Curling in July at Miniota

28th Miniota Shirtsleeve Classic weekend very successful

Miniota’s 28th Shirtsleeve Classic was held over the July 19 - July 21 weekend with lots of activities for everyone. Drawmaster Bob Gardham along with Duncan Lelond and crew created the unique July curling ice experience.

On the scenic nine-hole golf course, some 64 golfers teed off. The car rally had people touring around the Miniota rural area, and a 5 km Fun Colour Run brought about 100 participants to the streets of Miniota.
