Kitimat rinks take B C

Kitimat grabbed two of the four events in this year’s Aluminum City Bonspiel, but could not stop Terrace from claiming the top prize.

Kitimat grabbed two of the four events in this year’s Aluminum City Bonspiel, but could not stop Terrace from claiming the top prize.

A total of 17 rinks battled it out at the Hirsch Creek Golf and Winter Club, with A Event going to the Warren Copeland rink of Terrace who beat out fellow Terracite John Kennedy.

The B Event stayed at home as the Tracey Hittel foursome (Darryl Craft, Dave Venman, Andrew Weisener – photo below) defeated fellow Kitimatian Ryan MacDonald rink.

The C Event was another Kitimat triumph, Ian Baker’s quartet (Tony Santos, Ryan Pigeon and Chad Stevenson) taking the win from Maurice Bullied of Terrace.

Terrace also picked up its second event when Dino Diana’s team defeated the Parker team from Smithers in D.

On a historic note, the third for the Ryan MacDonald rink was Murray MacDonald who continued his unmatched record of having played in all 43 Aluminum City spiels.

He is also one of only three remaining active curlers here from the days of the original two-sheet rink on the present day Rod and Gun site.

We would like to thank all the local businesses who sponsored events or donated to ensure the success of this event.
