Retiree bonspiel rocks the weekend

Last weekend the Trail Men’s Retirees hosted their 31st annual bonspiel, with ample help from the Trail Silver City Ladies.

With a total of 24 teams from Beaver Valley, Rossland, Nelson, Castlegar and Trail competing, the curling club was rocking for three days.

The highlight of the weekend happened during the last game.  The Castlegar rink with skip Alex Bojey, third Dick McLeod, second Paul Kavaloff, and lead Verna Chernoff scored an eight-ender on the Harvey Handley team from Trail.

Harvey was lying shot and fourth shot in the house. Alex on his last shot with hammer, called and made a double take-out to score eight points in one end, a feat more rare than a hole-in-one in golf.


In Section 1 the Caron rink of Trail finished first, beating the Garner rink from Nelson. In Sec. 2, the Forrest Drinnon foursome took top honours, while the Tom Hall rink was runner up. Trail’s Ernie Brown rink finished first in Sec. 3, defeating Beaver Valley’s Dave Chartres, In Section 4, the Al Venturini rink from B.V. beat out Trail’s Serge Pasquali rink.
