Two local teams travelled to Edmonton to compete in the Western Provinces Floor Curling tournament last month. They set out to compete against teams from B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

Ten teams competed in the 50-plus division, including Agassiz's team, consisting of Cor Dirven, skip; Leslie Zawada, third, Ruth Newitt, second, and Norm Zawada, lead. They won the group with a five and one win/loss record.

In the 70-plus division, the team consisting of Dick Hopkins, skip; Shirley Hopkins, third; Peter Burr, second and Mary Burr, lead, tied for first place with a 4-1-1 win/loss record, but had to settle for second place based on the tiebreaker system used.

The competition was of high caliber, and a lot of games came down to the last rock.

Next year’s competition will be in a location in Saskatchewan, as it is rotated between the four provinces.
