Locals dominate at men’s bonspiel

Langley rinks win three of four finals at weekend bonspiel

It was nearly a Langley sweep last week as the Langley Curling Club hosted a men’s bonspiel.

Thirty-six teams from across the Lower Mainland took part in the bonspiel, with local rinks winning three of the four events, while another rink was runner-up.

The A event was an all-Langley affair and was won by the Mark Gilchrist rink — for the second straight year — as they beat the Dean Geiger rink.

The B event saw the Marc Desrosiers (Langley) rink beat Coquitlam’s Pierre Gallant rink.

In the C event, Cloverdale’s Mel Steffin rink defeated Delta’s Mike Weir rink.

And in the consolation final, Langley’s Kent Bird rink beat Chilliwack’s Dale Hockley rink.
