A fun in-house bonspiel to kick off the curling season saw almost 50 curlers at the Haliburton Curling Club on Nov. 17 for the Button Bonus Bonspiel Event for fitness fellowship and the chance to win some prize money.

Team Moss made up of Sue Pettitt Linda Boore Cathy Moss and Dave Moss were the eventual winners of the day-long bonspiel and $100 in prize money. Team Jan Ashall was the team that hit the button the most.

The club’s season began in October and the next nine-week session begins Dec. 3. Club board member Glenn Scott said a $99 special for new curlers interested in learning how to play is available and that the program matches an encouraging buddy with each new member to help teach the basics of the sport.

“We’re always taking curlers if they want to come out and join in” he said.

The Haliburton Curling Club celebrated its 75th anniversary last year. For more information visit
