THE GOODWIN TEAM from left to right is: skip Deb Goodwin

Goodwin rink goes 3-3 at Dominion championships

Comox Valley curlers also top fundraising team at event in Scarborough

The Goodwin rink of skip Deb Goodwin, third Lonnie Schopp, second Kim Jonsson and lead Lori Ross have just returned from the Dominion Canadian Curling Club Championships (Nov. 19-24 in Scarborough, Ont.) where the Comox Valley quartet represented B.C. for the second year in a row.

The Dominion Championship is a world class event for club curlers from all across Canada and the Territories. Club champions compete first to win their

zone and then advance to the provincial championships. The provincial champions are then treated to a very special week of curling and events. This curling event is top notch, from the opening ceremonies, to the venue (this year, Scarboro Golf and Country Club), to the team vans complete with your very own driver with provincial flags flying.

“The opportunity to wear your provincial flag and name on your back is an amazing experience and meeting other provincial champions from all across Canada is a very special part of the event and has created some friendships and memories that we will treasure forever,” said a team spokesperson.

The Goodwin team finished with a 3-3 record, with wins over New

Brunswick, NWT and Yukon and losses to Manitoba, Alberta and Northern Ontario which all were very close, going to eight ends and one an extra end.

Thanks to the amazing efforts of the Comox Valley Curling Club, friends and families, the Goodwin team also won the top team fundraising contest with over $8,000 going toward Spinal Cord Injury, Canada (the event charity). The total amount raised at the 2012 Dominion was $88,000, well exceeding the goal of $30,000. The team is very grateful to everyone for all their support in this worthy cause.

The Comox Valley Curling Club is looking forward to hosting the North Island Playdowns at the end of this season in March and this is the precursor to the provincial Dominion Curling Club Challenge. This zone playdown includes men’s and women’s teams that played together regularly, in a sanctioned club league in the most recent season, excluding

major/super leagues, to represent the club as the men’s and women’s club champions.

Teams from north of Nanaimo and including Powell River will compete to win and advance to the  Dominion Curling Club Challenge held each year at the Richmond Curling Club. There couldn’t be a better event to showcase the curling skills of league men and women teams and the experience, from all accounts, is immeasurable.
