There was plenty of action, as well as laughs, smiles and unique hats, at the Parksville Curling Club this past weekend for the Women’s 55+ bonspiel.

With 16 teams from across Vancouver Island and as far away as Alberta taking to the ice, the action kicked off November 13 and ran through to the awards on Sunday afternoon.

Winners of the ‘A’ event were the Irene Creally rink from Qualicum Beach, with Creally (skip), Lena West (third), Sandra Braithwaite (second) and Lori Diack (lead) beating out fellow Qualicum Beach team led by Lynn Noble.

In the ‘B’ event, the Jeffries rink from Port Alberni beat out the Denesyk rink from Parksville.

The ‘C’ event saw the Phillips rink out of Nanaimo beat the Maitland rink from Qualicum Beach and in the ‘D’ event, the Obee rink from Nanaimo beat the Cheryl Noble rink from Parksville.
