Grand Slam curling competitor

Grant Dezura (right) of Maple Ridge competes in the Grand Slam of Curling’s Canadian Open event, which was held in Kelowna from last Wednesday to Sunday. Dezura was part of the Brent Pierce rink out of New Westminster, which was one of two B.C. rinks in the bonspiel. They had a record of 2-3, and failed to qualify. There was stiff competition, as the event was won by Ontario’s Glenn Howard, the reigning Brier and World Champion, who took home $25,000 from the Okanagan. It was the second of four events on curling’s Grand Slam Tour. - Doug Farrow/black press
