There’s nothing more romantic than celebrating Valentines Day by jumping between the sheets with a team of people.

So, to that end, curlers gathered to enjoy their Valentines Day at the curling club at the annual Valentines Day Bonspiel.

Through the event, the legions of curlers were whittled down until only six teams stood head and shoulders above the rest.

In the Design Flooring A event, the Lori Freeman rink stunned the Vic Lebanc rink by scoring six in the first end. Leblanc, facing five with his last rock, ticked the guard and Freeman had an open draw for six. With their strong showing, the Leblanc rink won, 9-2 after four ends.

In the Cariboo Fire Protection B event, the Brady Waffle and Eric Eriksson were vying for every point, tied 2-2 after two ends. Waffle drew against four in the third for a single, then stole two in the fourth for a 5-2 lead and held on for an 8-5 win.

In the Quesnel River Pulp C event the Blair Hedden rink pulled away from the Brent Hodgson rink in the first half, moving up 4-2 midway through, then stole one more in the fifth. The two rinks traded points in the sixth and seventh before Hedden ran Hodgson out of rocks in the eighth for a 6-3 win.
