Knights of Columbus curl it up in Castlegar

Members of the Knights of Columbus from across the West Kootenay descended on Castlegar for their annual curling get-together on Sunday afternoon.

The friendly tournament included about two dozen members from the service clubs in Grand Forks, Beaver Valley, Trail, Nelson and Castlegar.

“It’s an annual thing and it rotates between the five locations,” Bob Saari of the Castlegar Knights of Columbus said.

The curlers range in ability from sheer novices to some pretty sharp skips. And while it’s mainly a for-fun affair, there is a district trophy on the line. Members from the Beaver Valley club are the defending champions.
