2015 Summerspiel winners
Winners L-R: Simon Neilson, Dave Greer, Nelson Ede, Peter Becker

23 Feb 2015 – The summer bonspiel made a comeback at Dunedin Ice Stadium over the weekend.

The bonspiel is a relaxed event designed to bring curlers of all types and ages together and this year's event was described by organiser Dan Mustapic as a great success.

"It was good to see hack, stick and crampet curlers competing together, from Auckland, Wellington and the south" said Mustapic, a member of the New Zealand team that attended the 2006 Winter Olympics.

The Summer Spiel's "Golden Jandal" trophy was won out by Team Peter Becker, from Maniototo. Becker's experienced line-up scored the most wins in an intense programme of seven short games, and did sufficiently well in a series of individual curling tests to head off Team Taylor from Wellington/Auckland and Team Grieve from Auckland.

Dunedin Curling Club club captain Simon Noble said it was pleasing that nearly half of the curlers were women and a range of age groups were present, from the national secondary school champs to the national Senior Women's team, who are off to the world championships in Sochi, Russia in April.

Dunedin's next tournament is the Open Doubles, scheduled for 20-22 March.
