Local curlers score a rare eight-ender

It’s aptly nicknamed a snowman!

Hirsch Creek Golf and Winter Club was abuzz with excitement last week during the weekly men’s curling league – one of the teams scored a very rare eight-ender.

An eight-ender, also called a snowman, is a perfect score within a single end of curling. In an end, both sides throw eight rocks, and in an eight-ender, all eight rocks from one team score points.

The team that scored the eight-ender consisted of lead, Joe Bruno, second, Winston Michell, third Sean Greenslade and skip Ryan MacDonald.

MacDonald finished the end with two clean takeouts to complete the rare achievement. After listening to stories in the clubhouse, this is only the second time in club history an eight-ender has been witnessed.
