Qualicum Beach rink off to defend its title

Facing tough competition in Kelowna is an honour for Qualicum Beach curling team

Team Feltham

The Bruce Feltham team from the Qualicum Beach Curling Club is off to Kelowna on Sunday to defend the 2015 provincial title it captured in Richmond.

The March 13-17 event is sponsored by the Pacific Coast Master’s Curling Association and the B.C. Interior Master’s Curling Association, for curlers aged 60 and over.

Teams, province-wide, will be at the event with the Feltham team representing the region of Vancouver Island from Nanaimo north. They went undefeated at the qualifying event in Nanaimo in January.

The team consists of Feltham at skip, Rob Findlay at third, Garry Nolan at second and Charles Shier at the lead position.

Last year’s victory marked the first time a team from the Parksville Qualicum Beach area won the championship, which has been in existence for more than 40 years.

“We were quite excited when we won the championship last year as the final game went an extra end and it was the first provincial championship win for all of us,” said Feltham.

“We hope to be competitive again this year and represent the area well.  However, we anticipate that competition will again be very tough as it is quite an honour to capture this provincial title.  Even though we are all 60 and over, the competitive juices still flow.”
