With crockpots in the warm room, CAUTION tape decorating the walls, RVs in the parking lot and curlers on the ice, Evergreen Curling Club enjoyed it’s biggest, best in-house DIY bonspiel ever. Competitors and visitors alike enjoyed good curling, a welcoming atmosphere and the do-it-yourself camaraderie that enabled Evergreen CC to build Oregon’s first curling facility in 2012.
Seventeen local teams competed in three events with Team Schaak (Doug Schaak, Roger Chan, Jimmy Sattem, Adam Seymour, Yvonne Perceval and Bruce Irvin) winning the A Event with an exciting extra-end victory over Team Barber in the final game. Team Smither (Courtney, Tim, Jim and Jay Smither) won the B Event with their only loss coming in a tight game against Team Smoltz on Friday night. Team Jedi Mind Trick (Brian Kuns, Karissa Kuns, Thomas Poon, Neal Oliver and Arnie Iwanick) took the C Event title with a run of consecutive victories on Sunday including a near-perfect draw to the button tiebreaker over the Whirlies in the semi-finals. Congratulations also to Patton Echols and Team Sofa King Lucky who hit the shot of the weekend with an amazing last-end tap-back takeout through a tight port on Saturday night (see replay of it here, fast-forward to the 1 hr 30 min mark).
Many Thanks to the iceops team, the bartending team and the bonspiel committee (Kathy Placek, Steve Liske and Art Placek) who made the 4th Annual DIY Bonspiel enjoyable for all!
