The Endmoor (Endiang/Byemoor combined) Floor Curling Club has been curling weekly from September through April in the Endiang Hall since 1984.
Over those 36 years, the club has sponsored many bonspiels. In 1992 they decided to hold a Leap Year bonspiel and they called it Sadie Hawkins Day Fun ’Spiel.
Since that time Endmoor has held the Fun ’Spiel each Leap Year on or close to Feb. 29. It is stipulated all skips must be a lady.
Names of all entrants are drawn from ‘the hat’ so it is “get acquainted with your team when you play”.
When it started back in 1992, ladies were asked to dress in their best Sadie Hawkins ‘capture your man’ costume so over the years there were many unique and comical costumes making for plenty of laughs but this year no special costumes were asked for.
Forty-eight people made up 12 teams on March 2 to have a fun day. Participants came from Hanna, Craigmyle, Delia, Big Valley, Stettler, Gadsby, Botha, Halkirk, Castor, Byemoor and Endiang.
