Green beer, car bombs and lots of curling

Industrial curling tournament draws a good crowd

Hirsch Creek Golf and Winter Club hosted the annual Industrial Curling Bonspiel on Saturday, March 17.

A packed venue saw the bonspiel field 16 teams competing in the six-end event, an exciting day for the teams.

The event coincided with St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, including green beer, Irish car bombs, draw prizes for everyone and a whole bunch of new friendships formed.

The A event was won by the Doug Oleniuk rink after an extra end versus the Hirsch Creek Golf and Winter Club rink led by Sean Greenslade. Thank you to all who supported and participated!
