Lots of curling happening at the Club !
The Windsor rink of Arnold Burnard, with Shelley MacDougall, Ryan Whitehead and Monica Driscoll, won the Provincial Club Mixed Championship Jan. 27. Two teams from Middleton played with many home spectators cheering them on. The team skipped by Les Smith with Susan Coulter, Irwin Banks and Stephanie Harvey advanced without defeat to the qualifiers. The team skipped by Larry Drew with Cindy Robar, Jim Marshall and Becky Robar secured the Consolation round. Well done, all the participating teams!
The Afternoon League curlers enjoyed the Frank West Spiel which happened today at MCC. The team skipped by Cindy Robar with Carol Mahar, Dan Prought and Kathy McKay earned the right to have their names on the Frank West plaque!!! Son Karl West presented the plaque to the winners. Thanks to coordinator Jean Fry and all the participating teams who enjoyed two games separated by a lovely soup lunch!
The Afternoon League has teams going to Bridgetown on Friday (8th) for the first of two days of Home and Home. Good luck, MCC!
This Saturday, the 9th, sees the popular Valentine's Funspiel, coordinated by Dave and Nancy Acker. Individual curlers with family and friends are gathered into teams with lots of red, pink and hearts on the ice. Two six end games plus a soup and sandwich lunch with heart sugar cookies for dessert. Prizes for everyone and lots of fun!!!!
