Brainerd’s Team Nelson wins State Senior Men’s title

    Our very own Team Nelson won the Minnesota Senior Men’s State Bonspiel at the Bemidji Curling Club Jan. 13-14.

    In pool play, Nelson’s team went 3-0 with wins over clubs throughout the state to qualify for the final. In the finals, Team Nelson won 5-4 over Team Pustovar, skipped by Paul Pustovar, a former World Senior Champion, decorated medalist, and one of the most prolific curlers in the U.S., not to mention a fixture in the A Event finals of our Annual Bonspiel in December.

    Nelson’s team members: Bob Nelson, Skip; Michael Williams, Vice Skip; Brent Gunsbury, Second; and Craig Johnson, Lead. This is the first time the team members have played together in a bonspiel.
