Play on Saturday includes games at 9 a.m., 12:15 p.m. and 5 p.m.  According to Robinson 16 top men’s triples teams have entered this year, with eight teams in both the A and B events.

Parksville teams have dominated the competition over the past two years, and previous winning skips (Stu MacNaughton and Robinson who won the A Event titles in 2011, 2010 respectively, and Art Ferguson (B Event winner in ‘11) will all be back.

“Another important feature of the event is fund-raising on behalf of the Oceanside Hospice Society,” said Robinson, pointing out a number of excellent prizes have been donated by local businesses and members, “so be sure to get your tickets in the draw for late on Saturday.”
