FOREVER YOUNG - From left

The Lacombe Seniors Bonspiel once again was a huge success, with teams from throughout Central Alberta attending from Nov 16 – 20th. The unique format of the ‘spiel allows curlers to compete in a division of their choice – Mixed, Stick or Masters. Curling one game per day with cash payouts for each win, and a final payout for the division – everyone left with a little cash in their pocket and had a great time. Lunch was supplied daily, and a noon hour banquet on Wednesday brought everyone together for great food as well as entertainment provided by Flashback Freddie! Each team received a door prize. Local sponsorship is fantastic and all the community businesses are to be commended for their support!
