Qualicum Beach ladies rock Parksville bonspiel

Maitland rink takes trophy in Ladies 55+ event that draws 20 teams

The women of Qualicum & District Curling Club enjoyed a strong showing in last week’s Ladies 55+ bonspiel, sweeping the top two spots in the A final and adding a win in the B event at Parksville Curling Club.

Judy Maitland guided her rink of third Ellen Coates, second Hilary Avis and lead Libby Whitfield to the A final win and bonspiel trophy over fellow Qualicum Beach curler Lynne Noble (with Penny Shantz, Hazel Watson and Kathy Branch).

Irene Creally’s QDCC rink of Marilyn Roney, Wendy Anderson and Sandra Braithwaite claimed the B final over Gloria Sandberg and her Comox Valley team.

The bonspiel drew a full field of 20 teams from across Vancouver Island and Vancouver, and left a waiting list of additional rinks.

“We’ve got more geographical representation than ever before,” bonspiel organizer Christine Davis said. “Actually, there are only three teams from our club. Some of the others didn’t get in before the cut-off.”

Competition was divided into five events. The C event was won by Amber Dufour of Comox Valley; the D event went to Sheila Percival of Duncan; and the E event was claimed by Dee Horie of Comox Valley.

Parksville’s Cheryl Noble took third in the A event, with Nancy Douglas, Vivian Williams and June Cousineau.

The Sheila Dale rink placed fourth in the C event, with Dale joined by Wendy Connor, Marilyn Causton and Diana Creagh. Mary Ann Brothers teamed with Anne Ward, Cathy Eby and Donelda Klein to give Parksville another fourth-place showing, in the D event.

The bonspiel was sponsored by McGorman Maclean Professional Chartered Accountants, Natural Evolution Hair Studio, Natural Synergy Day Spa, Qualicum Beach Memorial Golf Course, Morningstar Golf Course, Parksville Music Center, The Pie Factory and Second Chance Thrift Store.
