The 2015 Winterfest on Lake Bemidji recently paid out $4000 in proceeds to the Jr. Curlers for their work and involvement in the event.

The trophy, centered in the photo, lists the winners of the curling events for Winterfest. It is kept at the Tourist Information Center.
Congratulations to our Bemidji Junior men’s and women’s teams for sweeping the State Junior curling championships in Duluth last week. Both teams will compete in the 2016 Junior Nationals in Willmar, Minnesota this weekend for the opportunity to represent the United States in the World Junior Curling Championships scheduled to be held in Erzurum, Turkey in March.
Each team went undefeated in the round-robin to earn their respective championships and earn the status of Minnesota 1 at nationals.
