Curlers very active leading up to holidays

Sixteen teams participated in the Mixed Bonspiel annual event at the Winfield Curling Club.

What a great weekend at the Mixed Bonspiel at the Winfield Curling Club. Sixteen teams participated in the annual event with the winners decided on Nov. 17. All three final games came down to the last rock, with the Witherspoon foursome winning over the Siegmann clan in the A event.

The B event winners were the Freeman group from Chilliwack, taking down the local Picco rink, while the C event winners were the Tetlock family over the club’s ice maker Heath.

A huge thank you for putting on this bonspiel goes to Ev and Mike Kroschinsky, Lily Zentner, Linda Comeau, Ron Masson and numerous other volunteers we all have come to depend on. These members put in countless hours to make our club events successful and it doesn’t go unappreciated so thanks to all who helped out.

Our next bonspiel takes place on Jan. 11 with Inn From the Cold’s event raising money for the homeless, with donations accepted through the club as well.

The following weekend is our annual ladies spiel, which usually has 24 – 30 teams, so if you’re interested in these or any other events, give us a call at 250-766-3318.

League play is going full tilt in the evenings during the week; senior drop-in meets every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 1 p.m. The junior program has over 30 kids aged 7 to 14 and goes every Wednesday at 4 p.m. Both the seniors and the juniors really enjoy curling, as well as the after ice “treats” upstairs in the lounge.

Hope everyone is keeping warm and safe. Good curling to all.
