The new season is almost upon us so now is a good time to recap the summer Bonspiels.

The Canadians are coming! The Canadians are coming. We just got back from the 2012 Rocky Top Bonspiel at the Great Smoky Mountain Curling Club in Knoxville, TN. To say this year’s spiel was more challenging is an understatement. There were 14 full teams from Canada (all but the BC team from Ontario), there were two teams with at least one or two Canadians and one team with two Canadians AND a World Champion Curler (Yes Debbie McCormick) who, by the way, is the most gracious person and we are indeed fortunate to have her coming to the Classic.

The Triangle Curling club held its annual member appreciation Bar-B-Q and Annual General meeting on Saturday May 5. There was a great turnout of about 35 members and for the most part the weather cooperated as the storms did not hit until after the food was eaten and the games over. The meeting featured reports from all the committees and the President who gave a report of the past several years showing how much we had progressed. Elections were held for 4 open board slots but as there were only 4 nominations all were voted in by acclimation. Your new board members are Andrew Foulger, Amy Hobbie, Steve Janosko and Lance Wright, congratulations to all.

Four Triangle Curling Club teams participated in the 2012 Cherry Blossom at Potomac Curling Club during the weekend of March 22 – 25.

Team Jaun ( Chris Jaun, Patrick Rabenold, Amy Hobbie and Andrew Foulger) finished at 1 -2. Team “Southern Comfort” (Andrea and Chris Howard, Nick Witcraft and Mario Riveron) finished at 2 -2. The weekend was topped off by a Sunday appearance for Team Jackson (Murray, Kathy, Jimmy and Maureen Jackson) who finished at 4 -1 and won the Fourth event. Congratulations to the Jackson Clan (Jim and Maureen are Murray’s Uncle and Aunt).
