  • So sad to hear, we've lost our lovely Vi, we loved curling with her,and she inspired all the curling crowd, to just have fun. She was a power house in the curling rink, and always surprised the crowd with her trick shots. The curling rink will be a little less joyful without her. RIP VI - Posted by: Jeanine & Gary Anderson (Friends) on: Aug 03, 2017
