Curlers give curling a try at this year’s funspiel

24 teams played for fun

Terrace saw 24 teams hit the ice at the curling rink on Nov. 2 for the annual Sherwood Brewhouse Funspiel.

Unlike a traditional bonspiel, the funspiel is intended to be social day for curlers of all skill levels and to encourage newcomers to try curling in a pressure-free environment with no winners.

The event included a few players from Prince Rupert, along with corporate teams from Northern Savings Credit Union, City of Terrace and Sunset RV sponsoring the junior girls’ team.
