The annual curling bonspiel is taking on a new name this year.

The bonspiel, which will run March 17-19 at the North Shore Recreation Centre, will be called the John K. MacDonald Memorial Curling Bonspiel after its creator a dozen years ago.

Anyone wishing to compete in the bonspiel can register in three categories – all male, all female, or mixed teams.

Along with the curling, the three-day event will also feature a silent auction, prize draw table and 50/50 draw.

This year, a donation will be made to the John K. MacDonald sports park to help maintain the soccer and ball fields.

Teams wishing to register can contact Gail Matheson at 902-657-3156 or George Semple at 902-657-2693.
