Baxter Cup Stays In Espanola

CONGRATULATIONS to the ESPANOLA CURLING CLUB on retaining the BAXTER CUP for another year … this is the 95th YEAR FOR THIS LONG-TIME, FRIENDLY RIVALRY WITH LITTLE CURRENT …Even before there was a road between Little Current and Espanola, curlers from the two communities would meet for one reason: The Baxter Cup! The yearly event, one set of games in each town a week apart, sees the total score from ten games determine the winner. When it first started up in 1925, it used to be only a day long, and fans and participants alike would take the train back and forth, yup, the train did run across the Swing Bridge, to take in the friendly competition. KUDOS TO BOTH CLUBS FOR ANOTHER YEAR OF GREAT ACTION!!!!
