From the desk of Elly Moore a reminder Qualicum and District Curling Club will be hosting its annual Ladies Swingin’ 60s Bonspiel this weekend (Oct. 21-23).
In keeping with the rules of the ‘spiel, each team is allowed one player aged 55-plus, with the rest 60 and over.
First draws are at 8:10 a.m. Friday and Saturday, with last draws starting at 3 p.m. Sunday’s playoffs are at 8:45 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Sunday with closing ceremonies and award presentations to follow at around 1 p.m.
“We have teams coming from Langley, Victoria, Duncan, Nanaimo, Parksville, and Qualicum Beach,” said Elly, adding, “some team members come from other communities as a result of the friendships developed over the years of curling, to participate with friends.”
The bonspiel, says Elly, also drives the point home “that you can have fun, friendships, and friendly competition at any age.”
