The Pincher Creek Curling Club hosted teams from as far away as Calgary in a 2 day mixed curling bonspiel on Friday and Saturday March 6 and 7.  10 teams vied for the best scores in A and B divisions.  "This is really for fun," said organizer Jessie Nelson.  The bonspiel was the chance to paly with mixed gender teams.

Each team played 3 games, without a clear winner, so the competition moved to a point system.  Each team had the opportunity for every member of the team to draw to the button,  an attempt to put their rock as close as possible to the center or 'tee' of the house.  This was part of a cumulative score that was factored in for final placements.  The curling club will have one last funspiel this season, starting March 27.
