The third annual Cecil Hicks Memorial Funspiel was held on February 16, 2019. In the spirit of fun and non-competitiveness that Cecil, a longtime member of the Club and a mentor to many, would have appreciated, the teams were drawn randomly and changed for each game. Each four-end game had a twist in the third end – players had to use a stick, or had to throw the other team’s rocks, or could not employ takeouts. Cecil’s son Les and daughters Sharon and Sylvia were in attendance.
The winners of the Cecil Hicks award for sportsmanlike play were Eric Tusz-King and Donna Sharpe.
Thanks to all the volunteers for all your hard work organizing the third annual Cecil Hicks Funspiell!
Located at 22 Lansdowne Street in the town of Sackville, New Brunswick, the club caters to all ages and levels of interest. With a variety of leagues and levels of competition, as well as a variety of curling and social activities, we're sure to have something for everyone from the complete beginner to national competitor.
There were curlers in Sackville as early as 1901 and Sackville Curling Club was incorporated in 1949. We have three sheets of ice, a bar, a function room, and a kitchen.
We have leagues for mens', ladies' and mixed curling. As well there are programs for junior curlers and for little rocks. The year 2016/17 saw the start of a new league for mixed doubles.
