Sticks and Stones

Sticks and Stones Bonspiel


2018 Sticks 1
They came in all shapes and sizes. They came in bags, cans and boxes. At the annual Sticks and Stones Bonspiel at the Fergus Curling Club pop can pull tabs are collected throughout the year by the curlers to give to the Elora Legion to  help purchase wheel chairs for those who need them. This year was the biggest year yet for the tabs with thousands brought to the club on Nov. 16. The principal organizers Bruce Hawkins on the right and Tony Saretta on the left along with Bryan Knox, one of the curlers from Alliston who has curled in this bonspiel since it started 14 years ago look over some of the pop tabs brought in by the curlers.
