A rare event happened for one curling team on the Peninsula last week on Feb. 13.

The team, the Wednesday night mixed league team, achieved what is known as an eight ender — an end where all eight stones score for one team.

It is a very rare occurrence, so rare in fact, that teams who complete an eight ender are recognized by Curl B.C. and the Canadian Curling Association.

“We didn’t really realize it was happening until the last couple of rocks,” said team member Ron Sera.

“The opposing skip attempted two draws through the port, but on his last rock, he was just slightly heavy and it slid just inches through the house which left us with the eight ender.”

The game finished with a total score of 12-3 after a few more ends were played between the teams.

Sera recorded the event and sent the information to Curl B.C. The team is now waiting to receive recognition from the organization on their impressive game.
