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.
Team Campbell finished the weekend undefeated on the ice, winning all 6 of their pool games and then taking the final 1/2 playoff match against their Central Otago neighbours 9-4. Al Langille's northerners finished in third place on the ice, but the NZ Senior Women's side took third overall with a stellar performance in the other "disciplines".

Dunedin Summer Spiel popular
25 Jan 2011 – Just hours after Dunedin Curling's Summer Spiel was confirmed, nearly all of the available spots were taken says organiser Reece Aiken.
"I've just had a quick look, and it appears that we only have a couple of places left in the 8-team field," he reported.
The spiel will be held at the Dunedin Ice Centre in St Kilda on 25-27 March.
Last year's event proved very popular with the teams participating in both curling and other contests, both on-ice and off-ice.
