ESTEVAN – The Estevan Oilfield Technical Society (OTS) had to put off its planned October 22-23 bonspiel on hold due to COVID-19 difficulties.

OTS president Tony Sernick said on Oct. 6 that the bonspiel will be moved to March 25 and 26, 2022.

Sernick said government public health regulations, and uncertainty about regulations, were a major reason. That was reflected in the number of teams signed up.

“We had one team entered, so far, so that kind of made the decision, as well as, obviously, everyone’s just kind of heading back and seeing where the world goes right now.

“It’s just lack of interest.”

That means next spring will be a busy one for the OTS. The bonspiel is planned for March. Then in either April or May, the organization will hold its second trap shoot – a new event first held last spring. Then, in June, is the annual golf tournament. Sernick said that the trap shoot and golf tournament, both being held outdoors, shouldn’t be an issue with COVID-19. As for the bonspiel, it will depend on how things go.

Regarding the trap shoot, he said, “It was awesome. We were all regulated. It was kind of like tee times, if you will, with people in and out. It all worked awesome, and there were like 100 people. It filled up in like 10 seconds.”

Next year he said it will be a two-day event.
