As the curling season winds up there  was  a  playoff  for  Comox Valley Curling Centre ladies club champion and  qualification for the North Island playdowns in Port  McNeill.

The eligible  teams in the Tuesday, Thursday and  Monday night leagues were Melanie  Rait, Mare Michell, Barb Dixson, Sandra Gallaway, Mary Holden,  Ellie Nicholas, Gloria Sandberg and Deb Goodwin.

On March 25  the eight teams played off  in a single knockout competition. The  final two, Gallaway and Michell, played off on March 27. After a  close game Michell defeated Gallaway in an extra end.

The Michell rink (skip  Val Schultz, third  Stasia Johnson, second LeeAnne  Alberti,  lead Mare Michell and fifth Colleen Robson) have been successful at the North Island playdowns and now  advance to the BC Dominion playdowns  in Richmond on April 16-20.

"The  ladies league members congratulate the Michell rink on their achievements and wish them further  enjoyment and success in Richmond," a spokesperson said.
