     Frank Thompson Memorial Bonspiel  Dec 8, 9 & 11

    This fun bonspiel for all skill levels is a tribute to Mr. Frank Thompson. Frank was a lifeling sportsman and volunteer in the Russell community. Many of Frank's days were spent either on the softball diamond or at the curling rink. Frank also spent countless hours as Russell Curling Club's ice technician, doing so long before modern ice making equipment was available. His enthusiasm for curling and fastball rubbed off on many of Russell's young aspiring athletes. Russell's rich curling success, both past and present, can be attributed in large part to Frank Thompson. 

    Format- 6 end games on Wednesday and Thursday evenings with playoff games on Saturday followed by dinner. Come, meet and play with members from other leagues, day and night.

    $20. Register at the club by December 1st.
