Port Alberni was well-represented in the finals last weekend during the Alberni Valley Curling Club’s Men’s Open Bonspiel.

The 67th annual event drew teams from the Lower Mainland, as well as the South and Mid Island.

Team Reeves (“Irish Enough”) defeated the local Team Gray in the A Event on Sunday, Feb. 23. Team Herbertson from Alberni defeated Team Reinsch from Parksville for the B Event, and Team Harrison (“Clockwork Orange”) from White Rock prevailed over Team L. Cheetham from Alberni in the C Event.
