Ten four-man teams competed in a Curling Cashspiel at the Cowichan Rocks Curling Club, Jan. 19.

Four teams came from Victoria and one from Duncan to play against five Lake Cowichan teams. Most of the visiting teams have had occasion to play against the Lake Cowichan teams at the arena in other tournaments in the past.

There were five draws over the course of the day, with the first draw at 9:30 a.m. and the final draw at 3:30 p.m.

The big money winner was the Dennis Sutton team, who took away $340. Team Sutton also has plans to enter the Brier. Two Lake Cowichan teams tied for second place, the Orest Smycniuk team and the Thor Repstock team, who each ended the day with $190 in prize money.

Following the competition, the arena staff provided an evening meal in the curling club’s lounge.

The next event hosted by the curling club will be for the ladies, Feb. 2 and 3.
