Club president Kelly Volker could not have been happier with the turnout.

Speaking about the bonspiel, Volker said that the club has been hosting such event for more than 50 years.

“This year we had 34 teams who entered to play, which was similar to last year’s entries,” Volker added. “I’ve been involved with the club for the last 15 years or more holding various positions on the board.”

Event A winner was Danny Brown rink from Erskine, in second place was Erick Haustein, also from Erskine.

Event B winner was Kyle Ramstad rink from Bashaw, in second place was Softy rink from Erskine.

Event C winner was Dan McCarther rink from Delburne, in second place was Buck Bernie rink from Elnora.
