My First Bonspiel

We had our end of the season all weekend curling tournament (bonspiel). We lost our first game Friday night, and our second game Saturday afternoon. We won our Sunday morning match and then lost our Sunday afternoon match. We then had to play our final regular season game and we won that so our record over the weekend was 2-3.

That was a lot of curling. My knees and shoulders are sore.

What was a tad discouraging is that we really didn't get better over the course of the season and our losses in the bonspiel were particularly bad. We lost Sunday afternoon 9-1 and we didn't even finish the match. In our lone victory in the bonspiel, we got ahead 7-0 and barely held on to win 8-6.

Overall though I had fun and am glad I took up this somewhat niche sport.

It sounds like you had a fun but exhausting weekend. I don't think I have curled since High School Gym class. I'm not all that co-ordinated and spent much of my time falling : )
