After a very exciting double Round Robin (each team playing each team twice), Dan KELLY (skip), Alex BENOY, Mike ISENOR, Barry FOULDS win the 18/19 edition by winning 3 games and only losing 1.
Karen WAUTERS (skip), Marc HUSI, Aljaž PENGOV BITENC, Antoine LEBLAIS are vice-champions with 2 victories and 2 losses.
Dany SCHWEICH (skip), Volker BEBA, Mara KIEFER (3 games), Susi BENOY (2), Angelina KYSIL (2), Nico REULAND (1) finish 3rd with 1 victory.
It was the first Championship for 5 of the 14 players. The new players all played good stones and showed great talent.
Curling Luxembourg is definitely on the way to a great future.
The games were then all tight, even with the Champions losing against Dany Schweich’s Team Future.
The atmosphere was absolutely in a very good spirit of Curling the whole weekend through, which delighted particularly the Curling Union Committee present.

Third place went to Dan Kelly and Claude Schweitzer, another Curling Club Luxembourg team while the combined Dutch/Canadian team representing Curling Club Zoetermeer of Eelco de Boer and Scott Moon (former two-times winner of this event) placed fourth.
