Four Triangle Curling Club teams participated in the 2012 Cherry Blossom at Potomac Curling Club during the weekend of March 22 – 25. As usual it was a blooming success as everyone had a good time and there was no end of food and drink. Team Hamilton ( Dave and Pam Hamiltin, Clifford Gray and Lea Franklin) finished at 1 -2. Team Jaun ( Chris Jaun, Patrick Rabenold, Amy Hobbie and Andrew Foulger) finished at 1 -2. Team “Southern Comfort” (Andrea and Chris Howard, Nick Witcraft and Mario Riveron) finished at 2 -2. The weekend was topped off by a Sunday appearance for Team Jackson (Murray, Kathy, Jimmy and Maureen Jackson) who finished at 4 -1 and won the Fourth event. Congratulations to the Jackson Clan (Jim and Maureen are Murray’s Uncle and Aunt). You can find all the results here . I know I am looking forward to going back to Potomac for the Inaugural Bonspiel next October. Congratulations to all the Triangle Teams for showing that Arena curlers can compete. Another interesting note was the Bonspiel Chair, Michael Fry told us that out of 32 teams attending, a whopping 41% were from the Arena Clubs!
