Seniors mixed curling bonspiel had full field of 24 teams

Word has definitely spread throughout the Vancouver Island curling community about the recent renovations to the Comox Valley Curling Centre.

Teams actually had to be turned down who wanted to compete in the recent Seniors Mixed Invitational Curling Bonspiel as the full compliment of 24 teams was reached very quickly. Five teams from Campbell River plus entries from Powell River, Parksville and the Comox Valley had great fun competing at the three-day event. “Everyone was very impressed with the brightness of the ‘new’ facility and the amazing ice conditions – thanks Cody and Jared,” an event spokesperson said.

“Many thanks to the bonspiel organizing committee of Terry Kirkoski, Jim Hercus, Ron Sawula and Judy Francis. The wind-up of the bonspiel included lunch, awarding of event prizes, door prizes and of course the humorous antics of our ever popular MC Ted Deadman.”
