MARPOLE LADIES BONSPIEL – A SUCCESS- EVEN WITH POWER OUTAGE FOR SUNDAY SEMI-FINALS AND FINALS
EVENT held – January 19-21st
ENTERTAINMENT WAS OUTSTANDING! What a performance by our entertainer with Elvis and Rod Stewart hits!
We had an interesting and unique end to the bonspiel. Unfortunately, the power went down at around the 5th end of the C quarter finals and did not come back in time to complete the bonspiel. Since it was deemed it would be impossible to reschedule the completion of the spiel, it was felt the fairest decision would be that all remaining teams would share in their event’s winner’s pool of money and all were declared winners.
We appreciate all the ladies teams for choosing to bonspiel at Marpole and we hope to see you back next year.

The Boys are Back In Town! Doug and Gary are hard at play getting the ice install closer to completion! They both look anxious to try out the club’s brand new Ice Master Boss Scraper. So new it is from the future. It’s going to be a great season with fantastic ice!
