Curlers’ Corner: Curlers throw their weights around

It's still a fun and busy time at the Winfield Curling Club.

It’s been a busy time at the Winfield Curliing Club with all members participating in various events.

The seniors two-day invitational bonspiel finishes up today, Feb. 5, with 16 teams on hand.

The juniors took a road trip to Armstrong to compete in their second junior bonspiel this year.

Congratulations to Marcus, Katie, Laiken and Alora for winning the B event, while the other Winfield team of Jassana, Abbey and Charlene just missed a victory in the A event in a tight final game.

These kids come every week to practise and it has definitely paid off. Congratulations to these two teams—you are all winners.

Both the seniors and juniors are keen curlers and had fun competing against their own ages.

Meanwhile, league play continues at the club with play-offs fast approaching.

Monday night men’s league has the Tetlock foursome way out ahead with no losses and one tie, with the Siegmanns close behind by three points.

Tuesday night ladies still has the Picco girls ahead of the pack but they did suffer their first loss of the year.

Thursday night men’s league has the Laface team in first place with the Hughes rink close behind.

The Friday night open league has the Siegmann group in the lead with the Krogfoss, Murphy and Palmer teams in a close race behind.

Following the first draw on Fridays is drop in where anyone can come play for $5 each. It starts at around 8:15 and is open to anyone who wants to come down and give curling a try, or to polish up on their techniques. It’s fun for the whole family.

So come one come all to the Winfield Curling Club and get some exercise. We’re located at 9830 Bottom Wood Lake Road in beautiful Lake Country.

And don’t forget to watch our Team B.C. in the Scotties now through Feb. 9.

There are a lot of young athletes competing in this Canadian competition, which sees the best of the best in women’s curling.

The men’s Brier is to take place March 1 to 9 in Kamloops. There are still packages available by visiting curling.ca/tickets or calling 1-877-985-2875.

Or watch the Brier on TSN for great coverage.

That’s it for this week, so we’ll see you at the club and good curling.
