4-H members shuffle snacks, crib with the Drop-In crowd

The Funspiel floor curling tournament held in Endiang last Monday had 16 teams compete

The Funspiel floor curling tournament held in Endiang last Monday had 16 teams compete, with participants from Stettler, Castor, Halkirk, Delia, Donalda and Botha, as well as the local Endmoor players.

In a “funspiel” names are drawn at random from all players entered and teams are formed from the draw.

In first place was the team of Irene Brooker, Darryl Ashbacher, Olga Cox and Annette Meyer.

Second place went to Boyd Jackson, Ada Church, Doris Schilling and Eleanor Huber.

Hans Cluver, Gloria Ventnor, Jack Grams and Erma Marquart captured third spot.

Everyone went home with a curling prize and the lucky draw winners were Annette Meyer, Shirley Bates, Eva Nielsen, Bob Green, Charlie Thompson and Doris Schilling.

Tuesday was crib night at the Endmoor Drop-In Centre. Top score went to Mickey Tucker, while Bill Graham came in second. The Drop-In group enjoyed the company of the Byemoor 4-H Beef Club. The 4-H members brought snacks for the crib players to enjoy and the older members played a few games of crib with the Drop-In members. The visit was entertaining for both groups.

Next crib night will be Dec. 4 at 7:30 p.m. with all welcome to attend, no membership is needed.
