Low registrations sink bonspiel for second time

For the second time this season, the Stettler Curling Club has cancelled its opening bonspiel.

For the second time this season, the Stettler Curling Club has cancelled its opening bonspiel.

Originally scheduled for Nov. 13-15, low registration prompted the club to reschedule the opening act for this past weekend, Dec. 4-6. Unfortunately, low registration struck again, Steve Gerlitz, one of the club’s board members, said.

“It’s a busy time of year,” he said, noting that he believed that was behind the low sign-ups only two teams registered for the event, he revealed. However, he remains optimistic for the rest of the year.

“The next bonspiel is the Farmers and Farmerettes in January,” he said, adding that he hopes to see enough teams register for a great event.

As for the opening bonspiel, it’ll be one of the topics at this month’s board meeting, with the intent right now being to try and reschedule it for a second and, hopefully successful, time.
