Blue increases lead slightly at Red and Blue Stick Curling event

An absolutely awesome day yesterday here at 29 Cornwall Road as 32 Stick Curlers celebrated the end of the year with a fantastic Red and Blue event!!

Our awesome organizer John Dunsford did an exceptional job of leading a fun club-wide points race for the Stick Curling Division…while also wrapping up a very successful stick curling season!!

This year we had more stick curlers than in the history of the club~ from beginners to experienced curlers, it was a great season!

There was lots of Red and Blue action yesterday, as the Red Team had their work cut out for them to try and catch the Blue Team who were way ahead heading into the points race!

Previous to the day’s event the Red Team had 57,000 points and the Blue Team had 86,000.

There were some close games and the Red Team gave it a good go~ but the Blue Team gained 102,000 more points, while the Red Team gained 90,000.

It was a super busy day for our Club and we didn’t manage to get as many photos as we hoped~ but we did snap a few!!

During the event, the Red and Blue Stick Curlers made a lovely presentation to our awesome Ice Technician Brent, and to our Club Manager Lori, who were both very touched.

We started the day with some yummy cinnamon buns kindly baked by Patsy Sanderson, and some donuts from Robins Donuts. We were so happy to partner with Sam’s Family Restaurant & Pub to provide a delicious pizza lunch.
