Another eight-ender at NGCC!

The John Boos team scored an Eight-Ender during the NGCC / Denn Ice Men's Invitational Bonspiel.

An eight-ender is a perfect score within a single end of curling. In an end, both teams throw eight rocks, and in an eight ender, all rocks from one team scores points. 

Eight-enders are extremely rare in competitive curling and are analogous to a perfect game in baseball or bowling or some say... a hole in one! 

Eight-enders are so rare that the Canadian Curling Association recognizes this achievement with a unique eight-ender pin and certificate. 

Congratulations to John Boos, Terry Litchy, Mitch Barsalou and Wayne Pitt!

2017 John Boos Team 8 Ender

Better than a hole in one!

 8-Ender enjoyed by NGCC Men's Team

NGCC teams continue to do well at local bonspiels.  In March 2017, one of our men's team lost in the A side final at a bonspiel in Pembroke but their loss in the final was offset by the fact that they achieved the holy grail of curling in one of their games during the spiel - an 8 ender.

8 enders are statistically harder to achieve than a hole-in-one. Well done guys!!
