Congratulations to the de Ryk team, winner of the Women's Bonspiel of the Royal Montreal Curling Club finals November 12, 2019
The St. Lambert Curling Club's women's team, with Elaine de Ryk as Skip, Beth Robertson as Third, Nathalie Audet as Second and Janique Arseneau as Lead, were the winners of 125th Anniversary Women's Bonspiel at the Royal Montreal Curling Club, the RMCC, held from November 8 to 10.
They defeated three American teams then went on to win 10-2 in the A final against the Ormstown Curling Club.
These 125 years go back to 1894 when curling clubs were for men only. And so, women curlers rented the Royal Club's ice and founded the Ladies Montreal Curling Club. It was long overdue for women curlers to stake their claim and develop their skills at this great sport.
