Nutmeg Curling Club wins Utica Curling Club’s Cobb Mixed International Bonspiel

Posted

UTICA — A team from the Nutmeg Curling Club of Connecticut defeated Utica 1 by a score of 7-4 on Sunday at the Utica Curling Club’s Cobb Mixed International Bonspiel.

The match was closely contested but turned in the sixth end when Utica 1 was forced to take only one point and Nutmeg countered with two in the seventh to take a three-point lead into the eight. Nutmeg eventually ran Utica 1 out of rocks and the team was presented with the President’s Bowl for winning the A Event of the 64th annual Cobb Bonspiel Mixed International Bonspiel which included 24 teams from six states and Canada.

The winning team was Ed Scimia, Rebecca Andrew, Allison Kenney and Jonathan Carrelli. The runner up team was Roger Rowlett, Michelle MacEnroe, Howie Feldman and M.J. Walsh.

Utica 3 won the C Event. That team was Bob Caine, Donna Caleo, Jim Revenbaugh and Jilie Chanatry. The Utica 8 team of Tim Conboy, Carrie Casab, Brian Levi and Allison Dunn was second.

Utica’s first Mixed Bonspiel was first held in 1953 which was the first year that Art Cobb Sr. and his wife Marie Cobb curled. Art Cobb Sr. has been inducted into the United States Curling Hall of Fame.

In 1997 the Mixed Bonspiel was renamed the Marie Cobb but 10 years later it was renamed again to the Cobb in order to honor the entire family.
