The Marpole CC and Driftwood Brewery Sportsman Bonspiel 2015 Winners

A gigantic thank you to everyone who participated in the Marpole Curling Club and Driftwood Brewery Sportsman Bonspiel. It was our pleasure to host teams from all over the lower mainland as well as Seattle. It was an extra bonus to host the reunion of the Paul Gowsell Team Junior World Champions 1976 and 1978. Travelling from Calgary, Victoria and Australia, the team of Kelly Stearne, Glen Jackson ans Neil Houston and of course Paul Gowsell joined forces on the ice and in the lounge! We thank them for choosing Marpole to host their reunion. Here is a link to Elaine Dagg-Jackson’s instagram with a wonderful comparison photo from 1976 and 2015!

Thank you to our sponsors Driftwood Brewery, Waller Construction and Hardline Brooms. Your contributions went along way to help in the success of this bonspiel. A big thank you to all the volunteer members of the committee and staff who worked very hard to make this a fun and eventful Bonspiel!

We have one spot left for a team on the fun and fantastic mini league starting Thursday Oct 29th with alternating draw times of 6:50pm and 9:00pm. The cost is $85.00 per person. This is a great opportunity for a team to get a feel of league life! The first week we provide basic instruction so it is an awesome opportunity for beginners too! It’s an open league so any mix of gender works.
