The Munro team won the Blueberry event.

Young curlers have fun at JamCan Spiel

Munro team wins Blueberry Event; Sprout team tops Strawberry Event

The second annual JamCan Spiel held at the Comox Valley Curling Centre last weekend was a huge success.

“Exciting”, “Awesome” and “Best winter sport ever”! are some of the words used by the kids to describe their experience.

Curlers ages six to 12 participated in four games using homemade “rocks.” Lunch was served both days with extra special treats thrown in. A huge thanks to all the volunteers who came out and made this happen.

At the end of the day two teams rose to the top.

 

The Strawberry Event was won by the Sprout Team consisting of Alicia Sprout, Jayden Moore, Matthew Gilroy and Sarah Gilroy.

The Blueberry Event was won by the Munro Team comprising  Will Munro, Matt Munro, Akira Munro and James Munro. This is a repeat performance for the Munro team.

 

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