Seven teams came together at the Forest Grove Curling Rink on Feb. 25, at 8:45 a.m., to start off the third annual Funspiel, organised by the Forest Grove ’94 Lions.

The Two Sisters were once again catering this event, offering delicious breakfast sandwiches, hot dogs, deluxe burgers and fries as well as pop and coffee. Mid-afternoon, the winning team was declared to be Vic and Sue Meyer, and Rick and Jaden Knight, before the tables were set up for their customary dinner to round up a day filled with fun and laughter.
