Wauwatosa Curling Club
2020 Chili Spiel
Held January 25, 2020
by Matt Hying
This past weekend, many brave, and hungry, curlers pitted their stomachs and their stones against one another. In the end, there could only be one. After three rounds of 4 grueling ends Erich Gross took the belt (cutting board) as Chili Spiel Curling champion! It was a well fought battle with Ryan Toman as the runner-up, just 2 points behind Erich. Helen Lau sat in third only a single point behind Ryan. Amanda Dobbs snuck in at fourth a mere 2 points behind Helen.
Sitting in the middle of the pack on the ice, but top in our tummies was Patrick McNally. He sits high with his chili taking gold in his first ever Wauwatosa Chili Spiel. Congratulations to all who won! Better luck next time to all who lost. There was a special prize for the bottom team of 4 but I believe we shook our brooms in shame enough during the Spiel so I will not name them.
Special Thanks goes out to Jess and Mike for all your help in the kitchen and bar during the Spiel. Shout out to Oscar Koebel for assisting with the ice as well.
