After four days of intense competition at the Glen Meadows Masters Bonspiel last week, four teams emerged victorious from their divisions.

The Wayne Scott team, comprised of Scott, Lawrence Woytowich, Paul Addison and Gerry Vantreight of Glen Meadows, took the trophy in the ‘A’ division. They were undefeated through the finals and showed off the “cream of the crop” of the league, said co-ordinator Ray Johnson.

“This was nice, because it’s our home club,” said Woytowich. “And believe it or not, we’ve never won our home club. This was our first time winning here.”

“We have the best masters spiels in the province,” said Addison, smilng as he and the team accepted their trophy.

Runner up for the ‘A’ event was the Steve Begg team, also from Glen Meadows, with Begg, Gary Rowe, Al Thomson and Adrian Koolman.

Coming in close behind and winning the ‘B’ division with only one loss to their name was the Garry Franklyn team from Mill Bay, with Franklyn, Terry Bompas, Randy McLeod and Ray Holman.

The runner up in ‘B’ was the Paul Kondal team from Kerry Park, with Kondal, Bruce Ovens, Al Brown and Glenn Marsh.

Winner of the ‘C’ division was the Bob Gallaugher team from Duncan, with teammates Brian Aaberg, Bud Harbidge and James Turner. The Mike Debeck team from Kerry Park took the runner up spot, with Debeck, Dick McCarthy, Ray Hutchinson and Sandy Stewart.

And winner of the ‘D’ division, who had to win two more matches than teams in the ‘A’ spot, was the Wayne Silver team from the Esquimalt Curling Club. Paul Langoon, George Marcyniuk and Denis Lieutard joined skip Silver to beat out ‘D’ runners up from Victoria, the Don Allan team, also with Brian Morin, Phil Marsh and Alf Wiebe.

Glen Meadows’ annual Men’s Masters is a 32-team bonspiel open to players 55 and over, who are members or spares of a Masters curling league.
