We had 28 teams compete in  the 2011 Annual Barbecue Bonspiel,  but it was the "Off Kilter Curlers"  from the Chicago Curling Club that grabbed top honors that weekend.   Overall, the team uniforms, team names, great curling attitude, and great curling all made it a very special weekend for our club.
