Stick curling tournament held on weekend

The first Summerland open Sturling Bonspiel was held Saturday.

The first Summerland open Sturling Bonspiel was held Saturday.

The new sturling (curling with sticks) concept allows former curlers with bad knees, bad backs or just advancing years to resume the fun of the sport.

The sturling spiel consisted of 12 teams of two players with one skipping and the other player throwing six rocks.

Roles are reversed every second end.

The game is six ends only and no sweeping is permitted.

Summerlanders fared well with the Moser/Nicolson rink taking first in the “A” event with Gillespie/Hornquist second. The Salmon Arm and Armstrong rinks took first and second in the “B” event with two Penticton rinks taking third in each of the two events.

The Summerland Curling Club invites all senior former curlers to come to the club Friday afternoon at 3 p.m. to try out the new extender method and join league play. Contact John Nicolson at 494-8874.
