Abbotsford’s Bruce Lonsberry rink grabbed top spot at the Chilliwack Curling Club’s annual master’s bonspiel.
The event was held last weekend, drawing a field of 24 rinks, 12 from out of town.
The Lonsberry rink accumulated the most points through five seeded matches, edging Haney’s Ken King rink and Abbotsford’s Gary Snowden rink.
The out-of-towners had the luxury of stacking their teams, while the Chilliwack entries stuck with their rosters from regular league play.
The CCC had two curlers playing the ‘visitor’ role last weekend, travelling to Kamloops for the Kamloops Crown of Curling bonspiel.
Stephanie Prinse, a Chilliwack secondary school grad who finished a stellar junior career last season, joined the Jody Maskiewich rink representing the Royal City Curling Club.
Her team went 1-3, missing out on the money.
Former two time provincial men’s champion Dean Joanisse, who is playing in the CCC’s Sabre Industrial Supplies Competitive League this season, skipped his crew to a second place finish and $6,000.
Joanisse called the game and threw third for the team, which included young curlers Michael Johnson, John Cullen and Paul Cseke.
