Kids have a blast at JamCan Spiel

Young curlers enjoyed inaugural event at Comox Valley Curling Centre

The inaugural JamCan Spiel held at the Comox Valley Curling Centre this past weekend was a huge success, organizers say.

“Epic fun!” “Exciting!” “Awesome” and “Spectacular” are some of the words used by the kids to describe their experience.

Ranging in age from six to 12, the kids all participated in four games using homemade “rocks.” Lunch was served both days with some extra special treats thrown in. Many thanks to Becky and Mark for the preparation of the lunches.

This was not possible without the help from all the volunteers who came out and made this happen. Supervising 64 children was a feat in itself.

At the end of the day four teams rose to the top. The Strawberry Event was won by the Taylor Team consisting of Paige Taylor, Ayden Taylor, Helena Bravo and Belle Gill.

The Blueberry Event was won by the MunroTeam comprising  Will Munro, Matt Munro, Akira Munro and James Munro.

Taking the Plum Event was the Holland Team. It included Henry Holland, Sarah McQueen, Leeland McDonald and Isabella McDonald.

The final, the Marmalade Event, was won by the Costantino foursome consisting of Nicolas Costantino, Koen Sperber, JJ MacNeil and Carter Shercliffe.

“For most of the kids this was a new experience. Much fun was had by all,” an event spokesperson said.
