On March 18-20, 2016, twelve intrepid Bucks curlers headed to the Schenectady Curling Club in Schenectady, New York, for the Elisabeth Childs Challenge, the Grand National Curling Club women’s five-and-under bonspiel. The theme was “Geek Chic Weekend," and all curlers were encouraged to let their geek flags fly! There were lots of Harry Potter references, super heroes, and even an epic show down between a Star Wars team and a Star Trek team. I forget who won (maybe I’m not as BIG a geek as I thought?), but the Star Trek team did win the first end. (“We drew first blood.”)
The Bucks County Curling Club teams were:
404 Team Name Not Found
Does This Count as Our Gym Credit?
Jesseka Kadylak Leonard
None of us came home with hardware, but it was a GREAT weekend spending time with other curlers while enjoying good curling and fun t-shirts and costumes. I did come home with a few new club pins for my collection. And, in what was an unusual draw schedule, one Bucks team was eliminated from the spiel by another in a Bucks vs. Bucks showdown, and another was eliminated by a Philly team, our sister club.
But, what DID we win?
BROOMSTACKING! Pins will last only until you lose them, but broomstacking memories last forever.
