Lakefield hosts Strathcona Cup curling
by Christina Millington
The Scots invaded the Lakefield Curling Club on Jan. 16, in hopes of regaining the Strathcona Cup.
Lakefield hosted one round of the 2013 bonspiel.
The tournament began with a bagpiper piping the curlers onto the ice in preparation for the traditional ceremonial gestures which involved a toast between the coaches and bagpiper.
Let the games begin. Curlers took to the ice, onlookers cheered from the gallery pulling chairs as close as they could to the window, peering down at the curlers with encouragement and support.
According to John Davis, vice president of the Lakefield Curling Club the Strathcona Cup will be played for in 437 games at 111 different curling clubs spread across 10 Canadian provinces.
Once all scores are tallied and the Team with the most points will be awarded the Strathcona Cup Championship for 2013.
