Bonspiel (funspeil) 2015

Great turnout to our 2015 Bonspiell. Thanks to all the teams and friends for helping out!

We had 8 teams take the ice in Stroud and it was The Rockers (Paul, Dave, Todd and Sierra) that took home the trophy. Congrats! Special mention goes to past champs GIS Rocks for second place.
