The Castor Curling Club was full of the sport’s next generation over the weekend of Feb. 4-5.
Fifteen teams over the two days were competing in the Pam Dunkle Memorial Funspiel, a bonspiel held every February for students.
Four teams from Grades 4-6 took part in the first day of the festivities on Feb. 4 while Grades 7-9 were well-represented with 11 different teams taking part.
According to organizer Dena Boxma, “the kids had a lot of fun.”
The concession was operated both days by Tammy Cooke, who offered a wide variety of items for competitors and observers alike to snack on.
While it was a funspiel and no prizes were handed out, those taking part did not leave empty-handed.
According to Boxma, thanks to donations all of the participants received water bottles to take home.
The Pam Dunkle Memorial Funspiel is held in honour of Pam Dunkle, a former first responder and avid member of the curling community who lost her battle with depression in 2017.
