Members of the Brainerd Curling Club aren’t shy about traveling to other clubs for bonspiels. We love our bonspiels! Read about who’s curling where and how they did. We want to celebrate those who are representing Brainerd at other curling clubs, so send us your photos, names and results!
No worms at the Early Bird Bonspiel in Fargo-Moorhead
Brainerd was well-represented by two teams at the Early Bird Bonspiel at the Fargo-Moorhead Curling Club Oct. 26-28. The men’s team, behind Skip Michael Williams, won the C Bracket Championship. They lost to a team from North Dakota State University 9-2 in the first game but got revenge in the championship against them with a 5-4 win in an extra end without the hammer!
The other Brainerd team was the Sweeping Beauties, which won one and lost two, including a loss to a junior team from Bismarck, or as Ginny called them, “the kids team.” They’re in the photo below.
A boatload of fun at the 1,000 Lakes Bonspiel
The Brainerd Curling Chicks went up to Grand Rapids for the 1,000 Lakes Bonspiel last September and brought home hardware by winning the D Event. Congratulations! Kelly Sharkey played as well, joining with friends from other clubs.
