Afternoon Adult League enjoys another successful bonspiel

The Adult Afternoon League hosted their annual bonspiel on November 29 with a total of 18 teams coming from as far away as Fort Saskatchewan, Castor, Forestburg, Lacombe, and Stettler. Together with many of our members from the Rose City Curling Club, the teams enjoyed a full day of curling competition followed by a delicious turkey supper provided by Ron Baier. A singing and acting ensemble from “About Time Productions” were also on hand to provide some great entertainment to close out the day.
