Gary Sawatsky’s rink got off to a 6-0 start to take the lead in Haney Master’s Curling, which is well into its Fall Session at Golden Ears Winter Club.
Along with third Gregg Hook, second Arnie Melissen and lead Dick Lyster, the Sawatsky rink began with a perfect record after six games in league competition.
With 17 teams competing this season, Sawatsky is closely followed by Angelo Masaro’s rink of Mike Murgatroyd, Hugh McIntyre and Bill McDowell with a 5-1 record.
In early season bonspiel play last week, a Haney rink skipped by Earl King finished second at Chilliwack with a commendable 4-1 record. Following two convincing wins, they suffered their first loss but quickly regrouped to roar back to win their next two games against very competitive teams from Abbotsford. With Roger Fast as lead, Bob Asher, second and Lorne Fletcher playing third, the rink finished the bonspiel in second place, narrowly losing on points to the Bernie Sparkes rink from Abbotsford.
