Sweetheart Bonspiel

2019 Sweetheart Winners
The members of the team are L to R: Gord and Mary-Ann Skeoch from Alliston, skip Carl Gray and Barb Robinson. 

Friday and Saturday Feb. 8 and 9 was a very exciting time at the Fergus Curling Club. The annual Sweetheart Bonspiel was held with a full compliment of curlers and food was to die for. The theme for this year was super heroes and a number of people dressed up in the their favourite super hero costume. Curlers attended from Paris, Alliston, Brantford and beyond. Winning some lovely prizes, the winners of the day were from the Elora Curling Club L to R: Drew Mazerolle, Tina Mazerolle, Dong Lee, and Tara Lee along with Jeff and Jennifer Gleva who hosted the whole bonspiel presented the trophy. There were two more events that took place on the Friday night that was of note at the club. First of all there was a proposal on the ice during a game of marriage from Tim Hitchcock to Shannon Curran and of course she said yes. Tim delivered the stone seen here down the ice to Shannon with ring in hand and while he was on his knees her proposed. They have been going together for 15 years and long time members of the curling club and this was their special night. The third exciting moment occurred when a local team skipped by Carl Gray from the Fergus Club obtained the highest number of points anyone can get in an end of curling and that is 8. They didn't really realized the feat until they looked at the position of the rocks after the end was over and only then saw it was an 8 ender. This usually never happens in the life of a curler.
