This weekend is a big bonspieling weekend for Curl Troy members. 2 Teams are headed to Leamingon, Ontario, for the Sun Parlour Curling Club's annual Glow Spiel on Saturday. They're looking forward to hog roasts and an uneventful pass across the boarder. The other team is headed to Bowling Green, OH to spiel on their new dedicated ice in the St. Patrick's Day spiel. It's Mel's first chance to play on dedicated ice.
