On Monday, nearly 50 floor curlers descended on the Endiang Community Hall to participate in the Endmoor floor curling funspiel. In a funspiel, players from all communities are mixed to play just for fun. The winning team was: Sue Boswell, Big Valley; Margaret Lewis, Stettler; Olga Cox, Castor and Herb Gutsche, Hanna.
Participants also joined in from Delia, Botha, Gadsby, Halkirk and Endiang. Every player went home with a prize and some were fortunate to win some raffle prizes as well.
The next funspiel in Endiang will be the “Sadie Hawkins Day” bonspiel on Feb. 29, 2016, when the teams must be skipped by a lady.
Anyone interested in joining in regular floor curling are welcome to join in at the Endiang hall at 1 p.m. on Mondays.
