Halkirk curling rink ice ready for upcoming bonspiels

Halkirk Herald

The ice is in the curling rink and just needs to be polished up and then it will be ready for some practice shots. The men’s and ladies’ bonspiels will be held during the week of March 7, but it is hoped that the rink will be used prior to that time.

Call JD or Sandra Johnson to enter a rink or as an individual curler interested in entering the spiels or getting together for some regular fun games.
