Season nearly over
Machine rugby players put athleticism to the test on ice
The Windsor Curling Club is preparing to wrap up another successful season.
The site played host to a number of tournaments throughout the 2017-2018 season. Amongst the popular events were the Windsor Home Furniture Mixed Bonspiel, the Phoenix Cup tournament, the four-day Scotties qualifier, and the Machine rugby club’s annual bonspiel, which saw rugby athletes donning colourful costumes to compete earlier this year.
The club, which hosts free learn to curl nights near the beginning of each season, offers curlers a variety of choices. There are leagues (senior’s, men’s, ladies, mixed, and competitive) to suit all skill levels. Ice is provided from October to April.
During the off season, the facility is rented out for private events. The Pig Dog ‘Old Boys’ team may have lost in the A Pool semi-finals but still had a fun time during the Hants County Rugby Football Club’s annual Machine curling bonspiel in Windsor. A total of 12 teams took part in the event, with athletes visiting from across the province. From left, Jessica Vouligny, Marissa Moore, Megan Gass, Sarah Clarke, and Daniel Pomerleau were all smiles as they represented the Spitfire Arms Pub at a recent curling bonspiel in Windsor. After the first three rounds of play in the four-team Boyd division, the group was at the top of the standings. A total of 16 teams competed in four divisions. The Spitfire team lost in the semi-finals to the Mixed Nuts. The winner of the A final was Team Zissou.
