Esquimalt curling team scores a rare eight-ender in Duncan
Roger Pick and his curling team are the pick of the crop.
Team members have more than 100 years of combined curling experience and been in too many bonspiels to count. And, yet, this was the first time in each of their curling lives that they achieved the elusive eight-ender.
The team of John Fraser, Roger Pick, Georges Bombezin and skip Dave Smith curl at the Esquimalt Curling Club. Pick lives in Parksville and the other three are from Victoria.
They managed the feat during the senior open curling bonspiel at the Duncan Curling Club Dec. 4.
“Absolutely unbelievable,’’ said Pick of the achievement. “We were able to take something off our bucket list.’’
