Masters Plus Bonspiel

7th Annual Masters Plus Bonspiel starts Thursday here at the Cornwall Curling Club

The Cornwall Curling Club is getting ready to host its 7th annual Masters Plus Bonspiel on Thursday November 21st and Friday November 22nd. Masters Plus teams include one player who is age 55 or older (the “Plus”), and three players who are age 60 and over.

A warm welcome is extended to all 16 teams entered, representing six different curling clubs from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.  Off-Island teams are from Antigonish, Sackville, Sackville/Moncton, Sussex/Thistle St. Andrews in Saint John, and the Heather club in St. Andrews. All Island teams are from Cornwall. Draws are 8:30 and 11:00 am, and 1:30 and 4:00 pm both days.

The host committee wants to thank the volunteers and staff of the Cornwall Curling Club as well as daytime and junior curlers at the Club for their cooperation as they will miss some regular curling draws. A special thank you is extended to all the bonspiel sponsors for their great support.

All curling fans are invited to come out and take in the top-quality curling. Many of the teams have curlers who have won both provincial and regional titles.

Here are the skips and the draw:
