The Colton is our in house Women’s Club Championship that is held in honor of Charlotte Colton, Ruth Kerr, Dorothy Szymaszek and in memory of Ursula Hilborn. Charlotte and Dorothy were on hand to award their pins (and Dorothy helped us out with the Kerr and Hilborn as well!) to the winners at this year’s event. The prestigious Colton pin features an image of the Queen of Hearts playing card with a winking Queen to represent the fact that the ladies are all queens in this bonspiel but they don’t take themselves too seriously!

Thanks to all who participated and helped make this event a success!!
