For 20 years, we at FLESS have had a One-Day-Bonspiel which involves the FLESS Junior Curling League Curlers.  For their bonspiel, they are asked to invite, a family member or a friend to join them for the day.  This year we did things a little different and had two parts to the bonspiel, a competitive side (secondary curlers) and the regular side (elementary curlers and guests).  We had four teams on the competitive side and they played a round robin with each games being six ends.  The regular side we had eight teams and the teams each played three four-end games.  The winners were calculated on points for wins, ties and ends scored.  In the Competitive side the team of Michael Van Dijk, Ryan Van Dijk and Seth Lupton from Vanderhoof came in 1st place with Herbert Hummel’s’ team from Fraser Lake placing second, Robert Byron team from Vanderhoof in 3rd and Fraser Lakes’ Zack Peterson coming in 4th.  The boys had a great time and look forward to having a few games against each other throughout the school year and curling in the bonspiel again next year.

The regular side of the bonspiel went very well also with Rajah Singh, Diana Lindstrom, Matthias Steiner, Therese Steiner and Sean Habsburg placing 1st, Kailee Duncan’s team 2nd, Julian Chmelyk’s team 3rd and Lara Hartman’s’ team in 4th.  After the curling was all done the curlers went upstairs for Pizza, dessert and beverages.  Families were invited to join the banquet and prize presentations.  Talk about success, there were over 100 people upstairs to participate in the process. The curlers presented Diana Lindstrom, Carol Carter, Fran Armatage and Irene Sandback with flowers in appreciation of their time dedicated to the Curling program.  It was a great year and we look forward to more success next year.
