This weekend the Comox Valley Curling Club hosts the annual Eric Chayco Memorial Sunday Morning Men’s Hangover Bonspiel. With 48 teams from up and down the Island as well as the Mainland and even as far away as Calgary, it is guaranteed to be a rocking good time, a spokesperson said.
This event enjoys a dedicated group of followers that return year after year to participate in a bonspiel that caters to the true spirit of the sport. A device set in motion long ago by Eric Chayco. Yes you will see some great (and not so great) curling, but more important you will see camaraderie, friendly competition and renewed acquaintances. Curling games are won and lost, but good friends last a lifetime.
Curling gets underway at noon Friday and continues till late Sunday afternoon. If any guys think they would like to give curling a shot, you are encouraged to drop by the club on Headquarters and check it out.
” have been asked on occasion why we call it hangover curling? My reply is ‘Well we do curl at 9 or 11 on Sunday mornings.’ A knowing nod I get in return,” the spokesperson said.
The bonspiel committee would like to thank the Event Sponsors for their contribution to the success of this event.
