The Comox Valley 50+ Mixed Curling League team of Cy Gouthro, Jim Mason, Terry Kirkoski and Frank Craig travelled to Qualicum on the weekend to compete in the “Master Men’s Out of Hat” Bonspiel.

There was no stopping them as they won five straight games and captured first place in the “A” Division. The 50+ Mixed Curling League will be on the ice once again this week for their final Fun Spiel/dinner and dance before taking a Christmas break. The league starts up again on Jan. 4, playing twice a week during the day with an emphasis on meeting new people, getting exercise and other activities which include summer golf tournaments and picnics.

“We certainly have no problem competing against our neighbours on the Island either and it’s great when they bring home the gold. New members are always welcome – there’s a team waiting for you,” a league spokesperson said.
