Dunedin Curling Club
|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.
1 Nov 2012 – Peter Becker already has his name on the Wendorf Rock Bonspiel trophy three times after wins in 1999, 2000 and 2007.
Last weekend he added 2012 to his great record, and skipped his teammates Dave Greer, John Sanders and Pat Cooney to their first Wendorf win in a tournament was, as usual, both competitive and enjoyable.
7 Nov 2011 – The NZ Women's team had a more than useful dress rehearsal for the upcoming Pacific-Asia Curling Championships when they won Dunedin's Wendorf Rock Bonspiel over the weekend of 5-6 November.
Chelsea Farley, Brydie Donald and Natalie Campbell – with John Campbell filling in at second for Thiya Jeyaranjan – beat the NZ Junior Men 6-2 in the final.
|Winners Murray Petherick, Dan Thurlow, Natalie Campbell and John Campbell|
6 Apr 2011 – Alexandra's Team Campbell comfortably won their second Dunedin Summer Spiel title during the last weekend of March.
Natalie Campbell, John Campbell, Murray Petherick and Dan Thurlow were the best all-round side, winning the curling competition and also performing well in the less-than-serious "alternate" events to finish with the lowest penalty points tally.
The seven teams enjoyed a very sociable weekend, mixing early-season curling with a range of entertaining events that tested their agility, imagination and adaptability.
