Teams of employees from local businesses, or friends and families, hit the ice at the curling rink on Nov. 5 for the annual Sherwood Mountain Brewhouse Funspiel.

The event included curlers of all different skill-levels, who diverged into 19 teams to play against each other throughout the day.

“The group had a great time,” said Lisa Bulleid, a director of the Terrace Curling Club.

Not a traditional bonspiel, the funspiel is about giving people an opportunity to try curling and just having a fun time on the ice, so Bulleid said there were no team winners. Each team curled three games of four ends, and the evening was rounded out with door prizes and appetizers.

Corporate teams included in the event were from the City of Terrace, Telus, the Ministry of Environment, Royal Bank, Skeena Sawmills, Carlyle Sheperd, Progressive Ventures, Investors Group and Skeena Gravel.
