The North Grenville Curling Club in Kemptville hosted the 3rd Colts Curling Series event of the year this past Saturday, December 15, 2018. The ice was great, the food was delicious and 32 curlers with under 5 years experience had a great time!
In the end there were 4 teams left standing between the A and B finals. In the spirit of our Colts Series, we added a new experience to the finals at this event. The four teams had a chance to experience a 7 minute team warm-up and a draw to the button for hammer…just like the pros!
In the B-Side final, Team Periard from the Buckingham Curling Club faced Team Hampton from the Lancaster Curling Club. Team Periard came out on top and took home 4 tickets to an exciting Ottawa 67’s Major Junior hockey game. The A-Side final was a battle between Team O’Reilly from the Manotick Curling Club and Team Gallinger from the host North Grenville Curling Club. After three ends it was not looking good for Team Gallinger down 8-0, but they battled back to send the game into an extra end. After the last 16 rocks were thrown, Team O’Reilly from Manotick took the A-Side title and a winner’s payday of $300!
We would also like to extend a very big thank you to the folks at the North Grenville Curling Club for their exceptional hospitality and support. A good number of people came to watch throughout the day, and we absolutely appreciate it.
Congratulations to all the players that made great shots, met new curling friends, experienced a new curling facility and enjoyed the fun spirit and competition of the Colts Curling Series. Our next event is being hosted by the Buckingham Curling Club, January 12 – 13, 2019. This event is completely sold out, but we do still have one spot left for our 12 team, 2-day event at the RA Centre, February 2 – 3, 2019. This is will be our biggest Colts Curling Series spiel ever, and your team’s last chance to collect points towards qualifying for the 8 team, invitational, season final in March.
