The Cloverdale Curling Club wound up its annual opening Cashspiel the weekend of Sept. 16-18. This is always a popular ‘spiel on the competitive circuit because it is the earliest scheduled competitive bonspiel and many of the teams were eager to get the season going.

This year the club saw entries from: Yukon, Vancouver Island, Kelowna, Kamloops and the Lower Mainland. Also entering for the first time were two teams from Arizona. Yes, there is a curling club in Phoenix! Washington State also saw two of its Seattle teams compete. The Men’s field was rounded out by the national team champion from China –Team China. This is the same team that advanced to the final 4 at the 2015 World Championships.

After two days of round robin competition, the final four came down to Team Hudyma (Vancouver Island) and Team Gushulak (Royal City) from the Ladies. Gushulak scored the win in a decisive seven tilt.
