This past weekend the Castlegar Curling Club hosted the Masters’ Verzuh/Clay Memorial Bonspiel.  The event was so named to honour two well respected Castlegar curlers. Ralph Clay was a long time curler as well as ice maker and manager of the rink. At the age of 92, Mike Verzuh was the oldest active curler in B.C.

Sixteen teams from Castlegar, Trail, Rossland, Beaver Valley and Nelson competed in four divisions. Cash prizes were awarded to the winners.

The format for the prizes was $20 for each game won, $80 for a division win, and $40 for a second place division finish. The winner of the “A” division was the Venturini rink from Beaver Valley. The “B” division winner was the Secco rink from Trail. Winning the “C” division was the Coleman rink from Trail. The “D” division was won by the Stephenson rink from Beaver Valley. The honour of the team with the most total points went to the Primo Secco rink from Trail with four wins and one tie.
