On the traditional first Saturday of the New Year LCC hosted our 59th Annual Open Merchants Bonspiel, and it was a huge success. In addition to great curling, at a great club, a full house of sixteen teams enjoyed morning snacks, afternoon lunches and a fabulous evening supper.

This year’s team entries came from Niagara Falls, Haliburton, Oshawa, Lindsay, Uxbridge, Fenelon Falls, Bobcaygeon, Norwood, Omemee, Peterborough, and of course Lakefield, as host. Thank you to all for participating.

Not-so-faint praise…

“…well run, great Bonspiel, worth every penny, we’ll be back.”

“…we traveled quite a distance for 2 draws and will be back; having 3 draws would make it even better! The meals, curling and camaraderie are fantastic and Lakefield is one of the destinations that we circle on our calendar!”

“…the commitment from your Club Manager and Ice Maker was fantastic!”

And here are the Winners!
