Big Barge team takes Sicamous Legion Fun Spiel

Ten teams compete in Sicamous Legion's Funs Spiel.

Tia Ciserella-Lemieux releases her rock in play Saturday during the Legion Fun Spiel.

The Annual Legion Curling Fun Spiel was on Friday February 24 and ended on Saturday, Feb. 25.

We had a total of 10 teams who came out and had a great time.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank some people who helped make it possible. Thank you to the Ladies Auxiliary for a spectacular and delicious dinner. Thank you to Julie Robinson and Ken Garrow whom helped me obtain the prizes, and to Dawn Backs who did the curling draw and collected the entry fees.  A big thank you to the Sicamous Curling Club for once again managing the curling rink with volunteers to look after the ice and the bar.

A big thank you to our local businesses that generously donated and supported our efforts with donations of prizes for all of our curlers.

Our format was different this year for the 21st Fun Spiel as we did a round robin, which allowed everyone three games. From that we used the wins and losses, along with the total points, to determine the winners.

The Big Barge #1 team was 1st with 3W – 0L and 17 points.

The Terry Rysz team was 2nd with 3W – 0L and 16 points.

The Saskask team was 3rd with 2W – 1L and 18 points.

I would like to mention that I watch the Saskask teams Saturday morning game at 8 a.m., they curled and made shots like they were in the Scottie tournament. It was great curling. A special thank you to the two teams who put the fun in the Fun Spiel they dressed up for their games.

I hope to see you all back next year and bring more teams with you. See you all next year same time same place.



Jeff Mallmes,

Sports chairman
