The 2014 Thrifty Foods Parksville Men’s Open Bonspiel saw plenty of action over the weekend

The 2014 Thrifty Foods Parksville Men’s Bonspiel took place over the weekend at the Parksville Curling Club with three Parksville rinks taking home some hardware.

It was a three-day tournament that saw 26 teams from Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland converge on the rink in Parksville, where the action was non-stop from start to finish.

Four groups competed for bragging rights to see who would be crowned champion and in the end it was the defending champs from Chilliwack, the Hockley rink, that took home the Bob Hawkes Memorial Trophy for the second year in a row.

The group B event was a local battle between Parksville’s Willis and Deveraux rinks, with the Willis rink coming out on top.

Group C saw the former champion Schmidt rink, from Comox, coming up just short against the Thomas rink from Parksville.

The group D final had the Sakai rink edging out the Graham rink from Qualicum Beach.
