Eight-ender for Princeton team

This senior’s team scored an eight-ender on the 4th end. All of the team’s eight rocks were in the “house.”

Team members l - r: Tip Anderson (third)

An awesome, rare event took place at the Princeton Curling Club on Nov. 22 during Senior’s Curling 11 a.m. game.

This senior’s team scored an eight-ender on the 4th end. All of the team’s eight rocks were in the “house.” None of the other teams rocks were in the house.

Team members l – r: Tip Anderson (third), Joann Gabriel (second), Rosemary Clarke (skip) and Joan Moore (lead).

Joann Gabriel who is very excited about this event said, “This is my first eight ender in 52 years of curling!— and Tip’s first in I’m not sure how many years!”

Celebrating and bearing witness to the awesome event were the days opponents; Ken Jones (skip), Lloyd Wilson (third), Myrt McLaren (second) and Paula Cooper (lead).

An eight-ender, also known as a “snowman,” is a perfect score within a single end of team curling.

Eight-enders are quite rare in competitive curling.  They happen about as often as a perfect game in baseball or a score of 300 (perfect game) in bowling.
