The Club's annual Junior/Senior Bonspiel is just around the corner...this fun, family-oriented spiel will be held on the weekend of March 23rd-24th.
Teams will consist of 2 Juniors and 2 Seniors (with the Juniors as skips) and teams with similar abilities will be placed together in 3 divisions. Members and non-members of the Club are invited to participate in this bonspiel.
Sign up sheets have been posted to the Junior bulletin board. The cost per team is $20 and the deadline for registering is Sunday, March 10th.
This is a fabulous opportunity for young curlers to play with their parents/grandparents....don't miss out !
How amazing and exciting is this?
Three generations of the same family curling in our Club...from left- Wendy Sheppard, Megan Sheppard and Phyllis Furlong.
Wendy is a long-time member of the Chester Curling Club while Megan joined just this year. Phyllis, on the other hand, has been curling on and off at Chester for 50 years; in fact, she curled as a skip in the first year of the Club's operation. At a young 84 years of age, she is still a commanding presence on the ice!
Congratulations to the Sheppard/Furlong family on their success in the sport of curling and their continued support of the Chester Curling Club!
