  • a multi-generational gathering of curlers took place at Hudson Legion on Saturday, February 7th, to help warm up our seemingly never-ending winter. Thirty-four curlers ranging in age from 9 to 79-plus participated in a series of curling matches held throughout the day, under the ShiverFest banner.
    Players were assigned to either Team Putnam or Team Maclean, with points accumulated in each competition contributing to the overall scores. Players pitted themselves against each other in events such as Juniors v. Seniors; Doubles; Men against Women, and regular, mixed play. Two challenging curling trivia sessions helped even out the scores prior to the event-deciding Skins games.
    It was a great way to beat winter, bringing together curlers of all ages who were cheered on by many spectators. Hot-off-the-grill pancakes were served up for breakfast, followed by toasted hot-dogs and wonderful home-made tourtières and chili for lunch all made possible by co-organizer Lisa Krebs. An amazing variety of delicious cupcakes were available to bolster players' energy levels as the day progressed.
    Shown in the photo are some members of the victorious Team Maclean, proudly displaying their ShiverFest curling rock trophy carved out of ice. Many thanks to everyone who helped make this successful event one to remember.
