The excess snow is providing Manitobans with winter ambiance and following the rigid cold snap, this past weekend was ideal for curling enthusiasts during the Cypress River Annual Men’s Curling Bonspiel.

The spiel, hosted from January 13th to January 15th, had a turnout of nine rinks vying for top billing in the tournament.

Capturing the First Event and bragging rights was the home town Cypress River rink skipped by Rick Truelove with teammates Tim Truelove (third), Paul Hutlet (second) and Martin Anderson (lead) with Gord Claeys filling in for Anderson in the last game.  They edged out the Glenboro foursome of Curtis Wytinck (skip), Kyle Curtis (third), Vern Smith (second) and Ken Dowd (lead).  Their team leader was Jason Hokin.
