As the final stone came to rest at the Quesnel Curling Club’s St. Patrick’s Day bonspiel, the club’s activities on the ice for the season ended as well.
Club manager Dave Plant turned off the compressors, and began the process of taking out the ice a day after the championship round on Sunday, March 20.
The final bonspiel of the year saw players embrace the St. Patrick’s theme in various ways, including Plant’s team decking themselves out in green kilts.
In the “A” Event final, team Blackmore won the championship, including skip Josh Blackmore, third Ray Blackmore, second Kyle Blackmore and lead Nolan Blackmore.
“B” Event winners include skip Carly Backer, third Lynn Mamic, second Jamie Waffle and lead Marry Anne Morrison.
The “C” Event was won by skip Steve Bernard, third Jim Sommerville, second Earl Spielman and lead Lorne Lilly.
The Quesnel Curling Centre posted on Facebook thanking sponsors, employees and volunteers for making the season possible.
“We could not do it without you,” the club writes.
“From the league sponsors with the wall and in ice advertising to the bonspiel and special events sponsors, we send a heartfelt thank you and encourage all our members to remember who made curling in Quesnel possible.”
Due to COVID-19 rules, most of the bonspiels for the season had to be played late into the season.
“We are there for (the players) and are glad that you turned out,” the club writes.
“We hope that you will continue to enjoy curling and the Quesnel Curling Centre in the upcoming seasons.”
The club will host the BC Archery Indoor Provincials April 15 – 17.
