Broadview 49ers Bonspiel was held Feb.13-15, 2012 with 14 rinks participating: nine out-of-town teams from Grenfell, Kipling, Percival, and Whitewood and five local teams. There were three full days of interesting shots and good socializing.
Winners, decided by a point system were:
1st – Allen Katona (Kipling); 2nd –Tie between two Broadview rinks - Bud Lerat & Ron Saleski; and 3rd Ev Thompson (Whitewood)
A wind-up supper was held Wednesday evening.
There were several lucky door prize winners and a raffle draw winner (all from items generously donated by local and out-of-town businesses and anonymous contributors) and a 50/50 draw.
The success of this bonspiel was due not only to the support of area curlers, but also to the many local volunteers who worked in the kitchen and in the rink and to the delicious food donations.
We appreciate all the help and support from the community. It is also nice to have former curlers and friends drop in for a visit or lunch. Our gratitude to you all.
