Curlers in Quesnel gathered at the curling rink to break the ice last weekend.
Eighteen local teams mixed it up in the event. The bonspiel broke the ice particularly well, using a draft-like system in which participants signed up individually and were then put into teams.
Dave Plant, the manager of the curling club, said it’s becoming a popular way to run the bon spiels because it allows people to curl with new people and frees them from convincing a whole team to come out and play.
The Regency Chrysler ‘B’ event came down to the Dave Warwyk Rink against the Lorna Schley rink.
The game remain close up till the sixth end, when Lorna score two to make the score 5-2. Only able to score a single, Warwyk was down two coming home and allowing the Lorna Rink to take the game 6-3. Lorna Schley skipped the victories, backed up by Wes Arnot, third, Pattsy Woollends, second and Pat Crerar, lead.
The Fowler Moving sponsored ‘B’ event came down to the Barb Arnot rink against the Trudy Bentley Rink.
Arnot Stole four ends in a row to make the score 7-2. Trudy was never able to get on track, losing to the Arnot rink 9-2. Skip Barb Arnot was backed up by Lynda sales, third, Gail Redden, second and Natalie Marleau, lead.
The Marg and Ed sponsored ‘C’ event came down to Dana Johansen rink and the Grant Wawryk rink.
Johansen scored two in the seventh to go up 7-4, but Grant came back and scored three in the eighth to force an extra end. Dana scored one in the extra for the win. Johnasen was backed by Terri Matula, third, Ed Napier, second and Jane Austin, lead.
