Local Firefighters Compete in Provincial Bonspiel

Curlers from across Alberta gathered in Calgary for the 2009 Provincial Firefighters Bonspiel.  Red Deer Emergency Services was represented by three teams during the event.  The Smoke Eaters, consisting of Vern Poffenroth, Marty Lang and Ron Polutnik skipped by Craig Bistritan, qualified to the championship final 8 and then were taken out of contention.  The Young Pupsbeing, Matt White, Kevin Bettsworth, Marcel Leroux and Chris Davies won one of the Slug-O events and also took the Calcutta.  The Mixed Bag had Red Deer Firefighters Len Ziegler and Todd Hector as well as Captain Burke and Kelly O’Neal.  They began by defeating the best team in the bonspiel but could not keep the winning spree going.  Calgary put on a wonderful bonspiel and all the curlers had a great time.  Their next meeting will be in Edmonton where they hope the competition is just as enjoyable.
