A different way of curling seems to be seeping the country and it is called "Doubles Curling". In this game only 2 people play against 2 others. Some of the rules are the same but others are different. For example they only curl with 6 rocks not 8. The Fergus Curling Club fully embraces this new game and on Feb. 22 Donna Bessey has sponsored a trophy for a bonspiel at the club. This year the winners were from the local club a quarter point over a team from Milton. Bryce McGowan and Karen McMillan came out on top and Donna Bessey is on the left.
