Campbell River Curling Club hosted the Senior Men’s playdowns last weekend.

The double knockout draw resulted in two teams qualifying for the Provincials slated for February 18-22 in the Comox Valley.

The first team to advance, in winning the A-side, was the Wes Craig Rink from Victoria.

The second team to advance was the local favourite Dean Thulin rink, playing with third Lyle Boyce, second Brad Sullivan and lead Tom Green.

The Thulin rink, having lost one game against the Jay Tucson rink, had a second chance against them in the B final on Sunday which was a fantastic game for Dean Thulin. The Thulin rink played incredibly, forcing the opposition to shake hands after eight ends with a score of 7-2.

Curling club manager Susan Johnson said she is extremely proud of the Thulin rink going on to represent Campbell River in the Provincials, and thanks Ice Tech Terry Kratzmann for his Ice efforts along with organizer John LaPointe and head official Margaret Walker for their part in a very successful weekend at the Campbell River Curling Club.
