Good competition, fun at Comox Valley 50+ invitational bonspiel

The Comox Valley 50+ Curling League recently hosted a three- day invitational bonspiel with teams from both the Comox Valley and Campbell River competing.

Thanks to the many upgrades and improvements the Comox Valley curling rink has undergone, the quality of the ice now makes it a very desirable location for bonspiels.

The games throughout the bonspiel were both exciting to play and also to watch with many close scores, some not so close and even a seven-ender scored by Grant Compton’s team – Joan Compton, Michael Spender and Bill Tower. Grant, who is 91 years young, said he had never won a seven-ender in all his years of curling.

Competition is very important but the fun aspect is also stressed in the 50+ curling circuit and many thanks to Ron Sawula for organizing the event.

The three-day invitational included five games of curling, breakfast the first day and a wind-up lunch on the last day with bonspiel prizes and door prizes.

The A division winners were Richard Lewis, Derryl Wright, Sharon Walker and, Reg Treffle of the Comox Valley Curling Club.

The  event winners were Wayne Clark, Doug McGregor, Darlene Kelly and Brian Kelly; C event Vern Reimer, Terry Kirkoski, Judy Francis and Lyle Ramsey; D event Ron Pearce, Jim Mason, Eva Moore and Maureen Mason; and the E event Dan Carroll, Mark Levesque, Warren Atamanik and Colleen Atamanik.
