of 25 junior curlers participating today, along with 13 special guests! All of our special guests today have represented Prince Edward Island at National events, like the Scotties, Brier, Masters, and the Everest Curling Club and Seniors National Championships!!
All of your junior curlers were combined with curlers they do not normally curl with and each of our honoured guests joined a team.
There were lots of close games here today… but more importantly LOTS and LOTS of smiles and broom taps!
A genuine thank you to Prince Edward Island Curling Legend Susan McInnis and Peake and McInnis Ltd. Insurance Brokers for supporting our event today and providing a delicious pizza lunch from Sam’s Family Restaurant & Pub to all of our young curlers!!
We also extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of our special guests who were so generous in donating some amazing swag!
Our juniors received some awesome jerseys worn at National events, and most of our young curlers put them on immediately upon receiving them and were so proud! One curler was heard saying, after receiving an Asham hat donated from our very own PEI Scotties Champion Julie Scales, she was so excited to “wear it all summer!”
Okay here’s the points update…
So far Team Blue has added to the overall club points total.
Coming into today’s event Team Blue was leading 11-7 over Team Red (after our Little Rockers and Novice Division took place on Tuesday).
Today, after our first games, Team Blue added 25 more points, and Team Red added 21 points.
This means Team Blue is leading the Red and Blue points race 36 to 28!!!
Let’s see what this afternoon will bring!
Currently, Curl PEI is hosting a ‘Hit, Tap, Draw’ competition…stay tuned for the results!!
