The Campbell River curling club is hosting its biggest men’s bonspiel in 20 years.

There will be 36 teams competing in the Ralph Boyd Men’s Open with play beginning on Thursday at 4 p.m. and continuing for the next four days with the event finals slated to begin on Sunday at 3:15 p.m. Teams will be travelling here from all parts of the Island, including one from the Lower Mainland.

Jim Riley, last year’s champion, returns to defend his title. This year’s theme is “Gilligan’s Island” and the best dressed team relating to the theme will win their entry fee of $280.

There will be more than $20,000 in prizes handed out. As well, some lucky curler who wins the skills competition will take home a car, valued at $7,000, from Tyee Chev.

The concession and bar will be open all weekend while the curling is going on. There is excellent viewing both upstairs and downstairs, so come on out and take in some great curling and have a bite to eat.
