Curling club starts season with bonspiel and beer

The Sylvan Lake Curling club held their first event of the year over last weekend

The Open Bonspiel was open to any combination of women’s, men’s and mixed teams. Connie Cartwright, curling club member, reported on the event saying that the bonspiel was a fun event enjoyed by all participants.
