2019 Mixed Closing Bonspiel Winners and runners up of Divisions A, B, C & D
Feb 16, Third Annual Cecil Hicks Funspiel
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!
Thanks to Nick and Elizabeth for all your hard work organizing another Brown Bag Funspiel! These spiels give us all an opportunity to play with “new people” that we wouldn’t normally get to play with. The food, drinks, prizes, 50/50 (thanks, Hughie) and the people made for a great afternoon!
