What a weekend!

The Comox Valley rink skipped by Candice Baker was the class of the 22-team field in the recent Port Alberni Curling Club Ladies Bonspiel, beating the Lorraine Jefferies rink in seven ends to seal the deal.

Candice led her team of Cheryl (Mrs. Mop) DeCrane at lead, Jill Cornwell at second, and Cheryle (Madonna) Cashman third to convincing wins over each team they faced to get to the finals.  In fact, none of their games went the full eight ends.

In the final against the experienced and talented Jefferies squad, a “Hail Mary” shot was perfectly executed by Madonna giving Baker three in the first end, which they followed by stealing two in the second end. Jefferies took one in the third and again took one in the fifth, but after a steal of two by Baker in the seventh, Jefferies shook hands.

It was the first event win ever for Candice which made the experience magic.

Two other Comox Valley rinks attended the event, with the Lonnie Schopp team finishing just out of the prizes and the Sandra Gallaway rink taking second in the hard-fought C event.
