GRANDE PRAIRIE, A.B. – It was an exciting weekend of curling action in Grande Prairie for the first bonspiel of the Peace Curling Tour Championship season.
Fourteen teams competed for the top prize in both the Competitive and Challenge divisions. Representing Fort St. John, Doug Kimmie made it to the quarterfinals, where he was knocked out by Brett Vavrek’s squad.
In the end, Grande Prairie emerged victorious in the Competitive division, as Kurt Balderston’s rink beat the rink of Tyler Pfeiffer from Edmonton 9-1 in the final. On the Challenge division side, it was a much closer match between two Grande Prairie teams. Delia DeJong’s team took the win over Serge Martin’s team in a close 5-2 game. Six teams were also in competition in the Junior division on Sunday afternoon.
Curlers on the Peace Curling Tour will be making a stop in the Energetic City this weekend, as the Fort St. John Cashspiel kicks off this Friday afternoon at 3:00 at the Fort St. John Curling Club. The bonspiel will see teams on the ice until the finals on Sunday afternoon.
