History has been made on a local pond.
To celebrate the club’s milestone anniversary of turning 100 years old, Lennoxville Curling Club members Sandrine and Christophe Comyn hosted an event on their property many won’t soon forget.
On Feb. 25, dozens of members of the local club bundled up, grabbed their sticks and headed to the pond. But it wasn’t for hockey.
As part of Curling Day in Canada, members of the local club headed to the Comyn pond to play friendly curling matches outdoors. According to many club members, it’s the first time in the 100-year history of the club the game has been taken outdoors.
“It just happened to land on Curling Day in Canada,” said Sandrine. “We were going to do this a few weeks earlier but with the weather forecast, we changed the date. It turned out excellent and so many people had fun.”
Despite the chilly -17 degree weather, crowds as large as approximately 50 people braved the winter cold to be a part of the celebration.
