Thirty two teams from across the City took to the great AMCC ice March 22-25 to compete for some cash and bragging rights at the very popular Senior (aka Archie) Mens Spiel.
The exceptional efforts of the organizing committee, daily prize draws, superb ice conditions as well as much appreciated Bar and food service resulted in many accolades from curlers and spectators. Over the years this spiel has earned a well deserved reputation, so much so that Archie has the luxury of referring to a waiting list in the event that teams must drop out on short notice.
Friday afternoon's First Event final saw the Albert Bazinet team from Fort Rouge (pictured) make relatively short work of the Jerome Kirby foursome from Deer Lodge. AMCC teams of Wayne Johnson, Paul Batchelor, and Lawrie Hogg also made it to the finals with Wayne winning the Second Event. Based on the very positive comments it would appear that the 2017 Spiel will also be over subscribed.
