The Annual SCBA vs SCWBA game was played this month at Croydon BC.  The Presidents teams play against each other and this game is always a lot of fun and usualy starts off the season.  Lots of playful heckling across the rinks is usually heard.  This year however mainly we just heard laughter and the wind as it blew through the tree leaves.  Brrrrr it was a cold day.
