Sylvan Lake curling season ends with a four-day cashspiel

Curlers from across central Alberta attend the event

Over 24 teams from across central Alberta attended a four-day open cash bonspiel conducted by the Sylvan Lake Curling Club between March 17 and March 20.

“It is a great way to end the curling season as a club: curling against teams from other communities and having fun the entire weekend,” said curling coordinator Crystal Koller.

The bonspiel was made a success with support from volunteers and sponsors.

Teams varied in skills level from beginners to competitive curlers. All teams curled at least three games followed by a roast beef banquet.

“Everyone had so much fun and are looking forward to attending it again next year,” said Koller.

The curling season officially ended March 25.

“Considering there were a few uncertainties about the 2021 curling season the club had a successful year out on the ice. Many people tried curling for the first time and joined our club.”

Koller hopes to kick start the 2022 curling season with a free try-it event for ages 10 and over on Oct. 1.
