On Saturday April 6, Kinuso curling season wrapped up with the Loggers Bonspiel.

Roberta Hunt and the rest of the curling club would like to thank Gerry and Dean Doerksen for making ice all year and the janitors, kitchen staff, secretary and board of directors for countless hours of volunteering.

Kinuso regular league had 14 teams. It is a super league so teams can consist of any group of people. One of the women’s teams, the Hunt team, won. The prize was outdoor lanterns.

Julia Hunt won the draw for the 42 inch TV that the Brick donated to the regular curling league.

The commitment and steady use of the regular league makes bonspiels possible, Roberta says.

In January, Kinuso hosted a Ladies’ Bonspiel with a theme of diamonds and denim. Sixteen teams participated. First in the A division was the team skipped by Amy Saitz. First in B was Bev Willier, and first in C was Barb Severson. The winning teams received gift cards.

The Men’s Bonspiel in March also had 16 teams. It was a pay-as-you-win bonspiel. Winners were ELS Construction the A, Lee Hunt in the B, and CM Forestry in the C.

Also in March, the Skeeters Bonspiel had 10 teams of children from grades three to 12. The winning team was Madison Doerkson, Alex Davis, Airial Isador, and Hanna Davis. They received a gift card to Corner Kitchen in Kinuso.

The Loggers Bonspiel had 22 teams. All were mixed.

Team members had to work in or have relatives with a historic connection with logging.

First in the A Event was ELS Construction. Frosthill won the B, and CM Forestry won the C. Prizes were meat and aprons.

On Friday April 5 at the Loggers Bonspiel, Chris Skrynyk stops sweeping. Ken Skrynyk (skip) awaits the rock. Opponent Ralph Davis (skip) looks on.
