CCVa had a booth at Carytown's Watermelon Festival this past Sunday and we had a blast! There's nothing love curlers love more than talking curling with others, and we met so many future curlers we can't wait for our next Learn2Curl classes on August 29 and September 12! Tons of people were amazed to see their first curling stones and brooms in person, and we had plenty of fun explaining the game using the table top curling game!
We'll be sure to be back next year, and hopefully we'll still have the GNCC Arenas trophy proudly displayed in the center again after we won it this year!
We had a great time hosting the GNCC Arenas at the Prince William Ice Center from August 31st to September 2nd, so a big thank you to all of the teams and volunteers that helped make it a great event! A special thanks is owed to Rich and Kirsten Collins for serving as the Bonspiel Chairs and putting everything together, as well as all of the volunteers that pitched in to help prepare the ice between the draws, particularly Michael Dobbs.
Congratulations to CCVa's very own Sam Sparks, Brent Cooke, Mary Millage, and Travis Hamilton for winning the whole thing, CCVa's first ever bonspiel victory! You can see (most of) the play by play of their victory over Woodstock's Flanders here at Curling Geek. As for the other events, Ocean State's Rosler won the 4th Event, with Long Island's Team Spensieri and Team Yang respectively winning the Second and Third Events.
Also, congrats to all the other CCVa teams, particularly Team Burk for making it to the Fourth Event and Team Collins for making the Third Event Finals (after defeating CCVa's Team McBride)!
The full results are below, including the Calcutta results.
