In the first Master’s Curling Bonspiel of 2015, the Bill Ellis rink from Chilliwack repeated their 2014 record, winning the event for the second straight time. Closely tied for second place were the Charlie Lindsay team from Abbotsford and the Jack Finnbogason foursome from Langley.

Twenty-four teams from North Vancouver, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Richmond, Tsawwassen, White Rock, Langley, Abbotsford and Chilliwack, including five from Cloverdale, competed in the three-day bonspiel, finishing on Wednesday, Jan. 7. The Cliff Hodson foursome captured honours for the best local entry.

The annual event is hosted by the Cloverdale Master’s Curling Club and entry is limited to men over 60 years of age. The teams are made up on a random draw from local members. Don England, once again, acted as chairman and commented, “Good curling, good food and good fellowship.”
