Badger Women's Bonspiel

The Rice Lake Curling Club was hostess of the 2011 Badger Women's Bonspiel, January 28 through 30th. The tournament held annually, determines the Wisconsin Ladies Curling Championship. This was the first time this event was held at our club. Sixteen teams representing curling clubs throughout the state participated in this competition. We received wonderful comments throughout the week-end such as: "Thank you all so much! First time to Rice Lake and I am so impressed by the hospitality and friendliness of your club. Great ice - Great food! Love the cranberry juice and vodka. Great job hosting a wonderful Badger!. Thanks to all of the volunteers. You were wonderful hosts. The ice was great. It was nice having a locker available! I loved your ice guys!. I loved your kitchen helpers and all the great food!. Nicolle, Millie, Kim, and Cara made it all look easy. ( I know it wasn't) but it was a smooth event, lots of great attention paid to details, and an event I will always remember. 3.9 ice is the fastest I've been on this season!." The success of this spiel would not have been possible without your help. The donations for the raffle netted the club around $600.00. The ice rental paid to the club was $700.00 Many of you donated bars, helped decorate, were score keepers. hosted in the kitchen, did food preparation, cleared out your lockers for our guests, were ice keepers, were food and liquor shoppers, hosted the cocktail party, were bartenders, did the draw, were entertainment at the banquet, made welcome kits, and helped keep the club clean. We also had the bag piper ceremony which adds so much to this event. Your cooperation and hospitality are what makes this club a success. THANK YOU!

The 1st event winner was the Fisher Rink of Wausau. They defeated the Ricci Rink of Rice Lake in a close game.
