Season Opener Bonspiel


Season Opener 2017

The first bonspiel of the season happened on Nov. 11 at the Fergus Curling Club. The club offers an instructional few weeks called "Curling 101" to teach the proper technics to new curlersand then when the schooling comes to an end the club has a Season Opening Bonspiel for the new curlers. This year the Curling 101 had about 30 new curlers. This spiel joins the new curlers with more experienced curlers for a fun day and to have the new curlers enjoy the curling and fellowship of a proper bonspiel. This year it was won by the team skipped by Carl Gray with 331/4 points.
