Team Kish wins Crystal Heart Curling Classic

L-R: Dawn Kish, Heather Pitt, Tracey MacDonald, Laura Scott

In a strong field of 64 women’s curling teams from across the provinces and around the Ottawa Valley, our very own North Grenville Curling Club’s Team Kish went undefeated.
Fighting through four days of stiff competition, and deep snow, were Dawn Kish at skip, Heather Pitt at third, Tracey MacDonald at second, and Laura Scott at lead. The foursome prevailed over all competition to capture the coveted 1st event Crystal Heart shield. Their worthy opponents were from City View, Pembroke, Renfrew, Ottawa, Barrie, and a player who travelled from Halifax to compete.

This event is a major fundraiser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation, with early numbers indicating a total of $73,000 raised by this bonspiel this year alone! Team Kish would like to send out heartfelt thanks to our club and community members for your support. Whether it be your generous donations to Heart and Stroke, coming out as their cheering section, and especially all kind words of encouragement and congratulations.

Additionally, the North Grenville Curling Club Men had an awesome Spiel as well. Rocking the Seaway for over 125 years, the Prescott Curling Club held its Men’s Invitational Bonspiel January 31-February 1. The North Grenville Curling Club team, skipped by David Brown, with Dan Cook at 3rd, Lester McInnis at 2nd and David Roy throwing lead rocks, won the event. The bonspiel is run in support of Canada’s Beef Ranchers, and all of the curlers enjoyed Texas Beef Burgers on Friday evening and a delicious Melt in your Mouth Steak Dinner on Saturday evening. The event was a total points spiel, with teams split into two draws, where each team played three games. Team Brown won by virtue of the fact that it scored in more ends than the runner-up team.
