Terrace Legion gearing up for annual bonspiel

It's the 59th year for the curling classic event plus darts, 8-Ball and crib zone playoffs for those who are interested

Terrace’s Legion kicks off the new year with lots of activities, including its annual bonspiel, darts night, 8-Ball and crib.

The Legion in Terrace left 2013 behind on a high note. The Choir night held in December was an extremely successful event with everyone in attendance having a fun-filled evening. The New Year was ushered in by a full house and much thanks goes to the staff and volunteers who showed up for their service and efficiency.

As the New Year begins, the Executive and membership of Branch #13 would like to express their sincere thanks to the citizens of Terrace and area, our sister organizations and especially the businesses who have supported us last year and throughout the years with personal involvement, man hours and donations.

Despite the wet and chill on the 14th, a quorum was present for the first meeting of the year and reports were heard from outgoing committees.

The 59th Annual Legion Curling Bonspiel is well in hand with 18 teams already registered. This ‘spiel has always been known for its fun and its prizes and this year the prizes are more and better than ever. There are even flights from Terrace to Vancouver available to some of the lucky winners of events.

The Thursday night drop in darts is escalating in popularity – so members and bona fide guests grab your darts and come join the fun. If you’re interested in competing at the Zone level, there will be a playoff in the Branch in February and the winners can travel on to Smithers for Zone playoffs. Winners there will go on to Chilliwack for Provincials and Orleans, Ontario for National finals.

Zone playoffs for 8-Ball and crib will be held in the Branch on Feb. 15/16 with the winners of those events headed to Provincials in Powell River for 8-Ball and Revelstoke for crib. Winners from Provincial can look forward to competing in North Bay, Ontario for Crib and Tecumseh Ontario for 8-Ball.

These are just a very few of the things that Legion members have the opportunity to participate in. You too could be involved. Applications for membership are available at the Branch. It is an awesome feeling to be a part of giving back even a little bit to those who gave so much for us.
