Quesnel team wins Masters Open curling playdowns

Team Kostiuk won the playdowns in Ashcroft in late January

By Janet Quesnel

On Jan. 26–27, the Ashcroft Curling Club hosted the Masters Open playdowns. Only two teams—Team Kofski from Kelowna and Team Kostiuk from Quesnel/Dawson Creek—were involved, but the competition was fierce.

Team Kostiuk (skip Cliff Kostiuk, third David Hay, second Jerome Deis, and lead Mike Mackman) was the winner. An interesting aside was the suggestion from the icemen of new competition brooms. Everyone had a great laugh, and the pictures of the team with the brooms and the official doing a broom check was a nice ice-breaker.

Thank you to everyone who helped with the weekend or came out to watch. The next playdown is the U18 (Feb. 22–24). Come on down: the curling will be exciting, and you can see the future of competition curling in B.C.
