With great games right out of the gates and an exciting race right through the last places, the annual Comox Valley Curling Club Ladies’ Bonspiel was once again a big success.
The 22-team competition was themed Run for the Roses: Kentucky Derby, Comox Valley-style and once again was supported by many local businesses who helped make it a fun weekend. Along with the curling, there was a great celebration on Saturday evening with costumes, raffles, crafts and many laughs.
“We’re so thankful for the support of all the players – local and from out of town – the volunteers, and most importantly, the many businesses who donate to make this a great event each and every year,” said Cheryl Sellers, bonspiel chair.
The “A” event winners were Team Schopp (Campbell River): Loni Schopp, skip; Cynthia Lu, 3rd; Marita Martel, 2nd; and Dana Dawson, Lead; beating out Team Hack (Grande Prairie/Comox Valley) in the final Sunday afternoon.
