2013 C.R.U.E. Winner - Team Gaines

The C.R.U.E. is a one day event for women junior skips of SCC with two 6-end games. It is a “point spiel” so the winners are determined by the combined points for both games. The sponsors of the C.R.U.E. pin are Claire Brunkhorst, Ruth Kerr, Undine Fiedler, and Evelyn Holmblad. They were the first SCC women to win the Empire State Women’s Bonspiel and have been long time supporters of women’s curling at SCC. Claire and Evelyn were on hand to present the pin to Team Gaines.
