Dear Curlers & non-curler friends,

A "Curl to End Cancer" Bonspiel will be held at Lodi Curling Club this coming weekend.

A "Curl to End Cancer" Bonspiel will be held at Lodi Curling Club this coming weekend.

We would like to host an open Bonspiel “Curl to End Cancer”. The Bonspiel will be in memory of family and/or friends that were members of our club who have died of cancer. The date of this spiel will be Nov. 20 (Fri.) & Nov. 21 (Sat.) with the spiel running 4-end games, 16 team limit, and brooms will be provided by the club, entry fee $100.00/team. A team will consist of two experienced and two new curlers, age limit a minimum of 12 years old.
We currently have six families who have generously offered to sponsor a Prize Basket in memory of their loved one. Prize Baskets are welcomed from other families who have lost a curler to cancer. If you would like to contribute to a Prize Basket already formed, please contact the captain/sponsor.

Below is a list of Family Prize Basket Sponsors:

Lori Cook Lloyd captain/sponsor: Tykie Wescott 444-4320
Joyce Dolson captain/sponsor: Theresa Dolson 592-7801
Gary Markgraf captain/sponsor: Donna Markgraf 592-4160
Bob & Laurie Reese captain/sponsor: Ron Reese 592-3547
Suzanne Weber Klopp captain/sponsor: Jane Geeslin 347-2456
Bernie Zeman captain/sponsor: Belinda Zeman 592-5716

We will sell Prize Basket raffle tickets at the Chili Feed and the Spiel, so we need to know as soon as possible what your Prize Basket will include prior to the Chili Feed. The money raised for each Prize Basket will go towards a charity of the family’s choice. Prize Baskets on display and raffle tickets for sale at the Lodi Curling Club, 704 Fair Street, Sat. Nov. 21 from 8 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., stop by to get your tickets.  Good Luck!

All proceeds from raffle ticket sales go to several CANCER organizations.
$1/ticket           $5/6 tickets

In addition it is our intent to promote & recruit new members interested in curling. Another idea is to have a ladies Wednesday night 5:00 draw, 6 or 8-end games. We hope again that members and friends will donate towards the events.
Most of us have been touched by cancer in some way and your support will be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions please contact:

Colleen Deans 849-3199
Donna Markgraf 592-4160
