Al Green throws a rock during the Fisherman’s Sturling Bonspiel on Saturday.

Fisherman’s Bonspiel a huge success

Paul Eisenhauer and Kathy Dann went home as champions of the ‘A’ division

The Prince Rupert Curling Club put on their annual Fisherman’s Sturling Bonspiel event this past weekend and Paul Eisenhauer and Kathy Dann went home as champions of the ‘A’ division.

Cody Green, club member and tourney participant, lost in the ‘B’ final with Alana Rice to Jessica Bernhardt and Cherie Malthus.

“It is two-on-two curling, which is called Sturling … In Sturling you only throw six rocks, but only one person throws per end … A game lasts for six ends. Sturling takes about an hour per game, there is no sweeping between the hog lines, you are only allowed to sweep the rock once it gets into the other zone. It’s a great time,” said Cody.

Al Green and Michelle Gavin won the ‘C’ event, while Shawna Holkestad and Danny Dawson won the ‘D’ final.

“It’s been fantastic, lots of new curlers, which is really good, helping the club out a lot … The turnout was amazing. We had 26 teams,” Cody said.

The event started at 8 a.m., and concluded at 10:30 p.m. Joyous chirping, and a laid-back atmosphere with frosty beverages highlighted the day.The newbies and experienced alike had a great time at the event.
