Collingwood invaded

The Innisdale Invaders senior boys volleyball team added four more wins to their season's perfect record on the weekend.

In hopes of smashing the current Guinness World Record of 73 hours, a group of local curlers played around the clock at the Coldwater District Curling Club in an effort to set a new mark, which they accomplished over the weekend.
