Congratulations on the 61st anniversary of the Men's Skyline Bonspiel. What a fantastic event that took place this past weekend at the Haliburton Curling Club. Kudos to the very hard working committee of Dave Moss, Kent Milford, David Ogilvie, Andy Glecoff and Steve Colliver. There were 24 teams altogether with 22 out of town teams that ventured to Haliburton from all over the province. Delicious meals, and fantastic entertainment from Carl Dixon on Saturday night helped make this a fabulous bonspiel and one that will have these teams coming back again next year! Congratulations to everyone.
