The Crooked Billet kicked off on Thursday evening with two strong draws featuring some fantastic competition. Many of the games were nailbiters, coming down to the last few stones to determine the winners. We're updating the brackets in real time as much as possible on the Crooked Billet page, so check in there to keep tabs on how your favorites are faring this weekend. Competition starts again this morning bright and early at 9:00 a.m. We hope you drop by to catch as much of the action as you can!
For those who are visiting the Bucks County Curling Club for the first time, please note that while our ice is dedicated, our club is still located in an arena. We suggest that you dress a little more warmly than you otherwise might if you're planning on hanging out and watching the games, as the viewing area is right on the ice. But don't worry -- our warm room is quite toasty.
Also, remember to don your most spectacular headwear this evening for our hat contest. Winners of this highly subjective sartorial endeavor will be handsomely rewarded!
It's T-minus two hours until the first draw of our first annual Crooked Billet Bonspiel, and we couldn't be more excited to welcome 128 of the GNCC's finest curlers to our club for a weekend of good food, good fun, and good curling. We've been working hard to perfect our ice, prep a bevy of foodstuffs, and insulate our aluminium benches for maximum backside comfort. I'll be updating the blog daily with spiel highlights, so check back frequently!
