Sticks and stones on the ice this week

By Matthew McCully

This week the Lennoxville Curling Club is hosting the Sticks and Stones Bonspiel, running until Friday, Nov. 22. What’s unique about this tournament is that all of the curlers are required to throw their stones using a delivery stick instead of by hand. The stick is commonly used by senior curling enthusiasts or people with limited mobility who still want to get out and enjoy the sport. While most participants in the tournament are comfortable with the delivery stick, players less familiar could be at a slight disadvantage as they get used to a different way of delivering stones.
