#breaktheiceontheice Brampton bonspiel a success!

ONEIA’s fourth annual “Break the Ice on the Ice” drew a sold-out crowd for an afternoon of fun and networking at the Brampton Curling Club.  More than 50 novice and experienced curlers from a range of companies spent the afternoon on the ice.  Maxxam Analytics came away with the top prize as best performing team, with team Ferro/Cannington Group a close second.  Tervita, for their part, were honoured for being the most “honest” team.
