The Lakedell curling rink, located adjacent to the Lakedell Agricultural Hall and arena, beat the mid-winter blues recently.

The Lakedell curling rink enjoyed its first “Crazy Hats” Open Bonspiel which was held on Jan 20 to the 22, 2017. It was a huge success due to the fact we had huge support from many local sponsors and volunteers in the community.

Twelve curling teams participated in the event and we had teams as far away as Spruce Grove. Prizes were given to the best crazy hats worn on the ice. It turned out to be a fun ‘spiel for everyone.

The ice makers, Les Hardstaff and Gus Roth, did an amazing job maintaining the ice for the action packed three day event on two sheets of ice. All the final games were a battle to the end. The skips had to make their final shots in order to win the game.

See you all again next year. Thank you from Les and Diane Hardstaff, bonspiel organizers.
