The Shawville Curling Club was packed on Feb. 17 as nearly 100 people gathered for an annual bonspiel in support of the University of Ottawa Heart Institute.
Twenty-four teams of players from all over battled it out for the Billy Kuehl Trophy, named in the memory of an avid curler and Pontiac resident, who died of a heart attack at the age of 48.
Erin Powell explained that she and her cousin Sheena have helped out with the bonspiel since 2012. She explained that the event is a longstanding tradition in the club, and it's also a personal cause for her family.
