When the ladies bonspiel is held it is a ton of fun and huge revenue for the Curling Club. A delicious Pot Luck Supper is held and the concession and refreshment services were tended by the men of the curling club who volunteered their time. The Saturday evening banquet consisted of the supper, program, hilarious t-shirts worn by the teams with prizes for the best.
