Craig family takes two titles
The Craig family experienced some significant wins, but also an unfortunate loss during the Duncan Curling Club’s men’s bonspiel.
Veteran Wes Craig won the A event with his playdown rink of Blair Cusack, Tony Anslow and Kevin Britt.
Craig’s son Miles Craig was on the team that captured the C event title with Chris Waters, Eric Dellebuur and Brady Barham. The rink was entered under Waters’ name, but he played third and Craig threw skip rocks.
“We just put the team in at the last minute,’’ said Craig.
It turned out to be a winning combination with a tight 5-4 win in the C final while Wes Craig took top honours overall with a victory in the A final over Ken Percival.
Sometime during the wind-up to the bonspiel, Miles Craig had his backpack stolen from the changeroom that included his shoes and other equipment.
Miles Craig is part of a B.C. senior men’s curling championship qualifying team with Jason Montgomery, Jody Epp and Will Duggan and desperately needs his gear for that event in February.
Wes Craig said if someone has the backpack and simply returns it to the front of the curling rink, there will be no questions asked.
Meantime, in the D event, no one won and no one lost the final. That’s because Al Swanson and Gerald Poelman decided they were too tired and elected to split the honours.
The bonspiel had 24 entries.
