50+ bonspiel had it all

  • Nov. 20, 2017 12:30 a.m.

The Comox Valley Curling Club hosted the annual 50+ Mixed Invitational Bonspiel on the weekend, with local teams and Campbell River rinks.

The keys to any successful bonspiel are organization, food, great ice conditions, competition, fun and especially socializing. This bonspiel had it all. The ages of the curlers, which ranged from 50-plus to 90-plus, and their wide ranges of abilities made the three-day, five-game tournament a challenging event.

Participation is the main feature of the bonspiel but regardless of age or ability, everyone shows up to win. Congratulations to Ralph Larsen, Joanne MacKeen, Jana Bristol and Steve Whynot who were the A Division winners.
