Bor­der Curl­ing Club holds Emer­son Humphries Memo­rial Fun­spiel

Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS -

Thisweek end a Bon­spiel in mem­ory of Emer­son Humphries was held at the Bor­der Curl­ing Club in Stanstead. Emer­son Humphries was a long-time res­i­dent of New­port. In 1955 Emer­son was part of a group of Amer­i­can and Cana­di­ans who es­tab­lished the Bor­der Curl­ing Club in Stanstead. When Emer­son passed away in 2002, a Bon­spiel was es­tab­lished to honor the work he did to cre­ate a won­der­ful sport­ing fa­cil­ity open to peo­ple of both coun­tries. The rules for this week event re­quire 1 new player per team, and this year the win­ning team in­cluded Larry Lan­ders on the ice for his first time. Larry and his wife Me­lanie have re­cently moved to New­port and have de­cided to learn to curl and en­joy the fun at the club.
