Charlotte had two teams representing the club this past weekend at the Coastal Carolina Curling Club’s first annual Lighthouse Beach Spiel in Wilmington, NC. Both teams won two of their three respective draws, with Team J2D2 (Jeremy Hozjan, Jim Kotwicki, Dawn Hozjan, David Barley) finishing 3rd, and Team Grits ‘n’ Granite (Steve McKee, Rich Martin, Lindsey McKee, Carol McKee) finishing 7th. The bonspiel used “Points and Ends” scoring to rank the field of 16 teams that included visitors from as far away as Minot, ND (where ducks apparently make great shots).
Congrats to our sister club up in Raleigh for taking 1st and 2nd. A BIG congratulations to Coastal Carolina for hosting their first bonspiel with great success! The weekend and the event were very well-organized and everyone involved had nothing less than a great time. We couldn’t have asked for better hosts and look forward to returning in the future.
