The cordwood Bonspiel is a Trappers’ Festival event opened to children in Elementary and middle years school. Co-ed teams of four curlers compete on sheets of ice drawn on the skating surface of the Roy H. Johnston Arena. Instead of using curling stones, the curlers use ‘rocks’ made out of round chunks of wood with a bent piece of metal for a handle. The elementary curlers curl four ends with the middle year students curling six ends. The curling is exciting with skips throwing great ‘take outs’, wonderful deliveries and games ending with skips throwing ‘skip rocks’ to determine the winners. Prize and certificates are given to all of the winners. But this is an event where everyone is a winner by participating. Curling starts Friday at 9:00a m for Elementary curlers, and 10:30 am for the middle years curlers. Sign up sheets are distributed to the schools in early February. Thank you to The Town of Pas/Kelsey Rec. for supporting and promoting this event.
