No sticks at family fun skate on Saturday


The Family Day Fun Curling Bonspiel at the Byemoor curling rink drew 10 teams for the fun-filled day with many young curlers participating. The event involved not only curling but participation in some “Minute to Win It” style games for points as well. The Rod Moench family of Hanna were the winning team and the day concluded with a potluck supper.
