NORTH SAANICH — Curling at the Glen Meadows competitive level has set a new bar in the winning circles.

The Pacific Coast Masters Curling Association held its annual South Vancouver Island Zone Playdown Jan. 16 to 18 in both the Men’s 60-plus and 70-plus categories.

This coveted event allows all clubs to send their top teams to compete for a single berth to the provincials in the spring.

This year both categories were won by Glen Meadows teams.

Sixty-plus champions Jack Campbell, Dan Eakins, Ken Wigbers, Bob Powell and Dave Bolster are off to the provincials March 30 to April 2 in Richmond.

Seventy-plus champions are Lynn Wilson, Jim Begg, Foster Roze and Grant Marshall.

According to Skip Lynn Wilson, “This success was precipitated from the Senior Competitive League that was formed in 2009 with the intent of providing a weekly opportunity for our senior curlers to sharpen their competitive game.”
