In Trail Men’s Retirees Curling action Team Brett Rakuson wrapped up first place in the opening session with one game left to play.

With a win over team Wayne Wyton, team Rakuson won its eighth game of the season to go with just one loss to secure a place in the four-team playoff at the end of the curling season.

The top teams in each of the four sessions vie for the coveted Bill Heichert Memorial trophy in a playoff and final to determine the overall champion.

In a well played game team Dan Horan needed a point in the last end to hold off the Coke Koyanagi foursome.

Both teams managed the big curl on the quick ice, but the Horan team eked out a 6–5 win.

In a high scoring back and forth game that both teams repeatedly tried to give away, team Murray Walsh outscored team Forest Drinnan 11–9 for the win.

The Clare Coleman Team scored in only three ends versus the Tom Hall foursome.  However it took a steal of one in the eighth end by the Hall team to tie the game at 6–6.

The Harvey Hadley foursome, lead by a strong game by the front end, dominated the first four ends and held a nine to zero lead.  It proved too big a lead for the Primo Secco team to overcome as they fell 10 – 4 against team Hadley.

One bad end proved the undoing of team Jim Stewart.  A steal of four in the sixth end for Serge Pasquali’s team broke open tight game.  Team Pasquali rode that end to an 8–2 win.
