CONTRIBUTION · 8th February 2012
Once again (12th annual) the curling community came out to contest the top position for the Industrial Challenge Bonspiel.
Though fewer in number this year the battles were no less intense with some being won by a hair and others being handed a total shellacking. Representatives came out to fight in six end games through Saturday and Sunday in round robin games with the final games being played Sunday afternoon (everyone off the ice in time for the big game).
Teams representing Rio Tinto Alcan, Methanex, Teachers, Gyros, Lapointe Engineering, District of Kitimat and the Hirsch Creek Golf and Winter Club came together for this the 12th annual event.
At the end of the day, though not undefeated, the Hirsch Creek Golf and Winter Club #2, represented by Diana Griffiths (lead), Stephen King (second), Iain Illing (third) and Sean Greenslade (skip) were victorious. (see photo - also pictured was the team's #1 fan and supporter, Brook Greenslade). All participants had a great time and played hard, win or lose.
It is hoped that next years event will see more teams from local industry, business and community groups. Great show all !
