Congratulations and a huge thank you to all who participated in the Marpole Ladies Open Bonspiel that happened on Jan 23rd-26th, 2014. It was a full event with 32 teams including ladies from Seattle and Korea. All teams attended were very appreciated.

Cheer and competition overflowed with a lot of fun and great ice. A quick mention that there are 2 unclaimed raffle baskets: Ticket # 40509 and #41567 so check your numbers if you have tickets!

24 teams from clubs such as Gibson, Tunnel Town, NSWC and Coquitlam participated.
Three teams, led by Bill McNeil, John Anderson and Gary Cormack represented Marpole.
The bonspiel was a great success with four draws each of the first two days and two on Wednesday.
Many compliments were heard regarding the high quality and speed of the ice and the competition. As always everyone said how much they enjoyed competing at Marpole. For many, it is their favourite venue.
