Highlander Curling Club Junior Bonspiel
On December 15, the Highlander Curling Club held a Junior Bonspiel with Teams in attendance from the Bluenose, Highlander and Chedabucto Curling Club. Lots of friends and family were on hand to cheer our youngest curlers on as they played their games.
Each game was 5 ends long and full of excitement and great shot making. The overall winners of the Tournament were from the Bluenose Curling Club. Team members from the New Glasgow based rink included: Jack Higdon, Conrad Roberston, Joe O'Neil, Cullen Park and Ben Hingley.
Congratulations to all the participants. It was a great learning experience for our teams and lots of fun was had. A big thank you goes out to Jim Marlow and Wayne Richard for having the ice in tip-top shape. Also thanks to the parents of our curlers who brought food, got the kitchen ready and helped clean up afterwards. Couldn't have had as good a bonspiel without you!
