Kotyk rink peaks at right time

The 2015-16 Trail Mens Curling League wound up this past Saturday at the Trail Curling Club

The 2015-16 Trail Mens Curling League wound up this past Saturday at the Trail Curling Club with the Club Championship final followed by the all day Hams n Bacon ‘Spiel.

The 10-team double round-robin regular season, plus two exchange nights with the Rossland Mens Club,  was dominated by the Brian Lemoel rink, who managed only one loss and a tie threw the long season, to sit atop the standings with 33 points. Brian was supported by third Rick Brown, second Alfie Semenoff and lead Dave Kendrick.

Coming in a respectable second was the Les Lepine Rink, with Alvin Caron third, Bill van Beek second and Terry Bublitz lead.

The Club Championship Final had the Lemoel rink pitted against the Larry Kotyk rink. Lemoel stepped out to the early lead, but the Kotyk rink, with Pat Burke third, Dave Muir second and lead Randy Workman, who always seems to peak in March, roared back to be three up coming home, running Team Lemoel out of rocks and winning their fourth Club Championship in the last five years.

In the Hams N Bacon ‘Spiel, the Les Lepine rink was first in the A followed by the Ron Johnston rink, while on the B side, the Larry Kotyk rink came out on top, with the Ken Lunde rink took second.

A big thank-you to Grant Gariepy for doing all the lunch and dinner cooking on Saturday. See everyone back in the Curling Rink next fall, with the Kootenay Savings Super League starting in September, while all other Trail Curling Leagues start in October. New Curlers always welcome.
