The 25th installment of the Grumpy Old Men tournament has come and gone, leaving smiles on the faces of most of the players, with the odd grimace and limp thrown into the mix.

Twenty-four teams were spread across six divisions, playing for bragging rights during the three-day tournament.

The Parksville Panters won the Bob Gold (55+) division, beating the Comox Valley Hustlers by a final of 6-0. In the Don Curry (45+) division, the Gold River Grey Hawks won in a shootout, beating the Pylons 4-3.

The Fred McEachern (45+) division saw another shootout finale, with Campbell River beating the Port McNeill Pirates 5-4.

The Nanaimo Strangers took on the Port McNeil Ice Devils in the MacIsaac & Company (45+) final, with the Strangers winning by a score of 2-1.

“It’s always a good time,” Jim Ethier said. “The guys love the tournament and keep coming back for more every year. It’s great.”
