Congratulations to the Whirlies (Hannah Horten, Lily Irvin, Claire Wilson, Jane Wong and Emma Irvin) of Evergreen Curling Club for winning the 2014 Waterfall Junior Bonspiel at Evergreen Curling Club in Portland, OR. By winning this event they also become the champions of the USWCA Western Region for 2014. Great job, girls!
Four junior teams competed during the bonspiel, held March 1st and 2nd. Runner-up went to the team of Steven Roberts, Jared Rutherford and Christopher Lowe. The Turtles (Jesse Jimerson, Zachary Grubb, Marvah Gorlowulu and Patrick Casey) captured the second event title with second-event runner-up going to The Giraffes of Curling (Anna Roberts, Alli Crockett, and Rhiannon Kuns).
All of the curlers had a great time and look forward to playing again next year. Many thanks to all the parents and other adults who brought food, supervised draws and helped in many ways. They brought so much food that it took three Sunday league shifts to finish all the left-overs. Thanks also to USWCA and especially Leslie Armstrong, chair of the USWCA Junior Bonspiel Committee, for providing the trophy and pins and for supporting and publicizing our first ever junior bonspiel!
