This year, curling saw an increase in its visibility in Penticton.
Aside from the Scotties, there were some other notable achievements by both adults and juniors. Our sons, Jacob Martin, Ryan Trip, Zack Kuechle and Matthew Lowery came together in December. They represented the Summerland and Penticton rinks and, under the talented leadership of coach Brian Lyall of Kelowna, earned a spot to curl at the B.C. Winter Games.
They trained hard and took fourth place in Kamloops. None of this would be possible without the dedication of wonderful people who poured their time and talents into these young men. Many thanks to coach Brian, Glen Brennan, Gary Raymond, Craig McLeod and Marilou Richter for the many hours of coaching and advice. None of this would’ve been possible without you. Also, a huge thank you to our sponsors in Summerland and Penticton. Your financial support made it possible and your generosity speaks volumes of your commitment to your communities.
We are fortunate to live in an area where people invest in our youth and thank you to everyone who helped these junior curlers create memories to last a lifetime.
