    The annual holiday bonspiel


    With 32 full-time faculty, 73 graduate students, 14 staff, and adjunct and emeritus professors, postdoctoral fellows and research assistants, most with partners and many with young children, getting everyone together is understandably difficult. But we try. Over the past three years our annual holiday party, organized by Jane Dauncey, has taken place at the Royal Kingston Curling Club, now located on Days Road. 

    The event begins with a curling competition featuring over a dozen teams including The Freudian Skips, Ziggy and the Icedusters, and the Sheet Disturbers. Teams compete for the coveted Curling Trophy pictured here and the members of the winning team get their names engraved on the trophy. 

    The competition is followed by a catered dinner.  Some teenagers come along to babysit allowing parents to spend a few minutes chatting with friends. It is a great chance for people to get together and celebrate the holiday season.
