The home side in action at Alexandra

15 Jul 2011 – A mild start to the New Zealand winter may have kept the farmers happy with a longer growing season, but it created a few headaches for organizers of the NZ Curling Association's 125th Jubilee Bonspiel.

The 7 rounds of crampit curling were followed a round of hack on Friday afternoon, and then a Jubilee dinner at Ranfurly on Friday evening.
