“Sydenham’s Crazy Legs Bonspiel: A Weekend of Curling Excitement and Community Spirit!”

The Crazy Legs Special was a truly memorable event, filled with not only intense curling matches but also a variety of activities and entertainment for participants and spectators alike. Darts, trivia, horse races and live music were enjoyed by all.

Highlights of the Saturday evening included a bagpipe tribute and heartfelt stories of our club’s beloved Ken “Crazy Legs” Murphy, the creator of the Crazy Legs Special Bonspiel, who passed away in November 2023. A special congratulations to Shala Sayer and Sindy McNeil who were inducted into the Crazy Legs Hall of Fame, a testament to their dedication and contributions to the sport and the community. Also, the life of the party was awarded to team Murphy.

Congratulations to Team Glover (Brian Glover, Dennis Alexander, Phil Alexander and Ryan Laidlaw) on their well deserved victory of the 44th Annual Crazy Legs Special. This is Team Glover’s second year in a row finishing on top! With 30 teams competing, the competition was fierce, making their victory all the more commendable.

Thank you to the organizing committee who made the 44th Annual Crazy Legs Special a resounding success, bringing together curlers and supporters for a weekend of fun, camaraderie, and of course, great curling. In the spirit of Ken “Crazy Legs” Murphy, not only did this bonspiel raise money for our club, but it also raised money for Jump Start which ensures children from families in financial need have equal opportunity to play sport and stay physically active. Whoopie!
