Following news provided by Holly Ross Better late than never but the Pionairs Curling Bonspeil was a big success (sounds like I'm blowing my own horn eh!!). We had a total of 8 teams. 2 YWG, 2 interior BC., one from YYZ area, 2 YYC, 1 YEG and Bill Sim from YUL. Alf Berting from YWG was the overall winner but we had one of the interior teams enter thru the lottery. Next year's locale is a question mark at this time but I will let you know when it is decided. This was the fourth year we have had the event in YYC. We wanted to revive Pionair curling from only 2 teams participating in the playdown. It is interesting to note that as little as five-six years ago the Pionairs had trouble getting one team for the system event. This year we had two full teams of Pionairs plus the YYJ group representing YYJ station. Hopefully someone will change the bylaws to allow for two Pionair teams.' .
