The 10th Annual Barbecue Bonspiel is in the books.  We are getting just too good at this.

Debbie on TrainDebbie McCormicks Proshop did quite well  selling Goldline merchandise to lots of new and aspiring curlers.  So much so that the club recieved a  $250 merchandise credit as a thank you.

All 24 teams, participated.   Of note,  We were represented by a fair number of  clubs in the newly formed Mid America Curling Association (MACA).  This region includes the following states:  Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana.  This union of curling clubs will put us over 750 members in our region and gives us 2 votes at General Assemblies.

The newly formed,  Cedar Rapids Curling Club was represented by past members of our club who helped us restart our club in 2003,.  We wish them good curling  as they push forward.

Our furthest curlers came from Utica (NY) and Petersham (MA). Several clubs were very well represented including five teams from Wauwatossa and three from Oklahoma.  Dallas  has returned 4 times running.  While the Dakota Curlers sit at 3 years in a row.   All in all, we want to thank all the teams that have made our spiels as much fun for us as we hope it was for  them.  For a complete list go to

A special shout out must go to the helpers that make it look so easy.  Lucy Valliencourt, and her crew (Food).  Chris Baker who oversaw and put the program together,  Chris Nazar Don Baker , Kyle Baker and Sarah Wruck who pulled in the most money for a raffle ever.  Dan White, Jeff Miles and Crew who oversaw the ice prep. and Most importantly,  Dave Huston who put in all the hard work bringing us the tastiest barbecue to date.
