Team Bulleid wins Mixed Bonspiel

The 65th Annual Prince Rupert Mixed Bonspiel took place at the Prince Rupert Curling Club this past weekend.

The 65th Annual Prince Rupert Mixed Bonspiel took place at the Prince Rupert Curling Club this past weekend.

With 22 teams battling it out in three divisions, there was enough good, healthy competition to go around. The four person teams had to consist of two men and two women.

The winning rink of the ‘A’ division included Terrace’s Skip Maurice Bulleid, and teammates Lisa Bulleid, Jordan Johnson, and Natasha Johnson.

Maurice shared his thoughts on the venue and thew result.

“This is a fantastic place to come and curl, I love coming here. I’ve been coming here as much as possible for the last 20 years. I wish more people would come and enjoy it. This is the second year in a row that I have won this event,” he said.

“We were pretty dominating in the round robin. The final was pretty one sided, until I made a miss at one end and let them back in the game, but luckily I had the hammer. I drew in my last rock for the win, it felt really good. I have a great team, and it’s the first time we’ve been in a bonspiel together with these couples. They did amazing.”

The final score was 8-7 in the ‘A’ division final, but judging by the smiles from the participants and the busy bar area, results didn’t matter as much as everyone coming together, having fun, and competing.

The next event for the club will be the Marine Bonspiel, which will take place March 11 – 13.
