Oilmen's bonspiel is underway


Nearly 200 curlers are at the Power Dodge Curling Centre from March 27 to 30 for the Estevan Oilfield Technical Society's (OTS) annual Oilmen's Bonspiel.

A total of 42 teams have entered this year's competition. It's down slightly from the 48 entries that were part of last year's bonspiel, but Estevan OTS president Brett Campbell is still expecting a fun weekend filled with socializing and great curling.

The games began in the morning of the 27th. There will be action on the ice throughout the afternoon and into the evening. The games will resume early on the 28th, and happen throughout the morning and afternoon.

The curling will pause in the evening of the 28th for the annual Oilmen's banquet. Cocktails for the banquet will be served at 6 p.m. and supper is at 7 p.m. Other highlights of the evening will include a dance with entertainment from Ten Mile High, and the presentation of the OTS Lifetime Achievement Award.

Tony Naka is this year's recipient. Campbell said that Naka has always been a good supporter of the OTS and the community in general, and Naka has also had a lengthy and successful career in the patch.

The curling will resume in the morning of the 29th, and there will be draws throughout the day. And there will be several draws on the 30th, culminating with the championship finals in each event starting at 4 p.m.

Breakfast will be served to the competitors in the morning of the 28th and 29th.

For the second straight year, women will be competing in the bonspiel, and Campbell said that several women entered this year's event.
