Young curlers do club proud at NSSAF re­gion­als

Annapolis Valley Register - - SPORTS - Karen Sotvedt

There was lots of ac­tiv­ity for mem­bers of Mid­dle­ton Curl­ing Club last week, both so­cial and com­pet­i­tive.

League play con­tin­ued as nor­mal for the first time in a while – no snow days, no hol­i­days, no stormy nights.

Ja­dyn Phin­ney, from the club’s ju­nior pro­gram, skipped a team with Brooke Thomas, Kate­lyn Tat­ter­sall, and Mary El­liott in the Nova Sco­tia School Ath­letic Fed­er­a­tion re­gion­als, which took place in Kentville.

They played and won three games in one day go­ing into the tour­na­ment, and won the con­so­la­tion di­vi­sion the fol­low­ing day.

In ad­di­tion to the ju­nior pro­gram, Ja­dyn also curls in the West­ern Draw league and is be­com­ing quite at ease in com­pe­ti­tion. And for two of her team­mates in the NSSAF, this is their first year curl­ing.

So­cial Events

The cal­en­dar held a num­ber of so­cial events at the club in ad­di­tion to curl­ing. The win­ner of Fri­day night’s pot at Chase the Ace was long­time mem­ber Gloria Field – and as it was her birth­day it was a very fit­ting way for her to cel­e­brate. How­ever, she did not draw the ace, so then there was ad­di­tional cause to cheer – the draw will go on for at least an­other week, with the pot over $2,200.

And speak­ing of birth­days, friends and fam­ily of Ge­orge Barker gath­ered at the club on Sun­day to mark his 97th birth­day with a day of so­cial­iz­ing, curl­ing, eat­ing – in fact, there is noth­ing much you can add to these three es­sen­tials for a good get-to­gether.

This was the third year in a row that Ge­orge’s party has been in the club and in­cluded both cur­rent and past club mem­bers as fam­i­lies move around but come back to ac­knowl­edge his big day.

Big Break­fast

The Big Break­fast on Satur­day was suc­cess­ful as al­ways and means there is only one more in the club cal­en­dar be­fore the curl­ing sea­son ends, so make sure you keep the morn­ing of March 24 free for this pop­u­lar event.

The an­nual Spring is Here funspiel is next week on March 10. There are still a few spa­ces avail­able for this one day of curl­ing – in­di­vid­ual en­tries, two six-end games, lunch and prizes for ev­ery­one.

Club fun­spiels do not re­quire the en­trants be a mem­ber or even a curler. Many times the first time some­one has curled in a team has been one of these events.
