Rambo Curling, Millet


   This last week end The Millet Curling Club hosted a Rambo Bonspiel, with Travis Froese winning the event. The Rambo is a fast moving event with the emphasis on fun.
    For those not familiar with Rambo rules and scoring here is a quick recap. Each Curler competes alone. Five rocks are thrown by every curler for each of the four ends per game. Points are given for closest to the pin, and for rocks in the house. An additional three points for a win are given to the winner of each game. No sweepers, no brooms at the other end to aim at. Most importantly – have fun! A special thanks to Jenny Major for explaining it.
   When asked what makes a Rambo so enjoyable , last year’s winner Bob Kupka says, “The event moves quickly, it’s packed into one evening and one day so it doesn’t take up a whole week end which is nice with all the time commitments everyone has. The tournament itself is like a game of chance too, with back to back winners being rare. It’s just a good time with a relaxing family atmosphere.”
   The Millet Curling Club also held a silent auction which included signed memorabilia from Kevin Martin and his team, as well as other draws to raise money for the club. The club runs a concession and a bar as well.
   Thank you to all the volunteers who make these events possible. The Millet Curling Club couldn’t do it without you.
