Another Teaser Light success
The seventh Teazer Light Under 15 - Under 13 Junior bonspeil went off without a hitch on the weekend.
Abbey Penny, Aidan MacDonald, Sean Beland and Nick Mosher of CFB Halifax ended up on top of the heap in the Under 13 section. They are coached by Shelley Mosher.
Craig Weagle, Scott Weagle, Owen Purcell and Thomas Mosher of the host Chester club took the Under 15 title under the tutelaige of Chris Mosher.
The Teazer Light is unique among junior curling events in that the entire bonspiel is run by other juniors, those that are over the age limit for this spiel but still in the junior program.
Christmas plans announced
The annual Chester Curling Club Christmas Party will be an afternoon affair this year. It is slated for 1:00 to 5:00 on the afternoon of Saturday, December 13.
All the daytime and night time curlers are invited and no one will have to get up too early or stay up too late. Admission is only $5.00, sign up at the club before December 6.
There will be food, music, holiday cheer and a little curling, too. See the poster here.
Snowball plans coming together already
Don't be left out in the cold the February. The annual Snowball Mixed Bonspiel will the highlight of your winter. It runs on Valentine's Day weekend, 2015, Ferbruary 13 to 15 at the Chester Curling Club.
Planners have tweaked the format a little this year to get curlers home a little earlier Sunday afternoon. The Saturday night social will still feature dinner for all the curlers. But the dance, which has been poorly attended in the last few years has been taken off the agenda. Instead there will be a late evening draw after dinner.
This spiel is usually full. The first 24 paid entries will be accepted up to January 25, 2015. The poster is here. Registration form here. If you need more information email the club.
