Giddy Masters Bonspiel
Wednesday Feb. 8 was time for the masters of curling to come to the Fergus Curling Club for their annual bonspiel. The Masters Bonspiel has been going for about 20 years and is still going strong. This year saw gentlemen from Guelph, Alliston, Orangeville, Acton, Cambridge, Elmira and Listowel as well as the local club. They played 2 eight end games and the winners from the first draw won the championship by only 1/4 point above the winners of the second draw.
The team who won the second draw was from the Fergus Curling Club L to R: skip Rick Marshall, lead Lorne Wilson, second Dave Roberts and vice-skip John Kitching. Kitching and the gentleman on the right Steve Graham were the organizers of the bonspiel.
The championship team was also from the Fergus Curling Club consisting of L to R: lead Bob Hook, vice-skip Dave Freure, skip Jake van der Valk and second Bruse Hawkins. John Kitching who organized the day is on the left.
