Timmins New Horizons sent seven teams to this year's event. The popularity of this event is very evident with the maximum number of teams participating. Allen Carroll, Roy Carroll's son who presented the winning trophy stated that it had been twenty years since his father's death and that he would be very proud to see the number of curlers participating in the bonspiel being held in his honour.
A good time was had by all the winning teams and most of the losing ones as well. Larry Lachance's team from Iroquois Falls placed first and Wayne Jaszan's team from Timmins came second.
 

March 6 & 7, 2012 Event
 
Timmins New Horizons sent six teams to this year's event. A big surprise was Bill Pye's team who entered at the last minute and posted an excellent score on the first two draws and held on on the next two to post second place overall in the two day bonspiel. 
Basil Deforge's team from Iroquois Falls who had placed fifth at last year's event won all of his games in a convincing manner with steady play and good knowledge of the ice defeating Bill Vane's team in the final game. Bill's team finished third overall.
A special Thank You to organizer Elmer Fisher and his group from Iroquois Falls who hosted an excellent event with a great meal, good hospitality and friendly competition. A fun time was had by all.
