Last fling bonspiel held at Lakefield Curling Club
On Wednesday, March 26 the Ladies Division of the Lakefield Curling Club held their 25th annual Last Fling Bonspiel, and a fun, successful event it was!
Participating in the day’s events were 16 non-Lakefield teams, representing 10 different clubs from the region, including Peterborough, Lindsay, Keene, Ennismore, Marmora, Bancroft, West Northumberland, Whitby, and St. George’s in Mississauga.
The Lakefield Curling Club was turned into Olympic Village and these 16 teams came to “Go for Gold”!
Colourful individual team banners hung from the ceiling; tables were decorated in white, red and gold, with red carnation bouquets that were later used for the medal winners; our members dressed up in Canadian red and white; the “Sochi girls” added the perfect touch to the day’s festivities; a fun slideshow portraying the Olympics with the “Fling” participants garnering much laughter; and the closing ceremonies, complete with podium, medals, flowers, kisses on both cheeks, and the raising of the gold medal winners’ flags (while Queen’s “We Are the Champions” played as the background anthem), capped off a wonderful day!
Many thanks go out to our Annual sponsor, Home Hardware of Lakefield, as well as the numerous LCC ladies who generously volunteer their time and energy to the success of this bonspiel!
