We attended the Royal Montreal CC Centenary Bonspiel from Thursday, January 8th to Sunday, January 11th. The out-of-towners stayed at  the Confort Suites on Crescent, a nice hotel with close proximity  to the RMCC (less than a 1 km walk or a short taxi ride) Please make plans to join us next year from January 7th to 10th. For those snowbirds, why not make a stop off in Montreal to reunite with the 2009 Tourists.
