‘Curling wars’ veteran undefeated

Local curlers vying for top spots in 100 Mile Curling Club standings

A group of wily vets and a team of wizards reign supreme atop the 100 Mile House Curling Club standings.

The most recent results are in for local Men’s, Women’s, Mixed and Business Leagues.

Ed Ney continues to lead the Men’s League with a perfect record.

“Will anyone slow down this wily curling veteran of the curling wars?” asks club spokesperson Wayne Venos. “Maria Hamilton’s girls from Bridge Lake continue their wizardly ways over the rest of the rinks on Thursday night ladies play. They are enjoying their status so much they have started wearing wizard hats to the curling rink on game nights.”

A ladies windup Christmas party is slated after curling on Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. All ladies from Monday, Tuesday and Thursday night leagues are invited to bring their favourite appetizers and enjoy a little Christmas cheer.

Curler Sherr O’Brien was recently injured and will be out for the remainder of the season, explains Venos.

“Being such an active member of our curling club, she will be missed by everyone.”

The Business League wraps up before Christmas and starts anew in the beginning of January.

New teams or individuals are invited to sign up by calling club president Joanne Doddridge at 259-395-2296. The cost is $90 per player with teams of four.

Players require clean rubber-soled shoes, while sliders and brushes are provided free of charge.
