Another Haney Masters’ Curling Bonspiel ended successfully on the weekend, with 24 teams enjoying competition for the coveted Ralph Haney Trophy at Golden Ears Winter Club.

After five draws an exciting final saw Abbotsford’s Jim Anderson edge Chilliwack’s George Heagy 7-6 to take the championship in the 57th consecutive year of competition.

The rink of Gary Sawatsky (skip), Don Plummer (third), Cliff Wells (second) and Ed Belsey (lead) from the host-club Haney curled admirably to finish at the top of all Haney entries.

Curlers aged 55 and over from Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows and the rest of the Fraser Valley were treated to superb ice conditions provided by icemakers Don Huber and Terry Gregory,  and a well-run schedule through the efforts of Peter England, Gregg Hook, and Bob Asher.
