MoPac Open and Big Sky Bonspiel March 27-29, 2015

Some 150 curlers made the trek to Missoula, Montana during the last weekend of March to participate in the first ever MoPac Open and Big Sky Bonspiels.

The events kicked off on Friday afternoon with a first round of games followed a ceremonial welcome accompanied by bagpipers from Missoula’s Celtic Dragon pipers.

Over the next three days we would host more than 120 games as each team played at least four games. Several teams slogged through 7 a.m. draws and we all enjoyed a boisterous banquet with heated Lethbridge versus Butte bidding wars at the auction with proceeds going to the growing youth curling program in Missoula.

By late Sunday we were ready crown victors:
