2017 Curling FUNspiel & Chili Cook-Off


The NNCA hosted another successful Curling FUNspiel and Chili Cook-off on Friday, March 3, 2017. Everything fell into place at the last minute with five entries in our hotly contested Chili Cook-off and sixteen teams participating in an afternoon of fun.

We would like to thank our teams, volunteers, and sponsors for making this event a success. 


The Winners

Congratulations to ThyssenKrupp Elevator's team for winning the FUNspiel and to Krista Simmons, with the Break-Away Drilling & Blasting Ltd.women's team, for winning the Chili Cook-off.

Congratulations to Blair Wyshynski (ThyssenKrupp) who won the Closest-to-the-button competition. (We're waiting to hear if he also won the lottery as Friday was his lucky day!)

Pictures of all of the teams, the chili cook-off, and the curling can be found on our Facebook.
