2018 Leaster Spiel
Where less was more!
Held February 3rd, 2018
Twenty-nine people curled in this year’s Leaster Spiel held on Feb 3rd. It was cold and snowy outside but the open bar & taco bar hot lunch warmed our bellies :-)
As you may know, the goal to force your opponent to score more than you because "Less is More" if you want to win. The Newkirk rink quickly learned their lesson giving up (or is it scoring?) 6 points in their first game. By the end of the Leaster Spiel, the Gentles and Dropp rinks were tied with 15 total points and 7 total ends each but Dropp rink had beat the Gentles rink in the first draw allowing the Gentles rink to take home the "Biggest Loser" award.
We also unveiled the Leaster trophy which will be installed in the club this week.
