An annual bonspiel running over 40 years returned to the Shawville Curling Club on Saturday, where 16 teams competed all day long for the top spot.
It was the 42nd edition of the Quyon Lions’ Bonspiel, and even after all this time participants are eager to don their sliders and stretch their sweeping arms in anticipation of taking home the trophy.
“This is a fundraiser every year for the Lions,” said event organizer Glen Leach.
Helping support the Quyon Lions’ various charitable donations, 16 teams competed from 9 a.m. until seven in the evening for their shot at first place.
