Seniors curling bonspiel big success

The annual 50+ Seniors Curling Open Mixed Bonspiel was once again a tremendous success





The annual 50+ Seniors Curling Open Mixed Bonspiel was once again a tremendous success with teams from the Comox Valley Curling Club being challenged by both Campbell River and Parksville.

The enthusiasm and camaraderie both on and off the ice were definite indicators that this bonspiel is both challenging and a lot of fun, an event spokesperson said. The 50+ Seniors from all the clubs look forward to this annual event as it’s an opportunity to renew old friendships and develop new ones as well.

Winners of the B event from the Comox Valley club were Terry Kirkoski, Erma Derkson, Jean Mohr and Derick Higham: Lorraine Kendall, team third, is missing.

The 50+ Curling League plays twice a week during the day with an emphasis on meeting new people, getting exercise and the social aspects of not only curling but summer golf tournaments and picnics as well. “There’s always room for new players and we have a team waiting for you,” a spokesperson said.

Upcoming events are the 50+ Christmas Funspiel/dinner/dance on Dec. 14 and the locals return challenge to Campbell River in February where they hope to win the “A” division.
